The Be Purple shop showcases designs from famous, upcoming or just simply creative people supporting a great cause. The straightforward submission process means that a design idea can very quickly be up for sale, leading to the number and choice of designs growing with the help of the community.
Natasha Giraudel, Marketing Manager at The Scouts says, “The Spreadshirt platform is enabling us to engage with our supporters in a way not possible before. The print-on-demand technology is allowing us to open the design process to all our supporters with bright new design ideas for our clothing range. You don't need to be a professional illustrator or an artistic genius. Just visit the site and send us your image and we'll get in touch if your design is chosen for the Be Purple shop!”
“The best bit is that every penny generated through your purchase, or design, goes straight into the development of the huge number of activities that we offer over half a million young people every year, while also opening the adventure up to the 34,000 still on the waiting list” continues Ms. Giraudel.
Philip Rooke, Chief Executive Officer at Spreadshirt adds “With our high quality clothing supporters can create something they will want to wear, ensuring that their chosen charity’s message gets out to many different spaces, which may be difficult to reach with traditional promotional methods. By putting their message on to clothing, pro-active not-for-profit organisations can successfully raise awareness.”
“Choosing Spreadshirt also means we can make use of their full customer services offering so we are free to focus on showcasing the talents of great designers supporting an important cause.” concludes Ms. Giraudel.
The Spreadshirt online custom clothing platform offers limited initial investment risk for its shop partners, whilst the speed at which a design idea can be for sale, the quality of the clothing and accessories and quick delivery times ensure a customer-friendly experience. Spreadshirt shop-partners can quickly and easily open their own custom (white label) online shop as a seamless extension to their websites. Spreadshirt in turn, handles all the stocking, online orders, payments, delivery (within 3-5 days in the UK) and returns, leaving shop partners to focus solely on their main activity and promoting their shops.
Founded in 2002 in Leipzig Germany, Spreadshirt is a global online custom clothing platform with headquarters in Germany and the United States and factories in North America, Germany and Poland to allow rapid delivery to customers.

About The Scouts Association
The Scout Association provides adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for 400,000 young people aged 6-25. Internationally, we have over 28 million young people enjoying the benefits of Scouting across 216 countries. Personal development means promoting the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of the individual, helping them achieve their full potential. In Scouting, we believe that young people develop most when they are 'learning by doing,' when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves.
