Sorry to bring this back, but it is relevant - I hope.
Rich mentioned Cafe Press and I've spent a little time looking at it. Tony
, have you had good experience with them?
I've stocked shirts in the past and it ain't fun seeing thousands of dollars of stock just sit there. Then I run out of larges but have tons of mediums etc... But the stockless Cafe Press sounds pretty good. Of course their base fees are very high, but they do handle everything from start to finish.
I could open a shop and sell the shirt maybe $1 over cost. That would help with the increase in hosting costs and make Hatori happy. Heck, I'd buy Hatori a shirt if it would mean getting rid of that flashing image!
The other issue would be shirt designs. I'll have to think about it, but what if we opened it up for submissions. The winner(s) would get a cash prize and a free shirt or something. What would be fair? $50 $100. I guess it depends on how many winners there are. It looks like it is pretty easy to add designs and adding doesn't cost anything.
Something to think about. But I guess the move still needs to be first. I've had several 500s today...
