Previously, when artists uploaded an artwork to Redbubble, we used the same image for all of the clothing styles and the sticker style. Both worked best with a PNG with transparency, and stickers don’t offer any options for editing, so it seemed an obvious choice. But artists have long been asking for these to be split out. And we’ve focused on adding more clothing styles lately, so we decided now was a good time to separate the sticker upload. The problem was that in the uploader we wanted to show the artist a preview of what the sticker would look like after we add the white border to it, and we wanted to do this in the browser in HTML5

At Redbubble, we are dependent on artists uploading new designs and illustrations. Naturally, we’d like to make this as easy as possible. Previously, the process to do this was to download a template, position their work offline, upload, save, check the final product and repeat. For designs that need to be in a particular position this could be an extremely painful process! In order to lower the hurdle for new users and decrease the frustration level for our long-time artists, we introduced a new uploader which takes away the need for templates and allows for preview and positioning of the design on the product before upload.
