Frequently Asked Questions


Why are some designs not approved?

All artwork must be original and free of any logos or copyrighted material. We won’t accept anything racist, pornographic, or anything that could be considered offensive. Surfexpression retains the right to print or not print each design based on extenuating circumstances. If a design is found to be stolen, offensive, or infringes upon someone else’s intellectual property.

How are artists paid for designs?

At the end of each month all purchases are reviewed and royalties are issued electronically using a Free Paypal account. Please keep your latest paypal payment information updated in your member profile.
