      I’m still waiting to hear back from them. If it is the emblems, I’ll figure a way to blank them out. The second version I used a different pic for the back cover, so it wasn’t that one. It’s still strange, I have been doing this for 4-5 years now and never a problem.

          Well ,just heard back from them. I'm not a FORD fan merchandise member, so they won't accept my calendar design unless I submit it to them, give up all my rights to my designs, and become a member of Ford fan merchandising. I understand protecting their trademarks, but this is ridiculous. You can't even submit a picture of your own vehicle unless you clear it with them. Screw them. Ford has been way to overreaching in stuff like this for a while now. I'm pretty pissed right now, and rethinking my loyalty to Ford and their products.

          So, sorry guys, there won't be a Mustangs and more calendar this year. I may at some later date play their game and join their merchandise outfit, but I don't figure I will.
          For now, I still have the Undead Sleds calendar available. If they ever notice it has a rodded A model in it, they may cancel it too.

          A side note to Steve L, I wouldn't doubt them coming after the board name in the future. Ford is really doing it's fan base a disservice IMHO.

                This paragraph is the one that I disagree with:
                      • Once your product is approved within the Ford FanMerch program, your product and any artwork contained on your product will become part of the Ford FanMerch store on Zazzle and ownership as well as any copyright right, title and interest in the product (and any artwork contained on your product) will be immediately transferred to The Ford Motor Company.

                This is total BS! I'm not going to spend my time creating something then giving it to Ford Motor Company! FORD can kiss my ass!

                    Sorry to hear they made things that difficult. Sounds like I can't even make a calendar with my own car (the Bullitt). Thanks for trying to get it put together. I totally understand why you're upset.

                      I just went to the cafe express website and spent some time reading their contract, sounds about like zazzle:
                      • NO pictures or photographs of products (such as toys). Even if you own a product, intellectual property laws may still prohibit you from selling merchandise that features pictures of it. For example, you cannot take a picture of your famous doll and sell merchandise for that famous doll with that picture.

                      I interpret that to mean you can't use a pic of your car just because you own it. Not worth spending the time to set it up and get cancelled again. Looks like intellectual property laws are putting a stop to being able to use your own pics of things you bought and paid for, just because somebody else designed it. If I'm interpreting this right, you own the product, but not the design of the product, so you can't use that design on your product that you are putting up for sale. If that's the case, anything but natural scenery would be illegal to use. A car or truck is a product, in this case a product of Ford, so it couldn't be used. In the extreme use, even a pic of a gutted abandoned car would still fit that guideline. Seems overly restrictive to me, but nothing I can do about it. I'm not going to fight it. My calendar days are finished I guess.
