Spreadshirt is an online store/service similar to CafePress and Zazzle. With Spreadshirt you can create your own T-shirt by designing it online with their easy to use online T-shirt designer. After designing your T-shirt you can order it online and Spreadshirt will ship the t-shirt with your custom design on it.
Okay, but we are looking at the business aspect here. To be precise, a store just like the ones they offer at CafePress or at Zazzle. Can I have such a store a Spreadshirt? The answer is a big Yes. You can have your own store at Spreadshirt.
Opening a Spreadshirt shirt shop doesn’t cost you money. It’s free and just like in the case of CafePress and Zazzle, Spreadshirt takes away the pain off your online business by handling most of the more difficult tasks like payment processing, shipping etc.
A Spreadshirt shop integrates well into your online presence that is for websites you own to communities to MySpace profile or blogs for that matter. You also have the option of setting up your shop in English or in French. One difference of Spreadshirt from CafePress or Zazzle is that it doesn’t have as many different items as CafePress or Zazzle has. Most common items on Spreadshirt are shirts, hoodies, jackets, caps, bags, coffee mugs etc.
Spreadshirt also offers you a premium option to open your shop. This costs $10 per month and in return you get your own designer shop (up to 3 shops), where customers can create products based on your designs and you get 20% commission on every sale made. These premium shops are completely ad free and you also have the option of running your own newsletter, customized invoices and packaging slips etc.
