Get Fit with Spreadshirt

There are a host of motivating slogans that you can print on a t-shirt: “Pain is Temporary, Pride is Forever”, “No Pain, No Gain” and “Sweat is Just Fat Crying”, to name a few. You can tell that “pain” is a theme here, and since nothing in life comes for free, we want to give you the extra incentive to walk through the shadow of the valley of pain, and finally master the most rewarding character-building experience of them all: exercise! Check out our blog and learn how to quiet the demons of complacency, and then turn into the healthy beast you’re meant to be.

Football is an all-consuming, gigantic, undeniable part of most of our lives between April and February, and its biggest event will hit television screens across the world on February 1st. Whether you’re a fan or not, you will be touched by the event in some way shape or form: if you’re in it for the multi-million dollar commercials, you have a big bet on one of the teams, or you just like the halftime show, it’s important to know that the size and scope of this event can mean BIG money for your shop if you play your cards right. Let’s take a moment to explore Fantag, one of our more popular shops, and see how they capitalize on the American football craze.

Those winter pounds are best shed by getting active. Since we’re looking for a little motivation ourselves, we thought we’d ask the experts – football players. They may look big, but underneath all that equipment is a strong and finely-tuned fitness machine. They’ll certainly have some tips on how to get motivated!

New Year’s Resolution: How Long Can You Last?

New Year’s Resolution: How Long Can You Last?

New Years Resolution

New Year’s resolutions aren’t for the faint of heart. They’re serious, serious commitments you resolve to live up to, no matter the cost, for 15 minutes or so. Here are a few resolutions you just may want to commit to for a little longer than that:

Get in Shape

Ha ha, yeah, we know, “round is a shape”… We’ve all heard that one once or twice. But seriously though, it’s probably time to get yourself to the gym. Don’t want to commit to the contract at the local sweat shop? Some push-ups, sit-ups and cardio in your living room are a good place to start.

Average drop-out rate for the “Get in Shape” resolution: 3 weeks

No More Baggage

We all carry around a ton of stuff. I’m not talking like, “that guy has a lot of baggage”, I’m talking cell phones, laptops, tablets, your lunch, your wallet or purse, etc. Let’s resolve to consolidate. Putting everything in one bag is a great way to keep your hands free for more important stuff (like coffee).

Average drop-out rate for “No More Baggage” resolution: 2.5 months

New Years Resolution

Be Seen Offline

Each one of us is a victim to the screen. Whether it’s your TV, your phone, your tablet or your laptop, we all spend a little too much time face-to-screen instead of face-to-face. Let’s resolve to be seen offline for a bit. Put down our devices a few times a day to sit and chat with a friend (NOT on Skype, you guys!).

Average drop-out time for “Be Seen Offline” resolution: 8 minutes

Hop on the Wagon

Once the holiday season has come and gone, it’s usually a popular resolution to dry out the ol’ liver. After all the eggnog, the warm spiced wine and “Christmas cheer”, it’s a good idea. Couple this with getting in shape and you’re well on your way to a healthy 2015!

Average drop-out time for “Hop on the Wagon” resolution: Is it 5:00 yet?

What was your New Year’s resolution this year? How long do you plan to keep it going and how long do you think you’ll really last? Leave us a comment or email our bloggers at blog@spreadshirt. Happy New Year, everyone!

Rock n' Roll

Rock n’ Roll

blog_elvis_US

Rock ‘n‘ Roll isn’t just a music trend from the 1950s and 60s; the term itself has become a way of life. Some may say “Elvis was just a guy with a quiff, shaking his hips and wearing a leather jacket”, but you need only watch a single clip of any Elvis Presley song to understand why he was called The King. His iconic voice and smart looks have never lost their appeal. To celebrate what would have been Elvis’ 80th birthday on January 8th, Spreadshirt presents rocking designs that would make The King proud.

We have all worked very, very hard this year and now it’s time to get paid! It’s important to note, though, that Spreadshirt has changed our Terms of Use to adhere to current IRS requirements. In previous years, we were able to make our commission payouts with only generalized Partner information provided, but due to new regulations and requirements, some more concise Partner information will be required in order to receive your commission payments. Please continue reading for what will be required and where to find it.

The Wizardry of IT – Spreadshirt’s Innovation & Hacking Day

Hacking Day Spreadshirt

It’s just a regular Wednesday in December everywhere else, but a special day here at Spreadshirt. Our IT crowd is all smiles today as we’ve gracefully relieved them from their usual tasks. We can see small groups of guys in aged-to-perfection T-shirts and worn out tennis shoes discussing (in hushed voices) new and ground-breaking projects with modest working title such as “world domination”. Hackers at Spreadshirt? Sabotage? Scandals? Not really; just a common scenario with our digital super brains. Here’s what they shared with us on Spreadshirt’s 7th Annual Innovation & Hacking Day.

The Blog in Review: 2014 Rewind

blog recap spreadshirt 2014

It’s been a big year for the Spreadshirt blog. We’ve had more visitors than ever before, we learned a lot about being crafty, we’ve laughed together with Friday Funny after Friday Funny and we’ve had a bunch of insightful interviews with some of our more popular Shop Partners.
Here’s a quick rewind of this year’s top 3 blog articles. We’d love to hear what you’d like to see happening on our blog in 2015. As always, your comments and feedback are appreciated. Leave your comment right in the post or write to us at blog@spreadshirt.com.

Shine Bright like a Diamond

In this post, we took a dive into the wonderful world of our glitter, glamour and glow-in-the-dark priting techniques. They are such a great way to turn a plain design or text into something that will really catch the eye of a passerby (or maybe even the cute girl or guy at the club!).

The Marketplace Most Wanted

Perhaps the most unique thing about Spreadshirt is that you can own and operate your very own free clothing and accessory shop! Seriously! Free! The Marketplace’s Most Wanted was a helpful article to let Shop Partners know what kinds of designs were selling best in our Marketplace to help them make more money. We do this a few times a year, so be on the look out!

Scarves: They’re Not Just for Keeping Your Neck Warm

Upcycling became a big trend in fashion this year. Upcycling is taking something you might otherwise throw away and utilizing them in a smart, crafty way for another function. Check out this hilarious article of different ways to upcycle your country scarves after months of World Cup rooting.

Thank you to all of our blog readers, contributors and those of you who comment. We love providing you with fun and practical articles and look forward to an even better 2015. And stay tuned… we just may have some surprises in store for you!
