Hi folks,

from a recent discussion on the marketing list -

would someone volunteer setting up a
landing page, that would then link to 

and others as they become available? FWIW, trying to fight cafepress
currently to have a prototype shop there as well...

Hi Leif,

wonderful - having someone go&  setup a demo site was exactly what
was needed here, thanks for that!

Back in the day, we looked at both SpreadShirt and CafePress
( - reason for (at least) two
shop offerings was the sometimes prohibitive shipping cost/delay
between continents.

So if someone would volunteer to setup a demo shop with CafePress,
and share the feedback, that would be cool.

For the final, I'd propose that to not
resolve to one single shop, but to a landing page leading to
different offerings - if CafePress or something else proves viable.

I think having the page as the entry point of the shop and then point
to all the different sites that have LO merchandise would be the best
idea.  Having it sorted by regions where it is being shipped from, to
help save shipping costs, would be good as well.  People who live in
Europe then could have a selection of countries to choose from.
People in the USA could go by states.

Shipping costs are bad between Europe and the USA.  I sent a small
[size and weight] package to Malta and it cost me about $13 to ship,
when it could have shipped across the country for only $2 or less.

I know a company that has a minimum order of 4 pieces for either
embroidered or silkscreen items.  They have a good price.  The problem
for merchandise sites is the fact that they are printing 1-up items or
they have to keep a stock of them hoping to get more sales.

As for selections I would go with the following:
zip-up sweet with a hood.
polo-style shirt - for a more "business like" style for events workers
bags of several types including laptop ones
hats of several types
and any other items that people like to have their favorite product name on.

As for designs, well I like the mascot idea with saying, for the
"cute" market.  Then we need one that looks more professional for the
people who would rather use that type.
