"10. Exclusive right of use
Upon successful transmission of the design, the Design Partner transfers to Pattern
Design its unlimited right to use the design."


Sounds a bit off-putting to me

Although social media presence is far from the best way to judge a stock site, the fact that Shutterstock has 292,000 followers on Twitter, and PatternDesign has 158... makes me think that you might not have buyers lining up round the block to license your content there.

I have a few patterns on patterndesign. Their review time is incredibly long and they'll find the tiniest mismatch in your pattern, tiny mistakes that I've never noticed myself even though I check each pattern thoroughly. Therefore I am very lazy about uploading there. But for me it's a tiny side income, like an extra 100 Euro at the end of the year for Christmas. Which means that sales are incredibly low compared to other websites, but still enough for me to keep my account. I currently have 38 patterns on patterndesign.

They partner with other websites, such as prinfab.com and uneekee.com (print on demand websites), so you will find your designs on their partner sites too, and if they sell a product with your pattern, you'll make some money.

On the positive side: they're very responsive to email requests. So if you have questions regarding their terms and where they sell your designs, just email them.

Hope that helped :)

thank you very much to all of you, your judgement was very helpful.

@franzi: patterndesign has a premium section as well, do you know whats all about. Patterndesign told me, that in this section they would sell their own patterns. Now I wonder, how this patterns looks like. Patterndesign does not want me to have a look at these pattern, which is kind of strange...
Any idea?

Hi Josephine,
sorry for my late response, I forgot to turn on notifications for this thread.
No, so far I wasn't aware of their Premium section, so I cannot give you any info.

But if you feel uncomfortable signing up, just don't. You won't miss out on a massive income stream in my opinion. For me personally, Pattern Design is a website that I trust, but there's always a risk when putting your designs online. My major issue with them is the long review process, and the low sales, but maybe my patterns are simply not the kind of patterns that sell well on products, they're more useful for website backgrounds, flyers etc.

So I'll leave the few designs that I already uploaded on their site, and focus my energy elsewhere.
