When designing your Spreadshop products, you have up to four print areas available: on the front, back, left sleeve and right sleeve of your product. The following article will explain how to create products while keeping a keen eye on your target group.
How multiple print areas work
Designing products with several print areas is not so different from just using one print area. In your design overview, click on "Upload more designs" to create a product. A panel will open and give you the choice of either uploading another design or creating a product with multiple print areas. You can’t combine the two actions. Now click on “Create products with several print areas”.
Next up, you can choose to place your designs on different print areas. You can utilize one design per print area. If you should select four designs, we will only show you product groups that actually have four print areas available. When selecting two designs, the selection of products will consequently be much bigger.
Then work on your product as usual: Click on the design, select size and position of the design and choose your product colour. Move the designs back and forth between the individual print areas to arrange them the way you want. You can also designate a design as your main design by marking it with the star symbol. This design will then be displayed first in both the product view and the design view of your Spreadshop (in Shop Settings > Pages > List page).
Your price matters
When creating products with several print areas, each additional print area will incur a printing fee of $4.50 (CAD 6.00/AUD 7.50). The retail price for your Shop products will therefore be higher if you use more than one print area. If you have activated the Customize Tool in your Shop, customers can place additional designs on your products themselves. We only charge customers per print area, regardless of the number of designs they use to customize it. Your customers will be charged extra for customizing additional print areas, but your margin won’t change.
Only exception: If a customer personalises a product in your Shop using a paid community design, these costs will be added to the retail price. This won’t change your margin either.
