Like or Create Your Own Diamond Jubilee Souvenir at Spreadshirt
London, 24 April 2012, Global clothing-commerce platform Spreadshirt has today opened voting for its Royalist vs. Republican Diamond Jubilee souvenir competition on its Facebook page. Spreadshirt shop partners from across Europe and the USA have been entering designs since Easter, to celebrate (or not!) the 60 year reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Spreadshirt and Jubilee fans are encouraged to share and like the designs via the social network and Spreadshirt will count the likes to determine the winning design.
Designs include variations on British stamps, punk images of the Queen and a cup of tea. http://www.spreadshirt.co.uk/diamond+jubilee
Spreadshirt’s personalisation platform means that all the designs can be added to t-shirts, hoodies, aprons, even babygrows via the Spreadshirt Facebook page. Designers and customers can choose a ready-made design from the Spreadshirt marketplace or create their own Jubilee souvenir in time for the June festivities.
Design guru Karl Lagerfeld is set to join the celebrations for the Jubilee by offering live commentary of the event on French television. And London's luxury department stores including Harrods and Harvey Nichols are embracing the celebrations by giving their respective windows a patriotic makeover.
