What is 1create all about?

It was born out of a common frustration creatives have and developed by creatives for creatives.

1create is a Professional Platform for Artists and Photographers. Empowering you to Become a Gallery Owner.
We believe creatives should be able to earn a living doing what they love. When people go to work or sell products they expect to be paid for their time, expertise and costs.

Why should it be any different for creatives?

You are creating something many people are unable to but want.

You should get paid when you invest in yourself.

It takes time and effort to create, using your expertise, creative mind and buying supplies costs money.

It’s only fair and makes perfect sense to reward this talent and amazing creations in monetary terms. Our goal is to match creatives with buyers that understand this.

Questions about Intellectual Property

Is my work protected on your website?

This is something we take very seriously at 1create limited.

We work hard to protect your work on the website employing a number of different approaches such as no right click so people can not copy straight from the website, no download options for images and are also registered with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) which we also advise our members to do as well.

Further to that all members are required to agree to very specific Terms and Conditions that also cover intellectual property and copyright. Each piece of artwork must be accompanied with a signed Certificate of Authenticity by the artist that produced the work.

If members are seen to breech this agreement (particularly the Intellectual Property sections) they will be passed on to the relevant authorities and pursued with the full extent of the law.

We also implore you as an artist to take your own steps to protect your own intellectual property as we all have to work together to protect this.

You must ensure that you have all the relevant licenses to sell your work if you have given the rights to another party and agree to indemnify 1create limited if you fail to do so.

Why do I need to sign a certificate of authenticity?

To provide evidence to the purchaser that you are the originator of the work.

To protect you and your work from copyright infringement as this validates you as the originator of the work. Anyone else claiming to have bought your work via your shop on 1create.co.uk will have to produce this certificate (as well as other criteria) to prove it.

Do customers receive a copy of certificate of authenticity?

Yes. A certificate will be affixed to the print accompanying it on shipping.
