cgk.ink MAKES THINGS
I advise small- to medium-sized retailers how to create effective (and profitable) online stores.
So I decided to create a site that shows what I know to be true and effective in ecommerce. This site is where I get to play with new ideas, test out new technologies and often fail miserably. In public. It’s a test to prove ever-evolving technology is not just “good enough” but gets the job done. And a commitment to future clients that I will always be vigilant.
The primary goal is to show, not tell. And to have some fun along the way. It’s a very real, working ecommerce site. And it’s also a laboratory, teaching tool, portfolio and fun-house.
If you’re new to ecommerce, or are an experienced geek, I invite you to poke around the site.
Check back often, this site does not sit quietly for long.

I use a service to deliver Print-on-Demand (PoD) products. Printify primarily fulfills almost all of my requirements. And they do it well. The main challenge is to match the right design with the right product/media.
Once I’ve found or created the perfect graphic, the most important detail is that the medium is of high enough resolution to be rendered well in a variety of sizes and on multiple matetrials.
Not all designs work on all products.But when you find the sweet spot, it’s a blast to create virtually anything
