How It Works
Once you sign up for the affiliate program, CafePress will assign you an affiliate ID number, or PID. The PID is how CafePress tracks the sales and traffic generated by your site, so you need to append it to every link that you build to our products. For example, the link for the Community Theater Green Room Originals homepage is:
To send a customer from your site and get a commission on anything they buy, add a question mark and your PID to the URL like this:
replacing YOUR_PID with the actual PID that CafePress has assigned to you. This works for any URL on the CafePress site, and the CafePress affiliates section has loads of information about other ways to link.
Simple, right? Well, we've made it even easier for you by providing hosted banners with copy-and-paste code, and information about a free and easy link- and image-grabber tool!
Grab Our Banner Code!
To place a banner on your site, copy the code below the banner,
paste it into a page on your site and replace YOUR-PID with your own CafePress affiliate ID.
Show Products on Your Site with AP Link Builder!
A free and easy way to grab properly-formatted links and images of individual products to place on your site is to get the AP Link Builder from JGoode's CP Tools - it's actually just a URL that you add to your browser's bookmarks or favorites. When you visit the page of one of our products that you'd like to sell on your site, you simply click AP LinkBuilder in your Favorites or Bookmarks folder (or the corresponding button on your toolbar, if you display it there), and it will show you a page that allows you to customize the link, then creates copy-and-paste HTML for text and image links that already includes your own PID!
Here's sample HTML code generated by AP LinkBuilder for our "Marry An Actor" dark long-sleeved shirt:

And this is what it would look like on your page:

From Chris Polo,
Community Theater Green Room Webmaster and Community Theater Green Room Originals Designer:
I opened Community Theater Green Room Originals in the spring of 2006 to sell community theater designs, mostly because it seemed that all the theater stuff out there was geared to professional Broadway shows. My shop dovetails nicely with my real life -- I manage an in-house creative services team, and before that, I worked for many years as a graphic designer. And when I'm not at work, of course, I act, design sets, and do all those other jobs that community theater requires at my home theater, the Kent County Theatre Guild in Dover, DE. Community theaters are always looking for ways to raise money, and this affiliate program allows me to share both my products and the proceeds with others who love community theater as much as I do. I hope that your partnership with Community Theater Green Room Originals is as exciting and rewarding for you as it has been for me!
