Hi all,

I was inspired to get into the t-shirt thing, when websites started to pop up about the new pope. So I opened my own store at cafepress

http://www.cafepress.com/paparatzi

Then I thought about what other events were coming up and being a keen rugbyer myself the Lions rugby tour to New Zealand popped in my head

http://www.lionsnz.net

And then I found that it was so much fun I started some other shops,

http://www.ruggergirl.net to accompany my blog and
http://www.cafepress.com/cafegirl to create any current event shirt I feel like. Now it's featuring the runaway bride shirt.

However, I've found that due to the heavy postage charged by Cafepress, I'm getting many potential buyers from New Zealand who spend a lot of time in my shop but then don't buy when they see the postage fees.

Does anyone know of a free shirt site in Australia or Asia where I could host these designs?

Welcome to the T-Shirt Forums CafeGirl.

I've had several customers from Australia and NZ in my cafepress shop, so I wouldn't say the shipping costs are a factor if someone wants to buy your unique design.

You may want to try t-shirtzoo.com, although I can't vouch for their printing or service quality, I've only seen that focus on their ability to ship worldwide quickly and affordably.

Well, it's not like cafepress is known for thier quality :p
Actually, the CafePress printing quality is great for print on demand. They have made a lot of improvements from when they were just starting out years ago.

I haven't personally see any of thier products as of late (so I can't say from personal experience), but I know a lot of people that have said thier quality is pretty low, worse than a good quality heat transfer set up anyway.

I'm not sure when those people might have experienced the quality, but it is much better than a standard heat press transfer in many ways.

I have quite a few CafePress printed products and they are pretty darn good.

I prefer screen printed designs myself, but I have a CafePress store and I'm comfortable enough with the quality to offer it to my customers.

If the printing wasn't any good, I wouldn't offer it to my customers :)

I don't think this thread is about CafePress quality though, so to bring it back on topic, I'll just say that there are other alternatives out there, but you should research all the options.
