CafePress has done something right, five times over.
Starting this week, the print-on-demand service has expanded its line one just one organic cotton sweatshop-free t-shirt from American Apparel, a unisex adult fitted t-shirt, by adding five more garments, each made sweatshop-free in the USA by American Apparel, each made with organic cotton. The new options [...]
For about six years now, as a part of our plan to eat food we have sold t-shirts with liberal, progressive and anti-war messages on them via the print-on-demand service CafePress. While CafePress is not perfect by a long stretch, we consider it a pretty good company to work with because it expands choice, not [...]
One of the interesting things about designing t-shirts is trying to figure out which ones will be popular and which won’t. Nope, I’m still not good those predictions. I was pretty sure my Man Plus Woman Equals Thingy would be a wildly popular t-shirt zinging the fundamentalists for their marriage equation, but nope, I haven’t [...]
Back in February, a representative of CafePress assured us in conversations that dark American Apparel shirts would be coming up for sale in the late summer. In the early fall, maybe more American Apparel organic shirts would be coming up too.
Uh huh. We’ve been hearing that line from CafePress for years now. Such [...]
First Freedom First, a non-profit organization powered by Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, got itself kicked off my priority list by inviting me to a “simulcast” protest event that ended up being the playing of a pre-recorded DVD.

I didn’t design this: someone named “eb” did. But I think it’s so cute I just had to share it with you:
And because it’s offered by Skreened, you know the shirt is made sweatshop-free.
For nearly two years now, we’ve been designing and selling sweatshop-free t-shirts through Skreened, a print-on-demand shop in Columbus, Ohio. All of the shirts come from American Apparel, which does vertically-integrated shirt production on the up-and-up in Los Angeles. That’s an ethical alternative to the t-shirts you see made in China or Indonesia, made using [...]
I just got off the phone with a representative of CafePress who informs me that (following up on plans it had announced last month) the print-on-demand company is now offering a new line of Junior Jersey T-Shirts, replacing an old line that was not made in the demonstrably sweatshop-free conditions that American Apparel maintans. The [...]
Some think that with the departure of George W. Bush and Karl Rove from the scene in January of 2009 we can rest easy. But that’s not the case. Our new president, Barack Obama, is not a saint. He is a human being subject to all the same pushes and pulls as the rest of [...]
