I *heart* ligers!
« on: March 19, 2003, 06:29:44 pm »
Yeah, I've opened another CafePress shop... so sue me. '<img'>
 
I was told a few years ago, by some of my artwork fans, that my stuff would look great on t-shirts... so here I am now, finally putting some of my stuff on t-shirts. Heheh. This shop features 'me' in a bit of a playful, kitschy fashion. The t-shirts boast "I *heart* ligers!" on the front of each, with a faint background of my lovely face. The backs of each t-shirt, sweatshirt, and jersey prominently feature the first self-portrait I had painted. Looks pretty good, if you ask me. '<img'>
Want the link? Well, here it is...

Buy stuff! '<img'>

You're selling I *heart* ligers thongs?  An, er... interesting choice of merchandise, there.  I do quite like the T-shirt on there - works out at about £14 for me.  But that doesn't include shipping, and all that, I guess.  I've never bought anything from CafePress before, so I don't really have any idea how to work it, etc.

Anyway, I wish you luck with your new store, and hope you have amny customers.

Ariela requested that I add a thong to the shop. I'm not going to complain. '<img'>
 
And thanks. I'm hoping this shop makes me a bit of extra cash, at least. That'd be a good thing. ':cool:'

That's quite a good offer, isn't it.  That means the sweatshirt would now be about £16.50 which is pretty decent.  I can't seem to work out how Cafeshops work, though.  I'm not really one for buying off the Internet, as I said before, so forgive my stupidity.  Do you know how much stuff you've sold so far, Benjamin?  I bet the thongs have been selling brilliantly, right..?

I've sold a few things so far, but it hasn't amounted to a whole lot yet. It's been less than a week for that shop, anyways... and I've got some other friends wanting to buy stuff soonish, too. '<img'>
I've sold one thong already, among the three items total that have sold there. '<img'>
As for figuring out how to use the service, they have some documents on their site that you can read that describe various things. The connections into their payment servers and such are all done securely, of course.

Check out...

What's this?  No *ROAR!* thongs?  Ah, well - I'll just have to do without, I guess.  It is a nice design you have for the merchandise, and with the current sale on at CafeShops/CafePress, it makes it more realistic to buy the things.  I shall look into how to purchase things from the site.

Well, if you want to wear girls' underwear, I can set up a thong for ya. '<img'>
I marked up the shirts with my artwork on them a bit extra since, well... it's got detailed artwork on them. The stuff in my furry.ca shops is cheaper since it's just a logo on the shirt, rather than the detailed, time-consuming artwork. '<img'>
 
If you can purchase something sometime, that'd be great. Thanks muchly. '<img'>

I've added in a calendar print to each of my shops, except for the furry.ca stuff. It's a one piece poster style poster.
Check 'em out and please feel free to pick one up. '<img'>

I've gotten a sale from the *ROAR!* shop now... which is good to see. '<img'>
I'm not boasting, I'm just glad to see my shops getting a bit of business. Some of my artist friends have said that they don't get sales at all. Hrrf. ':dead:'

I've added in some new tank tops to both of my shops here. They're perfect for the hot summer weather, of course... or if you're one to want to show off some.
One question though...
Will the onlookers be gawking at you or the artwork on the shirts? '<img'>

Quick note...
I've got these shops shut down until I can find an online shirt shop that's got more respectful policies for it's own contributors.
We'll see how things go... ':p'
