Default Cafepress.com account worth anything?

When Cafepress.com first debuted in 2001, I opened and account to make and sell shirts etc. I completely forgot about it until the other day when I saw something about Cafepress on MSNBC being a much larger company than I thought and was publicly traded.

So, my account is cafepress.com/cars and I am wordering if it has any value as I have the rights to it. Anyone have any expirience with anything even remotely close to the rhelm of this?

Not Much.

If Cafepress gets wind if you selling it, they'll terminate the account - 99% chance at least.

Companies like Cafepress get mad if you sell things like that.

If they have knowledge of it and allow the sale to be made, it creates a legal argument for it being your property instead of theirs.

I used cafepress to make a test run of shirts with my logo on them and IMO, the quality is garbage. I had 2 long sleeve shirts made and 1 of them has almost completely lost the logo, while the other one is in so so condition.

$100 down the drain, but I know I'll never use them again. Especially when I do a full on run of 20+ sweatshirts.

---- cafepress.
