How do I get unwatermarked comps?
Contact our sales department for medium resolution, unwatermarked comps.
I need a high resolution comp for a presentation to my client, is that available?
We charge $100 per image for a 1 time presentation to a client. If the client licenses the photo for further use, the $100 will be credited towards that fee. To obtain a High Res, please contact the sales department.
Royalty Free pricing (RF)
For images marked with the RF watermark, these are available for Royalty Free use, for one client, for a one time payment of $500 USD.
Rights Managed Pricing (RM)
Any image that DOES NOT have the RF watermark are subject to Rights Managed Pricing.
The quickest way to determine RM pricing is to contact sales department. Erickson Stock does not offer a traditional pricing calculator. Because our customers tend to have multiple usages over multiple images and pricing becomes too complex for a simple calculator.
For all RM images, the fee to license an image is based on specifically how it will be used. For example, if the image will be used in a brochure, the license fee will depend on how many brochures will be printed, whether the image will appear on the inside or cover, the size of the image, the region in which the brochure will be distributed and the period of time over which the brochure will be distributed.

Other Pricing FAQ's
Do you offer unlimited use?
We do offer pricing for unlimited use for a specific period of time. This is usually your best option if you will be using an image extensively. In order to provide you with a quote for unlimited use we need to know the duration, the region of use and if you want to include outdoor use (billboards, transit shelters, etc.) as part of the license. We also offer unlimited use on either a Non-Exclusive, Industry Exclusive or Blanket Exclusive (all industries) basis. We do not offer exclusivity on a regional basis except by country or continent.
Do you offer images with Exclusivity?
Unless otherwise requested, all of our images are offered on a non-exclusive basis. All Exclusive options are only offered by contacting the sales department. We can also offer quotes for Industry Exclusive and Blanket Exclusive (all industries) pricing. Exclusivity can add substantially to the cost of the usage fee but it guarantees that competitors will not be using the same images. Exclusive uses normally include Unlimited Usage, excluding outdoors uses.
What types of payment do you accept?
For US clients we accept an official corporate Purchase Order, credit cards and wire transfers. For clients located outside the US we accept credit card payments and wire transfers only. Images will only be released upon receipt of a Purchase Order (US only) or full payment by credit card or wire transfer.
How do I receive images I have licensed?
For RF image licenses purchased through the e-commerce system, the high resolution files are available for immediate download upon checkout. For all other licenses, once we have payment or a Purchase Order (US only) we will upload the image(s) to our FTP site and then send an email with access information on how to access the image(s).
Do you offer discounts for purchasing multiple images?
We do offer discounts for multiple RM images licensed. Please contact the sales department to inquire. We do not offer any further discounting on our RF images regardless of how many you license.
When does the usage period of the images begin?
The usage period for licensed images begin on the date we release the image (upon receipt of receive a Purchase Order (US only) or payment via credit card or wire transfer) unless we are informed otherwise prior the release of the image.
What is your cancellation policy?
Once payment or a Purchase Order has been received, a refund of up to 50% may be issued if cancellation is within 14 days of purchase, and image has not been used. If the image(s) have been used in any way, no refund will be provided. After 14 days, no refund will be provided.
