Looking for increased visibility and better sales? Well, you’re going to like this. We recently updated your showroom and Marketplace, making it easier for customers to find your designs and products. This doesn’t only make life easier for the customers; it will help guide these potential buyers directly to your offerings.
The summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean selling is! Rather, there are notable design occasions that are rapidly approaching. Familiarise yourself with these dates, come up with applicable designs, and watch as the sales roll in!
Summer, summer, summertime. Time to sit back and design…Okay, those weren’t the exact lyrics to DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince’s song, but the revised version helps to emphasize our point. Read more
For May’s Design Contest, we asked you to take a walk through the woods and come up with nature-themed designs. Well, many of you proved that designing is truly “second nature,” as we received a number of earthly creations.

You could soon be seeing green… and we’re talking both nature and money (€500, to be exact). If designing is second nature to you, you’ll want to participate in our next Design Contest, “Nature.” Create an earthly, woodsy design, upload it by May 16th, and you could win €500!

Philipp Rietz is the designer of the month, and he’s been ever-present for almost a decade. He’s been quite the active contributor under the name of BadBugs for 8 years already while aspiring to become one of Spreadshirt’s most successful designers. Having already featured him in 2013, we’re now about to find out what makes him such a distinguished individual besides his creativity. Read more
Our recent Marketplace changes have officially been released. After explaining these impending changes earlier this year, we’d like to continue to keep you informed. Most of our updates happen in the background and are not very noticeable. However, the latest updates are more noteworthy, so you might recognize some of the revisions. Continue reading to see what’s changed…
Change in URL Structure
We’re always looking for new ways to boost your sales, so we’ve made it easier for customers to find your work on Google and other search engines. Specifically, we improved the SEO (search engine optimization) of our URLs. We altered the links to include not only the design names, but also the product names. If you’ve linked your Marketplace products elsewhere, there’s no need to worry. A redirect is in place, so previous external links are not broken.
More Relevant Search Results
We want potential customers to easily find their ideal design, and we’re also looking to make our search results more relevant. Therefore, we adapted the way our personal search engine works. Now, when you use our search bar, you’ll recognize some changes in the results pages. Moreover, when you previously searched for a term, you’d see all the products listed on the left side of the page, even if there weren’t any results for these specific categories. Now, you’ll only see the relevant product offerings. This feature will eventually be available in your Showroom.
Finally, many of you have commented about the pagination on the Marketplace. In our continued effort to help boost conversion and sales, we have decided to increase the number of pages you’ll see on any list page and in your Showroom. A limitation of results is still in place, but it isn’t as strict as it once was.
