Instructions on how to properly link/credit us.

A lot of people ask us “Well what’s the catch?” Maybe we’re nuts, but money was never the primary motivation behind EmojiOne. Build it, grow it, and figure it out later. It may not be the smartest business plan, but it’s a lot more fun. Attibution is the only payment we require for digital use, and we’d like to imagine you would want to anyway. :)

Examples on how to link us:

Personal or non-commercial use of our emoji do not require attribution.
