Artists are afforded an outlet to sell their own design work through CafePress online shops. There are no upfront fees to open a storefront and you can offer as many designs as you wish. There are approximately 3 million virtual shops accessible through CafePress.com.com, each one having numerous designs to choose from.
Each design is marked up to ensure the artist will earn money when their artwork is selected for print on an order. Since CafePress.com does all of the printing and handles the payment and shipping, there is very little work for shop owners to do.
Even though CafePress.com has a good reputation, the competition has grown fierce. Many other websites have taken away from their customer base.
This has had a significant impact on the artists’ earnings and consequently they have not been making as much money as they once had. Another pitfall that artists are succumbed by is the number of other designers and shop owners on CafePress.com.
Most of the customers’ comments online were positive; they found the products to be of considerable value, the customer service to be helpful and the site easy to navigate. Many customers’ reviews also displayed their contentment with the speed and efficiency of their transaction. The products were printed and shipped in a very short amount of time.
Of course there were a few online complaints from customers who experienced issues with their products ordered through CafePress.com.
While some of them were not pleased with the image others were not happy with the quality of the product. Additionally, it seemed that customers outside the U.S. had encountered issues with shipping and delivery; this is somewhat common when shipping internationally.
