Can you explain your licences?
At Black Sheep Press we sell two types of licence: 
1) A site licence which enables you to download the resources on up to 5 computers at one geographical site (suitable for small schools and individual therapists) When you purchase a resource from this website you are purchasing this type of licence.
2) A shared drive/network licence (suitable for teams who wish to share resources, accessed by a specific number of computers/staff members)

Resources bought with a site licence can not be put on a shared drive.

Please contact us directly if you need to purchase a network license/shared drive licence

Black Sheep Press takes the copying and duplication of any of our resources extremely seriously. Our team of illustrators and authors work hard to make sure we produce high quality resources for you and the children you work with.

If you wish to put your resources on a shared drive it is always best to check with us first to make sure you have a licence to do this.

Your license will be printed at the bottom of every page of your resource.  If your resource does not contain this correct information DO NOT use it. If you are unsure of the licence please get in touch:

I am a Private or NHS SLT. Can I email BSP files to schools/parents?

We understand there are pressures to reduce copying, paper and postage, but it would be outside our copyright terms for files to be emailed or uploaded to schools’ computers.

Where there are certain products that therapists feel schools could be advised to use with individuals then it would be appropriate for the school to buy their own copy.

Do get in touch if you have a particular issue. We would always prefer that people ask if they are unsure.

Can I change the image or text in a pack?

No image or text may be digitally modified without permission.

Can I use pictures from Black Sheep Press resources which I have purchased to make Boom cards?

No. Copyright restrictions prevent images being reproduced  in any form or digitally modified.


Are you open and continuing to operate during the coronavirus outbreak?

At Black Sheep Press, customers and our staff and all the children and young people we support are at the heart of everything we do. The last few moths have been incredibly challenging for us all and our thoughts are with each and every one of you, your families, colleagues and loved ones during these difficult times.

Our website is operating as usual (you can access your resources quickly and efficiently by logging in at any time) and we are happy to hear from our customers via telephone.

Ordering via our website is easy, and, when paying by card, resources are available by downloads immediately.

If you prefer to receive your order on CD rather than download, this is not a problem, but please bear with us if this takes a little longer to dispatch as our staff are all working from home.

If you have any questions about using your Black Sheep Press resources with children while they are at home do not hesitate to get in touch.

Can I use Black Sheep Press resources in Power Point presentations?

No. Copyright restrictions prevent images reproduced or digitally modified. You can however,  share the screen with a child which contains the resource you are working with.

Download vs CD queries

Download or CD? Which is best?

We sell all our material as PDF files, on CD, or as downloads. In both cases you can copy the files onto up to 5 computers at one site.

The material and license conditions for the software are the same however you opt to receive it.

Downloads can ONLY be ordered over our website, and must be paid for by card at the time of order. The downloads are created automatically by the website. Links to the downloads are sent by email when the order is finalised.

Once downloaded files are saved to your hard disc there should be no need to download again. However you should always make a backup copy. For a limited period your downloads will be available by logging into Your Account on the website.

If you order the files on CD, you should copy them to your computer and keep the CD as a backup.

If you order items on CD (multiple items would be burnt to the one CD) you can pay by card or opt to be invoiced with the goods. The invoice will be emailed with the order confirmation and the goods will arrive with a copy of the invoice.

I am still waiting for my download. How long should it take?

If you opt to receive your purchased items by download link, the link should be received as soon as you have completed your order on the website. The link to the download will be sent to the email address you specified. Do check your junk folder, just in case.

You could log into Your Account on the website where you will be able to access your download orders. Do contact us if there seems to be a problem.

I have lost or damaged my CD/download. Can you replace it?

You would need to email us with full details of the order in question, ideally with the original invoice number as this is a great shortcut to us tracing and confirming your order. If your order has been within the last five years the basic charge for a replacement CD or download is £25 plus VAT, regardless of the value of the material. If items have been updated however since your original purchase, we would need to make an additional charge to update the item.

How long will my download link still work?

For a limited period of one year your downloads will be available by logging into ‘Your Account’ on the website. We do recommend that material once downloaded is copied to the hard disc of at least one, maximum 5, computers at your one licensed site on receipt, so that you should not need to subsequently rely on still being able to download it. A back up copy can be made on a CD or memory stick if wished. The reason it is advisable to do this is because if an item is subsequently revised, the original version is no longer accessible, and you would need to purchase the new item.
