You’ve undoubtedly heard about the disaster that Mother Nature has brought upon the city of Houston, Texas over the past week. The nation’s fourth-largest city was devastated by high winds, relentless rainfall, and flooding brought on by Hurricane Harvey. Millions were forced from their homes and cars in mass exodus, the city’s residents taking refuge in the makeshift shelters of converted libraries, stadiums and warehouses.
We recently received a lot of Partner feedback regarding a design price cap implemented in Spreadshirt’s Create Tool. We have listened to your feedback, and have come up with a different solution that we believe will work for all involved: We have decided to remove the design price cap from the Spreadshirt Create Tool at the end of June.

This will impact the search algorithm of the Create Tool. In future, only designs priced below a certain limit will be shown in the Create Tool. The design price you set will also affect the ranking.

While working on strategic solutions for the company, the owner told him that printing individual items wasn’t worth the effort and was just too expensive. So Lukasz set out to optimize the process and told the company, “You have to do something on the Internet!”
