We have some breaking news from Spreadshop land as the gang talks about an awesome new Spreadshop feature, that's of course completely free to use! Moose doesn't know how this can even be free.... but we assure you it's 1000% free. Unlike other players out there in the custom merch game, Spreadshop never charges you for these awesome features. In fact, we love taking the feedback we receive, giving it to our Wizards so they can cook up some amazing magic to make your experience even more fantastic! ❓To answer Moose's question of "How is this even free??! The answer is simple! The better we make the custom shop experience for you, the more you'll want to sell, and when you sell we all make money. We then keep reinvesting that money on better products and tools for creators. 🧗 We're climbing this Merch mountain together!

"Just looking at the site and how easy it is to manage as a creative myself. It was a no-brainer. It’s just so simple. You upload the image, you launch it, you design it yourself, or you can have someone design it for you, its too easy. And I’ve got other stuff going on in my life, the less I have to worry about, branding the dark prince, the better, you know? What I like about Spreadshop is my fans can go in there and pick the color of the shirt they want, we get inspired by their designs just as they do ours. And it’s so fun and I love they can go in there and make their own phrase." - Motherwife Insert your demonic hissing sounds here! And ALL HAIL MR. BUBZ!
