Did you see an image and wonder, "that would look great on a shirt"? How do you know if printing the design is forbidden? Before we can answer that, you need to know that copyright infringement is when someone, in the case of print on demand, reprints copyright-protected material without the copyright holder's expressed permission. The copyright law help ensures the owner of the design receives compensation for their work.

We've come up with a general guide to help clarify what we do not allow:

No famous political images, including cartoon representations

No photos, parodies, or other artwork representing a celebrity

No phrases, quotes, verses, or sayings that you didn't write

No logos, mottoes, or names

No sports team, club, college, or organization logos

No images from platforms such as Google images, Flickr, or Instagram

No movie or tv series logo, name, or image

No comic or cartoon personalities or representations

No images from memes

Any orders involving a copyrighted design may be canceled by the Fuel customer support team. Multiple infractions may result in a temporary or permanent suspension of your Fuel account. If you have any questions, please contact support@getfuelpod.com.
