Remember all those times you thought, “I should put that on a T-shirt”? CafePress not only lets you make the T-shirt for yourself, but enables you to set up shop and sell it.

CafePress rewards self-expression by allowing anyone to find or make merchandise that speaks to their interests and passions. Free online shops empower people to become e-commerce entrepreneurs with no risk or no overhead. You come up with the idea, choose what you’re selling it on and pick your retail price, and CafePress prints your product on-demand when your buyers order it. You make a profit every time something sells. CafePress also handles all the fulfillment, customer service, returns and the other hassles of merchandise that you probably don’t want to manage.

CafePress offers 150 customizable merchandise items, ranging from T-shirts and other apparel items to home decor, kid & baby merchandise and political items such as buttons & yard signs.

CafePress is the leader in User-generated content, with 6 million users and 150 million+ products (10 will get made while you read this). The CafePress Marketplace is an instantaneous and often colorful reflection of the public discourse.

In the unlikely event that you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can make it. And then you can sell it, should you choose, to anyone who shares your passion for [insert object of interest here].
