This is really great, although I still have a problem with all the add on products! I would like to offer my customer all shirt styles on the order page. The designers can pick their royalty for each shirt style as well as the colors in their admin. Right now that means for each design I have to do a separate shirt style, right? Is there a way Amazon can develop this for us? I believe it would bring in more sales for everyone!

joannejgg the back specs are the same but the front has to be 4500x4050 PX or 15x13.5" @ 300 DPIElizabeth@Amazon while I am glad to have the hoodie option I'm really disappointed in the profit margin, $5.00 on a $39.99 hoodie seems really low. Hoodies cost about $8 more than tees at wholesale yet sell for $20 more at retail, how about we split that $12 in addition profit and you make the sellers profit $11 on a sale of a $39.99 hoodie? That would encourage us to create more hoodie designs, Merch would sell more hoodies and we'd all make more $$$

Is the rollout for sweatshirts and hoodies finished yet? We're Tier 500 so we should be eligible, but they're not showing up as options for us when we try to list a new item.

Remember to change design specs for the hoodie front to 4500 x 4050 pix. @300 DPI. Hoodie back is 4500 x 5400 pix. I've had no problem uploading images to hoodies. Sweatshirt specs are same as for tshirts, 4500 x 5400 pix.
