CafePress Site O’ the Day

CafePress Site Directory

I’ve been getting almost daily email updates for a site worth plugging. It’s a CafePress dedicated blog that profiles up a site a day. Put together by the guys that do Tuesdayteez.com – who I believe are also behind Detour Designables. The CP blog isn’t much to look at itself, but features some nice CafePress shops. If anything it’s a great repository for samples of what can be done with the CafePress system in terms of layout and site design.

As for Tuesdayteez, it’s much easier on the eyes and a great concept, though it hasn’t been updated since November. Even on a weekly basis keeping stuff up-to-date is always harder than you think.

Curiosity I guess. Got a tip on this shop called LittlemenTees. And well, they’re just peculiar. Tons of t-shirts themed around little figures holding up words. In this case Merry Christmas. Other tees include a strange mix of phrases from Poker to Beer and Jesus to Fishing. I’m not actually sure what to make of them, so I’ll leave it up to. Check out Littlemen Tees at CafePress. One more tee after the jump.

Stumbled upon a good resource for t-shirt shop owners running on CafePress. Cafe Templates is a blog style site with a selection of tips and tricks to customize your store and maximize sales on CP. Although the name ‘Cafe Templates’ would imply they have CafePress store templates, I could only find one – and it wasn’t anything to write home about. But the tips are useful and worth browsing.
