The Reason For The Stagnation Of CafePress

CafePress should be doing extremely well at this time. This CafePress Review will shed light on their revenue growth and performance.

Election 2016 Gear at CafePress

An interesting an intense presidential campaign is currently taking place. Since we are in the final three months of this event, we can expect its buzz to increase on social media. Facebook users are eagerly awaiting the comments from the supporters on both sides. The discussions between friends and family members will be very interesting to say the least.

The printing specialist CafePress should be pulling in a ton of revenue at this time. Most of their clients – who are retail shop owners – should be taking advantage of this opportunity by selling politically-engaged merchandise with awesome designs and axioms.

Unfortunately, CafePress doesn’t seem to be benefiting from this event because their performance on the market is dismal.

The share price of CafePress plummeted on Tuesday after they reported poor earnings for the quarter. During this time, their share price increased by $0.10 and their earnings increased by 26%. This is not such a surprise since CafePress is one of several companies in the printing and merchandising business.

In the third quarter, they expect their share price to increase by 5 to 7 cents. This equates to an increase in revenue from $42.5 million to $45 million. Wall street analysts were expecting more from this company, especially during an election year.

These expectations are truly surprising because a presidential campaign should increase their profits by leaps and bounds.

The CEO admitted to having weak sales on their politically-focused merchandise. How could this possibly happen during an election year? Is CafePress failing in the marketing department or is their merchandise just too expensive for the average politically-engrossed consumer?

Maybe the business model isn’t as sustainable as one may think. Anyone can open up a CafePress storefront with ease. Unfortunately, it is a bit challenging to sell merchandise through the shop once it is set up. This may be the reason for the poor market performance and low sales during an election year.

Be A Fan Of The World Cup 2014 With CafePress

Election 2016 Gear at CafePress

The World Cup 2014 is here. Everyone has the World Cup fever. And what better way to show your love and support for your team than by putting them on a shirt?

CafePress is perfect for designing your own calendars, mugs, posters, and t-shirts. It’s quite popular among small businesses because CafePress, along with Zazzle, provides a more affordable option when it comes to design-and-sell merchandises, and you can get a better deal when you buy a single copy by bulk. So you can turn your love for football into a business.

Online Design Tools

Designing with CafePress is easy. You can pick a ready-made template or use a blank canvas. (Choosing a blank canvas lets you add any image onto the page.) If you’re not sure on how to do things, there is a walkthrough to guide you on the process.

You can add photos by uploading from your drive or importing from Facebook, Picasa, and/or SmugMug. The uploaded photos can be found in a bin on the left side of the page. Those you’ve already used are marked with a green checkmark.

There are many editing tools for each type of merchandise you’re designing. For calendars, you have various photo filters to choose from. You can add texts and graphics on your t-shirts. Basic editing tools, such as move, rotate, and zoom, are also available.

Choose your template properly and be sure with your design because you can’t change the template or edit your work again once you’ve clicked purchase. And when choosing photos, use high resolution images. A low resolution would mean having pixelated images on the print later on. So you have to be really careful when working.

CafePress provides a decent and simple service. Its finished product looks good with a sturdy card-paper stock and straight trim for calendars and posters. It also ships fast. It’s good for small projects and for people with good editing skills.

Show your pride and support for your favorite World Cup 2014 team or player using CafePress.
