Your Holiday shoppers will want to know that their gifts will arrive in time to be wrapped and waiting under the tree or tucked into stockings. Make sure your customers place their orders by the 2021 Holiday order deadlines to ensure delivery in time. If Santa can do it with just a few reindeer and a pinch of magic, then so can you!
Be sure to clearly communicate the deadlines to your customers so they know what to expect. Remind them on social media, too.
Here are the order deadlines for this season.
Europe Order Deadlines 2021
United States, Canada & Oceania Order Deadlines 2021
US – Military APO / FPO
*subject to change
We’re doing everything we can to make sure your customers receive their orders by the Holidays. However, order deadlines can change last minute because of longer production times or carrier delays. If this happens, we’ll update the order deadlines and be sure to let you know.

Meet SPOD, a Spread Group brand that allows access to our network of fulfillment facilities by integrating with external shop systems.
What is SPOD?
SPOD stands for “Spreadshirt Print on Demand.” Like Spreadshop, SPOD is a Spread Group brand. Using the SPOD, you can sell your own customized products on Shopify, WooCommerce and other e-commerce platforms and benefit from the usual service and the print-on-demand expertise of Spreadshirt for your online store.
With SPOD, you as a merchant have full control over your prices, returns and communication with your customers. As soon as someone orders something from you, SPOD takes over your order fulfillment and shipping. When it comes to relating to your customers, you, your store and your brand are in the spotlight. And if you need help, SPOD support will be there to back you up.
As a SPOD merchant, you can sell your products not only in your own store, but also on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, as well as on digital marketplaces like Etsy, Amazon, eBay and Idealo. You can relax and focus on your online business while SPOD takes care of the fulfillment for you, including production and shipping.

SPOD vs. Spreadshop
When you run your own shop with Spreadshop, you design and market your products yourself. We take care of everything else: Customer service, shipping and returns, support, store templates and production. Spreadshop is always free for you.
SPOD merchants run their store on Shopify and are responsible for their own customers and sales channels. For example, they set the shipping method and cost, choose printing methods and much more. There are no discount promotions for SPOD merchants like there are for Spreadshop. For every order that comes through your Shopify store, merchants pay a fee to SPOD and Shopify.
Despite the differences between SPOD and Spreadshop, there are also some similarities. On both platforms you set your own customer prices and can unlock our Design Tool for your customers. Furthermore, you are always responsible for the success of your store, regardless of whether you sell through Spreadshop or SPOD. Your mission is to bring traffic to your store with targeted marketing or promotions.
How SPOD can help you build your own business
Here are some of the advantages of using SPOD to build your brand:
You have full control over your retail prices and shipping costs (you can also offer free shipping).
You control your marketing, customer service and more.
You have free access to your customer data.
You can sell print-on-demand products exclusively or offer other products in addition to your SPOD products in your Shopify store – e.g. a coffee shop that also sells specialty coffees, barista classes or accessories.
SPOD Europe vs. SPOD United States
Depending on where you want to sell your products, you can select Europe or the USA as production location in the SPOD app. If most of your customers live in the USA, set up the SPOD app for North America. Not only will we be able to deliver to them faster and in a shorter, more environmentally-friendly way, but we’ll also be able to offer a range of products tailored specifically to your region. If you want to sell in both regions, simply create two accounts and sell in Europe and the USA (including Canada and Australia) at the same time.
Your business, your way!
SPOD is the most flexible way for you to run an online store selling print-on-demand products. Simply integrate the SPOD app into your Shopify store or other e-commerce platforms. For a full list of marketplaces and shop systems that integrate with SPOD, see here. Design your own products and take the relationship you build with your customers into your own hands.
Whether SPOD or Spreadshop is the better print-on-demand provider for you depends on your goals. You can also sell through SPOD and Spreadshop at the same time or use them to complement one another.

Metadata plays a crucial role in your sales success. After all, you can only sell your designs if people can find them. With the right metadata, you can ensure that your designs are searchable on Google and, of course, within your Shop. To make effective metadata as easy as possible for you, we’ve optimized metadata page to better support you.
Optimized page structure
The most obvious optimization we’ve made is to the user interface of the metadata page itself. It’s now cleaner and helps you fill in the metadata fields as well as possible, featuring new and more advanced explanations.
If you need a refresher on why metadata is so important for your sales success, check out this blog post. Our top tip: metadata should be as unique and as specific as possible. To describe your designs precisely, you may need to look at them again in more detail. Now you can do that directly on the metadata page. Simply hover your mouse over the design and use the magnifying glass to zoom in on it. The moon icon next to the magnifying glass will allow you to change the design background from dark to light. Contrast is important here: if you have a light design, it will look best on a dark background and vice versa.
New translation feature for international sales
If your designs are suitable for international target groups, you can now manage your metadata translations even easier thanks to our new translation feature. Simply activate the option “Automatically translate all languages” and we will translate all metadata for you automatically – free of charge and without any extra effort from you.
If you speak a certain language particularly well, you can adapt the metadata in this language yourself. Just choose the language and correct the translations manually.
Please note: For new designs, it can sometimes take several days until the automatic translation is complete in all languages. Also, you should only adjust the automatic translations if you have a good command of the target language. This is because, as already mentioned, designs will only be found and purchased if the metadata really fits to the design.
From now on, your Shop will be accessible on the new Shop domain. This will help you sell your products faster and easier moving forward.
If you sell your Shop products on external platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or Google, your new Shop domain is about to simplify that process. If you haven’t started selling on these platforms, then this is your sign to start! Thanks to your new domain, it’s never been easier to verify your Shop for your social media platforms, sell your products to your target groups, or advertise your Product Feed.
Forget the old domain
You should only use your new Shop domain from now on – no matter where you’re sharing it.
This applies especially to your social networks, your own website or your Shop’s newsletters. To find out more about why your Shop has moved to a new domain, check out this blog post.
