Online print-on-demand services?

I've set up a cafepress store to sell merchandise from my art, but the one thing they don't do is straightforward prints.

Could I please have some recommendations for online sites where I can upload my art scans and they do the rest (printing, shipping, payments, etc)?

Thanks,
Lindsay

Do you want to sell just prints or prints and other stuff using your art?

I'm open to both - Cafepress already cover T-shirts, mugs, hats and lots of other stuff, but if there's an all-in-one solution ... ?

Thanks,
Lindsay

Check out Zazzle.com. They offer beautiful color prints (multiple paper and canvas choices with optional framing/matting services) plus many of the specialty items offered at CP. In my experience, the items are of better quality than CP, too.

Re: Online print-on-demand services?

That was the one I was going to suggest if you wanted to do more than just prints. It's got better traffic than Cafe Press and a good reputation. It also rates top in the poll of consumers on my print on demand info site.

Red Bubble is the second favourite.

Cafe Press seems to be going downhill at the moment IMO.

Re: Online print-on-demand services?

Yes as others have mentioned more than once, Zazzle is one of the best print on demand services for selling your own art and it's got the best affiliate program for print on demand gifts too.

Cafepress was top dog, now Zazzle has took over as the market leader at the moment with it's impressive turn around time and commission rates, the more products you upload the more possible sales you could make, alhtough that is certainly down to how well you market your art online and offline!

I've been using ImageKind for years. Good quality prints, prompt shipping, and good customer service.
