How To Choose The Best Stock Image Site For You


There are a lot of really great stock image sites out there and it might seem difficult to choose the best one for you to use.

Here are some tips to consider when determining the best site for you:

  • How many images will you need? Will you need to purchase single images or would a subscription be a better value for you?
  • How much is your budget? knowing your budget limits will help you to find the right company to work with and the right subscription type.  Paying more doesn't always mean you getting more value.
  • Read the reviews. You'll quickly know by reading reviews if a company is worth giving your money to. Is their customer service willing to help when you run into trouble?
  • Who doesn't love a great deal!? Contact the companies you're interested in and see who has any special offers going that you might not have known about.
  • Make sure you read their terms and usage rules. You might sign up thinking you have the right to use images for commercial projects or print-on-demand. Call or email the company and be clear on your usage and let them tell you exactly what subscription you need to purchase.

Vital Imagery Ltd



I often hear people saying they can just get their images from Google or free stock image sites. The images on most "free" image sites are actually copyrighted and you will be liable for using them even if you are unaware of the infringement. Why take the risk? Use a reputable stock image company and make sure you and your business are not at risk.

Schools are also at risk. Vital Imagery Ltd offers two child-friendly websites specifically tailored for school use. Teachers and Students can safely use the images in class projects without worrying about the student or school being sued.

A German school was recently sued (£360) because a student used an image in a project that was copyrighted

York University ordered to pay up after losing copyright battle

American Independence - 4th of July Celebrations

ID: #109229760

Often celebrated with family events and a great show of patriotism. July 4th is when the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence. Though the vote for actual independence took place on July 2nd, from then on the 4th became the day that was celebrated as the birth of American independence.

 
Best ways to celebrate the Fourth of July:

  • Wear your most colorful 4th of July red, white, and blue swag!
  • Visit a national or state park near you. Enjoy the scenery and look for bald eagles.
  • Pack a picnic and head to the park with family and friends.
  • Head to the beach for an afternoon of water, sand, and sun.
  • Take home-made cards to soldiers now living in nursing homes and hospitals.
  • Learn a patriotic song or sing one you already know such as America the Beautiful.
  • Have a bike parade in your neighborhood. Let the kids decorate their bikes with 4th of July swag.
  • Have a cook-out with family and friends. Be sure to take the time to pause and give thanks for our freedom.
  • Attend a local 4th of July parade.

ID: #109915153
Decorating ideas: 

Make home-made toppers with your children.
Print images and cut them out. They can be flags, hats, stars or anything with a patriotic look.

Use them with tooth picks for cupcakes, cakes or with cheese and veggie trays.
  
Print larger images for along fences and to decorate your home. Hang with tape or string throughout the house or backyard.

Decorate items you have at home with American themed borders and banners.

    ID: #109922916
  •  Cups, jars or cans that can be used as utensil holders or for flowers and plants as centrepieces.

Safety Tip:

A good idea when attending large public events is to print name labels for your kids with their first name and your cell phone number in-case you get separated. They can be printed on sticker paper or just on paper and laminated.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

Benefits Of Having A Brochure For Your Business

ID: #1722290

A well-designed, well-written brochure can help sell your company. If you want to grow as a business and reach out to more customers, a brochure can really highlight the benefits of your business.

Along with your website, social networking, advertising and marketing efforts, a company brochure is an indispensable part of your branding process. Most brochures are able to introduce the company, provide a visual snapshot of products and/or services, as well as share features, benefits and contact information. Basically, a condensed version of what a website does.

Compared to other forms of print materials, brochures can be mailed, used on location, or handed out at events. Whether it’s at a large event or distributing them door-to-door, another one of the advantages of a brochure is that they are a simple but effective way to target a specific group of people.  

ID: #1330340
Have you ever received information from a friend or co-worker? Brochures can easily be passed from person-to-person.

You want a good design with visuals, bullet points with brief copy that will create interest – not paragraph after paragraph of text. Too much content and your potential customer will put the brochure down and read no further.

Vital Imagery Ltd sites can help you create stunning business brochures. Our brochure templates are available to suit any industry.

Celebrating Dad

 
iCLIPART.com ID #774119
What most parents want is to know that all their hard word is seen and appreciated. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a great dad in their life but if you are Father's Day is a great time to remind him of how much he means to you.

Here is a list of funny captions to let dad know how much you care and recognize all that he does:

iCLIPART.com ID# 1801506

You're the best father I've ever had.

I feel bad for other people today. Obviously my dad is the best.

Dad, thanks for killing all the spiders.

Happy Father's Day, Dad. You were right -- about everything. 

I can never repay you. Literally.

Without me, today would be just another day. You're welcome!

Dad, you're the cool parent. But I'll deny it if you tell mom.

You might have the worst jokes, but you're the best dad.

iPHOTOS.com ID # 644895

Not all heroes wear capes. Mine wears cargo shorts.

Thanks for putting up with me, Dad!

We all know that Mom did the hard part. But Happy Father's Day anyway!

You're so hip, you had a dad bod *before* it was cool.

I'm sorry for everything, Dad. Unfortunately, the list is too long to explain.


 

On a more serious note:

iPHOTOS.com ID: #1591910
You have given me the best things in life: Your time, your care, and your love. I am truly grateful to have you in my life.

A daughter may outgrow your lap, but will never outgrow your heart.
 

You're the best, Dad. Plain and simple.
 

Not always eye to eye, but always heart to heart.
 

Dad: a daughter's first love and a son's first hero.
 

Life doesn't come with a manual—it comes with a father.
 

I love my dad to the moon and back.
