Do you do custom orders?
I would love to but time just does not allow it! I am, however, always open to suggestions and ideas so feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts and I will add them to my creative “possibilities” list!
Do you give donations?
I would love to donate to every worthy cause and ministry but I obviously cannot so I hope you understand that I’ve chosen to support the ministries that are nearest and dearest to my heart at this time.
Can I pick up my order at your studio if I am local?
Yes!! I would love for you to stop by and pick up your order, or just come and visit my studio! Please email me at email@example.com to set up an appointment before placing your order or making plans to visit.

Tools and Supplies…
What kind of colored pencils do you use? What kind of paper do you suggest for printing your bookmarks?
I will soon be adding a page with a list of my favorite supplies and tools.
Is it okay to print multiple copies of your bookmarks and/or coloring pages for ministry use?
Yes. Having been involved in various ministries over the years… especially small church women’s and children’s ministries… I understand the need to stretch the budget and am blessed to be able to help you do that.
In return, I ask only that you include credit where room allows either in a program or bulletin, etc. in order to help share the love and allow me to continue to offer these freely for ministry use. Please include: Art @Karla Dornacher and my website address: www.karladornacher.com.
Am I allowed to use your printable art for creating items to sell myself at craft shows and fairs?
No. Besides offering my art as prints and printables on my website, I also license my art to manufacturers for use on their products so I am not able to grant permission to individuals to create and sell any type of product through any venue… locally or online.
I bought your printable coloring book. Can I print the entire book to give to my friends and family?
Please hear my heart on this one. My intent in offering my coloring books as a printable and giving you permission to reprint it for personal and ministry use, was so you could share pages at your women’s retreat or with your Bible study group or at home with your kids or grandkids or having a coloring party. I never imagined someone would print and bind the entire coloring book and give out hundreds of copies to all the women in their church. (This has happened.) I do not want to have to create a limited permission statement so I ask that, out of respect, you choose up to three pages per event to copy and share up to 100 copies per page. For more than 100 copies per page please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional permission. Thank you for your understanding.
Is it okay to use your art on my blog, website or facebook page?
I love that you would want to use my art on your personal social media sites, blogs and websites… but since my art is copyrighted you will need permission. I do not give permissions to use my art for favicons or profile photos. However, if you do want to include my art in a blog post or website article please contact me at karla @karladornacher.com with the nature of the article or if it’s an interview and let’s talk.
Can I use your art to trace into my Bible?
Yes. You may use the printables that you purchase and download from my shop to trace into your Bible! I encourage you to be creative by adding your own flourishes and personal touches to make it personally your own and have fun with it! If you should choose to share your finished art on social media… please credit me with my name and a link to my website… www.karladornacher.com
I haven’t copied your art but have been inspired by it to create my own. Is it okay to share mine on social media without giving you credit?
It makes me happy to know I’ve inspired you to create something yourself! Yay! If you’re finished art contains recognizable elements from my original art then totally out of respect I would hope that you would want to credit me by mentioning my name and linking back to my website… www.karladornacher.com
Can you help me…
I want to create my own printables to sell on Etsy… can you help me?
I love that you want to share your art and heart with others and I cheer you on… but am not able to teach or mentor other artists at this time.
I am designing my own coloring book… how do I get it published?
I self-published mine on www.createspace.com. Thankfully they have very clear directions and steps to take on how to do it so check them out.
Can I contact you about illustrating the children’s book I’m writing?
My heart does not lean towards illustrating children’s books at this time… but thank you for thinking of me!
Can you tell me how you make your magnets?
I hand made all my own magnets “in the day” and it was a lot of work… but if I were to offer them again, I would search out one of the online print shops like VistaPrint.
I have questions about how to license my work, what royalty rates are fair, should I get an agent, and more. Can you help me?
I am so not an expert in this area… so my best suggestion would be to search out blogs and websites of people who are experts and who have been doing it for a very long time. I highly recommend joanbeiriger.blogspot.com and allartlicensing.com for starters.
