To Swag or Not to Swag: Tip to Brand Your Tchotchkes on a Shoestring

Written by Betty Liang


Continued from page 1
I wanted to create my own branded tchotchkes, someone had introduced me a vendor that could set up a store front for my branded products, managerepparttar inventory, fulfillment, returns/exchanges, payment and customer support all with no upfront costs. The best part was that there was no minimum when I had been used to buying into minimum quantity requirements of 500 units. The vendor is Cafepress (www.cafepress.com) a 6 year old start-up in Foster City that is backed by Sequoia Ventures. You can brand various items with your artwork to use as tchotchkes or set up an online store and sell your branded products. I didn't see any mini-mice or USB drives, but you can get started with your basic apparel, mugs and office accessories, to name a few. If you decide to sell your products, Cafepress mails you a monthly check with your earnings.

As I come across these types of resources and tools, I will continue to publish them to my small and medium business (SMB) community, SMBxchange, Inc. To share best practices, get your business featured onrepparttar 149190 site, and learn about new technologies, products and resources, join www.smbxchange.com
