Guidelines for Use/Licensing Terms & Conditions

We have designed this website to make Jan’s distinctive work easily available, and we are delighted by the opportunity to support you in the life of your community or for a unique event. We know most folks don’t have occasion to give thought to copyright issues, so we’ve put together a few guidelines to help you discern the appropriate use of this artwork. Honoring these guidelines makes it possible for Jan to provide this artwork.

This website is designed primarily to provide high-resolution images for use in worship and educational settings. Acceptable use of these images includes:

  • Worship bulletins
  • Projected displays in worship
  • Use in classrooms and other educational settings
  • Newsletters and websites of churches and other organizations, where income is not derived from such use of the artwork, and artwork is not used as an identifying logo

Purchasing and downloading an image for use in these settings implies that you have our permission to use the image in this way. If you download an image from this site to use in one of the above ways, you do not need to contact us for additional permission.

We are pleased to be in conversation about using these images in ways not listed above; please see “Other Uses” below.

In using Jan’s artwork, you agree to include this credit line:

Title of artwork © Jan Richardson.

If projecting the image, a credit line is not required in the projection, but providing a credit line in printed form (for instance, in a bulletin) would be a most welcome way of supporting Jan’s ministry.


We are pleased to offer an annual subscription that provides you unlimited access to Jan’s images, for the above uses, for an entire year. This is a great way to reduce your per-image cost if you would like to use a number of Jan’s images. Purchasing a subscription means that you can use any image on this website in the course of a year, or you can use a single image on more than one occasion in a year, for no additional fee, provided it falls within the above guidelines. After a year’s time, if you wish to use an image you have already downloaded, we ask that you either renew your subscription or download the single image at the per-image fee. Downloading an image does not constitute permission to continue to use the image after the annual subscription has expired.


If you would like to use Jan’s artwork in any other way, please contact us to make these arrangements, as other guidelines apply. Other uses for which we regularly receive requests, and are delighted to be in conversation about, include:

  • Book covers and/or interiors
  • Magazines, journals, and other publications
  • Greeting cards
  • Logos
  • Conference posters
  • Church devotional booklets
  • T-shirts
  • Adapting Jan’s artwork for banners, vestments, and other liturgical uses

Permission must be granted for any of these uses, as well as for any instance in which an organization, corporation, or individual will derive profit from the use of Jan’s artwork. To request permission, please visit the Copyright Permissions page on Jan’s primary site.

Your downloading of any image on this website indicates that you agree to these guidelines. It further indicates that you agree not to alter the appearance of Jan’s artwork (cropping an image, colorizing a black and white image, changing the color of an image, etc.).

There’s some additional legalese that we need to include, but the guidelines above constitute the main stuff we need for you to know. If you want to read on, we suggest you pack a lunch. We thank you kindly for your consideration, and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve you!
