What is your policy on refusing to print certain content?
We reserve the right to refuse to print without reason. If you upload graphics to this site, you must have the authority to reproduce those graphics. You can not use our service to make copies of copyrighted works. We may refuse your order for any other reason, including but not limited to obscene, pornographic or offensive content.
I have a copyrighted design I want to print, what is your policy on not competing with your customers and displaying my product on your website?
MakeSigns does not knowingly infringe our customer’s copyrights. We do not show your designs or slogans to others without your permission. Sometimes we post great looking designs on our site or social media. If you would rather not show your design, you can opt-out during the checkout process or on the account settings page. By uploading your content you give MakeSigns a license to use your content in the production of your order. For further information see the Terms of Service agreement.
How can I include a copyright notice on my design using your template?
We can put a copyright statement in very small type at the bottom of your design. Tell us exactly what you want added in the special printing instructions box on the preview page. You can get information on copyrights from the library of congress at www.loc.gov. Normally, a copyright notice includes the copyright symbol, date, and name. For example: © 2005 Acme Publishing.
You can only copyright your own original uploaded content. Template designs, content and previews on the web site are protected by copyright, trademark law and other state and federal laws. We have licensed with publishers of several clip-art and photo libraries to use their art when we print customized items. This license does not extend to end users, so you may not copy our previews or the actual products we print which contain this content.
Can I make copies of the preview image of my order?
MakeSigns reserves all rights to the designs, content and previews on the web site. You may not duplicate or distribute for any reason without the express written consent of MakeSigns.
Can I use a preview image on my own web site for promotional purposes?
MakeSigns reserves all rights to the designs, content and previews on the web site. If you wish to use a preview image for promotional purposes please contact MakeSigns for written permission.
Can I upload someone else's copyrighted material to be printed?
No, users are prohibited from using the MakeSigns Service to print merchandise that infringes third party intellectual property rights.
I received my order late due to a shipping error or delay, what is your refund policy?
If there is a service delay caused by FedEx, let us know and we will try to get a refund on the shipping cost and pass it on to you. If the delay is for reasons of weather/or “act of God”, FedEx will generally not refund the shipping cost. MakeSigns is not responsible for shipping errors or delay due to weather.
There was a mistake with my order, can I get a refund?
MakeSigns is committed to customer satisfaction and we want to exceed your expectations. Please see Our Return Policy for more information.
