This has probably been posted a million times before but I can't figure out the right keywords to search on.

If I just want some generic digitized designs (I'm starting an embroidery store so I'm building up stock to embroider then photo for my website) are there any websites that are large libraries of designs to buy? I've found a few personal sites but I'm after ones with a big catalog that when I buy a design I can embroider it on an item and sell the item without copyright infringement. I'm after anything and everything from trees to teddy bears to fire engines to dragons (just things that pop to mind randomly).

Suggestions anyone? (preferably where people aren't charging an arm and a leg of course)

* I have bought designs from these sites, they stitch well.

I enrolled in the stitchitize learning studio, back in 2002/03, lessons were very helpful ( I did all 12).
I also bought Digitizing 101 from Strawberry Stitch, it is pricey around AUD$300, but very good for those just starting out with digitizing or for those who have been doing for a while. Gives the basics and explains in a very clear and easy to understand way. Excellent book.
