Cafepress shirts look like iron on transfers you could make at home. Horrible quality at a high price.

Low quality end product. They do digital prints, if I recall correctly.

Yea, I just finished reading a slew of bad reviews about Cafepress. Everything from poor customer service to inconstant/shitty prints was mentioned. Such a bummer that they don't do legit work. The products they offer are quite extensive (who WOULDN'T want to be able to sell thongs with their band's/act's logo on them wink )

im with sander, spreadshirt is the way to go.

Conversely, I'm really liking Spreadshirt. The layout of site is great, has good reviews in terms of the quality of the product, and the products are more affordable than cafepress (surprisingly). Plus, everything is handmade which is nice.

Everyone on this forum wrote:

Just do it yourself.

Ideally, I would like to be able to go DIY and keep a good chunk of the profit. However I'm afraid I just wouldn't be able to invest the time into doing that effectively at the moment plus, again, scratch to start it up is tight around these parts.

Sander von Focus wrote:

a combination might be a good idea. Like run of the mill shirts from spreadshirt, and 'limited editions' with homemade silkscreen.

This will probably the route I'd be shooting for. I'll keep you guys posted on my experiences with spreadshirt. If you see another post titled sad things probably didn't go too hot.

Thanks for the input guys! My main thing was to find a site that would produce merch with our custom artwork, sell, and ship all with no upfront fees (rather, we'd just get a cut of the earnings ). Cafepress seems to do that but my main concern was the quality of the product vs. what people would be paying (some t-shirts were running about 30 bucks and hoodies for 50(!?) ). Their site also kind of has a cheesy and ameturish layout that's a bit unsettling. Big Cartel seems like they'd only help sell but not produce (I lack the fundulations to buy blank t-shirts and pay someone to make them for me) although I may use them for more custom/less generic items in the future. Society6 and Spreadshirt look legit; I'm going to research those two a little more.

At the same time, if anyone has used or bought something from cafepress recently let me know what your thoughts are! big_smile

I'm thinking of using this site for selling merch online (primarily t-shirts). Thoughts? Experiences? Alternatives? DISCUSS!

Thanks smile
