Our Designer Just Got So, So Much Better

Yesterday we released thousands of new images for you to use on your tees.

It’s all thanks to a collaboration with The Noun Project, a catalog of graphics and symbols sourced from designers all over the world. The Noun Project aims to provide the tools for a universal human visual language, and now that language is at your fingertips.

By tapping into this rich visual library you’ll find a new, much larger range of images on the Teespring platform. Before, you had roughly 5,000 images to search from in the designer. Now, you’ll find nearly a hundred thousand of them, as a part of an ever-expanding library.

In other words, creating unique shirts is now easier than ever before.

You can access the images by searching in the “search for art” section of Teespring’s designer.

Here’s some of our favorite new campaigns, created using only images from the designer.

We want to bring your amazing tee ideas to life. All of them.

Every week we do a good job of this, printing and shipping thousands of the shirts you and people like you create. But there are always ways that we can make your campaigns more successful.

We realized that a sales goal of 10 was getting in the way of your success, and that you could sell so many more awesome shirts if we could produce smaller batches. So we did some production work and…

as of today, the world of Teespring is getting a major update: the new sales goal minimum is 5!

A Way, Way Better Dashboard

Imagine for a moment you’re test driving the latest new luxury sports car. The controls and dash look incredibly sleek – it’s impressive, and suddenly you have an incredible amount of power at your fingertips.

Find Your Niche with Audience Intersect

Now, you can discover the precise audience for your Teespring campaigns by combining several different interests using a powerful new tool called Audience Intersect.

New Intellectual Property Guide

A big part of ensuring the success of your campaigns includes helping you understand intellectual property law (IP) and how it applies to the campaigns you create and share. For your reference, we created and published a comprehensive intellectual property guide.

In our guide, you’ll find:

  • Definitions: A breakdown of different legal terms, in terms you can understand
  • Checklist: A handy list of often-infringed-upon marks to review before launching your campaign
  • Resources: A collection of websites you can use to search for registered marks, or solicit free legal advice
  • Our Processes: Information about how and why campaigns are removed, how to file a complaint, and more.
  • Examples: Over a dozen Teespring-specific examples of how to avoid copyright infringement and trademark infringement.

Here’s an example of one design found on our site, and two different designs it inspired.  One of them was original, and one was shut down for infringement.

In this guide, you’ll find all the information you need to create campaigns you can launch confidently, without any worry that they might be taken down or suspended for infringement.

Have a suggestion for something we could add to our IP guide, or a specific question you’d like an answer to? We’re standing by in our forums – we’d love to hear from you!
