Digital Direct is a computer-controlled printing technique which disperses color onto each product. Digital Direct is Spreadshop’s go-to printing technique, as it’s available for all file formats and outputs beautiful printing results.
Thermo Sublimation is the printing technique used on accessories such as mugs and phone cases. It’s printed on a transfer foil, then applied to the product using thermal evaporation.
Laser transfer is the printing technique we use on accessories like bags and caps. Laser transfer designs are also printed on a transfer foil but applied to the product by applying heat.
FLEX printing is another technique using both foil and heat application. There’s a maximum of three colors that can be used with FLEX and your design file must be vector for top-notch printing results.

“Spreadshop's printing options are way better than the alternatives. I've had some sample shirts made for other print-on-demand companies and I thought the quality was terrible. The margins are also better with Spreadshop, which is naturally important if you want to make a living doing this.”
“I've been a fan of Spreadshop since leaving Teespring. Everything works smoothly, and the designer tool is very user-friendly. Made a lot of sales without maintaining a website and orders on a daily base.”
