  • Cafepress.com - forum apparel?

    Who here sells forum member apparel from their sites ? Who do you use? How's it going? Any problems?

    Just setup my store at http://cafepress.animeboards.com Trying to do it locally via www.allabout.com.au, www.standout.com.au or www.promoshop.com.au and was wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences with this ?

      F150online set up shop with Cafepress a few months ago. The turnaround time on orders is excellent and so far they have paid us promptly. I have found the quality to be so-so...the printing faded about 70% on the "test" t-shirt I ordered. Overall (at this point) I would recommend them.

        you mean the shirt printing faded 70%? over how long a period? not sure but that's kinda worrying

          Yep, what began as solid black is now a faded grey...after the first wash! It has not faded much since that first wash.

          I just tried to take a digital pic to show you what I mean, but my camera overcompensated and the grey looked black!! (oh, and I did follow the care label instructions when I washed it the first time)

          If I can get a good pic, I will post it.

              Let's try this....(it appears a bit distorted, sorry, I draped it over a chair to take this pic)



              This is the large logo on the back of the shirt. It began life black (or in hex terms #000000), I would say it is now a #CCCCCC or thereabouts...

              Hope that helps. BTW, I would still recommend them. After having sold about 50 of these, nobody has complained about fading.

                  Just a small word to the wise, and also from an experienced laundry person...

                  Before you wash or even wear it (I know some of you can't wait to wash things first) for the first time, fill up your sink or laundry tub with hot water (I mean HOT) with a 1/4 cup of vinegar - doesn't matter what kind (apple vinegar works well), and let it soak all night long - nothing less than 6 hours.

                  And when you wash it, he shouldn't fade and the colors should bleed together.

                  Try it the next time you wash....

                  I do this when I get new clothes that have lots of colors and could easily bleed or fade.

                  Also... Tide detergent also works well in not fading clothes.

                  Just some tips for ya!

                            This is a timely topic. A few of my Members have been organizing the making and selling of OptiBoard polo shirts. One has even set up an online order form.

                            So far it looks like at least 30 of my Members are interested in purchasinf one or more shirts. I'll let you know how it goes.
