March was a great month of feature releases and improvements to the Threadless Artist Shops platform. Here’s a recap of the changes and updates that have been made, as well as a peek at future features!

New Features & Releases
JUST ADDED: Speed Improvements
We’ve upgraded Artist Shops to be faster and more stable for both you and your customers. These changes are a big improvement and give us a better structure as we grow Artist Shops past 100,000 users.
Color Management & Product Creation
We updated our product and color management tool to save you time and to make it even easier to add and remove colors. With the addition of the “add all” and “remove all” button, you can now add products even faster.
Try it out
Want to find out about the finer details of all the products you’re selling? Now you can! From t-shirts to tote bags, now there are detailed product descriptions you can check out with everything there is to know about each item you can offer.

Promotions & Coupons
The ability to create your own discount codes is coming, but in the meantime we’ve created a Friends & Family Code to share. This gives members of your team (or anyone you want to share the code with) the ability to buy your products at the base cost.
Share the code
You can now earn an extra $1 on select products every single week! We’ve created a calendar to let you know what’s coming up and how to get those products in your shop to promote.

More Shipping Capacity
We’ve added a west coast warehouse and shipping location to our operations. This allows for quicker turnaround during those important holiday sales. And depending on where a customer lives, it can also mean quicker delivery.
Updated Order Information
You now have visibility when any customer places an order using a discount. Whether they used the Friends & Family code or a Free Shipping code, you’ll be able to see it.
Your Artist Shops Products on Threadless.com
This has been a feature request since day one. Visitors will soon be able to see your new designs and go directly to your shop right from Threadless.com. Stay tuned for the big announcement!
