    Hello! I would like to suggest the creation of an app for this site so that products can be created from cellphones. I personally use my cellphone for everything, and it will be less hassme to have an app for teespring where I may create products as well as track campaign progress.
    -Thank You

    Having this in place is very necessary for persons such myself. To protect my designs protected from copycats. If I can’t get paid for my work because someone else would have already stolen my design and making tons of dollars is distasteful.

      Completely agree not everyone uses or has a computers lots of people use their phones or iPad/tablets

    Thank-you for implementing these policies to deter and eradicate copyright infringers from your site. I am proud of you guys for taking the necessary stance in protecting the artists/designers hard work and our income. It’s my hope that these policies will be strictly enforced and everyone will be properly informed beforehand of the actions and consequences that will be taken against them if the rules are not followed. I will continue to monitor your site for any infractions regarding my designs and I will consider to reinstate my business with you once I see a viable change.

    Suggest that you stop allowing jpegs which can easily be taken off the Internet. I may have 100 designs on your site that have been copied and used on your site. I’ve reported 3 different designs where multiple sellers are using the same stolen design on their product. What if I’m accused of copying and I have the original illustration?

    1. Kate Shoaf says:

      If you are the original creator / can prove original launch date you should be fine.

    I would like to see all the dead profiles removed also, if someone has not been active for more than 3 months… for example remove all there content or hide from view, so the new comers have a chance.
    So Many Crap Designs Cluttering the Site, No Disrespect to the Designers, But do they have any intention of improving or wanting to make a go of this.

    1. Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Reg – this is something we’re looking into.

      1. Venwick says:

        About the trust score, some of us can’t get a customer so I suggest that if you guys could give the newbies a chance by promoting them so that they Can get going and in future they can pay for their own promotion

    Great news you guys are awesome. I have several unique campaigns i want to launch and have been worried about this. I’ve even seen some tutorial videos from folks who just copy existing ideas rather than come up with their own. Thanks for the help. I’m just getting started but hoping for a good year.

  10. Daniel says:

    This is some great and well needed improvements. Great work Teespring team!

  11. JoeHx says:

    This is a good time for everyone to review the terms, just in case you don’t know you’re not supposed to be doing something.

    Thanks so much… You would not believe some of the horror stories I have -and have heard from other artists!
    Its very disconcerting to be ripped off in an already difficult profession, so well done Teespring – Kate Shoaf -and thanks for your vigilance!!!

  19. Andrew (BittersXBourbonSupplyCo. Store) says:

    awesome! Every artist deserves to be protected! 😀

  20. Mary-Dale Amison says:

    Hi Kate Shoaf….speaking of working with original designs….
    I sent a message to seller support, but canyou also advocate with your programmers to have a side view of all leggings on your main page? It’s does Teespring and us as your sellers zero good if a buyer is skimming through leggings and can’t see the actual design because they’re seeing a front view only! At first the response back I got from seller support was that’s the way it is, sorry, you can only get side views from the actual seller’s page. I emailed back to elevate this to a higher level. Your programmers are great at web design, but not marketing. Treating the way leggins are viewed as if they were a Tee shirt is wrong. We expect the design to be mainly on the front of a tee shirt, but leggings are different. All leggings designs would benefit from a side view and buyers will be able to see all products without having to click on a link. Thank you for your consideration.

    1. Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Mary-Dale – it would be good to offer the view to select front or side view (similar to how we offer this with t-shirts). I’ll pass on this feedback. Cheers.

  23. Muhammad Faraz Khan says:

    I create my own design, I am launched many campaign but failed to get any sell I have no budget for advertisement, and I am already done free posting method on social sites. is any way to get any sell organically from teespring site because I do my best for designing and marketing, I need to boosted network as far as possible for my success otherwise I lose hope from this platform

  24. With FTL shipping, there are not any distribution stops between departure
    and destination cities. How do they create sure your items is not
    going to spoil when there is an urgent problem and what forms of shipping timeframes do
    they give PSs. The good thing, however, is that
    for the reason that package doesn’t use up a lot of space on the flight, it is usually not so harmful for make usage of air freight services for smaller shipments.

  25. Marika says:

    What if our design or brand is not yet registered or trademarked. How safe is it to use this platform?

  32. Moheud says:

    Hi, recently I found out teespring disabled my account for some unknown reason. All my artwork is created by myself and some of them which were were owned by third party sources and they promised commercial use, I modified them aswell before using. I contacted [email protected] regarding the issue and all I got was a ticket number and haven’t got a reply since a week. I worked many days and nights to create those designs and all went away in a couple of seconds. Someone please let me know when will tspring reply or atleast tell me the reason behind disabling my account its very discouraging for young creators like me.

    1. Luiza Jordan says:

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    2. Linn says:

      Hello Moheud!
      Same thing happened to me on Teepublic. On Teespring I once got a pop up message that my design was copyrighted but it just went away and my design was still there so it was probably a bug. But I am also always scared they might take down creations made on or canva like Teepublic does…

  33. Sujeet Bajagain says:

    Hi, recently my listing has been terminated two times due to content issue. But all my designs were created by myself. I did not copy the design from anywhere.
