What do you do for merchandise, if anything?

What do you guys in the Stareable community at large do for your merchandise, if anything? Is there a store service you use/prefer? Ones to watch out for? Where do you get the best bang for your buck with these services?

Curious what people do in this regard.

Killing it! is doing some screenings coming up and we have merch. We are making buttons, magnets and posters. We are not sure how they will be received but you gotta try things in this life!

The only consistent site I’ve used is CafePress, which has a lot of products to choose from but very little control over the design itself- you just gotta hope that whatever logo or art you’re putting on their thousands of products looks good without any futzing, because futzing is hella limited.

My CafePress stores:

I’ve tried using Teespring (and Stareable is currently using Bonfire to sell FORGET THE BOX TEESHIRTS EVERYONE GRAB YOURS BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!) but I’m not a huge fan of having a time limit on merch (especially because you often have to completely recreate the listing to renew the design) even though the merch is higher quality by far. It’s just not a good fit for small time creators, and a pain to have to constantly monitor.

Sadly, that’s not a great seller. YET.

We did sell a baby onesie though! To our director’s niece… but still!!

I haven’t ordered much but I’m happy with the stuff I ordered from the following sites.

Wristbands - http://www.wristbandconnection.com/ - reasonably priced and bought in bulk 5 years ago and I still have a lot. Although I don’t sell them I use them as a promotional tool.

Stickers - https://stickerobot.com/ Same. I use these to post around cities as promo tools, but I absolutely love how they came out!

For stickers I’m a big fan of Sticker Mule but I’ve never heard of Sticker Robot! Will have to check them out
