    After creating my product, is it essential to get with a store such as eBay to get my product for sell? Such as the set up like printify?

    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Hey Patricia, no this is not essential! There are many other ways to get your products to sell including free promotional methods e.g. social media!

    Can I use my own artwork, or do I have to use what is available on your site?

    1. Lucy Ford says:

      Hi Julie you can definitely use your own artwork on Teespring products. Placeit allows you to create designs if you don’t have the tools already

      1. Gwen Crockford says:

        yes but how? how do i get a blank tee to put text and my on photo/ is there a blank template?

        1. Lucy Ford says:

          Hey there, if you are referring to PlaceIt you can find free blank mockup templates to upload your design to here. If you are looking to create and sell a product on Teespring you can do that here.

    How do I get my mockups from placeit on to my teespring account?

    I’ve created dozens of garment only mockups on my placeit account already. Can I upload it to my tee spring account without having to use your templates? i don’t see a feature for that. Or can I only upload logos to my tee spring account? Seems counter productive considering I’ve already paid for the year but now I can’t actually do anything with the clothing mockups I’ve made. Please Help!

    1. Luiza Jordan says:

      Hey there, that’s great you’ve been using Placeit. You can only use our templates right now, but we’re working on it. The best way to use your Placeit mockups is for creating super effective promos for social media, as your fans can visualize your designs being worn!

    Hi there,
    What if another user is already selling a design from placeit on teespring, but I want to sell it on teespring as well? Since it’s free from placeit neither of us own it technically, so would it be ok for me to sell?

    1. Mo Sadek says:

      Just to clarify, if I use the same image from placeit as another user, but make a modification such as the wording on the image, that would be considered my own design and thus be ok to sell?
      Thank you

    2. César Gavito says:

      I also have the same question because I use place it for my shirt designs and I got a campaign removed because maybe it looked like another user who probably used the same image, I didn’t copy nobody I just used the image from place it and still got a warning, at first I thought it was a website mistake and I did it three times and got warned three times. I just started and it seems I won’t get my trust score back and my risk of getting banned from teespring May be high , now I’m scared of using place it for teespring…

      1. Luiza Jordan says:

        Hello! It sounds like your listings were flagged/auto-removed. Note your trust score is not usually impacted by getting auto-flagged. If you think the listing takedown was an error you can contact [email protected] (learn more: Regarding using purchased designs, sites like Placeit, normally have different types of licenses that are non-exclusive, so multiple people can typically sell the same design.

    Is it possible to use an actual mockup with an actual person showing as the thumbnail instead of the plain tshirt?

    1. Luiza Jordan says:

      Hello, not yet unfortunately! This is something we’re looking into. You can use Placeit for promotional material across your social media platforms 🙂

  7. Julie says:

    Is there a way to upload my own photos that I’ve taken of product samples to my Teespring listings? Can’t find the answer to this question anywhere.

    1. Luiza Jordan says:

      Hey, no, unfortunately this isn’t possible yet. I will feed back this idea to the team though 🙂

  8. Tarin says:

    I just started and have designs made and in my tee spring store and I’m now working on mockups in placeit. My question, is there a way to get the mockup to look the same as the actual product? (Ie the tee spring mugs are not entirely one color the handle is different and/or the shirt style in the mockups may look different than my product) .

    1. Luiza Jordan says:

      Hey, I’m afraid we are a separate entity to Placeit. You’ll need to just find the closest product images that you can. I’d suggest ordering samples and creating content yourself to show your fans exactly what your products look like!

  9. Jeremy says:

    I just sign up with Teespring. I have done many designs and mockups with Placet. How do I upload these designs with mockups on my Teespring account?
    Thank you.

    1. Luiza Jordan says:

      Hey! We generate product mockups for creators on Teespring. You aren’t able to upload your own images to add to your listings! Placeit mockup images are better used for promotional material on social media platforms!
