Buy Cartoons

Q: How do I buy a cartoon?

A: Browse our website to find cartoons for your publication, presentation or other project. Then send us an e-mail telling us how you plan to use the cartoons. We will personally send you a speedy rate quote based on your intended usage. We’re happy to provide you with the kind of personal service you can’t get from an automated shopping cart.

Q: How do I identify the cartoons I want to use?

A: Every cartoon on our website has an ID name/number, such as “edu32” or “fam8”. If you prefer, you can e-mail us a copy of the cartoons you want or use the captions to identify your choices.

Q: How much do your cartoons cost?

A: Because everyone has different needs,  we don’t offer “one size fits all” pricing. We will personally customize a rate quote just for you, based on the type of usage you have in  mind. Because we don’t have predetermined prices, we can be flexible and offer the best possible rates for your project or publication.

As you shop for cartoons online, you can always find someone offering something cheaper, maybe even free. But cheaper is not necessarily better. If the cartoons you choose don’t help you connect with your audience and communicate your message effectively, it’s money wasted at any price. Please consider this as you make your decision.

Q: What do I receive when I buy your cartoons?

A: When you order a cartoon, you will receive a JPEG, TIFF or GIF image by e-mail. We will send whichever image type best fits your particular needs for print or electronic usage. You will also receive a statement of permission for your requested usage and a detailed receipt for your records.

Q: How do I pay?

A: When we send your rate quote, we will direct you to our online order form with several payment options including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, PayPal, check, money order, electronic bank transfer or fax.

Q: How long does it take to receive my cartoons?

A: Shortly after your order is received, you will receive an acknowledgement by e-mail followed by delivery of your cartoon, permission and receipt. Often, the whole process can be completed within minutes.

Q: Do you offer non-profit discounts?

A: We try to be flexible and offer everyone the best deal possible, whether you’re a small non-profit group or a large international corporation. The best way to receive a discount is to order several cartoons at the same time.

Q: Do you offer annual subscriptions for unlimited use of your cartoons?

A: Yes, for certain purposes. Please send an e-mail to tell us what sort of usage you have in mind.

Q: After I buy a cartoon, do I own the copyright?

A:  You won’t own the cartoon or the copyright. You will be paying a permission fee to use the cartoon for a specific purpose that you’ve requested. We retain the copyright to the work, but will authorize you to legally use the cartoon for your newsletter, presentation or project.

Q: If I buy a cartoon for my newsletter, can I use it again in a presentation?

A: In most cases, cartoons may only be used one time, for one purpose…unless other arrangements have been agreed upon in advance.

Q: Can I translate your cartoons into another language?

A: Yes, that can arranged with permission. Be sure to ask us about this in your e-mail.

Q: Can I order a cartoon in color?

A: All of our cartoons are available in both black and white and color versions. Color versions generally cost a bit more than b/w.

Q: Can I buy a different cartoon every day for my website?

A: Yes! We can send you 365 cartoons for your web site, intranet, blog or social media pages.

Q: What if I have a question that isn’t covered here?
