Watermarks for Marketplace Designs

Watermarks for Marketplace Designs

Many Marketplace Designers have been asking us to protect their designs with watermarks, and that’s why we’re now introducing watermarks to level up the protection. We’re aware of the fact that it’s a tough call to prevent skillful thieves from stealing, but the introduction of watermarks is bound to make your designs safer. In this article, you’ll find out how this is going to be facilitated.

It’s never nice when someone steals your property, and it’s even more unpleasant when other people make money off your work. The new watermark image protection will improve the protection of your designs. From now on, images showing your designs displayed at a resolution of 350 pixels or more will bear a watermark. These watermarks will automatically be applied to images showing your designs on the Marketplace – all other images in your SpreadShop and the lower-resolution images in Spreadshirt’s Create Tool will not be affected.

Please remember that watermarks won’t have a negative effect on your customers’ shopping experience: they will only be visible in the actual design view. Product images will not bear a watermark.

Hello, I have a question. If we are no longer able to put our name and copyright mark on all new submissions to the marketplace.
Then how do we protect ourselves from having Spreadshirt itself using our design, or not paying commissions to us.
I understand the watermark for Spreadshirt, but how are we the original owners of that design protected from Spreadshirt claiming the design for themselves?
I am not saying that you would do this, but it is a valid question

Thank you

Why is the watermark limited to 350 dpi?

Lena,

I found it. I didn’t see it while clicking on any designs, however, I found the watermarked image buried in the source code. 🙂

Thanks!

When will the watermarks be added? I’m not seeing the watermark on any of my designs in the marketplace.
