The Zazzle website was publicly launched in 2005 but the idea behind it started much earlier. This company highly values the people behind their products – the hardworking employees, their loyal customers and their partners. Their mission is to become the leading marketplace for anything and everything custom.
They have an ever-expanding array of products, from t-shirts to bags and gadget cases. A lot of their products also follow a theme – funny, holidays, bridal, military, wedding and many more. They also have interesting office products like business cards, letterheads, flyers, etc. that you can give out as gifts or for office events. Not all of the products are customizable but we promise you there is a huge assortment of customizable products from different categories that you can design.
You’ll be glad to know that the site constantly posts sales, promo codes and discounts on their page. You can get up to 65% off on selected items but even without the discounts, their prices are still very reasonable. Shirts are priced at around $20 – $35, bags are $10 – $45 and there are several great merchandise that are below $30.
They have a great design application, which makes it easy to create and build your very own design whether you are making a custom tee, iPhone case, bag or business card. The application is equipped with several tools that let you drag, zoom, rotate and change the design according to your liking. You can also add text and there is a nice variety of font options available. The only downside is – they don’t have a library of cliparts and graphic artworks like most websites, so the images to upload must come from your own computer’s library.
They have a fast turnaround time but this still depends on the item you order. Some of the custom items can take 7 – 14 business days to ship but a lot of the custom shirts have a 24-hour turnaround time. They also do not have any minimum orders or setup fees that you have to worry about. The site has a Zazzle Secure Shopping Guarantee as well as the Zazzle Promise, which states that they can accept returns for store credit or refund within 30 days of order receipt, regardless of customization.
Overall, Zazzle is a very impressive website. They have some of the widest range of product options we have seen, and most of them are customizable. The prices are very reasonable, not the cheapest online but still pretty affordable. To add to that, their design application, although lacking in some ways, is still very efficient and enjoyable.
