I'm currently developing a brand of cultural-inspired merchandise (eg. books, t-shirts, stickers, etc.) that I would like to promote via my wordpress website which is under construction.
I plan to upload my designs to a CafePress.com-based online store which can be linked to the main site (eg. [url removed, login to view]) with product carousels appearing throughout the site.
ABOUT [url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view] is an online marketplace that 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.
Although Cafepress is a leading print-on-demand service, unfortunately, their base templates are a bit too generic (eg: [url removed, login to view]) for the brand I am developing. I really need something more dynamic and unique that will tie-in seamlessly with the core website and brand.
1. The Paramount Pictures Shop
[url removed, login to view]
This is a great example of a stand-alone store that does not reflect the CAFEPRESS branding anywhere. This is what I need as I do not want to encourage competitors to join CafePress and it creates the illusion that I own the rights to all of the merchandise.
2. The Peanuts Store
This is a great example of the variety of products and collections that will be available at the online store. I like this much better than the Paramount Shop minus the references to CafePress. The layout does not have to be very fancy as long as all of the details, colour options, etc. are clear and navigation is easy.
The initial design should be simple and light with elements of the primary website for brand continuity. Future updates may be more dynamic depending on the market/budget.
Please provide an estimate to create a clean, user-friendly template that does not include references to CafePress.com. Use lots of white space!
Hello all freelancers!
Thank you for your interest in this project! You have all posed some very interesting questions and presented ideas that have caused me to re-think everything. Therefore, I need to go back to the drawing board to flesh out my ideas some more. Unfortunately we are now approaching the busy holiday season, hence I will postpone the project for the time being and take it up in the new year.
I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and wish you all the best for the holidays.
