Twitch has had a long standing partnership with Teespring to provide the community with broadcaster apparel. Unfortunately the partnership is coming to an end on Monday July 24, 2017. This means you will no longer be able to have the Twitch branding on the sleeve of the t-shirt and hoodie options.
If you currently have a Teespring account, it isn’t going away. You can still receive the full benefits of Teespring including higher profit margins and other product options. For full detailed information, you can read their blog article about the split here.
If we were to guess, we’d suspect Twitch will soon announce a merchandise program through Amazon. With Twitch/Amazon Prime taking off the way it did and as that relationship grows deeper, it only makes sense to use that avenue. I’m sure we’ll see Twitch branding on broadcaster apparel again in the near future
For those who want to explore other production options, we put together a few that have been predominant in the live-streaming industry.
