    Hey girls and guys...
    Having recently been honoured enough to be featured on the main Warren Ellis.com site with a link to my store on cafe press for my ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE PREPARED APPAREL line on cafepress.com, and Bering overwhelmed by the quick response and sales generated by the link... I got to thinking...

    Having been a lurked and poster on here for a few years, I've seen the IEU store Warren and Ariana set up and the awesome selection of products they have Designed, I was inspired to do something myself... But I can't be the only one on here...
    So, question is... How many others on the board are cafepress users and store-runners? I've set this up to share links and shirts and hopefully pump up each others sales and get each others shirts out there in the world!

    Here's my link:


    post yours, and let's share the wealth, and post pictures of each others shirts and items on here for everyone else to see and share...

    Can't wait to see some of your designs...

    ps: warren? If this should be somewhere else please advise and I'll move it. Thanks!

    Cafepress isn't the only option these days - different POD companies do better on different products, so you might want to experiment a bit. For T-shirts I really recommend Printfection because their quality is pretty much the best. You need to rely more on your own marketing to drive sales there, though.

    I have a few Cafepress stores but for the most part I sell through my own sites, integrating their products with a third party script. You can see a lot of my CP stuff here: Celtic Art & Retro-Futuristic Design.

    I opened my little shop to create a book of my grandmother's poetry. I ended up putting all sorts of things up there.

    I've got one! Got two purchases and still it's not enough to take out the money! Bah! But still, zombie t-shirt and evil villain mugs!

    No cafepress, but I do still have a Zazzle store that I'd put together ages ago, for a concept organization- the League of Extraordinary Bastards.

    I use a few POD guys. Or rather, I have a few, since I can never get the Wordpress plugins for them to situate themselves in my pages functionally. Same images printed on different merch:

    I love these threads and ended up buying most of my Christmas gifts last year from the etsy thread- so thanks for starting this

    @oldhat: that mug is genius. I need to find a way of getting it intact over from Canadia for, and this is my main objection to POD mugs, less postage than the cost of the mug.

    Is a link to my hand-made t-shirt stall breaking the thread?
