Help! My campaign was removed and I don't know why

Did your campaign (including the design, URL, title, or description) include any of the following?

  • A trademark or logo that belongs to someone else

  • Colors, logos, names, players, coaches, or numbers from any professional or collegiate sports team

  • Lyrics, artwork, names, and/or designs related to any musical act

  • The name or likeness of any celebrity or fictional character

  • Any content from a television show or a movie (characters, places, artwork etc)

  • A copyrighted element belonging to someone else

  • The name or logo associated with branches of the United States Military or the military of another country

If so, your campaign was likely removed for violating our IP Policies. Please check all your remaining campaigns to ensure your other content is not in violation of our policies.

What happens to my campaign now?
Your campaign is no longer active. If you re-launch a campaign with the same content, you can be subject to account termination under our repeat infringer policy.
 
My campaign was removed and I don’t think it violates any of the reasons above.
Your campaign could have been removed for violation of our Priority Policy. This policy protects all of our users from having others copy their campaign. If we found that your campaign was copying another campaign that was launched before yours, your campaign would have been removed. Check the email that you use for your Teespring account, and you will see more information about your specific case.
 
What happens if more than one of my campaigns was removed?
If you have had multiple campaigns removed, you may be in violation of our repeat infringer policy. Multiple violations of our policies can result in account termination.
 

What happens if my account is disabled?

Once your account is disabled, you are unable to login to your account and access any of your campaigns. You are also not able to access any remaining profits. If you feel your account was disabled mistakenly, please let us know.

What happens if I own the rights or have permission to use a particular trademark or copyright?
