This is what they found offensive.

Cafepress is Shadowing Blocking Me

Cafepress will not publish anything that has been on the Internets, or copyrighted or images of celebrities.

A “pending” image is one they’ve blocked, pending you removal of the offending image.  Sure some are legit, but take a look at some of these:

The F-117, F-4 and F-16 are all my original artwork. Apparently, they don’t support people who are anti-white racists (the BBQ police).
The MQ-1’s are original artwork. Apparently, cafepress is anti-military. There are no copyrights on military patches. I checked.
Two ,more original paintings. Cafepress is anti-gun. You can’t even be a father if you’re holding a gun. Yeah, that’s original too.
More anti-military stuff and you can’t like Snookie either.

Now it gets good and shows why I think they are shadow banning me.  These are ones I actually sold.  But when I made too much money or attracted too much attention, they were banned. “The Seven Deadly Sins” was a special order for a ping pong team.  That order was cancelled, but this image became one of my best sellers.  Why was it banned? Who knows? You tell me.


This one is my favorite.  I  have  100’s of requests for this one.  In fact I’m looking for a company to make a real patch for something less than an arm and a leg.  As you can see, I’ve sold at least one.  Actually, about a dozen.  But then, cafepress suddenly bans it.



So I asked them what was being blocked and why.


Yeah, but why?
It’s an F-117 not a B-2. Nice try.

I’ve pointed out their copyright infringements.

Then there’s the “Marketplace”.. That’s where Cafepress sells your stuff and instead of getting four bucks a sale they pay you pennies.


Surprise, surprise!  I sell art on another site.  Along with selling quality art products, they also let you sell shirts and cups and stuff.  Much better quality and easier for me to get it to my customers.

Instead of this one…..

Try this one.

When the first person buys the “Radio Baghdad” cup, it’s off to the races and I’ll shift over.  If you order from my cafepress site, leave what happened in the comments and I’ll put what you wanted on the Art site.


Any one who becomes my Patron for $20 or more per month, I will send you a free “Radio Baghdad” cup.
