Sven Burscher, Spread Group’s Head of Licensing said:
“Made-to-order merch is a perfect fit for gaming and esports. Pro and amateur gamers, along with their fans, can develop their sense of community with team merch. Print-on-demand makes customisation possible, so everyone get an item they are proud to wear.”
“Made-to-order also has impressive sustainability credentials as nothing is created until it is ordered. This reduces waste and because consumers are invested in their order, and their team, the returns are very low; below 2%. It offers gamers, fans and brands a new, sustainable aspect merch”.
