Bad Faith Design Policy
POD is one of the most competitive ecommerce businesses around. There's lots of people trying to work ethically, and corner a part of the huge market for themselves.
There are also "bad faith" sellers, who want to copy the success of others by copying successful designs and making no effort to develop the idea further or create something unique in any way.
It's fine to seek out successful campaigns to get inspiration for your own designs and niche. It's not acceptable to just copy a design you saw elsewhere directly.
If we feel a seller has directly copied another seller's product design, they'll be subject to listing removal and sanctions detailed here as part of our terms of service violations.
If you suspect you have had a design copied, please contact our support team.
Help With Getting Your Own Designs Made
It's real simple to get some designs made that are unique and different enough from others. You can find many budding designers in our Facebook Graphic Design group.
If you see a design elsewhere you really like, ask them to create something inspired by it, but distinctive and unique for you. Make sure the final design could not easily be confused at first glance for the original design that inspired it.
