2019-11-01 -- TeePublic Product Scaling

We used to use TeePublic's default scaling for most products. Now we draw scaling instructions from the blueprint for all products except apparel. Apparel still seems to work best with TP's default positioning.

2019-10-20 -- TeePublic Is Running Full Speed

Your full quota should publish to TeePublic each day. Make sure your tag orders are as intended (especially the first tag for each design) and doublecheck the sizing for phone cases and pillows in your blueprints!

2019-10-05 -- TeePublic!

You can now publish to TeePublic with OrbitKit. Be sure to read the documentation.

2019-09-11 -- Text Templates for Designs and Blueprints

You can now put special tokens in your design titles & descriptions (eg {{title}}, {{tag0}}) and also create special templates for everything published with particular blueprints. Documentation is here.

2019-07-31 -- Multiple Sides for Printful

OrbitKit now handles blueprints with multiple print sides. See the documentation for how this works.

2019-07-22 -- New Video on Venues, Blueprints, and Exhibits

Struggling to understand OrbitKit's publishing model? Check out this new video.

2019-07-17 -- International Text In CSV Import/Export

CSV export and import now includes all languages, not just English.

2019-07-05 -- Redbubble Errors Fixed

Redbubble added a few new product types, which prevented you from creating new blueprints at OrbitKit. This has been fixed.

2019-06-21 -- Queue Position

You can now see WAITING exhibits' queue positions on the Exhibits page. Note that each platform has a separate queue, so you will see #1 several times (once for each platform).

2019-06-17 -- Sorting Designs & Exhibits

You can now sort the designs and exhibits listing pages.

2019-06-13 -- 'Mature' Designs

You can now flag designs as 'mature', which will change their publishing behavior on some POD platforms. More documentation here.

2019-06-06 -- Manager Roles

You can now restrict access of your Organization's users (eg VAs) by assigning them roles. More documentation here.

2019-05-30 -- Reauthenticate Printful with Airlock

Due to a change in Printful's auth system, you must re-authenticate your Printful venues using the Airlock chrome extension (just like Redbubble). You will need v1.0.10 or later of Airlock (Google should update you automatically).

2019-05-25 -- Printful Update

Printful integration is much improved. Mugs and two-layer items work, positioning is better. If you find any other issues, reach out.

2019-04-29 -- Printful Integration

You can publish to Printful stores. This is new and still somewhat experimental - please read the documentation carefully. P.S. Printify is coming soon too!

2019-04-17 -- Import From Redbubble

In addition to Spreadshirt, we can now import your library directly from Redbubble. Details on the Import/Export page.

2019-04-16 -- Reauthenticate Teespring with Airlock

Due to some changes at Teespring, you must reconnect your Teespring venues using the Airlock chrome extension (just like Redbubble). Sorry for the inconvenience!

2019-04-16 -- CafePress Reauthentication

CafePress just changed everyone's passwords. You'll need to create a new password at cafepress.com (log out, then log in again) and reauthenticate your CafePress venues. Then you can unpause them.

2019-04-03 -- Manually Edit Exhibits

OrbitKit now lets you mark exhibits to prevent their product assortment, colors, pricing, and positioning from being overwritten during an OrbitKit resync. More details here.

2019-03-28 -- Import From Spreadshirt

OrbitKit can now import your existing design library directly from Spreadshirt. Check out the Import/Export page for details. Coming soon: Redbubble!

2019-03-19 -- Teespring Rate Limiting

Teespring is applying low rate limits to some accounts (probably based on trust score). If you hit the limit, you may see a small warning timer on your OrbitKit venue while it cools off.

2019-03-12 -- Update to Redbubble Positioning

We found an issue with artwork positioning too high on some Redbubble products. We have corrected that issue and are re-synchronizing the affected exhibits. This may take 1-2 days.

2019-03-08 -- New Redbubble & CafePress Positioning

The Redbubble positioning logic is now much smarter -- we now automatically center artwork on square products, even if your images contain asymmetric transparent borders. CafePress got an IQ boost too - consider resynchronizing your RB and CafePress exhibits.

2019-03-04 -- Referrals: 20% Revenue Share!

We have added 20% recurring revenue to our referral program - and folks who sign up with your offer code get a special discount. If you like OrbitKit, let people know! Read the program details.

2019-02-05 -- Developer API

We've published the beginnings of a developer API. If you'd like to automate OrbitKit, check out the developer documentation.

2019-01-30 -- Design By Humans!

You can now publish your designs to Design By Humans. Integration notes are here. As usual with new integrations, keep an eye out for anything amiss.

2018-12-20 -- CafePress Sizing/Positioning

We rewrote the sizing & positioning logic for CafePress. If you didn't like how designs were positioned before, you can re-sync your exhibits and OrbitKit will reposition the artwork.

2018-12-14 -- Bulk Edit Enhancements

You can now use the bulk edit tool to change metadata for languages other than English. You can also now set the title of designs.

2018-12-06 -- Internationalized Text!

You can optionally specify the title, description, and tags for your designs in German, French, and Spanish. These will be published to platforms that support multiple languages. See the docs for more.

2018-12-06 -- Replace Artwork

You can now replace the artwork image of designs. This can be useful if you need to upscale an image. This will not sync to already-published exhibits, but you can destroy/recreate those exhibits.

2018-11-25 -- Society6!

You can now publish your designs to Society6. Integration notes are here. It's beta, so let us know if anything seems amiss.

2018-11-15 -- Referral Program!

Refer your friends to OrbitKit and get free service! We'll automatically credit you with the first month's payment of anyone you refer. See this link (or your Settings page) for details.

2018-11-14 -- Pause / Unpause Exhibits

You can now pause exhibits (in bulk or individually). Paused exhibits will not be published (if they were WAITING) or synchronized (if they were READY). OrbitKit leaves them alone.

2018-11-06 -- Zazzle Paused

Zazzle says it's going to be weeks before they can fix the integration. We're looking into workarounds but for now we're stuck. We really feel bad about this so we're also working overtime on a new integration that has been frequently requested...

2018-11-01 -- Lower Price Tier

To accommodate folks with smaller design libraries, we've added a $35/mo tier that publishes 5 designs/platform/day. Reach out in the in-app chat if you'd like to switch!

2018-10-29 -- New Teespring For Everyone

We have enabled the new launcher for everyone. The queues are running a little behind but they'll catch up over the next couple days. If your account had CAPTCHA problems with Teespring in the past, now is the time to try again!

2018-10-23 -- New Exhibit States

We simplified the states of an exhibit and exposed the UPDATING state when a published exhibit is re-syncing. The happy path state diagram now goes WAITING -> PUBLISHING -> READY -> UPDATING -> READY.

2018-10-22 -- Pausing/Unpausing Venues

You can pause and unpause your own venues on the venue detail page. This will stop related exhibits going from WAITING to PUBLISHING.

2018-10-22 -- Image Resolution

OrbitKit displays the pixel resolution of design images on the design detail page and the designs list view.

2018-10-08 -- Spreadshirt Fixed

The "Duplicated content" error that affected a small percentage of Spreadshirt exhibits has been fixed. We are slowly republishing any that were BROKEN due to this error; you don't need to do anything.

2018-10-06 -- Better Archetypes UX

We condensed the archetypes listing page so it's easier to see at a glance. You have the option of picking archetypes from the blueprint edit page.

2018-09-29 -- Archetypes

This is the biggest change to OrbitKit we have made since launch! Please watch the video introduction.

2018-09-19 -- New Exhibits Actions

New bulk actions on Exhibits page: "Re-synchronize these" and "Replace blueprint".

2018-09-18 -- Checkboxes for Exhibits

You can select individual exhibits for actions on the Exhibits page. Works exactly the same way the Designs page works!

2018-09-13 -- Private notes

You can attach notes to designs for your own private bookkeeping purposes. This data is not sent to the PODs.

2018-09-12 -- Export, then import

We've completely revised the Import/Export process. You can now export all of your design metadata, bulk edit it in a spreadsheet, and upload it back into OrbitKit. This also allows you to make backups of your metadata.

2018-09-06 -- Twice the Spreadshirt!

We have split Spreadshirt into two separate platforms, North America and Europe. This means each gets a full quota of exhibits!

2018-09-05 -- Delete designs

You can now delete designs in bulk from the floating menu on the Designs page.

2018-08-30 -- Checkboxes!

You can select just a couple designs at a time for bulk operations. By default everything that matches the search is selected; if you manually check some designs, only they will be selected.

2018-08-26 -- New search help

Try the little help icon to the right of the search bar on the Designs and Exhibits pages. It will help you formulate queries such as searching by blueprint or by exhibit state.

2018-08-23 -- New exhibits page

Check out the new Exhibits page (or just click on one of the now-hotlinked numbers in the Exhibit Statistics card below). You can select exhibits by searching and move them to the front of the WAITING queue, re-enqueue BROKEN exhibits, shuffle priorities, and delete in bulk.

2018-07-07 -- Zazzle is now available!

This integration is more complicated than most, so
please read the guide carefully
