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:
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.

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.
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.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
Any one who becomes my Patron for $20 or more per month, I will send you a free “Radio Baghdad” cup.
