10 Ways Teespring’s New Launcher Will Revolutionize the Way You Sell Globally

Over the last several months the Teespring Team has been hard at work making significant improvements to the way our community creates and sells products. With this new launcher update, we aim to simplify the launch process, save you valuable time, expand our future product offering, and give buyers an optimized shopping experience when they visit your listings. We’re still in the early stages of testing but so far we’ve found international shoppers are 2x more likely to purchase on global listings compared to non-global listings!

Below we’ll discuss some of the immediate benefits this update offers sellers. Keep in mind the list below applies to new listings created with the new launcher. In the coming weeks, we’ll release additional updates to continue improving seller and buyer experience on Teespring. Learn how to create global listings in this demo video.

 

1) More products, more money!

Now you can add as many products and colors as you want—gone are the days of the 15 product limit! Easily combine apparel, accessories, and home products within your listings. You can offer all product types too…even ones that weren’t compatible in the past (like adult + children’s products). Also, the resizing issue some sellers experienced when combining certain product types (with smaller printable areas) is a thing of the past!

 

2) Fresh new mockups

Teespring product mockups are getting an update too! Based on your feedback it’s clear that shoppers prefer flat product mockups. From now on all upper-body apparel created in the new launcher (such as t-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, etc.) will feature our new flat-lay mockups.  

 

3) Goin’ global

Global products save you valuable time and effort by removing the necessity to create separate EU and US listings. These products can be fulfilled within the EU or US—the fulfillment region is determined by the buyer’s location. We’re planning to continue expanding the number of global product options in the launcher so keep an eye out for updates.

Look for the globe icon to identify global products in the launcher

 

4) Worldwide domination

You can easily identify global listings within the “Products” section of your dashboard. If you see a globe icon next to a listing (under “Region”) this means it offers global products.

You can identify global listings within the ‘Products’ section of your Teespring Account

 

5) Selling around the world

Adding global products to your listings creates an optimized shopping experience for buyers. Global listings automatically display the best shipping rates and delivery timelines based on each buyer’s location. This update should help boost listing performance—during testing we found European shoppers are 2x more likely to purchase on global listings compared to non-global listings!

 

6) Get Boosted!

Creating global products increases your total number of eligible products that can be added to the Boosted Network. Now you’ll have the chance to benefit from more Boosted Network listings without having to spend extra time creating products for multiple regions. Don’t forget if your listing is intended for a specific language market (like French) we still recommend optimizing your listings with translations.

 

7) The price is right

Another improvement the new launcher offers is the ability to customize profit per region during listing creation. By default, the profit will be similar for global products (EU + US) and you can easily adjust the selling price displayed for both regions.  

 

8) Variety is the spice of life

Not only can you offer products with unique designs in one listing, you can now add additional designs during launch too! Select “Add More Products” during listing setup and add your unique design for each product type. If you’re listing is already live you can use the “Add to existing listing” option as well. Keep in mind you can’t add different designs for the same product type (for example, two unisex shirts with two different designs), but you can add different designs for different product types (see example of unisex shirt and ladies tee below). Use your listings to sell matching products to couples, friends, parents/kids, bachelor/bachelorette groups, and more—the possibilities are endless!

Example of custom ‘his and her’ t-shirts 

 

9) All it takes is one!

In December 2017 we took the first steps to removing the ‘goal’ concept from Teespring. Moving forward you’ll notice there are no selling goals associated with listings created in the new launcher. If you sell one product the order will go to print. It’s as simple as that!

 

10) It’s all about timing

Teespring has become a platform where people can sell products that are always available…and when the community shared feedback that the “End Time” countdown timer located in the “Products” section of seller accounts was a bit confusing we agreed! From now on you’ll notice a new “Next Print” section instead. “Next Print” indicates the time when current orders on your listing will go to print (print cycle). 

  • All products created in the new launcher will automatically be set to three-day print cycles and will always be available for purchase.
  • If you want to offer products for a limited time you can do this by updating your listing’s lifecycle settings after launch. Learn more. 
  • If there are no orders placed when the timer ends it will reset to three days and start counting down again.
  • Don’t forget print cycles won’t end on the weekends, so we may add extra days to the print cycle to ensure it doesn’t end on Friday, Saturday or Sunday—keep in mind orders will still be delivered within the correct timeframe.
  • You can choose to remove or add the countdown timer to all of your listings within your account setting as shown below.

    Absolutely brilliant. You’ve added everything I wanted. I hope I get beta’d, but if not I shall wait with bursting excitement of the roll out.

    I 😍 LOVE IT! Thanks

  3. Patrick says:

    There is no more artwork?

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      We’ve removed the clipart tool in the new launcher. We found that text-based or graphics based designs perform much better compared to designs created with clipart.

  4. Clydeisha Houston says:

    Thanks for these updates and improvements ive lost a lot of sales because of the 3 product limit and not being able to mix kids clothes with adult orders Thanks sooo much

  8. Ambika says:

    Hi there
    I have an question that can we share our design directly to Amazon?

  9. Brandon says:

    Can we still donate to charities? I’ve looked through the Launcher and post creation settings, and haven’t found the charity list.

      1. Anth says:

        This doesn’t really answer the question. I don’t see anywhere in the new launcher where to indicate a charity without having to email TeeSpring.

  10. Sujay chatterjee says:

    How do I get the launcher ?

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

        Please I’d love to be added too, been waiting patiently for this but it’s taking longer than I thought it would.

        1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

          You’re on the list. Hoping to activate soon.

  11. MARCO says:

    I dnt like the new way to design shirts because I can no longer put my graphics on the back of neck .. and you can’t stretch the image vertically so its difficult unless you design in a template.. you guys would have been better off adding print location.. Side an top of hoodie .. sleeves of hoodies, sweater and long sleeves .. back of neck logos.. short sleeve logos .. would be better than flags beach towels and tote bags

  12. ARK says:

    I still didn’t get the update..
    when I’m gonna get??
    I’m waiting eagerly.

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Ark! We’re opting in people little by little, I’ll submit your email for beta access.

      1. Josh Potter says:

        please remove my access to the beta testing….I like the old designer much better

        1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

          Hey Josh – I’ll put in a request to remove you. I’ve collected feedback from beta users and we’ll fix some of the issues you were experiencing.

  13. MICHAEL E. HILL says:

    I, like you’re Ideas, Ethics, Plans, GROWTH.

  14. Umer says:

    It is an exciting news and the new launcher seems very good for the sellers. But I have a question about the campaigns that are already launched. Will we be able to edit the existing campaigns with the new launcher? I mean due to the limitation of colors I have to launch two or more campaigns of the same design, will I be able to edit these campaigns so that all of the products show under a single campaign?

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Umer! These features can only be applied to listings created in the NEW launcher. This means you’ll need to create new listings once you’ve gotten access. Yes – with the new launcher there are no product or color limits. 🙂

      1. Umer says:

        Oh. So it means I will have to stop uploading new designs and wait until I get the update. Can you please put me on the list for beta access.
        Thank you.

        1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

          I’ve added you to beta request list – we’ll start adding more people once we’ve fixed a bug we’ve discovered.

      2. Ashley says:

        Hi Kate. I had a few questions.
        If sellers are not able to edit existing campaigns with the new launcher, is it possible to turn existing campaigns into global listings?
        If we are not able to edit a campaign with the new launcher, how will we be able to do so if we need to make a change in the future?
        Also, I still haven’t gotten the update yet. Could I please be added to the list for beta access? Thanks.

        1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

          1) Not yet – but soon!
          2) See above
          3) I’ll add you to the beta list – we’re fixing a bug first before adding new users so it may take a week or so.

  15. clothes says:

    That is a great tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Brief but very precise information… Thank you for sharing this one.
    A must read article!

    Please add me to your beta request listing?
    Thanks.

  17. Keith says:

    The new designer is missing features.
    1- The t-shirt is visibly to small to design on when scaling. Can barely see what you’re doing because the pointer and icons get in the way.
    2- Wha happened to the intregated art uploads you guys had to choose from the teespring art?
    3- You can’t git rid of the backound on the art uploaded. The push behind/forward feature is missing.
    4 – The text fonts should be put back into categories like before so the user doesn’t have to keep scrolling down just to scroll all the way back up because the choice font was missed.
    5 – The original looking T-shirts like the ones you now have in the “Create and buy your won shirt” looks a lot better. That original design tool was a lot easier to use. The T-shirt was large enough to work on in the workspace.

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Thanks for the feedback Keith! We’re working on updating the launcher based on user feedback this week. More updates to come.

  18. BILLY says:

  21. Tyreese says:

    Hello Kate!!!
    First kudos to TEESPRING for being innovative!! I LOVE TEESPRING!!! Thank you for the update that is coming soon. When will it be available for the entire community? I have a design concern: Under the current format the T-Shirt Mock Up Model is PERFECT! It is large and our designs stand out!! The old version is more 3D looking. The printing area seems much larger than the new. Under the new design, the mock up seems flat and smaller. I am not receiving that same WOW FACTOR when uploading designs. Could we possibly make the new mock ups bigger so that when buyers come to our pages, the designs will POP off the shirts like they do now. One thing that inspired me to join Teespring was seeing how designs really stood out on the marketplace. My concern is that we will loose some of that magic. Thank you for adding the PROMO CODE too!! SOOOOO EXCITED for the launch!! GAME CHANGER!!!!

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Tyreese! We’re working to update the new mockups based on beta user feedback! Stay tuned! 🙂

      1. Tyreese says:

        Thank you so much for that Kate!! Could you also add my other teespring account to the new format before the launch date? By the way, when is the release for everyone?

        1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

          Hey Tyreese – I’ve added this email as well to beta request list. Full launch depends on beta testing progress. Right now we’re adding some new updates based on user feedback. There are several more updates we plan to add before full launch.

  26. AT says:

    Hey Guys,
    Thanks for the Update!
    Do I have to have a minimum number of Sales to be a part of the Launcher?
    Or can I just bat my eyelids and say Pretty Please? 🙂
    Thanks for your time.
    🙂

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey AT! I’ve added your name to the request list. We’re working on fixing a bug before adding new users. Should be a week or so. 🙂

    Thank you in advance.

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Ok! We’re working to fix a bug now and then we’ll add more people. It maybe be a week or so.

  29. Melissa says:

    I would love to have the new launcher, but I don’t know how..

  30. Richard Blanton says:

    I am NOT a big fan of the new design tools..The old system was much more user friendly, and had a lot of more options..I will have to find another way to design what I sell..Very unhappy !!

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Richard – I’ve been collecting feedback from current users and we’ve got some improvements planned soon. Hold tight!

      1. Kevin says:

        No clipart library? That was a super beneficial tool Teespring had…I don’t know if I’m missing something but I did not see where I could add or search for clipart…

      2. Chris S. says:

        Hi! Very Agree with Richard. The new design has a lot of missings, comparing with the previous one. No clip art library, no possiblity anymore to set the proper currency for each campaign, poor design editing tools now. Not such user friendly anymore, and with not so much editing options as well. It is more like a downgrade now. 🙁

        1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

          Hey Chris! Thanks for your feedback.

          1. We removed the clipart tool because designs created with clipart do not convert as well, especially in the boosted network
          2. You don’t need to set the currency ~ the currency automatically updates based on buyer location. You can customize prices for each region during launch process.
          3. I’m not sure which design editing tools you’re referring too–you can still resize, edit, etc. on the mockups.

          I would like to add that the new flat mockups have PROVEN to increase conversion rates ~ we’ve already seen the rate increase by 10% compared to old mockups. Also, the new grey background was added for optimization within several of our integrated marketplaces in the boosted network.

          We tested all of these changes and collected feedback from beta users before implementing the update. We have been able to add 8 new products to the launcher and we’ve got a couple more updates on the way that you guys are going to find very useful. 😉

          1. Emmanuel says:

            I wish the transparent image button would be implemented again. That was very useful to me

  31. Emily says:

    Why are some of these still in effect like the 15 product limit, and the goal?

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Emily – because most people are still using the old launcher. We are working on opting in people to the new launcher beta little by little.

  32. Al Zampieri says:

    I had a t-shirt concession for 42 years and the best selling color was sandstone(light beige)I would like to see you add this color.

  33. Tiel says:

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

  37. Jerry King says:

    Thank You Tee Springs! I have done pretty well for a novice. The new design is much better to work with. I am disabled and it is hard for me to shoot out new designs.But this may help some. Thanks again for offering this service.

  38. Glenn says:

  44. Jonald says:

    I like the features of the new launcher but i have some concerns.
    1. The t shirt mockups i think they are smaller than the old launcher.
    2. You cannot put the exact size of the image. With the old launcher you can just type the size and it will adjust automatically,
    now its very difficult to adjust the size of the image you want.
    3. The printable image are smaller.
    4. When you duplicate your existing designs you have to upload the new image again.
    My major concern here is if you can just please make the printable image bigger that would be fine.

    Thank you 🙂

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Jonald – Thanks for the feedback! Check out the latest blog post regarding mockups. 😉

  45. Talha Jubaer says:

    Hey, I really want to get access to the new launcher. You guys did a really good job. Now Sellers will get extra time on researching. Launching will take less time.

  46. Talha Jubaer says:

    You Guys Did a Really Good Job. I really want to get access in the new launcher Please.

  47. Amp says:

    When are we going to get YouTube integration. We meet all guidelines but it’s still not a feature that’s active on all eligible channels. Thanks.

  48. Dana says:

    Add me to the new launcher please?

  49. Sharon A. Gore says:

    Hi, I haven’t been online for a few days and just logged into my Teespring account to find out that there has been an update or new launcher program. I must admit, it through me for a bit, but I am sure you will have tutorials on how to use the new version of Teespring, correct? Please update and inform me of the new process tutorials. I have enjoyed the old process for two months now and feel a little like a “fish out of water.” Thanks!

  50. Clint says:

    Why can I not upload vector art anymore? It says jpg, png, etc. My .eps and .ai won’t even show up in the upload window. Let me know if I’m doing something wrong.

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey Clint! We recommend submitting PNGs, the launcher does not currently accept EPS file format. Learn more: https://community.teespring.com/training-center/design-file-tips-best-practices/

  51. silver_boy says:

    New launcher is ok, because I can add unlimited number of colors. But.. mock up for the hoodies and t-shirts is just… It can not compare to the old one. The old one just looking more muscular, expensive (that’s work for me since 95% of my sales goes on mans hoodie & t-shirts)
    There is big difference between old and new mock up for the pullover hoodie. That new one is appear to be much more wider. So the same design will cover only half front side, but on the old mock up will cover basically the whole front size. So what will customer get? If I go with the old launcher the whole front size will be printed? or only half (as appearing on the new mock up)
    The reason why I decided to give my opinion is because I received message from the customer ( interested in hoodie with the new mock up) asking if
    he can get the hoodie like the one I’m offering with the other (old mock up) designs.

    1. Kate Shoaf Kate Shoaf says:

      Hey there! We’ve just updated the hoodie mockups based on seller feedback. Take a look! 🙂
