View Full Version : How to use CU

So this is probably a dumb question, but how do you use CU products? I noticed there aren't as many items in the CU packages. Do you combine the CU elements in order to make your own kits? Sorry for such a newbie question!

Hi there! CU items are typically purchased by designers (but not always!). The CU license gives the purchaser the ability to create their own products / kits with those items and sell their own end product. For example, I might purchase a CU Ribbon that I could use in a kit that I sell. A PU item means that you, as the purchaser, may use that item for your personal use, but that you may not create anything to sell using that item. Does that make sense? Many scrappers like to purchase CU items and use them in their own personal work. Jen (who is on theStudio CT and also on my personal CT) just posted something on the blog about this today.

Often you will see things like templates in CU packaging, and this is because the templates are great for a scrapper to use for his or her layout, but CU on them usually means CT can use them for layouts or QPs for their teams and designers can use them for QPs to sell or give away!
