Beware of Counterfeit Tampa Jerseys
It has come to our attention that there are several sites out there that are using our designer, Luc's, original Tampa Raptors design to sell jerseys that have not been authorized. None of these sites have asked for permission to do so, nor have they been granted that ability. Additionally, they are using NBA and Nike logos as well as player names to make them look more legitimate, despite not being affiliated with the NBA, Nike, or any of those players.
As a small business, there isn't much we can do in these situations as many of these knockoff/counterfeit jersey websites are based overseas, and have no obligation to take them down, while there are too many of them to go after, with more popping up every day. It has made it very tough for us as we are trying to do the right thing, so all we can really do in this situation is warn you as a consumer and hope you can support a small business and designer.
We aren't going to name every single site out there that is doing so, but if you see any site selling one that features this image (they all do), we would advise you to steer clear of them as they are selling counterfeit jerseys of Luc's design without our permission and looking to profit off of someone else's design and hard work. Additionally, we had to change our Raptor logo to a gator as we didn't want to violate any copyright issues with the Raptors or NBA, while none of these sites have done so, further showing that they are unauthorized.
We are the only site that has partnered with Luc Samanski directly for his creative Tampa Raptors design, so in buying from us over these knockoff sites, you can be sure that you are directly supporting him over these scammy websites that have stolen his design and our jersey. We obviously can't tell you what to do, but as a consumer in these situations, we want to make sure you are as informed as possible, so if you are looking to buy a Tampa Raptors jersey, we hope you can support us with this information in mind.
As always, please let us know if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
