Behind The Scenes At CafePress

Most of you probably know that you can use CafePress to order your own image or design on over 600 different base goods. But have you ever seen us at work? We took a stroll through our manufacturing facility in Louisville, Ky., last week to see what was being made for fans and customers like you!

This Divergent tee from long-time CafePress designer MissThree was hot off the heat press … so much so you could see the steam rising up from the heat transfer!

One of our wall art printers was busy with Jim Navary’s design for the ski lovers out there.

Kathleeen Sanderson ordered serving trays like this through our Create and Buy feature to serve as a fund-raiser for Mrs. McGuinn’s third grade class at St. Benedict Prep in Chicago. This one is obviously in progress as the other end hasn’t yet been screwed on. You can see the tray panels stacked to the left for additional ones to be made.

And we saw this order of 100 mini buttons being put together. The design is from, which uses CafePress to fulfill its merchandise orders!

No matter what time of year, the action never stops in Louisville or at our wall art facility in Raleigh, N.C., or our groups plant in Connecticut. Whether you order a t-shirt, a mouse pad, canvas shoes or cell phone case, at least one of our 800 or more employees is carefully crafting that product just for you.

If you have a certain product you’d like to see us show in production, drop a comment and we’ll look for them next time we run through the plant with our camera flashing!
