An exciting new way to see, share, and sell your Spoonflower designs

AUG 8, 2016

Remember a few months ago when we introduced you to our new sister company, Roostery? They are a small team that’s working to help bring your unique home dec projects and ideas to life, no sewing skills required. You can take your Spoonflower designs or designs you love in our Marketplace, and order them to be sew up (in the USA) on various products like cocktail napkins, placemats, tea towels, and pillows. We’re excited to have Kate from the Roostery team stop by the blog today to share all the exciting updates the Roostery team has been working hard on over the past few months!

Roostery offers printing on 2 types of finished pillow

Kate: In preparation for our official launch later this month, The Roostery team has been hard at work making updates. You can now search the Spoonflower Marketplace on Roostery.com, preview any design on a 3D product model, and peruse themed medley collections. But, the change we think you’ll be most excited about is that we now have My Designs and designer shops.

preview your designs on Roostery pillows, napkins, tea towels and more by clicking My Designs on the Roostery site.
Anyone who has created a design in their Spoonflower account will now be able to preview it on Roostery pillows, napkins, tea towels and more by clicking My Designs on the Roostery site.

Pro Tip: To access your Roostery shop, paste your shop/user name at the end of this url: https://roostery.com/e?user= just remember to use a _ instead of spaces

When you visit your shop or My Designs section you may notice that some designs appear as flat designs and others are visible on a product. The designs that are flat have not yet been clicked on or ‘cached’. You can help improve the look and shoppability of your storefront by clicking on any of the designs that are still showing as flat designs. When you do, we will automatically start the process of generating the 3D preview.

Here is an example–the two designs on the right have not yet been cached.

After you click on them and generate the 3D preview, the results will look like this.

Your shoppable URL will display a random selection of Roostery products with your designs. You can share your shoppable URL as is but, if you really love the way your designs look on the Catalan pillow, for example, you can pre-select that product in the View On Products menu on the left, before copying the URL to share.

    Are you using Roostery labels on all items ordered or are the labels just for the photos in the blog? I’d rather include my brand or label on products I designed.
    Maybe “My company name by Roostery”.
