The history of CafePress
After spending several hours on promotion again today I read up on the history of CafePress and found these interesting facts.
CafePress.com is an online marketplace that offers sellers complete e-commerce services to independently create and sell a wide variety of products, and offers buyers unique merchandise across virtually every topic. Launched in 1999, CafePress.com has empowered individuals, organizations and businesses to create, buy and sell customized merchandise online using the company's unique print-on-demand and e-commerce services. Today, CafePress.com is a growing network of over 2 million members who have unleashed their creativity to transform their artwork and ideas into unique gifts and new revenue streams.
Our members have created over 22 million designs on 80 customizable products ranging from apparel, home and office accessories to music and data CDs and books to prints, posters and cards. Roughly 25,000 new products are added every single day!
I am constantly appreciative of the efficient touches they’ve built into our site: from size charts and "email this product to a friend", to information about the materials; things I wouldn’t have thought to add. And all I have to do is create a design and then I can pull up every product to see how the design will look on them. Considering the company is only 7 years old and they have so many shopkeepers they do a tremendous job! Check them out here. http://www.cafepress.com/?pid=4370506
