The COVID pandemic is turning life upside down – and Spreadshirt is not immune to it. Find out about our temporary changes.
The health and safety of our employees, the designer community and our suppliers is a top priority at Spreadshirt. In order for everyone – in the office, in production and in the supply chain – to keep an appropriate distance from each other, we have to temporarily cut back or pause a few of our normal processes.
Design Contest on hold
From April 1st, 2020, we will not be holding a monthly design contest for the time being. We’ll have our exciting competitions up and running again as soon as we can.
The lucky winners of the last contest have already been chosen. You can admire our three wining Cool Critters of 2020 here.
You will be informed about the next contest on our contest page and in our designer newsletter. Until then, we would like to encourage you to take advantage of your extra time at home to your creative work.
No instant publishing (for now)
Instant publishing was introduced in 2017 and we’ve had to temporarily disable it. For now, it might take a bit longer for your new designs to go live on the Marketplace and be ready to buy.
Temporary upload limit: 5 designs per day
We also have to temporarily reduce our upload limit. For the time being, the limit is 5 new designs per day. If you run your own Spreadshop in addition to your Showroom, please note that the upload limit applies to both points of sales.
Our tip: Concentrate on marketing your best designs and bestsellers for now.
Use the peace and quiet
We very much hope that everyone can soon return to everyday life and normality. Until then, we will keep you up to date on current developments in this blog article.
As we continue to face this crisis together, we wish you and yours good health. And we even wish you and all our designers a little bit of boredom while you’re cooped up at home— because boredom stimulates creativity!
