Your designs are about to go international! Moving forward, uploading your designs to Spreadshirt will mean automatic translation and publication to multiple international platforms, giving them the exposure and sales potential they’ve always deserved.
International publishing has been long-requested by Spreadshirt Marketplace designers, and is now a reality. Here are the details:
- Designs published on any of the North American/Oceanic (Australia) platforms will be translated and published in the United States, Canada (for both the English and French Canadian platforms) and Australia.
- Designs published on any of the European platforms will be translated and published in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Netherlands, Ireland, Poland, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and the UK.
- Designs you publish will be examined for international suitability* by Spreadshirt, then made available for sale in all countries of your selling region.
- The keywords (tags) you choose to describe your design will automatically be translated into the respective languages of the other platforms. For example, an Italian visitor on spreadshirt.it searching for a horse design in Italian (“cavallo”) will now be able to find a design that was uploaded to the Irish platform and tagged with the English word “horse”.
International publishing comes with the promise for a wider range of exposure and a greater possibility for more sales. Welcome to international ecommerce! The best part is, you don’t have to do anything extra to enjoy this benefit. All designs uploaded to the new Partner Area will automatically be published internationally.

* “international suitability” refers to universal understandability of designs. Designs that are specific to a particular region, i.e. designs that include phrases in a native language, are representative of a local tradition, etc. will not be considered internationally sustainable and will not be published internationally.
