myT Content Guidelines

Statement of Principles:

myT believes custom apparel and accessories bring groups and communities together, and we want to help our customers create products with designs that are meaningful and unifying. Our customers have diverse viewpoints and perspectives, which are reflected in the designs they create, and we believe that we all must be tolerant of those with different views.

In rare cases, however, a design proposed by a customer may be offensive or threatening to others who see the design. In such cases, we use the following guidelines to balance our customers’ design goals with the standards and expectations of the public. When a design does not meet our Content Guidelines, we will make every effort to work with the customer to try to create an alternate design that complies with the guidelines below.

Content Guidelines

myT Content Guidelines provide guidance for customers in designing custom products. Our Content Guidelines use a system from “no” to “ok” to account for the range of potential designs, so we can work with customers to create a design that meets these standards. The descriptions under each category are not meant to be exhaustive, and the ultimate decision on whether to approve a design, or not, will always rest with myT Content Guidelines team. myT regularly reviews these policies and updates them as appropriate based on feedback from our customers and team members.
