Making merch is easier than you think thanks to Spreadshop. Our platform is FREE and easy to use. You can start creating and selling merch in seconds (literally)!
We’re a print on-demand service, which means we print merch when there’s a demand for it, or when orders are placed. This means you don’t have to deal with shipping orders or storing boxes of merch that might not even sell. And we have hundreds of products to choose from.
Our platform is fully customizable and designed to help you grow your brand. Sharing to socials and connecting with your customers is integrated into your shop. Read on to see how easy it is to make merch with Spreadshop!
Sell in Seconds
Don’t worry, you don’t have to fill out a bunch of forms to open your shop. All you need is a shop name, email, and password. You can change your shop name at any time if your brand or aesthetic changes. Have more than one creative endeavor? You can open up to 10 shops with a single account. And that’s just one of our many unique features.
Link your Paypal account or opt for direct deposit to access money made from merch sales. We set a base price for our products, but you make whatever you set beyond that. This is handled in the backend of your shop, the storefront view is completely up to you.
Upload Designs Today
There’s no holding period, start uploading your designs on day one! Your designs can be in different files – JPG, PNG – and we provide recommended dimensions. The placement of designs is up to you. Place certain designs on the back of hoodies, or make them smaller for t-shirts.
If you’re having trouble coming up with designs, there are plenty of graphic design tools out there (FREE or pay-to-play). Canva is one of our favorites. They have plenty of templates and graphic elements to choose from. It’s also a great place to get inspiration. You can even set your brand colors.
We’ve Got Plenty of Products
At Spreadshop, we don’t have a shortage when it comes to product options. Think bigger than your basic tee, though we do appreciate a good graphic t-shirt. Sell hoodies, hats, buttons, even fanny packs! They’re back in style, you know.
Even though we have a lot of products to choose from, that doesn’t mean you need to have all of them in your shop. You can toggle products on or off as you please. This is ideal for different seasons. In the summer, consider putting the hoodies on the back burner and tees and water bottles up front.
Production is On Us
Fulfilling orders and shipping them can be a headache, especially when you’re doing it from your bedroom. We have warehouses across the globe that will handle all of that for you. When an order in your shop is placed, one of our warehouses will be notified and start fulfilling it for you. That’s where print on-demand comes in handy!
The Holidays are a particularly busy time for us, but we’re equipped to handle the hectic, seasonal bustle. We also offer promos every month to bring attention to your merch and boost sales. You just have to do a good job of promoting.
Connecting with followers on socials is crucial to creating a community around your merch, especially if you have a particular niche. You can toggle buttons on in your shop for different socials – Instagram, Twitter, Twitch, etc. – that hold direct links. This makes it easy for customers to find you on all platforms.
You should also have the link to your Spreadshop in all your profiles. Link in bio tools like Linktree are great for housing multiple links in a clean format.
