Also, PSA: finding an image online does not make it yours, adding text or a sticker to it doesn't mean it's now your creation, and copy+pasting it to a t-shirt does not qualify as being "inspired by my imagery". If I sound like I'm ranting, it's because I am. Be nice. Don't steal. Ask permission. Give credit. Be inspired, yes, but then create your own. 💕
Review: "Hello! Just wanted to say THANK YOU for doing such a great job at being vigilant about artists' and designers' copyright.
Over the past few years I've gotten a number of emails from people saying they were trying to use my artwork (without asking) to create a shirt but the company required my written permission first. Every single time, this "company" has been CustomInk.
Plenty of other companies would have printed them without giving it a second thought just to make a quick buck, while you guys make sure customers are using artwork legally and ethically.
Thank you for your integrity!"
