We at Spreadshirt have a great responsibility to our customers and our staff. It is important for us to be aware of actions and their consequences at our headquarters in Leipzig and anywhere else in the world that we communicate to our audience.
Our decisions are always transparent and open to scrutiny: Employees, customers and anyone interested in our conduct are invited to take part. The German word for responsibility is “verantwortung”, so please refer any issues related to firstname.lastname@example.org
Sustainability is close to our heart. We produce environmentally-friendly T-shirts in order to reduce waste and we recycle whenever possible. An important step here was the introduction of our own collection. This makes us proud and gives us the opportunity to exert an influence on the origin and production of the T-shirts we are printing on.
Spreadshirt is based on fairness and honesty. We ensure this by adhering to our Code of Practice. We make sure that our suppliers abide by our code or adhere to similar principles. We strive to conduct fair and legitimate relationships with all of our business partners. When choosing suppliers and merchants, personal relationships or gaining an advantage of some sort is never a decisive factor. All that counts is quality, experience and integrity.
Flat hierarchies, room for creativity and individual influence, as well as an inspiring and relaxed atmosphere make the work environment at Spreadshirt a special one. Our Feel Good Manager, Stephanie, makes sure that working at Spreadshirt is all fun and games. Next to providing a stimulating atmosphere at work, she organizes foosball and table-tennis tournaments, provides free fruit for everyone and initiates social activities. Just like the rest of the personnel department, she always has an open ear for personal requests and questions when it comes to life in Leipzig and work at Spreadshirt.
T-shirts are a means of transport - they transport opinion, creativity, art and design. They embody space to display one’s personality. Just like with other things in democracy, there are natural limits to our freedom of expression. We do not print things that are bound to offend people, e.g. pornographic material and content designed to insult and discriminate against genders or religious and ethnic groups. We won’t print anything that’s not right and fair. Above all, a code of ethics applies. This implies that we do not condone any designs displaying hate and contempt for others. Things of this nature have no place on our tees.
We are friends of charitable endeavors, and we donate to acknowledged charitable organizations. This is how we can harness the potential we have as a continuously growing company to support values and things close to our heart. And we never condition our donations on purchases made with our company. We do, however, grant concessionary terms to recognized organizations using print-on-demand apparel to point to social injustices.
