Through the Teespring Storefront Service, a Creator has the opportunity to create their own branded storefront (“Storefront”) for use with Creator’s online presence (e.g., social media accounts) (“Creator Online Presence”) and, at Teespring’s discretion, either: (1) Creator’s own web domain (“Creator Domain”); or (2) a custom Teespring domain.

Teespring will enable you to design and customize storefront graphics and layout to comport with your branding. Teespring will have sole discretion and control over the work performed under this Agreement and the manner in which such work is performed. Teespring may utilize independent contractors to perform all or part of the Storefront Services.
Teespring does not charge any additional fees for use of the Storefront Services. Teespring may initiate or change fees for any feature of the Storefront Service if Teespring gives you advance notice of changes before they apply. Teespring, at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different features and different pricing to any Creators. These promotional offers, unless made to you, will not apply to your offer or this Agreement.
