Copyright notice on artwork
Feb 22nd, 2007, 12:41am
I read on another post that the back of the card will be generic, as least for the time being. Therefore, no copyright notice to indicate ownership of the artwork.
For maximum legal protection, I want to display a copyright symbol and my name. Would the only option be to discretely include it with the cover art? Or perhaps somehow inside the card?

Hi PJ,
Correct the back of the card image is a single generic image to be used for all cards.  
For now the only place for you to address copyrights is on the front of the card.  You could put this in the image by credits that you create with each card.  ie: "Copyright: PJ Ryan"

Maybe the option of actually adding a discreet personal copyright to the actual image before using on the card, I do this on my photography and wondered about doing so on my cards too, more unique to the artist that way.  
I haven`t done so as yet but wondered what the general opinion would be?

Hi there!
We always put our copyright notice on our cards when we're creating them in Photoshop rather than use the "Image By" option offered by GCU because it gives us much more control over the placement.
