About the Clip Art:

Each clip art pack comes in either color, black & white, line art, or combo pack of both.  The type of image is stated in the title or description of the pack.  Each image is high-resolution 300dpi. Keep in mind that png files are completely transparent and are lossless, thus producing the best quality. Jpeg files will have a white box around the image. These will be my oldest work.

The clip art must be used as a design element (part of the overall project) of your personal and commercial projects. Nikole Casassa retains all copyright to the clip art images.
