Templates help you make your print on demand products faster, and with the assurance that they will look good when uploaded.
Now, Threadless does in fact provide a spiral notebook template on their site. But it’s not very helpful, being just a rectangle in the dimensions Threadless suggest [2000 x 2826px].
My file, in contrast, has more useful features Firstly, I specify what areas will be cut off or not visible in product photos, by making those areas red.
Second, I mark where the spiral binding occurs, so you know not to put anything important in that area.
Third, I added guidelines so you can centre your design in relation to where the binding ends. I feel like this is important because, if you just centre the art according to the document bounds, it may ‘appear’ more off-centre.

It also has guides that your artwork will snap to, making centering of designs super easy.
Please note that, whichever template you use, you should save your final image in JPD format. The reason why is detailed in the blog post below.
Why Is There Empty Space Around My Art?
I had a issue with uploading my artwork to sell on Threadless, and reached out to their customer support service. What I learned may be known to some of people, but it was new to me, and I want to share it with you so your uploads will look their best!
I hope this template will be helpful for your print on demand career. If there are other items you would like templates for, leave a comment below!
