Sounds kind of official, doesn’t it? Well, it sort of is. As most of you know, I’ve been on a constant search for a supplier of wholesale t-shirts, coffee mugs, pens…well, most anything that sounds ‘fun’ and can be used as a promotional item. Since my brain is stuck in the 80’s and today’s prices just seem outrageous, I’ve only ordered what you might call samples. A few shirts here and there. A couple dozen coffee cups. A few custom made pens, notebooks, etc. Everything has either fallen short of what I was looking for or was too cost prohibitive.
Enter cafepress. A friend turned me on to them and while they may not be the end-all answer I was searching for, they create on demand AND they offer shirt sizes above and beyond what most other online shirt places offer. Yes, I can even find some in MY size. I’ve ordered a couple of t-shirts and a couple of travel mugs just to check out the quality. They offer discount codes at checkout and it makes it just a wee bit more affordable.
I still intend to keep my eyes open for better deals so that I can offer them to my readers as either prizes or as a ‘thank you’ for all that they do to help keep my name in front of new readers. Until something more solid comes along though, this sounded like a good idea. I know that I’ve gotten emails and PMs from people asking if items like this were available. Until now, they simply weren’t…and while this might not be my preferred way to go, at least it gives readers a chance to pick up their style of clothing or gift items with the logo they love emblazoned across the front of it.
So, just in time for the holidays (I’ve always hated it when people said that…) here’s the link to the new Monster Squad Emporium!
