I've attempted to submit two T-Shirts designs, but they have both been declined with the following message:

"To learn more about our approval process and why some designs might not be accepted, take a look at [url]http://www.teefury.com/forum/9609/TeeFury_Design_Guidelines/"

Even after reading the guidelines, I'm still not sure why the designs were declined. Anyone care to help me out? The submissions are listed below:

    Those look like actual photos of things as opposed to artist's designs.

    In a word: Copyrights.

    These images are just compositions of existing copyrighted images. If TeeFury printed them, they would be sued.

    You didn't even make it past the first page of Google Images!

    Design 1: http://www.dupyshon.com/files/2011/11/The-Doctor-s-name-doctor-who-22914081-1200-424.jpg

    Design 2: http://nerdywithchildren.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/dalek1.jpg

    Always assume every image is protected by copyright until proven otherwise - and even then you can be mistaken. If in doubt shoot the original creator an email to double check, or just don't do it. Even if you re-trace or photoshop it will still be subject to copyright as a derivative work and you should not be stealing it or trying to make money from it!

    And yet, if you look in the gallery, you can see designs which obviously use other images..

    Okay, thanks for the help!

    No - in every case the artist has started with a blank page and used his of her own lines to create an new image using skill to place them.

    There are some work-in-progress logs on this forum that show the process. Reference is used, but never directly copied or traced.

    You have just copy/pasted from google images. None of the chosen designs or gallery choices are copy and pasted from google. The Dalek one you linked has already been done, and with original art, sorry.
