New feature at TeamShirts – Online shops for professional team outfits

TeamShirts is the specialist for group orders at Spread Group. Now the provider is expanding its portfolio by offering “TeamShop”, a straightforward way to create custom team collections for clubs, companies and schools.

The TeamShirts brand has focused on team outfits in the print-on-demand sector since 2014. It has now launched the “TeamShop” platform, for the time being in German only. From now on, teams of all kinds can set up their own shop online and provide their members, staff, and supporters with professional team clothing. The free shop feature offers an individual solution for clubs, companies and teams to provide collections that are true to their corporate design. Various functionalities of the online shop provide an incentive to jointly design and share team clothing. True to the print-on-demand approach of TeamShirts, customized items are only produced after an order has been placed.

Uniform clothing for sports teams, charity initiatives & more

“TeamShop offers an exclusive and permanently accessible equipment portfolio that can be put together for different teams. Our shop feature convinces in terms of easy handling, complete freedom to design the collections and attractive product prices for the individual team members,” says Elmar Kühn, Director at TeamShirts. The product range consists of high-quality articles from brands such as JAKO and Erima in the sports sector, and Stanley&Stella and Russel for corporate wear, offering a wide selection of colors, sizes and designs. The print areas for team logos and sponsoring as well as text placements can also be flexibly selected.

The shop feature does not only focus on sports clubs and associations. “Teams of all kinds can create their own TeamShop. There are already shops on our platform for charity initiatives, student associations, e-gamers, high-schools and companies,” says Elmar Kühn. Shortly after the launch of the shop feature, more than 100 TeamShops have already been launched.
In order to make TeamShop even more attractive and accessible outside the DACH regions, TeamShirts is already working on the expansion of its product range and the international rollout.

Follow-up: The radioeins gallery moves into Bikini Berlin

Follow-up: The radioeins gallery moves into Bikini Berlin

Spreadshop and Berlin radio station radioeins are putting artwork by Berlin artists on T-shirts. The “radioeins gallery” campaign has just opened an exhibition in Berlin’s Bikini shopping center.

At the beginning of May, the virtual “radioeins gallery” was launched (click here for the news article). The joint campaign by Spreadshop and Berlin radio station radioeins is helping Berlin artists through the pandemic by printing their artwork on T-shirts. The “art to wear”, as the campaign website puts it, is available for purchase in the radio station’s shop.

Now the online gallery is coming to the offline world and can be experienced in an exhibition space in Berlin’s Bikini shopping center in Charlottenburg. Over the summer months, the T-shirts can be admired as canvases in a pop-up box. On site, visitors can order their favorite T-shirts directly to their homes via QR code in the online store of the radioeins gallery. Spreadshop takes care of the printing and shipping of the products.

We are happy that we can take our joint campaign to another level and that the gallery can now be seen in a real exhibition space. As a result, the artwork on T-shirts will gain even more attention and a much larger audience,” says Johanna Wallburg, Key Account Manager at Spreadshop.

Follow-up: The radioeins gallery moves into Bikini Berlin
“This is art. It can’t go!” is the message on radioeins’ campaign website

The proceeds from the sale of the radioeins gallery Spreadshop will be used to support artists in the pandemic. The following Berlin artists are participating in the campaign:

Franziska Maderthaner
Julia Maier
Matthias Dornfeld
Moritz Schleime
Roman Lipski
Kennet Lekko
Kim Dreyer

Detailed information about the participants, their work and their motives can be found on the website of the radioeins gallery.

Spread Group Is Awarded the Family-Friendliness Prize of the City of Leipzig

June 24, 2021 in Company Insights
Spread Group Is Awarded the Family-Friendliness Prize of the City of Leipzig

The City of Leipzig’s Family Friendliness Award has been presented for the 13th time. This year, companies and institutions were honored that showed particular commitment to the compatibility of family and career during the pandemic. In the “Retail & Distribution” category, Spread Group received the award for being a family-friendly employer.

Local companies became particularly active and also creative in the context of family friendliness during the pandemic. That was the big issue at this year’s presentation of the City of Leipzig’s Family Friendliness Award 2021. Several Leipzig businesses and institutions applied, and Spread Group can count itself among the award winners.

The compatibility of family and career is a living culture at the Spread Group. For home-schooling and home-care, parents working at the company were provided with additional technical equipment for digital lessons. Working hours can be individually timed to fit in with family situations. Strategies have been devised for online meetings to ensure that the fun factor is not neglected. Digital sports breaks, lunch lotteries or an Easter challenge are just some of the actions implemented to support the team during the pandemic. This also applied to the children: For them, special kids’ yoga classes and a kids’ disco were created,” says the current press release of the city of Leipzig.

In his laudatory speech at the award ceremony, Georg Teichert, Central Equal Opportunities Officer for Equal Opportunities, Diversity and Family at the University of Leipzig, paid tribute to Spread Group: “Giving expression to messages is Spread Group’s corporate idea, and when it comes to family-friendliness, this company has a very clear plan for its employees, where home office has long been part of everyday life. The corporate culture is characterized by flat hierarchies, a willingness to engage in dialog and participation at all levels.
The jury of the Family Friendliness Award was particularly impressed by the fact that Spread Group has always thought about the children of its employees and has created (virtual) formats such as Kid’s Yoga or Kids’ Disco.
With the words “We as jury members say ‘wow’ and are thrilled by so much commitment!” Silvia Lauterbach, Head of Recruiting & Employer Branding at Spread Group, will ceremoniously hand over the certificate and the prize money. “Many thanks for this award and this great laudation! I would like to give a very special thanks to our colleagues and Spread Group’s management. They have always supported and promoted all these ideas and actions. Hopefully, we will continue to have the courage to be an innovative pioneer and inspirer,” says Silvia Lauterbach.

Spread Group’s Image of Family Friendliness

Work-life balance has been an integral part of Spread Group’s culture since the beginning. As a family-friendly employer, the company relies on 100% trust-based working hours with flexible home office options and usually no appointments after 4 pm. With a very accessible HR department, family-friendly part-time models can be agreed with the employee and implemented promptly. In addition, the company has maintained a successful cooperation with a daycare center in Leipzig for several years. Since 2011, the company’s Feel-Good Management department has also been firmly established. Among other things, it organizes yoga and meditation breaks and joint after-work events for colleagues, summer parties and hiking days, as well as children’s activities such as the kids’ disco and painting activities, all of which currently take place virtually.

In addition to Spread Group, other Leipzig institutions and companies have been honored for their commitment as family-friendly employers. The award winners include pioneer communications GmbH, the Mütterzentrum Leipzig e.V. association and the Dr. Anita Wieser practice. Kunststoffzentrum gGmbH was also honored with the special prize of the Leipzig Chamber of Industry and Commerce. The prize of the children’s jury went to a Grünau cooperation project between the Grünau Family Center (Caritas Leipzig e.V.), Haus Steinstraße e.V. and the association dezentrale e.V. The prize was awarded in a small circle of finalists on June 18, 2021 in the LVZ dome.
