CafePress, a San Mateo, Calif.-based provider of user-generated ecommerce solutions, has raised $8.3 million in new VC funding. Return backers include Sequoia Capital. [Update: TechCrunch is reporting that this is a new stock issuance rather than a VC funding. Will check it out when CafePress opens for biz. Of greater import is why my mistake was made — assuming it’s a mistake — which will be coming in a post at around 10am. In short, these “according to a regulatory filing” items may soon be a thing of the past, due to new SEC regulations]. www.cafepress.com
