"Best" print on demand services for t shirts?

I am looking for a print on demand service such as zazzle for t shirts, but with a more customizable "storefront" area. Ideally, something sort of like big cartel, but print on demand. The main features I am looking for are ease of use, order fulfillment, and quality t shirts. Obviously the higher cut the better--but I know that fulfillment and nice storefronts don't come cheap.

Alternatively, if this even exists, I'd be open to some kind of fulfillment service that has an API allowing you to put in orders on your own website and gateway.

(I'm in the US, btw.)

RedBubble is pretty cool, and might meet some or all of your requirements.

I don't think they strictly have a "customisable storefront", but they do provide options to sell goods via your own website – which I guess is the most customisable storefront you could ask for.

With risk of a threadjack: What about quality? 'Cause I've not been too happy with CafePress products in the past.

Thanks to puffl and fac21 for the answers. I'm going to do a quality test and try to remember to post back for posterity.

I've used RedBubble a couple of times and have found the quality pretty good. The printing tends to look better and wear better on the lighter coloured shirts. If the main t-shirt colour is darker, it can sometimes show through the printing a bit.
