Brethren "stuff" is becoming available....I got more stuff loaded today and have a bunch more I have on my screen that i am uploading artwork for. the store is open, but not complete.

Just to be up front about it.. the prices in cafepress are (IMO) high, but i have been told the quality is excellent. Some of the stuff is the base price and some things have 50 cents or ONE dollar built into it. No one here is gonna get rich. The reason i did that is to maybe cover the online shops own cost of a premium shop(as opposed to basic/free) which costs 60$ a year. The premium shop allows us to have more than one style of an individual item.. Whats that mean? It means, right now, A basic shop allows a tee shirt to have one type of graphic and thats it. The premium shop will allow multiple styles of the same item, a tee shirt style, with different graphics, or graphic on front only, or front and back, etc....

I am open for suggestions for any stylizing members may want. so if you think of something you feel we can add, post it and we'll see the consensus.

Whats there now..... WWW.CAFEPRESS.COM/BBQBRETHREN (http://www.cafepress.com/BBQBRETHREN)

IT WILL BE ACTIVLY INCREASING OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

PS...
I put something real special out there for Brian under "Intimate apparel". :mrgreen:

Right now i have it set to "Direct Printing". Here are the comparisons given by Cafepress.

Our current tee shirts use heat transfers and what i dont like about it is you can see the square a little bit where the transfer material is.

You can change the option as to which method you want when u place the order.

I am going to order one of each type of shirt for myslef to see what they look like......and a beer mug... and a clock.. and a coaster.... and a thong..

I am open to advice on which to use by default.. So if anyone has first hand experience.. speak up.

CafePress allows its Shopkeepers to choose which printing methods to offer with their designs, or allows the customers to pick which option best suits them. Direct Printing (https://www.cafepress.com/content/help/html/printing_popup.html#1) and Heat Transfer (https://www.cafepress.com/content/help/html/printing_popup.html#2) each have distinct benefits that you will want to consider. Please note: Sometimes, CafePress only offers one printing style on certain apparel items.

Direct Printing

With Direct Printing, we print direct-to-fabric with no transfers. The result is a matte image that moves with the garment because the ink is actually embedded in the fabric for ultimate wearable comfort. After a few washes, you will notice the great durability of Direct Printing. That means greater image staying power.

The benefits of Direct Printing

Great washability - no fading
No feel of ink on the fabric (the ink is in the fabric)
No cracking
No transfer lines
Things to keep in mind with Direct Printing

Colors are not as vibrant as Heat Transfer
top (https://www.cafepress.com/content/help/html/printing_popup.html#top)



Heat Transfer

Heat Transfer is as durable as screen-printing, but offers more detail. Heat Transfer uses heat to create a bond between the resin and the T-Shirt, locking the ink between the two layers. Heat Transfer has a slight plastic feel when first worn, however, this feel will diminish after washing.

The benefits of Heat Transfer

Vibrant colors - great for photos and detailed imagery
Good washability, fading happens over the first few washes
Things to keep in mind with Heat Transfer

May crack on ribbed garments
Has a slightly stiffer feel
Transfer outline may be visible with some designs
May yellow over time

nope, I ordered a Journal, Wall clock and a couple of tee shirts with different transfer types.


Another thing for all to know, and help to make the store what we want.. Almost ALL the shirts are double sided with "Fear the Pig" on the back.

If anyone thinks single sided is the way to go, or graphic on back only, or even another graphic or slogan, let me know.. Anythig to improve it. Most stuff is pretty generic with our logo on it. I upgraded to the premiere storefront and its fairly easy to do bulk updates to especially if the graphic exists allready.

Theres one more wave of stuff i will be putting up today. magnets, buttons, pads, and a few novelty items.

One of my favorite items..Dedicated to RBSNWNGS.

I've never been real crazy about Cafe Press. At least in the past they have looked real cheap (quality not price), but those were b&w. I have never seen color there before. I'll probably get a coffee mug and maybe a t-shirt. Will wait on feedback first on the t-shirts.

Ok, some orders were placed allready.!! Cool!! . I placed mine and found out 2 things.

orders of $50 gets free shipping, which saved 12 bucks. You have to put "freeship" in the coupon code.

also, after the order confirmation, I got another screen to send a 5$ coupon to 5 other members. i picked some at random of those that expressed interest in buying stuff, so watch your email, u may be getting a 5$ coupon from cafepress.

if anyone else gets that offer to send out the coupons.. take advantage of it and send the coupons to other brethren!! Cafepress's prices are up there and $5 may make it more affordable to some.

Also, Black tees are out there and designed, just not available yet. :-? They show up in our inventory, but not in the storefronts. Cafepress says that its new technolgy and they will be ready to go soon.

My experience, and just my opinion, is the heat transfer tee shirts do not breath as well as all the pores of the material have been sealed by the transfer sheet. This causes a sweaty belly, and I hate a sweaty belly, unless sex is involved........:rolleyes:

You've designed your Black T-Shirts, now they're ready to sell. That's right! Now in beta, Black is here for sale.

All new products go through beta while we fine-tune production. Black T-Shirts are our #1 most requested product and with December being our busiest month, we expect Black T-Shirts sales to go crazy. Should the demand exceed supply this holiday season, we may need to take it out-of-stock for a short period of time.

Somethign else i noticed.. Cafepress displays the stuff thats not ready as well as the stuff that i have completed. As i finish working on an item, i move it into one of the 2 catagories, MISC or TEE Shirts. If its not in either of these two bins(sections), its not complete, so i recommend only buying stuff in the 2 completed bins.

I just got the remainder of my order. The baseball jersey and Journal. I have to make some changes to the journal cause the graphic was a hair to high on the cover. The new journals are in black and look better, so if anyone has an order pending for journals, you may want to consider switching it to the new one. I will put up another white one later with the graphic adjusted also. The tee shirt graphics are very good. All in all, I'm real happy with everything I've gotten so far, 2 mugs, tile coasters, shirts, clock and the journal.

I also recieved another 5 dollar coupon when I recieved the final part of the order, so it seems they give these coupons out pretty freely.

I will be placing another order today or tomorrow,and as usual, after ordering they ask for 5 names to send coupons to, so if anyone plans on ordering anything, PM me and i will send you the coupon.

Apparently the FREESHIP code didn't work... I used it and my confirmation email said:

Items:
1 x 2 sided Ash Grey T-Shirt @ $16.99 = $16.99
1 x Large Mug @ $12.99 = $12.99
1 x Shirts Hooded Sweatshirt @ $28.49 = $28.49
==========================================
Subtotal: 58.47
Shipping: 6.00 <---------------------------------------------------
TOTAL: 64.47

Just a heads up Phil...

But thanks for this! What an awesome store! Can't wait for hats to be added!

HOLD OFF ON BLACK TEE SHIRT ORDERS!! it came to light when i contacted them about some issues with Noah's shirt.

I JUST RECIEVED THIS IN THE MAIL . The partial transperency they speak of, i believe is in the smoke where I made it opaque. I'll look into fixing it tomorrow. Thanks .


*******************************************

Hello Shopkeeper,

We wanted to inform you of a design-related issue that has surfaced with our Beta Release for Black T-shirts. The image(s) 9590811 you have uploaded has the issue as described below.

Partial Transparency: The Black T-shirt printing process does not support partial transparency. Because we use white ink in the printing process, a white layer of ink is placed across the entire area of partial transparency. This will produce a variety of undesirable effects including a "halo" in areas of partial transparency. Gradients within a partially transparent area will also appear as a "halo". Common filter effects such as drop shadows and glows usually create these partially transparent areas so try to avoid these when designing. You can learn more about this issue at http://www.cafepress.com/cp/learn/blackshirts (http://www.cafepress.com/cp/learn/blackshirts).



Once an update has been made please notify our Customer Service Department with the new image number within 2 business days of this e-mail receipt to process any pending orders related with this issue.

We are actively working to correct these problems and will update you regularly on our progress. Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding this matter.

Thank you for your patience.

Sincerely,

CafePress.com

As everyone can see from my previous post, theres is a problem with the black tee shirts. i am going to pull them from the store until I get the graphic fixed. i believe if i just remove the opaque form the smoke it will work, but that will bmake the smoke fairly solid, and not so "whispy". I havent seen a black tee shirt yet to see exactly what the problem is with the graphic. If anyonhas bought a black tee shirt, if possible can you take a digital (closeup as possible) photo and send it to me so I can verify what they are talking about.

thanks

Is the store still open?
Do they have hats yet?
Are the hats large (trucker) style or pin-head type?
Am I crazy for even asking?

Any word yet on decent hats? I sure would like to get one or two delivered before the 1st of March. KCBS judging class in Des Moines on the third & I thought it would be kinda nice to have a new hat for the occasion.

It looks like the hats are still MIA on the site. Did you ever find a new embroidery shop for them? My MIL has an embroidery business and I could see if she would make some up if needed.

Been thinking lately - with so many of us using magnets on the UDS, and of course the ability to stick them to all kinds of smokers, it sure would be neat to see some Brethren
magnets in the Store.

Phil mentioned the hats being a "go" in the future in the Brethren Banner thread. Things take time, and makers need to be set up, which can take some time. I'm patient, even though I really really REALLY want one. Til then, I'll be happy with My Brethren T-Shirt.
