Okay, I’m with a group that has been using Cafe Press for a while . . . we’re not too happy with the shirts, not very good quality, high prices for what you get.
I see there’s a few more companies out there doing this sort of thing so it’s not just Cafe Press . . . have any of you used these other services? What did you like better? What worked for you, what didn’t work so well?
Optimally we’d probably want a storefront like we’ve had – but don’t want to pay more for it. (The group is way too small and sales are not sufficient to support going to real-life vendors – we also don’t want to tie up money in merchandise we might get stuck with.)
Don’t want to charge more money unless we get vastly better merchandise that would justify it – though the shirts are high enough now, I think. Might want to add some other items like coffee mugs, shot glasses, mouse pads, little novelty things like that. We’ve sold some other things over the years ranging from thongs to messenger bags but we’re not fixed on anything solid right now. What’s been good for you?
I’d appreciate hearing your real-life stories – success stories, I hope!
