Our story started mid 2018. We began to upload our designs on Spreadshirt.de and Spreadshirt.com. In the beginning we were uploading all our designs by ourselves and we run into the problem of rejected designs a few times. Obviously that made things a bit more difficult, as we had to reupload the designs and do all the work again.
Later on we developed an automation script in AutoIt which is controlling the cursor. But once we introduced more and more Print On Demand (POD) platforms like RedBubble and MBA it became clear that AutoIt is not a sustainable solution for long term. We asked other designers how they solve this problem. They showed us different upload tools. Unfortunately these tools work only with Microsoft Excel, so we decided to develop our own, different, and more sustainable solution. We needed a simple and intuitive solution which would help us with managing and uploading to multiple platforms as well as help us with fast and easy reuploads.
Managing and uploading your designs really shouldn’t be so hard.
We started to develop a professional uploading tool for ourselves to automate all tasks. Our goal was to create an effective and intuitive tool for all the work we had in the POD area. We tried to keep everything as clear and easy to understand as possible. The development process took over one year of hard work in programming as well as extensive testing. Today we are sure that the work was definitely worth it. With the help of the tool we can work with many designs and platforms at the same time.
The text you read above was from mid 2020. These lines here are written April 2022. So much changed since start - or better said improved!
We launched end of 2020 our Research application Flying Research, build over the last two years a great team and our goal is now to bring the All-in-One solution to Print on Demand. Our user base grows every day and the whole team really hopes to welcome you also as soon as possible 🙂 .
