- Sale of your products
3.1 The retail price charged to customers who purchase your product is made up of the manufacturing fee charged by the third party manufacturer, Canvas Freaks’ fee for hosting the marketplace and facilitating the transaction (the manufacturing fee and Canvas Freaks’ fee are referred to collectively, and inclusive of tax, as the “base amount”), your creator margin (“your margin”), and any relevant sales tax (such as Sales Tax, GST, VAT, etc) that Canvas Freaks and / or you (as the case may be) are liable to account for to the appropriate tax authorities. Shipping charges will also be added to the retail price. When making each individual work available for sale you are able to select any percentage markup you wish, greater than or equal to zero, above the base amount but below the automated upper limit set by Canvas Freaks (subject to change from time to time). The percentage markup selected by you on the website for each of your products is used to calculate the dollar value of your margin for each sale.
3.2 You may change the percentage markup on top of the base amount at any time by changing your selection on the website. We may change the base amount at any time without specific notice to you and this will affect the dollar value of your margin, which is calculated as a percentage of the base amount (e.g. if we increase our base amount, your margin will also increase). The retail price will not change on an individual sale after a customer has submitted an order to the website.
3.3 Canvas Freaks will send you an email to the email address you registered in your account to notify you when an order has been placed for your products.

5.1 Each party is responsible for their own taxes associated with each transaction and will account for any taxes imposed by governments or governing authorities, and related accounting or audit requirements arising out of, as a result of, incidental to, or in connection with obligations under this Services Agreement. We recommend that you consult with your tax advisor as to the application of taxes for you, as the seller of the merchandise. This may include Sales Tax, VAT, GST and other transactional taxes.
5.2 Canvas Freaks will not collect or pay taxes on your behalf as Canvas Freaks is merely acting as an agent in facilitating the sale of your product to the customers. As stated in clause 4.2 of this Agreement, the amounts distributed to you will be deemed to be inclusive of any taxes, if applicable. You will at all times be solely responsible for reporting and remitting any tax liabilities arising out of the sale of your products together with any potential interest or penalties that any tax authority may levy as a result of non-compliance. If you are registered for VAT in the EU, Canvas Freaks may, upon your request, provide you with a VAT invoice for any charges levied by us.

ALL AGREEMENTS RELATED TO CUSTOMER SERVICES
- Post Purchase Discount Use
1.1 The post-purchase discount allows customers to use a 30% off discount code to complement their original purchase. This discount code is offered for only 1-2 hours after an original purchase is placed. We offer this discount because we LOVE our customers and want to give them amazing deals!
1.2 This discount code can be applied to a second order only. However, it CANNOT be applied to the original order. There are marketing costs associated with bringing visitors to our website. The 30% code is available to customers only because they’ve already purchased an original order for full price or a slight discount. Since the first order covers the marketing costs, we can AFFORD to give our customers an amazing 30% off on their second purchase.
1.3 If you replicate your original order with the second order and use the 30% off code. We CANNOT cancel the first order for you and allow you to keep the second order. Unfortunately, both orders will be voided. We simply cannot afford to give a 30% discount on our product up front.
1.4 If you place a second order using the 30% off code for different products, and then cancel your first order, we cannot accept your 30% discount code for the second order. This 30% discount code ONLY applies if you keep your original primary order.
1.5 Agreement 1.1 - 1.4 is VOID in the occurrence that you receive your original order and the product arrives to you damaged or with pixelation issues. If you're returning your original purchase for a very legitimate reason, then we can definitely understand and allow you to keep the second purchase for 30% off.
Note from Canvas Freaks: We understand that our customers are very intelligent and will search for bargains wherever possible. We, at Canvas Freaks, are very generous with our discounts. We want our customers to have the best possible experience. Please do understand that we have many costs associated with our products and simply cannot afford to give 30% off on a purchase without a preceding purchase which covers the marketing costs. This is not us being greedy, we promise. We simply cannot afford it.
2. Custom Orders
2.1 You hereby indemnify and will keep Canvas Freaks indemnified from and against all claims, debts, accounts, expenses, costs, liens, actions and proceedings of any nature whatsoever, whether known or unknown by any person, arising from, incidental to, or by virtue of, the appointment, or any breach or non-performance of your obligations under this Services Agreement or arising out of your willful act, neglect or default in the performance of such obligations.
2.2 Copyright: You hereby claim all copyrights and intellectual property rights to the images that you upload for us to print.
2.3 We will not resell any images you upload to our website for custom printing. It is meant for you and you only.
3. Relating to Shipping and Estimated Delivery
3.1 Under all products on our website you will see a small section that shows your estimated product arrival date if you are to purchase the product "today". This likelihood of you receiving your product purchase by this date is extremely likely for US customers. In most cases (90% of the time) you will receive your product on or before this date. Unfortunately, due to holiday volumes and certain product manufacturing times, there may be a slight delay at times. Most often these delays occur with custom/personalized products that need additional customer approval before production or international orders. This delay will not be substantial. At most, it will be a 1-3 day delay. If it extends beyond that, there is very likely a shipping issue with the shipping carrier. Reach out to us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will resolve any issues for you as soon as possible!
3.2 All International Customers outside of the USA are responsible for paying their own customs duties/taxes/VAT. We are not responsible for paying customs duties for you. We do not collect them at the time of your purchase, so you are responsible for paying your government! A refusal to pay customs duties/taxes for a custom product that returns to us will not result in a refund for you. All of our products are made to order. When we receive a custom order, we are not able to resell it so we cannot refund you.
