Some crafting customers recently contacted Disney®, if they could sell handcrafted cards made from using the Disney’s crafting dies which was recently launched with the hope of making great sales (making profits), so that they could get the cost of buying such dies after being warned by certain Crafters that they couldn’t sell whatever they make from Disney’s crafting products because it was for family use ONLY.
Some believed that they could sell their craft products (Made with the dies) IF the dies were purchased at a certain date (before July 11th , 2016) (Please, you need it in writing and signed. A telephone call or someone saying that You can sell your crafting products using Disney’s crafting dies is not enough proof).
However, With the belief that some could sell at a certain date, another letter was sent to Disney® to clarify the sale of hand-crafted items using the Disney’s dies. This brought about the clear statement from Disney.
Regardless of when the licensed products have been purchased, these products may not be used by consumers to sell or distribute any items they produce using the craft products outside the private, family sphere- Disney®
Below is a screenshot of a letter received from Disney.
If you can’t read the letter, here is another that has been written.
