Linking to specific product

Hi all,
Currently my Cafepress Shop is organized by design. Once in awhile though I like to advertise products that are available using banners on my home page.

I want my visitors to be able to click on the banner and only be able to see journals (for example). Rather than have to go into each design category.

Is there something I can add to the end of my shop URL that would filter out specific product?

I know you can link the banner to your Cafepress store but I want to keep them on my site.

Anyone have any ideas?

I used to have a "shop by products" sidebar but did away with it because you can't read the designs on a page of just products! Very frustrating to shop there unless you know how to get the design bigger or in a pop-up window (I don't).

Here's how I would create a link to a page of a specific product:

1. Create a new section in your cpshop admin panel for Journals. Give it the Alias "journals". You can show this on your homepage or not.

2. Create the link to it:
<a href="/cgi-bin/shop/shop/journals">
Of course, you have to rename "shop" shop or store or whatever you have yours named.

I'm as low-level HTML proficient as you can get and still do this stuff... so I hope you can figure this out!!!

Good luck.
