We want to provide cool T-shirts, caps, cups and stickers with the artwork that you designed, such as this I’m here now design, created by Michele Minno:

List of websites providing webshop services that can be leveraged to easily create and sell HTC apparel items, like t-shirts.

Requirements

Must-haves

(As also described in the Phone Zombies campaign deliverable):

  • Humanely produced: produced by well-paid workers with proper humane work conditions

  • Low-cost: low production/shipping prices

  • World-wide delivery

  • Easy-to-use: preferably a web app where you can assembly your design by yourself

  • No intermediary payment: financial transaction directly between buyer and webshop (no HTC involvement)

  • Print-on-demand: produce individual orders when they are placed

Should-haves

Important requirements, but not vital for selection.

  • Multiple admins: allows more than one community member to manage community account

  • Environment-friendly: produced sustainably, eco-friendly, recyclable

  • Fair-trade: better than verage trading conditions for producers in developing countries

Comments

@aschrijver: - A comparison of Print-On-Demand webshops by PlaceIt

  • Note: all shops focus on having artists make a profit, not offering (non-profit) t-shirts.

@patm: - Want to add here that if we get our youtube channel going, we can sell the T-shirt on it. This image shows something I looked at today.
