New Shopkeeper Orientation Kit

Welcome to CafePress!

As a new Shopkeeper, you probably have lots of questions and we've put together some resources to help you start and manage a successful business.

Shop To ShopTalk

We've found the best way to help new Shopkeepers get up to speed is through the CafePress Community Forums. By talking directly to experienced Shopkeepers, you'll benefit from their knowledge and skills.

Start chatting with other Shopkeepers on the CafePress Community Forums. You'll find a friendly, helpful place designed to help you with every aspect of starting and growing your business. Here's how you can start:

  • Login to your CafePress account
  • Click on the "CafePress Community Forums" link, found towards the bottom of the page
  • Once on the CafePress Community Forums, select the "Login/Join" link found on the right-hand corner
  • Enter your Screen Name in the "Public Profile Fields" box
  • Start chatting!

Your fellow Shopkeepers can give you advice on shop promotion, graphics, shop management and general questions. You'll find many helpful hints from experienced hands and before you know it, you'll be one of them yourself.

In addition to the help you'll get from your peers, The Learning Center has lots of helpful tips on setting up and optimizing your shop's potential. The Learning Center is a treasure trove of information to help you navigate through the process of setting up your own shop.
