It appears that with the CafePress storefront[s] that MAIL has, there's no easy way for potential buyers to request specific items. While I'm doing some behind the scenes stuff getting ready for a new design contest, I'd like to ask for suggestions of what types of items people would actually like to purchase. Since the current storefronts are largely inactive, I'm planning on completely starting over once we get new designs to print. With that, I think it would be good for us to get user requests for styles and colors.

What You (yes, you!) can help with here:
Take a look at the "Design Your Own" page that shows the possible items from cafepress. Look through, and drop a post in this thread with the style. Of course the color scheme of whatever designs we end up using will influence the final item colors, but this is for general "market research" if you will.

To start off, I'll list what has already been requested and what I'm thinking of adding:
I'll update this list as more posts come in.

  • Dark t-shirts/long sleeve shirts
  • Hoodies (do people like pullover or zip better?)
  • Polos
  • Mugs
  • Car magnets/bumper stickers

I think you already have the top-seller ^^ (although I believe in germany car-magnets are forbidden to use on the autobahn, don't know about other countrys)
  • mousepad (it seems they only have those fluffy things, but no laser-mousepads?)
  • journal
  • poster (depending on design)
  • keychain (kinda great for modifing ^^)

I thought about the massengers bag, too, but I couldn't change the color of the bag... I mean, I like yellow as a color, but I don't want it as a bag. Is there a way to change the color of the item itself?
I like the idea of a beer stein ^^

I'm all for the dark colored long sleeve t-shirts! Also, a tote bag or mssgr bag would be cool. Then one could use it to tote around their mailling supplies....or at least a project's worth. Coif LoL

Lorraine, you must model the M.A.I.L. undies...

Somehow I knew that would be your response. However, you WERE the one to request the undies. Wink

In no particular order:

  • Pullover Hoodie
  • Pajamas
  • Drinking Glass (if it's a pint glass)
  • Apron
  • Underwear
  • Bumper Sticker
  • Coaster


I didn't see it, but would a window decal be an option?

@Jax: No, I won't model the undies either.

You know, I always WANTED parachute pants but my parents wouldn't get them for me. I DID however have a pair of pants that was reminiscent of Jem...if you remember that cartoon. Very Happy
