The biggest seller is a t-shirt with a fan generated illustration called In Style. Fans from their various channels can also benefit from a free shipping promotion launching today for one week.

Stuggy says “It is mental that we have a shop. But have had a phenomenal start. The helpful folk at Spreadshirt have made it easy for us to create cool merchandise and share it via our social networks with our fans. They helped us with the set-up and we can quickly add new merchandise and fan-based designs. And because it’s print-on-demand we don’t have to invest in stock. We get to do what we do best playing around with ideas. All the time-consuming side of things such as production, fulfillment and financials are done by Spreadshirt, and then we get paid once a month!”

The Spreadshirt shop now icon on the Stuggy & Ashton social network pages links through to a branded shop, where loyal fans can choose to buy from a range of designs giving the UK’s social media stars a global audience for their merchandise.

Philip Rooke, CEO of Spreadshirt, states “The UK has some of our most savvy social media sellers. They know that their fans want a bit of customisation, right size or colour, and that they can have an input in the designs put up for sale too. Our technology means they can put up a design for an hour maybe or only make a small number available. Because it’s print-on-demand, these social commerce entrepreneurs can afford to keep adding and changing designs, seeing what gets ordered and what doesn’t. It gives them lots of information about their fans and encourages them to come back and see what’s recently been posted.”
