Topic: Could any of the stickers be used as decals for model cars? Modelers?

you can use the 4" transparent stickers (for electronics & stuff) and create a whole set of car decals on one sticker, and they're die cut so the customer doesn't have to mess around with cutting.

The question isn't really should/shouldn't you do it, but rather - how likely are you to want to go to court to fight a copyright thief? If you're shocked at the cost of just getting the official copyright done, well, I'm gonna say - not highly likely.

How unique will your images be? If you had a character series or something you might want to think about it. If you're a painter or photographer, you already have the built-in added protection of possessing original raw art/files. But if you're just typical clip art images with some wording added, that's not exactly unique.

So without knowing anything about your particular design images or your biz acumen or social media expertise level, it's difficult to guess how important it would be to get them officially registered. Only you can decide that.

A second monitor is a total game-changer, I can't recommend it enough!

Most TVs today that are even semi-modern have an HDMI port. All you need is an HDMI cable. One end in the HDMI port on your computer, one end in the HDMI port on your TV. Then on Windows just open your display settings and choose Project --> Extend. It's really that simple. Then you can drag & drop things between monitors.

I gave up my old desktop computer when I moved a while back into a much smaller place. I don't have room for one monitor let alone two, LOL. So I sit at a table and work off my laptop (I think it's a 19" screen) connected to our TV (I think it's 40") and it is beyond fantastic having all that extra screen real estate and I didn't have to buy or make room for a second monitor - just had to buy the HDMI cable to make use of the second monitor I already had - the TV. ;) I wish I had figured this out years ago.

Your mileage will vary of course depending on your set up but pretty much everyone I think already owns at least one TV so if you're using a laptop or other easily movable device, all you need is that HDMI cable to try it out.


BINGO! I also use TVs for monitors, they're awesome, plus so much easier to see for older eyes like mine.
