Default Best online customisable Tshirt printer for Australia

Hi,

Would like to find out if there is anyone in Australia offering a similar service to Zazzle or Cafepress.

We expect to sell about 1,000 tshirts a year at least, but need print on demand / short runs and we are really bad at fulfilment.

Just started with a cafepress site, but noticed that a AUD 34.99 T-shirt is 32.00 USD which is , #0 AUD when converted back, so they are obviously ripping aussie customers off. Their website layout and options aren't as good as Zazzle, but Zazzle product is a lot more expensive.

Is there a better solution? Someone that offers decent T-Shirts and other apparel/custom printed goodies, along with not ripping Aussie customers off and a good web store setup?

Cheers,

James

That's a pretty bold statement. I don't think CafePress is ripping anyone off.

You may not like their pricing, but claiming a company is ripping people off is something totally different.

So purchasing in AUD is $34. Purchasing in USD is 31.49, which converts to $29.33 AUD, so there is a 4.67 discrepancy in price between AUD and USD, which is a 13.4% difference. For a company which offers 5 different currencies, you would have thought that they would have made a bit of a better effort to cover forex fluctations. $34 in AUD is $36.50 in USD, yet US customers can buy it for $31.49, again a 15.8% discrepancy.

There is always a cost in converting Forex, but nearly 16%?

Anyway, whether they are ripping people of, is there a better solution? Is there an Aussie company that offers a comparable solution?

Cheers,

James

Vista print. Search DTG or direct to garment printers there are a couple.

But short run (DTG) Printing like what you are saying here in OZ will set you back around the 30 dollar mark more for darks.

DTG printing company can service you about this. Very short run. If you like you can consider from oversea to make your business.
