Spreadshirt Launches SPOD (Spreadshirt Print-On-Demand)

January 15, 2019

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 15, 2019--Spreadshirt, the global self-expression e-commerce company, is pleased to introduce SPOD (Spreadshirt Print-On-Demand), an exciting new venture into print-on-demand (POD) drop shipping. Backed by Spreadshirt’s sixteen years of POD mastery, SPOD hits the ground running with a quick and easy POD drop shipping solution for both offline enterprises and online shop systems such as Shopify.

As the popularity and accessibility of e-commerce point-of-sale options increases, so grows the need for fast, reliable print-on-demand apparel and accessory fulfillment and drop shipping. With turnaround times of less than 48-hours for over 97% of orders and return rates of <1% for every 100,000 items printed, SPOD has cornered the market for speed, quality, and reliability.

The SPOD application comes complete with an embedded product customization tool, an ever-growing library of over 50K free-to-use designs, and an initial offering of over 65 top-quality apparel and accessories products. Once installed, SPOD instantly connects merchants to an entirely new stream of creativity and revenue. Within minutes, merchants can offer a merchandising component to their business, growing their brands with their own designs on their own products at no cost to them.

According to SPOD Director, Robert Schulz: “ Simply put, SPOD packages Spreadshirt’s nearly two decades of POD experience in a simple and intuitive free application created specifically for ecommerce shop systems. Couple over 34 million items printed with sixteen years of product curation, print machine optimization and service experience, and you’ve got a can’t-miss POD fulfillment solution for any brand large or small.”

“ Spreadshirt’s production and fulfilment operations generate a market-leading choice of products coupled with award-winning customer service,” says Philip Rooke, CEO Spreadshirt. “ With two production facilities in the U.S. and three in Europe, we are in a unique position to provide world-class fulfilment services for other brands. We believe we’ve done just that with SPOD. ”

Focusing initially on the American market, SPOD offers entrepreneurs and creators freedom of choice when it comes to their point-of-sale. The application works seamlessly in the background of creators’ preferred point-of-sale platforms, giving them the power of POD fulfillment in a familiar and native environment. Spreadshirt’s strong foothold in the European market will offer SPOD a natural transition to future overseas expansion.
