Back in July, we introduced watermarks for your Marketplace designs to help protect them from unlawful use, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Protecting your intellectual property from those who would use it for their own personal gain is an important step to take in running a successful business. At the beginning of December, we’ll be making some slight changes to the watermark on your Marketplace list page design images. Please read on to find out more.
Due to a slight page redesign, a resolution change will be made to the watermark on your Marketplace list page design images. From December 5th forward, the SPREADSHIRT watermark will be displayed at a resolution of 400px instead of the original 350px.
Why the size change?
Our Marketplace list pages have undergone a slight redesign: designs are now displayed across three columns instead of four, and the size of the design images has increased.
With the design image size increase, we found that a 350px watermark was often mistaken as part of the design itself. Increasing the watermark resolution from 350px to 400px will allow it to stand out as a protective element it is meant to be as opposed to an actual part of your designs.
We are serious about helping you protect your work, and hope that this redesign serves to not only show your design images in a larger and more appealing format, but to also keep your work protected from design thieves.
If you have any questions about the detail page or watermark size increase, leave us a comment below. We’d love to hear from you!
