    So I wanted something special for my

    12000th post!!!

    and I thought, I'll tell you about my new venture :) I started an online shop, selling bird stuff. I like birds.

    Check it out if you like, and if you have a business background, feel free to critique the heck out of it. It only ships to the US but obviously I don't expect anyone to buy anything, just have a look.

    Have you considered adding glass prints in addition to your canvas print offerings? Or maybe metal prints?

    What software (WooCommerce, Shopify...) did you use for your storefront?

    What service is used for your print on demand products (shirts, etc.)?

    The "Shop For" part felt confusing to me. Are you buying these people? If not, what are customers meant to be buying?

    Bella Canvas shirts are the standard for print on demand shirts. What percent of shirts sold are Bella Canvas vs. other types?

    If you don't already have it, I'd like to see hats with "Bird Brain" printed on them.

    We've had a steadily growing population of Indian Ring Necked Parakeets in London since the 60's, they roost in and around Clapham Common but they fly over our house in North East London a couple of times a day.

    Really? Wild ones? That's awesome. :) We are spoiled here in Sydney with the wild parrots we have, its ridiculous - every day the garden is full of lorikeets and cockatoos, with rosellas and others happening by occasionally too.
    Yeah, that's the sort of feedback I need. The site design is a simple theme that came with Shopify and I was quite chuffed by it, but I'm thinking now I need something more... user friendly? I dunno, something different.
    This will be embroidered, not printed. What sort of hat do you want? Baseball cap? Trucker hat? Bucket hat? Beanie?

    @Shiningted
    The hat was an idea for others. (I have plenty of clothes.)

    Well, if I need an idea for a slogan that insults my customer base, I'll know who to come to.
