Know of a Good Merch Site??

Postby MichaelYakutis on Wed May 16, 2012 9:46 am

I plan on opening up a store at my site pretty soon and I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions for a good make-it-when-you-order-it merchandise site? Something like CafePress (but CafePress seems kinda pricy to me and their options still aren't great, mainly for shirts). I'd LOVE to find a site that has the capability to print graphic novels AND make other merch. I was initially planning to print my comic through ComixPress, but then people would have to place two separate orders if they wanted the buy the printed comic along with, say, a sticker. And pay shipping from two sites. Does anyone have any tips? I can't afford to purchase this stuff in bulk in advance and ship it out as it sells. I can't make that investment at the moment. I need a good site that can make the items as they are ordered without a lack in quality.

Thanks!

I can't say I know of any on-demand sites that do both books and merch. Zazzle does prints and calendars in addition to merch, but nothing on their site suggests they print books.

Thanks for the suggestion. Someone else had mentioned zazzle, so I will have to check it out.

Yeah, I like Zazzle a lot. For shirts, though, it's hard to beat Spreadshirt. I've really been impressed with their customer service. They mostly stick to clothes, though, so they don't do mugs, mousepads, etc.

I had bad experiences with CafePress early on, but that was like eight years ago and I'm sure they've changed a lot since then.
