Word Music is pleased to provide clip art for adult, children's and youth musicals beginning with our September 1999 releases. Using the art provided on each product's product page, your church can create its own personalized bulletins, posters, tee shirts or any other publicity pieces that you need to let people know about your musical!
To find clip art, simply go to the product page of the musical you are using, and follow the instructions in the "Product Features" section.
Questions about Clipart
Is it free?
These images are indeed royalty-free - you have permission for unlimited use of these icons and images on not-for-sale items such as newsletters, fliers, and other items that promote the musical at your church, in your community and online. However, we do ask that you only use these images for promoting a live performance of a complete Word Music musical. If you are creating your own musical or program or creating a recording, whether for sale or giveaway, please contact our Copyright & Licensing page for more details.
How do I get these pictures onto my computer?
On a PC, right click the link and choose "Save Target As..."
On a Macintosh, click and hold the link, then choose "Save Target As..."
I can't get the image to print out correctly or can't get the file to work in my computer program.
The pictures on this website are in standard formats, ready for use in any page layout program or word processor. If you are having trouble, please consult instruction manuals or help for your program. Look for topics like "inserting pictures" or "resizing images." Unfortunately, due to the varied kinds of programs available for document creation, Word Music does not provide any kind of technical support for our clipart via phone or email.
My musical isn't listed... where is it?
If the work was published before September 1999, it is highly likely that we do not have the clip art you are looking for. If you would like to check to be sure, please call your Word Music representative at 888.324.9673.
Also, be sure the book you have is a musical, not a collection. Although some collections may be performed "cover-to-cover," only choral books that are created to be musicals are available as clipart. For recent seasonal collections, cover art will also be available on our site.
If you have one of our choral books and would like to scan or copy the art for your use you may do so with the same restrictions as above (only to promote a live performance of the entire work.) The only exceptions will be for musicals or collections with pre-existing artwork that must be licensed from the original source. Currently, the titles with restricted artwork are:
- The Christmas Post
- owned by the Norman Rockwell foundation and must be licensed for any use. For more information, contact the Curtis Publishing Company.
- Operation Christmas Child
- owned by Samaritan's Purse, available on this website for use only with the musical, no additional licensing needed for usage within the United States and Canada.
- True Love Waits
- owned by Lifeway Christian Resources, not available on this website.
