Ordering T-Shirts: Then and Now

In this video, you will see how ordering a custom t-shirt used to be done. You'll see a frustrated customer who is trying to get the t-shirt store owner to give him the proper t-shirt he ordered. Confusion, delays and shoddy service only add fuel to the fire as the customer grows more irate, not to mention that he probably took time out of his busy schedule to make the commute to the store. Observe.

Notice how the customer ends up having gone there for nothing because his t-shirt won't be ready 'til "Thursday"? That's enough to make any talking, green piece of felt's blood boil. It's not easy being green when you're seeing red, huh Kermit?

That was then, this is now. Can you tell me how to get...how to get to Zazzle.com?

Zazzle is just one of the many print-on-demand (POD) service providers that has popped up on the internet in the last ten years or so. It seems like a new online t-shirt retailer is popping up everyday, adding to the burgeoning, world wide web, POD industry.

It has revolutionized the way people shop. Imagine creating, customizing and buying (or selling) your own t-shirt within a few minutes, all without leaving the comfort of your own home. No waiting in line. Just the fact that you can avoid the holiday season-shopping crowds is enough to consider it. Not only that but you'll save yourself a trip and gas expenses.

Another well known POD company and perhaps the most established, is Cafepress.

Some of the others are Printfection, Spreadshirt, Red Bubble, MySoti and T-Shirt Monster.
