6. Social Content Cubmission Recommendations
We love celebrating the creativity of the embroidery and craft community by resharing your work across our social media channels. If you would like to have your work featured, here are a few of our content recommendations:
- Please use the hashtags #dmcembroidery, #dmcthreads, and/or #dmcfreepatterns to give our social teams permission to reshare your work.
- Tagging your photo with @dmc_embroidery, @dmc_france and/or @dmc_crafts on Instagram will help to ensure that our social team sees your content.
- We cannot reshare images that feature the contributor’s userhandle superimposed on the image.
- We cannot reshare images that feature names or dates.
- Images should be suitable for a general audience.
- Good lighting and high resolution photos are strongly recommended.
- The work should preferably be the focal point of the photo, ideally with a minimalist background.
- These are general recommendations, and we cannot guarantee that your work will be featured.
We understand the importance of originality and crediting artists. That’s why we endeavour to avoid resharing work that has been closely copied from another designer without due credit or permission. If you feel any content has been miscredited, as user handles change over time and through human error, please reach out to customer service and we will open an investigation.
