Disclaimer

  • I cannot be held responsible if your printer malfunctions or runs out of ink during the printing process of our products. It is your responsibility to check that you have enough ink and have used the correct paper weight for your printer to handle.
  • Colors may look slightly different when printed. They won’t be as vibrant as viewed on your computer or device screen. Monitors display colors differently than printers do, however, all OIM printables are created with a CYMK format for printing.
  • Open Image Media has (2) two types of clip art: Hand-painted & Digital.  While both are hand-drawn, the hand-painted (unlike the digitally painted) versions may print softer or produce a watercolor-effect.  This should be taken into account when purchasing and printing these items.

PLEASE NOTE:

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, April Lee. For questions about this blog, please contact april@openimagemedia.com.

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, affiliate programs, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.

The compensation received will never alter or influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.  All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network or affiliate program for topics and products that I use and love.

The owner(s) of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites or other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the those of April Lee. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

Affiliate and Sponsored Posts

Posts may include a button which will disclose specific information.  The disclosures you will find are as follows:

  • PR Brand Sample This post features or contains brand samples sent for consideration.

Brands, marketing affiliates and retailers will send me products to try.  I will test and review the product and consider the possibility of featuring it on the site.   Consideration is at the sole discretion of Open Image Media and I do not accept compensation in return for product reviews.

  • OIM Sample This post features or contains product(s) purchased by Open Image Media for review. 

Posts with this disclosure identify products in all categories that we have purchased ourselves for review.  All product reviews posted on OpenImageMedia.com only appear on the web site based on our personal enjoyment of the product and I strive to only share products that are exceptional and open, honest reviews in the interest of my readers and customers.

Sponsored posts are specific posts in which we receive compensation.  Examples of this could be (but are not limited to) prizes, giveaways, or monetary compensation for product mentions.  I do not review or endorse products solely for compensation and we will never endorse products that do not reflect the mission of our site.

  • Affiliate Links Affiliate links are used where a commission is given by a sponsor and/or retailer when clicked, followed, or purchases are made.

Most of our third-party links are retail affiliates in which the commission comes straight from the retailer.  I may receive commission per click or per product, ranging anywhere from 1% to 20% depending on the affiliate or the product purchased.  Thank you, sincerely, for all your support!

I do not have paid or sponsored posts or products unless stated clearly in that blog post by the buttons described above. Once again, for the information and disclosure to my viewers, customers, and readers, all posts will be clearly marked.
