Copyright Notice


If You Suspect Trademark or Copyright Violations On This Website – Please Read

Many of the sources of my t-shirt designs have been found on the internet. I have been careful to NOT use any images that are protected by trademark, copyright or may be considered as intellectual property. Unfortunately, many images found on the internet lack trademark or copyright holder information.

If your are the owner of ANY trademarked, copyrighted or intellectual property image that I have used for a t-shirt design, please be assured that it was NOT my intent to use your image without first seeking permission from you.

Further below on this page I am providing a form that will allow you to advise me of any violation.

I will be perfectly willing to immediately remove any questionable t-shirt design from my inventory or if you are willing to grant me permission for it’s use, I will be willing to give you full credit and recognition on the particular t-shirt product page.
