How did CafePress get its name?
I'm just guessing, but CafePress' first two items appear to have been the small and large mug. That leads me to believe that they really did start as a print-your-own-mug site -- which would explain the name: CafePress. (I imagine the idea to add shirts, hats and sweaters was an inevitable no-brainer.)
