First, and before we go any further, let’s take a moment to familiarize everyone with solar flares. Being at a copy writer for a create, buy and sell your own clothing and accessories company, I have no insight for you as to what this phenomenon as all about, so I figure it best to leave it to the pros:
In an effort to rule the world, Spreadshirt has recently set its virtual foot in two hemispheres, adding localized domains for both Switzerland (www.spreadshirt.ch) and Australia (www.spreadshirt.com.au). T-shirts are universal, versatile and never go out of style. That’s how we want to be: we want people all over the world to know the joys of creating their own personalized apparel and accessories, the simplicity and potential of opening their own shops and selling their designs and products, the delight in finding designs in our Marketplace that are exactly what they were looking for. Country by country, city by city, town by town, Spreadshirt wants to bring this feeling to you. continue reading ‘Expanding Our Reach’
Recently Spreadshirt had a chance to sit down and chat with one of our more successful partners, Leslie, Owner/Operator of Teacher T-Shirts (www.teachertshirts.spreadshirt.com).
Leslie is a full-time teacher and mother who saw a market opportunity for school/teacher-themed t-shirt designs with a cool “subway art” look to them. Leslie’s shop, Teacher T-Shirts, offers cool designs for all grades and special school days, spirit wear, jeans days and everything in between. According to Leslie, her designs “are totally functional for teachers while still being stylish for the classroom.”
Teacher T-Shirts has been hosted on spreadshirt.com since June 2012 and continues to be one of our more popular and successful shops. Leslie is a testament to the fact that even with two of life’s most stressful jobs as a full-time teacher and mother, she can still find the time to run a successful shop and make herself some extra money on the side, both for herself and for the charity Mercy Ministries to whom she donates on an annual basis. continue reading ‘An Interview with Spreadshirt Partner “Teacher T-Shirts”’
Skulls: they’re not just for goths, poisonous materials and Halloween anymore. In fact, skull designs have become EXTREMELY popular in all circles of fashion. Let’s see here… I take public transportation to work everyday. In the past week or so I’ve seen skull rings and earrings, skull tights, a skull bandana, a guy with seersucker, skull-embroidered shorts, a young lady with a skull hair clip and one very trendy co-ed with a DIY tank top on that had a skull design cut out of the back (wait, did she get that idea from our blog article?). Needless to say, skull designs and accessories are bringing the heat.
Check out these and other sick skull designs in our Marketplace. Skull designs are some of our best selling, so if you think you’ve got a cool skull idea up in YOUR skull, open your own shop for free today and put it up for sale. You never know; it may just go viral and you could be raking in the dough– no bones about it! (see what I did there?)
Bring us your gory and dripping with fright. Designs so scary we won’t sleep at night. We like monsters and creatures and witches and ghouls. Show us your dark side, break all the rules. Enter this contest and win a cool prize. Now all of you werewolves and zombies must RISE!
Music to the ears of men around the country and nails on a chalkboard to the ears of their female counterparts: Fantasy Football season is BACK! (yes, ladies, I know a number of you out there are knee-deep in fantasy too, so kindly disregard the previous comment– and give me a call! ).
Fantasy Football means a few things, and here they are in no particular order:
- Sundays are no longer your own. They belong to the commentators and ESPN analysts whose word has become scripture since you signed up for your league(s). Anything to get an edge. Who’s in, who’s out, whose wife just had a baby and won’t be playing this week, who has the ever-dreaded “turf toe”? You can answer all of these questions.
- You have become a veritable sous chef of appetizers. Nachos grandes, pigs in blankets, queso, salsa, 7-layer dip, buffalo this, sweet and sour that… whatever it is, you can make it. Is it good? Eh…. who cares?!
- What used to be a passive affinity for the game had turned into an unbridled love affair. You will put your work aside to pick up someone on the waiver wire. You will threaten physical harm on opposing team owners when they take your pick in the draft. This is war, not a game. Business, not pleasure. Fantasy Football is not for the faint of heart.
In order to be truly prepared for your 16 hours on the couch every Sunday; in order to be fully ready to go for the flipping of the channels, the clicking of the mouse, the yelling and screaming, you need only one thing: a fantasy football t-shirt from Spreadshirt!
As we prepare to change into another season, it’s also time to change up our assortment and add in some highly requested pieces. There’s a little something for everyone in this month’s launch and here’s the low down on what we have added.
- We switched brands of our Women’s Leggings from Bella to American Apparel so we could offer you some additional colors including; White, Heather Gray, Red, Turquoise and soon to be launched Purple.
- The addition of a new women’s t-shirt style, The Women’s Deep V-Neck Marble T-Shirt in colors; White Marble, Red Marble, Black Marble, Navy Marble and Blue Marble. Can be dressed up or dressed down, slightly sheer and super comfortable, makes for a great summer to fall transition piece.
-Some new fitness gear by American Apparel just for the ladies. A Women’s Sports Bra and Women’s Capri Length Fitness Pants both available in black, asphalt and dark pink. Buy them together to create the perfect workout outfit or own their own as the Nylon/Elastine fabric blend breathes easily and provides support during the most rigorous of workouts.
-And last but certainly not the least, for the gentlemen out there, two new additions. We will be adding the color purple to our Men’s Basic T-Shirt by Gildan and we have added a new Men’s Baseball T-Shirt style. This style is available in the core colors of White/Black, White/Navy, White/Red and also Heather Gray/Black and Black/White in sizes S-2X. It’s lightweight, and perfect for the autumn weather with 3/4 sleeves in the traditional raglan styling.
Check them out and as always let us know what you think and what you would like to see us add!
Whether you’re a sibling or an only child, a mother or father, son or daughter, grandfather or grandmother, you know as well as we do that all generations play a huge role in families. So why not get t-shirts for each generation? T-shirts have always been in style and aren’t going out of style any time soon, and last time I checked, you can’t spell ‘generation’ without a ‘t’.

Any t-shirt, any brand, any style, 15% off. No matter what generation you’re from, we can assure you we have a t-shirt for you. continue reading ‘Generation-T: 15% Off All T-Shirts Starts Today!’
Quick… what do you think of when you hear the word ‘Oktoberfest’? Yup, I knew it: beer. I would bet that for 99% of you out there, ‘beer’ was the first thing that came to your mind. And yes, of course there is plenty of beer being consumed at Oktoberfest festivals, but that’s not all there is. Here’s a quick little rundown of Oktoberfest—what it is, where it is and how it is.
I considered writing this blog post in a camouflage font, but then nobody would have been able to see it!
But in all seriousness, camouflage t-shirts are making a BIG TIME comeback. Nope, they’re not just for paintballers anymore. Camo gear of all colors and styles is making a big push forward in the world of fashion. And we’re not just talking the new-age digital camo that today’s soldiers wear (and thank you for your service, btw), we’re talking old-school greens and browns, new-school pinks and blues and even what’s being called “urban” camo in blacks and grays. I’m telling you! This is the real deal!
Spreadshirt’s got a bunch of different camo designs and 4 different camo styles that are sure to make all of your camo dreams come true. Check ‘em out today– and contrary to the actual use of camouflage, these shirts will really get you seen!
