CafePress Launches Official Store for Blockbuster Film Ted13:15 EDT Tuesday, July 10, 2012LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 10, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CafePress Inc. (Nasdaq:PRSS), The World's Customization Engine™ and Universal Pictures have teamed up to create the official online store for this summer's blockbuster film Ted. To the delight of fans, this extensive collection of fun fodder is inspired by the gut-busting, hit comedy about a boy and his love for his sharp-tongued, beer drinking, talking teddy bear. The selection of t-shirts and gear features a fun selection of movie moments and notable quotables such as: "Sing the thunder song!" "White-trash names." "Ted is my thunder buddy!" "Okay, alright… So that's where we'll draw the line." "Good talk, Coach." Coming soon, shoppers will also have the option of buying their own life-sized replicas of the foul-mouthed, yet loveable anthropomorphic plush pal. "CafePress is excited to bring Ted's shenanigans to life," says Marc Cowlin, director of marketing at "We had such fun working on this project. Ted had so many great moments and one-liners that are perfect for gear— it was difficult to choose. Ted is truly a film that people will quote from for years." Commitments from additional partners, Media Rights Capital (MRC) and Ripple Junction, also made this project possible.  To learn more visit: Ted: Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of Ted. In the live action/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish… and has refused to leave his side ever since. About CafePress [PRSS]: CafePress is The World's Customization Engine™.
