You can now buy Cox & Forkum apparel and merchandise in our new Cox & Forkum CafePress Store -- t-shirts, mugs, mousepads, and more. Not only do the products feature some of our favorite editorial cartoons, but there are brand new designs as well (some of them featured below).
Over the years we've had requests for various cartoons to be put on t-shirts, but there wasn't an economically feasible way for us to do so using traditional silkscreen methods. Which colors, sizes, styles? How many? Would they even sell?
CafePress offers an excellent alternative. To apply the images on apparel in one-off orders, CafePress uses heat transfers and what they call "direct printing." After purchasing a number of our own designs from them, we found that the production quality met and often exceeded our expectations. In addition, CafePress offers a 100% money-back guarantee on all products. It's not silkscreening, but it's a method that allows us to offer products that we couldn't otherwise.
Below are some of our new designs (click on image to go directly to products).
