PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SECTION LABELED “CLASS-ACTION WAIVER AND AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATION” BELOW CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS IN ANY DISPUTE WITH US, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AND/OR ANY OF YOUR DESIGNS, ANY OF YOUR PRODUCTS, ANY PRODUCTS AND/OR ANY PAYMENTS.
Welcome! We’re glad you’re here and thank you for selecting the services that we offer through our websites, mobile applications or by telephone (the “Services”). As the developer of the Services (“we,” “us” or “our”), we want to provide you with the terms governing your use of the Services set forth below (these “Terms”). By registering or otherwise accessing, downloading, installing and/or using the Services, you are agreeing with all these Terms.
You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account and for ensuring that you exit or log out of your Account at the end of each session of use. Your password is confidential, and you may not give it to anyone else. You will notify us immediately of any unauthorised use of your Account or password or any other breach of security known or suspected by you.
Certain of the Services are available via a mobile device, which may include, without limitation (a) the ability to upload content to the Services, (b) the ability to browse the Services and (c) the ability to access certain features through a downloaded and installed application (collectively, the “Mobile Services”). To the extent to which you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier’s standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and it may be the case that not all Mobile Services work with all carriers or devices. By using the Mobile Services, you acknowledge and agree that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to us.
We are in the business of offering personalised products (the “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 licenced 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:
the shared marketplace hosted by us ("Marketplace");
dedicated Fan Art pages;
your own private store (fees apply), set up and run by you and hosted on our website ("Shop"); and
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 customise, and the Services needed to fulfil 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, distribute copies of, prepare derivative works based upon, publicly perform, publicly display or otherwise use, sell, resell or 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 is strictly prohibited. All rights not expressly granted in these Terms 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 licencing 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 licence to reproduce, distribute copies of, prepare derivative works based upon, 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 their printing quality and/or 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 colours 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 sublicence 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 Designs or have a written licence or other valid permission from the applicable rights owner(s) (for example, and without limitation, your photographer) to make Your Designs available to us for use with the Services and on Your Products. 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 and agree 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 will copy, and we may need to display and/or modify, as well as stream, upload, post, publish, display, email or otherwise transmit (including transmission to other countries) or use (hereinafter, “Transmit”), Your Designs and any Fan Art when making Your Products, and we will distribute Your Designs when shipping Your Products. By the licence 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 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 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 judgement or the licencing agreement between us and the third-party licensor. For example, and without limitation, we may reject any of Your Designs or Fan Art that we believe would fall within the Prohibited Uses of the Services set forth below.

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.
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)
To the extent to which the Services and/or Your 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 will 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 will pay us all fees and charges incurred in accordance with the authorised form of payment and these Terms. If you dispute any fees or charges, you will let us know within sixty (60) days after the date that we 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 to us the right to fix any payment processing errors that we may discover, including, without limitation, 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.

Class-Action Waiver 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 APPELLATE REVIEW THAN IN COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE WILL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS.
ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM MADE BY YOU AGAINST US ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS, THE SERVICE AND/OR YOUR PURCHASE AND/OR USE OF YOUR PRODUCT(S), REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DISPUTE OR CLAIM IS BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, PRODUCTS LIABILITY, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY (TOGETHER, 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 each 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 will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “Rules”), which are available at https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/CommercialRules_Web.pdf or by calling +1-800-778-7879; (2) the arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with the Rules; (3) the language of the arbitration will be English; (4) the arbitration will be conducted near the location where you reside; (5) we each 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 will 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, will be decided by the arbitrator; (8) the entirety of any arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we will 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) will be governed by the Rules; (10) each of us will 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 will have the right to re-allocate their compensation, expenses and/or administrative fees, as well as your and our fees and costs related to the arbitration, if they determine 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 CLASS ACTION WAIVER 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 will 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 will 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.
Judgement on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.
We reserve the right to change these Terms at any time, effective immediately upon posting here. Any updates, new services or modifications of existing services will be governed by these Terms. The continued use of the Services following the posting of changes to these Terms constitutes your acceptance to such changes. We strongly encourage you to periodically review these Terms. All prices and features of the Services and the Products are subject to change without notice.
We reserve the right to modify, discontinue or suspend, temporarily or permanently, any of the Services (or any part thereof) and/or Your Products, with or without notice. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, discontinuance or suspension of any of the Services or Your Products.
The waiver of any right under these Terms will not operate as past, present or future waiver of that right or of any other right. No waiver will be effective in any case unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing.
