Frequently Asked Questions

What are your guidelines?

All content is free to use for your publication. Feel free to adjust the formatting of all articles and photos to fit your needs. Please avoid making changes to the copy, including removal of references to products and services associated with specific brands.  You must retain the Brandpoint attribution so that our monitoring services can identify our content. This attribution eliminates the need for tear sheets. Note: Images associated with an article can be published only as an accompaniment to the article's text. Any other use is prohibited.

Is there any cost involved when we publish an article?

All articles and photos are free to download and use.

Do I need to send tear sheets?

Brandpoint does not require tear sheets to be sent back to us when you publish an article. We try to keep our service easy and convenient. However, we appreciate any tear sheets we do receive, so please feel free to send them to: Brandpoint, c/o Media Relations, 850 5th St South, Hopkins, MN 55343

Note to editors: In an effort to make it simpler to use our content and images, we’ve recently omitted any watermarks from photos and also simplified the photo options included at download. For articles posted after April 24, 2015, we are including one RGB image (at 1200 pixels wide and 300 ppi) along with the text file. If you prefer CMYK format, please contact us.
