Here’s how it works:

How To Describe and Tag Your Designs 

It’s ridiculously important to properly name, tag, and describe your designs thoroughly and accurately when publishing designs to your shops on Skreened.

Proper keywords in design descriptions as well as tags ensure people can find your designs when searching Skreened, or using other search engines.

Be sure to use proper keywords in the:

  • Title - This should hook the viewer into wanting to look at your design. It might be descriptive or funny, and the shorter the better. (Title FAIL: Avoid referencing your default shirt style or color, as your design can be placed on any customizable item on the Skreened site unless you specify otherwise.)
  • Tags – You are allowed 5 tags for your designs, so make them count! These should be words you might not use in the title or description, but might help people find your design. (Tag FAIL - Using unrelated words, or not separating tags with a comma and a space.)
  • Description - Every word in your description acts as a tag of sorts. It helps people find your design. That’s why it’s so important for the description to be complete and specific. (Description FAIL - nothing there. . . !)

Just think, if you were searching for your design on Google, what words would you enter in that search bar? The Specific is Terrific – and those are words to use while tagging and describing your designs.

Below are 2 links to examples of good tagging and descriptions:

Astronaut Cat by Lucius
Description:  Boldly going where no cat has gone before. Join him in his adventure to outer space with this t-shirt.
Tags:  cat, space, astronaut, funny, moon

Statue of Liberal Dosage by kBilltv
Description:  The Statue of Liberty with that spiky business up top turned in the direction of a Mohawk. Color graphic on t-shirts, hoodies, bags, gifts.
Tags:  statue of liberty, mohawk, punk, rock, metal
