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.

Mission to the Stars! Spreadshirt Launches a Star Academy for Designers

June 15, 2021 in Brands Innovation
Mission to the Stars! Spreadshirt Launches a Star Academy for Designers

With its new “Star Academy” program, Spreadshirt – a Spread Group brand – promotes the visibility and sales of its designers on Spreadshirt’s Marketplaces. Based on their individual sales history, quality and design rating, the designers receive their place in one of five “star classes”. Determination and good ratings help them reach galactical heights. The higher the star class, the higher the benefits and consulting package.

Spreadshirt gets its designers on board of the “Star Academy” program to help them achieve greater visibility on Spreadshirt’s Marketplace and higher sales figures. All designers are placed in one of five star classes based on sales history, design quality, and relevance. These tiered levels unlock tailored benefits for them. Regardless of which star class the designers start in, they are provided with tailored support and expertise in marketing their designs. As usual in space travel, this mission knows only one direction – the stars are the limit!

”Every week, 140,000 designs are published on the Spread Group platforms. This result proves how creative and productive our community is. Star Academy equips designers with the necessary resources and marketing know-how to increase their sales,” says Gunter Nickel, Director of Spreadshirt Marketplaces.

The Star Academy is designed to award the determined designers is explicitly rewarded in the. Those who improve their own design quality and sales reach a higher star class and enjoy further advantages there. At the same time, the Star Academy ensures that the best designs in the Marketplace can be found more easily. New designers are supported with a starter package and placed in a higher star class as soon as they have published a minimum number of designs. If the drive for the mission falters for a while, the designers do not lose their star class. Losing your level only happens in case of breaking Spread Group’s community standards.

Spreadshop Shows Heart – The Hänsel+Gretel Child Protection Foundation

June 01, 2021 in Brands
Spreadshop Shows Heart – The Hänsel+Gretel Child Protection Foundation

Protecting and empowering children – the Hansel+Gretel Child Protection Foundation and Spreadshop put the focus on child awareness with products for all ages. Proceeds benefit the foundation’s prevention projects.

Once upon a time, there were two children who got lost in the deep, deep forest… But they were very strong, and so they found their way back home. These two kids became eponymous of the Hänsel+Gretel Child Protection Foundation. Children must not get lost, as they are in need of empowerment to develop their own strengths. As an organization for child protection in Germany, Hänsel+Gretel has made a decisive contribution to protecting children from physical, psychological, and sexualized violence by way of child-friendly education. In 24 years, they have implemented over 520 projects, often in cooperation with partners. Teaming up with Spreadshop, they have now developed products around the “NO means NO!” and “No Fairy Tale” campaigns, as represented on their No Fairy Tale Shop.

“Unfortunately, violence against children is not a fairy tale, but grim reality. The notion that “It doesn’t happen here” is a statistical fallacy. What is true, however, is the realization that “it can happen anywhere. With our work, we want to protect and strengthen children. We have now developed products for adults and children on which they can carry our messages, openly and unambiguously. We let the child take center stage and work on finding solutions by breaking new ground,” says Jerome Braun, Executive Director of the Hänsel+Gretel Child Protection Foundation.

Spreadshop Shows Heart – The Hänsel+Gretel Child Protection Foundation 2

The proceeds from the No Fairy Tale Shop are used to fund prevention projects such as the “tough kids box”. The concept was developed with the PETZE Institute for early childhood prevention in daycare centers. Playful methods are used to strengthen the children’s personalities and teach them how to respond to boundary violations. The Hänsel+Gretel Child Protection Foundation has set itself an ambitious goal for the next eight years, as Jerome Braun reports: “We want to reach 5,000 daycare centers and around 500,000 children with our “tough kids box”. We are encouraged by the many positive responses we have received from the 400 daycare centers where the educators are already working with the “tough kids box”.

The foundation’s podcast (in German) is another current project aimed at a broad adult audience. Twice a month, the Hänsel + Gretel team talks to a variety of people from the general public, academia, and child protection institutions. It’s important to bear in mind that – even if carefully addressed – descriptions of sexualized acts of violence against children can lead to a stressful or retraumatizing experience for some listeners. Fairy tales may usually have a happy ending, whereas children’s experiences not always do. Let’s make sure that things change for good.
