Another California-based company that launched a similar service to Cafepress in 2003 and has a substantial share ofrepparttar US market. Again pricing is only available in US Dollars. And while Zazzle's range of garment colours is stronger than Cafepress, printing on black or dark shirts is still not supported.

Zazzle does not charge a monthly fee but webmasters will find it rather more difficult to integrate their shop intorepparttar 131563 look and feel of their own site.



This one looks interesting. Spreadshirt was founded in Germany in 2002 and boasts over 60,000 partners across Europe, winningrepparttar 131564 Hewlett Packard Business Innovation Award in 2004. Unlike its American competitors, Spreadshirt caters for both European and US customers, using regional shipping companies and allowing webmasters to price products in Euros, Sterling, or US Dollars. Shops can also be automatically translated into eight languages.

Spreadshirt has also solvedrepparttar 131565 thorny "black shirt" issue, offering over 50 products in a full range of colours. However, it's probablyrepparttar 131566 different printing options that setsrepparttar 131567 service apart. In particular, Spreadshirt's "flock" printing creating a raised felt finish produces a result much more impressive than regular digital print.

Finally, hats off to Spreadshirt for managing to keep its branding onrepparttar 131568 product but still allow webmasters full control overrepparttar 131569 look and feel of their shops. Already a dominant force inrepparttar 131570 European market, Spreadshirt could be set to give Cafepress a run for their money inrepparttar 131571 US.

EShirt is another European company this time Italian-based - providing an almost-identical product range to Cafepress ie no dark shirts. Euro, US Dollar and Sterling pricing is available. However,repparttar 131572 only print option available is digital hot press printing notrepparttar 131573 longest lasting technique.

The most inconvenient aspect of EShirt's service is shop integration. You must register as a Tradedoubler affiliate before you can even apply for an EShirt shop. And even then, it is not possible to recreaterepparttar 131574 look and feel of your own site.
