Emmanuel Endorphin's Serotonin Storeroom

Within the past week, I have created a new online T-shirt store via the popular online marketplace which, according to their official site, "offers sellers complete e-commerce services to independently create and sell a wide variety of products, and offers buyers unique merchandise across virtually every topic."

Not only can anyone customize their own products on this site; ANYONE can also set up their very own on-line shop on CafePress, where one can make up to 50 different products for FREE on a Basic Level account (one also has the choice of upgrading to a Premium Level account for as low as $4.99/month) and have the potential to make moolah, even on the free Basic Level account.

How that works is that, because there's no inventory costs associated with selling products on CafePress, each product has something called a base price that includes fees associated with selling where, if one desires to try and make some money from selling their products on the site, one can set their retail price above the base price. That way, when one successfully sells an item from their own store, CafePress sends the store owner a commission check for their total mark-ups every month (for instance, a Value T-shirt has a base price of $8.99, and if one decided to mark it up to $13.99, and successfully sold a shirt, CafePress sends the seller a check equivalent to the total mark-up, which is in this case $5.00.)



Ergo, I've put together "Emmanuel Endorphin's Serotonin Storeroom", and completed my very first T-shirt today, which features my signature interjection: "Soak Up That Vitamin D!" on the front, and another: "Spread Those Endorphins Around!" on the back!

More T-shirts are in the works (all of which will feature 100% organic cotton and are made in America). Several others I'm currently working on include a tribute to Kirk Gleason from "The Gilmore Girls", as well as one centered around anoxeria awareness and another around the Darfur humanitarian crisis, and more still will be based on a handful of my poetic works, possibly even some featuring my art, who knows?

I aspire to develop my T-shirt designing skills in the months ahead, and conjure up far more innovative products, yay! I hope some of the rest of you grasp at this golden opportunity too, yay!

Noah!! The GG's one.. I know a rather interesting group that would buy tanks and boyshorts, for logan and jess. Personally, a cooky Michel Quote tank would rock. He says the funniest stuff.
