    my girlfriend wants to try and buy blank baby clothes and put home made designs on them and resell them. Does anyone know the legality of say, buying a gerber shirt and printing on it and reselling it? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Once you pay for the product it becomes your property. As long as the changes don't affect their trademarks, they can't touch you.

    Leave the original tag in the garment and all you're doing is re-selling a "personally altered" item.
