Like it have been said above both of Spreadshirts and Teespring offer similar products and services. Both of them are founded in different countries and region, but now they are competitors trying to be better from each other. Teespring offer a lower base price, so their product can be more affordable to purchase, while at the down side, they required a campaign goal. If the goal is not reached, then your shirt will not be produced. At the other side, Spreadshirt does not required a campaign goal, your shirt will be produced when the customer order it, while at the down side Spreadshirt offer a higher base price. In our opinion from the designer side, it is better to choose Spreadshirt since you will not have a risk of losing your time and money if somehow your goal is not reached. You will still get revenue from how many products you can sell.
