Cafepress was the first company to offer this kind of opportunity but now there are also some alternatives.

One of them is Printfection. When comparing to CafePress, Printficton has some benefits:
  • Free Premium Stores
  • Unlimited number of stores/products
  • Bulk Pricing
  • Over 150 colors for apparel products
It is also said that their quality of printwork is better.

They don't however offer an affiliate program like Cafe Press does and they offer less different products. They only pay-out by check and not through PayPal. If you are not in the US, you will pay costs when transferring the check into your bankaccount. They also don't have possibilities for publishing books or cd's. Just check them both out and then make your decision for which one is best for you. The other alternatives are no serious competitors to these two at the moment.
