UCL Centre for Digital Humanities




UCLDH has an online shop selling UCLDH-branded items ranging from from apparel and mugs to bags and assorted accessories.

Here's how it works: the site provides the un-printed stuff, eg apparel, we provide the artwork, they print and ship on demand. Applying the artwork to new stuff requires a login, which Melissa has.

When creating new stuff, the default is set for the eventual buyers to customise the colour combinations to their liking. So far, colour-customisation for buyers has consistently been turned off. Picking a colour-combo involves setting two logo colours against the background colour of a product: Rudolf's preference has been to do this according to the logo guide [PDF] he drew up and therefore to bar the customers from tweaking the colours.

The shirts are sold at the base rate charged by Spreadshirt. It's possible to add a margin to the base rate and collect the money for every item sold. It's been suggested that Rudolf should add that margin, which he has never done.

Note: next time the holiday season rolls around, it might be a good idea to remind the present-buying public of the shop's existence.
