Using Designer napkins for home crafting items

Post by CraftyB63 »

I have started buying napkins for decoupaging canvas and other items.
I have sold a few on local fb buying and selling sites as a hobby and for a small profit.
Some of the napkins have a designer print on them such as a Wrendale animal print for example.
I am concerned that I have read warnings on a napkin sellers site that the some of there napkins have a copyright.
Am I doing anything wrong by using these napkins in this way and then selling for a minimal profit?
I have seen other people selling decoupaged items using designer printed napkins and had not realized that there were potential infringement of copyright.
I would appreciate some guidance as it appears most of my purchased napkins are designer prints without my knowing this.
