I am designing and printing note/greeting cards and business cards, etc. from my Broberbund Print Shop program.  If I use the graphics in the program on my cards and then sell the cards, is that a copyright violation?  I have printed like ten note cards, bound them together to sell them as a pack.  I put a logo on the back and my "business name", which I got the logo from the graphics in the program.  Is this considered a copyright violation?

Are there any materials that came with your program that indicate what you are licensed to do.  The programs that I've used that come with artwork invariable have been clear about the subject.

Dear Mr. Clark,
What you said was so true that I was not even going to comment, until I realized the advise is to READ before you buy.

Ugh...
 
The authorization in that license seems to prohibit what you want to do.  Perhaps they sell a deluxe (i.e. more expensive) version of the same software that allows selling the output.
 
Read literally, the license prohibits creating things for sale using the program even if you do not use any vendor supplied graphics at all.    
 
Were the license terms available prior to purchase?
