Spreadshirt is the self-expression global e-commerce company. It empowers people to express themselves through creating, discovering, and selling clothing and accessories with messages they want the world to hear. Companies like Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube enable self-expression in the digital world but people don’t have the same opportunities in the real world where the need still exists. Spreadshirt’s three approaches – create your own, marketplace and shops – provide limitless opportunity for on-person self-expression. Founded in 2002, Spreadshirt is available in 12 languages, operates five global production sites and ships to over 170 countries. In 2018, it hit global revenue of $123 million, printed more than 5.5 million items, and had over 100,000 selling partners.
