Who needs this sort of service?
We have helped 100s of teams and groups with giving them a custom store for their group's apparel needs. If you have a group of people that need to order matching items then this is a great solution. You dont need to collect sizes from everyone, collect payment, deliver, etc. All you need to do is work with us to set up your store, then get the store link to your team. We handle the rest.
Can I use your service to collect orders from my team but still place a bulk order?
Absolutly. We can set up a store for you with prices marked as zero. Then people can place their "free" orders and then when they are all complete we can bill you for the total at a bulk rate. We would then print the shirts and send them in bulk to you to hand out to your team.
Can I mix a free team shirt with other items that people would pay for?
Yep! Not an issue.
What sort of groups have used this service?
We have done custom stores for Triathlon teams, Running teams, Swimming team, Cycling teams, Curch groups, and Businesses!
What is the cost difference between opening a store through you guys vs. buying printed tees in bulk?
There are a number of factors that influence the unit cost in bulk orders: Qnty, number of colors in the design, and the garment. You can use our online quote form to request a quote on bulk orders.
Can we open a store but have a website that's independent of Custom Printed Material?
Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to plug in to the back end of other platforms such as Shopify and Magento at this stage. You could open a store on one of these platforms, but you would need to key your orders in manually via the front end of your CPM store.
What if I bought my own domain?
You can redirect your CPM store to a Domain name that you have purchased, this can be done in the backend of your store.
What are the return policies?
You can view our return policy via this link: http://www.customprintedmaterials.com/returns
Can we negotiate our costs after selling 100 tees or something?
Due to the nature and work involved with drop shipping, and the fact that affiliates already receive 20% off everything in our store we do not currently negotiate lower fees.
How customisable is our website? Can we add things like a blog?
You can fully customise your own website, and include a blog also.
Will our store look completely our own without any reference to Custom Printed Material if we do host with you?
All orders are shipping in blank unbranded packaging with a white label. We don't leave any CPM thumb prints on any part of your order, so as far as your customer is aware you print the order yourself.
Do you offer custom branding of tags and packaging?
At this stage we do not offer any kind of custom branding or packing. We do hope to do so in the near future, stay tuned.
I can't login to my store? Can you help?
In order to login to your store you need to first go to your stores homepage. You can not log into your store via our CPM homepage. Once on your own homepage, key in your username and password and you will automatically be taken to the back end of your store.
