The recent announcement of Gnomedex 5.0 reminded me of a funny story from last year’s Gnomedex. See, I was planning to give away FeedDemon and TopStyle T-shirts at the event, but I was having problems with a local T-shirt printing company. To make sure I’d have them in time, I ended up buying a bunch of shirts through my CafePress store instead.
A couple of days later a box from CafePress arrived, and I figured I’d better check the shirts just in case there were any problems. So I opened the box and found…
…a few dozen anti-Bush T-shirts.
No FeedDemon shirts. No TopStyle shirts. Just a whole bunch of shirts spouting anti-Bush slogans.
Now, despite the fact that the anti-Bush shirts were worded more colorfully than mine, I was still really disappointed. To their credit, CafePress sorted out the problem very quickly, but unfortunately not quick enough – I ended up getting on the plane without the shirts, and upon calling my wife when I landed I discovered that FedEx delivered the correct shirts about an hour after I left (arghhh!).

Haha! Imagine an Anti-Bush demonstration with all the people wearing FeedDemon T-Shirts.
The marketing effect would be higher than ever :-D
I have just started using this alternative to CafePress and I am very impressed. They offer more variety in shirts and colors. They also will convert your vector art for designs. Check it out
Thanks for the tip, Chris – I’ll take a look at Spreadshirt.com.
