Your Designs

Our company provides personalised products (hereinafter referred to as “Products”).

The Services allow you to upload your original art, sayings, phrases, text, materials, tags, data, photos, designs and other creations (“Your Designs”), and apply them to a variety of blank items to create virtual products bearing Your Designs (“Your Products”). We may also offer you the ability to create fan-based designs using intellectual property of third-parties that is licensed to us, such as movies, television shows, the armed forces, etc., subject to restrictions imposed by the third-party licensors (“Fan Art”). Your Products, including those bearing Fan Art, can be offered for purchase by others via:

  1. the shared marketplace hosted by us ("Marketplace");
  2. dedicated Fan Art pages;
  3. your own private store (fees apply), set up and run by you and hosted on our website ("Shop"); and
  4. the stores of our retail partners, such as Amazon, eBay, and Walmart (each, a “Partner Store”).

We sell only the blank items for you to customize, and the Services needed to fulfill orders for Your Products and any Products bearing Fan Art that you create. When you use the Services, you are the seller of Your Designs – not us - and you acknowledge and agree that you sell and are solely responsible for Your Designs.

You may not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or otherwise exploit any part of the Services or Products except as permitted by these Terms. Any use of the Services other than as expressly authorised in these Terms and Conditions is strictly prohibited. All rights not expressly granted in these Terms and Conditions are hereby expressly reserved by us.

You acknowledge and agree that any Fan Art you create is owned by the third-party licensor, and you do not acquire or otherwise have any right, title or interest in or to the Fan Art. Our rights regarding use of your Fan Art are governed by these Terms and the terms and conditions of the licensing agreement between the third-party licensor and us and those terms and conditions may change from time to time.

By submitting Your Designs to us, you grant us a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty- or commission-bearing, transferable, sublicensable right and license to reproduce, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute copies of, publicly perform, publicly display and otherwise use and exploit Your Designs in all media and sales channels, existing now or created in the future, as we deem appropriate to provide the Services including, without limitation:

- allowing you to design, market, make available for sale, sell, produce, reproduce and distribute Your Products;

- promoting, marketing and advertising Your Designs and/or Your Products by displaying them on the Website, marketing them through our affiliates and distribution and other partners, and featuring them in magazines, television shows, and movies;

- adding Your Designs to select additional blank items offered as Your Products if and as we deem appropriate;

- modifying Your Designs for purposes of improving the printing quality, display-ability, or enhancing their appearance on Your Products by cleaning up JPG artifacting, resizing to fit dimensions of the blank items to which you have chosen to apply Your Designs, adjusting colors for different printers and Products, and adjusting placement on Your Products; and

- promoting to you other services that we believe will be of interest to you.

Our right to sublicense is limited to third parties we use to provide the Services, process your orders, and/or produce and ship Your Products.

You represent and warrant that you either own Your Content or have a written licence or other valid permission from the applicable intellectual property rights owner(s) (for example, and without limitation, your photographer) to make Your Content available to us for use with the Services and on the Products you order. You further represent and warrant that you will abide by all requirements published through the Services in your creation and submission of any Fan Art.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing paragraph, you acknowledge that we will need to work with Your Designs and Fan Art in order to provide you with the Services and to produce both virtual and actual units of Your Products. For example, and without limitation, we shall copy, and may need to display and/or modify, as well as stream, upload, post, publish, display, email or otherwise transmit or use (hereinafter, “Transmit”) Your Content when making the Products, and we shall distribute Your Content when shipping the Products to you. By the license granted above, you are giving us permission to do this. We will retain Your Designs and any Fan Art on our servers so that they will be available for your future use. This will make it easier for you to create new instances of Your Products or to use elements of Your Designs to create new art, sayings, phrases, text, materials, tags, data, photos, designs and other creations (the end result of which will also be Your Designs), all without the need to upload Your Designs or Fan Art again. We agree that our use of Your Designs and any Fan Art will be limited to our provision of the Services and the Products that we provide.

We reserve the right to reject any or all of Your Designs and any Fan Art if we determine, in our sole discretion, that they are inappropriate or otherwise inconsistent with the exercise of good judgment or the licensing agreement between us and the third-party licensor. For example, and without limitation, we may reject any of Your Content should we believe that it falls within the Prohibited Uses of the Services set forth below.

Fees

We charge a fee for any Shop you decide to set up, and offer two different payment plans for your convenience:

Payment Plan 1: No Up-Front Cost

We will have the right to deduct ten percent (10%) per month from your commission Payments, up to a maximum deduction of Ten Dollars ($10.00) per month.

Examples:

If you earn a Thirty Dollar ($30.00) commission Payment for the month, we will have the right to deduct ten percent (10%), or Three Dollars ($3.00) and make a Payment to you of Twenty-Seven Dollars ($27.00).

If you earn a Three-Hundred Dollar ($300.00) commission Payment for the month, we will have the right to deduct only up to Ten Dollars ($10.00), i.e., not the full Ten Percent (10%), which would be Thirty Dollars ($30.00), so you get a Payment of Two Hundred Ninety Dollars ($290.00).

Payment Plan 2: Pre-pay & Save Money

We will have the right to bill your credit card based on the option you select as follows:

  • Six Dollars and Ninety-Five Cents ($6.95) per month
  • Eighteen Dollars and Forty-Five Cents ($18.45) per Three (3) months (i.e., Six Dollars and Fifteen Cents ($6.15) per month)
  • Thirty-Four Dollars and Ninety-Five Cents ($34.95) per six (6) months (i.e., Five Dollars and Eighty-Three Cents ($5.83) per month)
  • Fifty-Nine Dollars and Ninety-Five Cents ($59.95) per year (i.e., Five Dollars ($5.00) per month)

Payments

To the extent to which the Services and/or the Products or any portion thereof are made available for any fee or charge (including, without limitation, shipping and handling charges), you will be required to select a form of payment and provide us information regarding your credit card or other form of payment authorised by us. You represent and warrant that such information is true and correct and that you are authorised to use the selected form of payment. When you make a payment, you authorise us (and our designated payment processor(s)) to charge the full amount to the payment source you designate for the transaction. You shall promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, and without limitation, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur. You shall pay us all fees and charges incurred in accordance with the authorised form of payment and these Terms and Conditions. If you dispute any fees or charges, you will let us know within sixty (60) days from the date of invoice or otherwise charge you, and give us the opportunity to remediate any problem which you believe entitles you to dispute those fees or charges. You hereby grant us the right to fix any payment processing errors that we may discover, and the right to correct any such processing errors by debiting or crediting the payment method used for the transaction found to be in error.

You will be paid a commission (individually a, "Payment" or "Payments") for all Your Products sold using the Services.

For Your Products sold through the Marketplace or a Partner Store, we will have the right to determine retail prices and any discounts in our sole discretion. You will receive a commission calculated as five percent (5%) of net revenue for each unit of Your Products sold, excluding shipping and handling charges, discounts, rebates, refunds, returns, third-party licensor royalties (for Fan Art), platform fees, transaction fees and taxes.

For Your Products sold through a Shop, we will have the right to determine a base price for each Product in our sole discretion, and you will choose a markup, such that retail price equals the sum of base price plus your chosen markup. You will receive a commission calculated as your markup less a proportional share of any refunds, returns and third-party licensor royalties (for Fan Art).

Taxes: You are responsible for determining what, if any, taxes apply to Payments you receive, for maintaining any required documentation, and for collecting, reporting and remitting taxes to the appropriate authorities.

Timing of Payments: As you sell Your Products, commissions will accumulate in your Account. You will be paid once your Account balance reaches your designated payment threshold. Payments will be automatically made within sixty (60) days after the last day of the calendar month during which your Account balance reaches the threshold.

Waiver of collective or representative action and Agreement to Arbitration

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES THAT YOU AND WE MAY HAVE WITH EACH OTHER BY USING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, WHICH IS FINAL AND BINDING. IN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY AND THERE IS LESS DISCOVERY AND POTENTIAL FOR APPEALS REVIEWS THAN IN COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE WILL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM MADE BY YOU AGAINST US ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THE SERVICE AND/OR YOUR PURCHASE AND/OR USE OF THE PRODUCT(S), REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DISPUTE OR CLAIM IS BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, PRODUCTS LIABILITY, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY (COLLECTIVELY REFERRED TO AS A “DISPUTE”) WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AS DESCRIBED BELOW.

Either you or we will have the right to elect to initiate binding arbitration to resolve any Dispute by providing the other party with written notice of such election. You and we respectively hereby agree, and agree in the further to take all steps required, to waive the right to litigate any Dispute in court, be it by way of court trial, jury trial or class action, and agree that: (1) such arbitration shall be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “Rules”), which are available here or by calling +1-800-778-7879; (2) the arbitration shall be conducted by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with the Rules; (3) the language of the arbitration will be English; (4) the arbitration shall be conducted near your place of residence; (5) we respectively hereby irrevocably consent and submit to exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue as such for the purposes of arbitrating any such action; (6) the arbitrator in such arbitration shall be without jurisdiction to conduct a class arbitration or other representative proceeding, and may not consolidate one person’s claims with another; (7) all issues of enforceability of this arbitration provision, including, without limitation, issues relating to scope, validity, and unconscionability, shall be decided by the arbitrator; (8) the entirety of any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you nor we shall have any right to disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (9) payment of all arbitrator compensation, expenses, and administrative fees (which include, without limitation, filing and hearing fees) shall be governed by the Rules; (10) each of us shall bear our own fees and costs related to any arbitration, including, without limitation, the expense of our respective counsel, experts, witnesses, and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration; and (11) notwithstanding (9) and (10) above, the arbitrator shall have the right to re-allocate his or her compensation, expenses and/or administrative fees, as well as your and our fees and costs related to the arbitration, if he or she determines that a claim, defence and/or counterclaim was filed for purposes of harassment or is patently frivolous.

WHETHER IN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION OR COURT, YOU AND WE EACH WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PROSECUTE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. YOU AND WE MAY EACH SEEK RELIEF ONLY ON OUR OWN BEHALVES, AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO REMEDY INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS. THIS WAIVER OF COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION IS A MATERIAL AND ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION.

In the event that this arbitration provision is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, a modified provision shall be substituted that carries out as nearly as possible your and our original intent as evidenced solely by the language above, and the validity, legality and enforceability of any of the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. If for any reason this arbitration provision is deemed inapplicable, invalid, illegal or unenforceable, you and we each hereby waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any right to a jury trial, any right to recover punitive or exemplary damages, and any right to pursue any claims on a class, collective, or consolidated basis or in a representative capacity.
