If I’m rejected, will you notify me?
We will do our best to let every artist know of the status of each of their designs but if you don’t hear from us after 2-3 weeks, please assume your design has been rejected. We apologize for the inconvenience but because of the volume of designs we receive, we may not be able to respond to everyone.

Yes. With each design, we will also post one relevant link (portfolio, social media, etc.) Please note that we will not link to any personal shop pages.
