SPOD’s Best Sellers - Spring/Summer 2020

Sometimes the best way to plan for the future is to look to the past. To help you create the best design combinations for 2021, we've done a little time travel to 2020. 

During the spring and summer seasons warm weather products, like short-sleeved T-Shirts, are always popular. Last year, we saw just that. T-shirts were the most-shopped item in all apparel categories. Hoodies and sweatshirts were a close second though, as they’re versatile and ideal for cool nights by the campfire.

You'll find the top 5 best sellers per category, as well as a bonus top-selling colours. These shades can indicate which hues might be seasonally popular again this year. You can compare the top colours here with what you offer and curate your product range accordingly.

Last year, the Spreadshirt Collection was one of the most consistent brands across all categories. You’ll note at least one product from our in-house range is featured in each category. We’re really proud of the quality of our products, and humbled by the fact that your customers like them too!

Regardless of the season, coffee mugs are always a hit. Three different mug varieties were popular last year, and it’s likely that will be the case again this year too. For obvious reasons, face masks were another hot item last summer. In this category, the most popular item was the coffee mug from Best Sub.
