    I have a store setup with CafePress. I love how they offer it for free and allow you to customize things so. I found they shipped the goods in a timely fashion and the quality, as previously discussed, was so-so. Here's mine: http://www.cafepress.com/scgoods

    my cafepress experience

    i set myself up a little shop with them about a month ago. i ordered some stuff from my own shop and it got here promptly. I am most fond of the long-sleeved white shirt. I found that my black and white designs did much better than the color ones, as the color came out way too dark. I would recommend submitting files that look too light for the computer screen if you have a complex color image you want rendered.

    here's my link:

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
    thanks this is much appreciated.. i'd hate to see my members fork out that money to have a faded shirt so quickly

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