Reopening of both US Production Facilities

On March 24th 2020, Spreadshirt is reopening both U.S. production facilities. After legal clarification by the Nevada and Pennsylvania governments, we are now able to reopen our facilities by enacting strict health and safety guidelines.

For Spreadshirt, the safety and health of our employees is paramount. By keeping our production employees at a distance of 6 feet from one another, cleaning surfaces at the beginning and end of shifts, and promoting hand washing, we are able to keep our employees safe and resume our production of custom-printed products for our customers. Here is the full list of safety guidelines from the CDC that we will follow. Read more

“Life is about making a difference” – Successful start of Frankfurter Buchmesse’s CREATE YOUR REVOLUTION campaign

CREATE YOUR REVOLUTION Talks inspires the audience with stories of revolution, activism and positive change

While the UK is planning its withdrawal from the European Union, Germany is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The 71st Frankfurter Buchmesse (16-20 October 2019) is taking place against the background of global political and social upheavals worldwide. What role does culture play in dynamic times like these? And why is culture more important than ever, given the current situation of global warming and unstable world politics? These are the core topics of CREATE YOUR REVOLUTION (CYR), the campaign by Frankfurter Buchmesse in cooperation with the United Nations (UN), ARTE, the German Publishers & Booksellers Association, THE ARTS+/B3 and Spreadshop. These topics were also the focus of the CYR Talks taking place at Frankfurter Buchmesse on October 16th.

Spreadshirt CEO Philip Roooke at the Create Your Revolution Talks

Spreadshirt CEO Philip Rooke talked about empowering activists to express themselves with Spreadshop.

“The CREATE YOUR REVOLUTION Talks was a fantastic evening with extraordinary talks from around the world”, is John Kampfner’s summary. The former Chief Executive of the Creative Industries Federation and TV-Journalist Nazan Gökdemir moderated the event which celebrated freedom of expression, creative change and a better world. During the three-hour event, cultural activists from all over the world inspired the audience with personal stories and ideas for the future of democracy and culture. Phyllis Omido, Environmental activist and Founder of The Center for Justice, Governance, and Environmental Action, called on the audience for worldwide support for one another: “We share a planet and whatever happens in Africa has an impact in Europe – let’s support each other.” But the evening not solely presented outstanding fighters for worldwide change passionately discussing their ideas, the event also included expressive performances. Corey Scott-Gilbert showed an extract of Sasha Waltz’ dance performance “Creature”.

A summary of the highlights of the event will be available from 23 October in the ARTE Mediathek (arte.tv/buchmesse). Read more
