First of all, thank you so much for being a Sansae Art customer. I can't tell you how much we value your support!
Let me explain how this works. We want to make sure you are always getting the highest quality merchandise and that the integrity of the art is kept. It is easier today than ever before to get duped because of the internet and various other ecommerce sites such as Etsy, Ebay, etc.
What we produce here at Sansae Art and Sansae Art Gifts —our artwork—is our "product". Our livelihood and the products you enjoy depend on people respecting our copyrights and trademarks. Artists, writers, people and companies with great ideas all pay to have their work copyrighted and/or trademarked so that they can insure that, not only will they be compensated for all their hard work, but so that their unsuspecting customers will be protected from spending their hard-earned cash on poor quality imitation merchandise.
Think of it this way—say you painted a beautiful oil painting for a friend's birthday. What if that friend (well, supposed friend) took that painting, had it copied, and put it on everything from fabric to pillows, lamps, bedding, etc., and made a fortune off of it, without giving you a dime of his profit. You wouldn't be happy, would you? Neither are we when it happens to us. Fortunately, it's against the law.
Our customers are one of our best resources for discovery of unscrupulous people fraudulently using Saeed Hojjati's artwork and our trademarks.
Please let us know if you find goods or services that are not authorized products. We want both our brand and our customer's pocketbooks protected against poor quality merchandise. Some of the products showcased on eBay, Etsy, or similar sites are unauthorized sellers of unlicensed products, and we ask that you refrain from purchasing from such vendors.
We thank you in advance for your help. If you come across something suspicious you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the title "Unathorized Seller" in the subject line.
