I’m in the midst of expanding our product line through Zazzle. If you haven’t yet heard of it, it’s a Print On Demand company based in California. There are three great ways you can use it:
1. Buy Zoetic Endeavours products like mugs, T-shirts, calendars, tote bags,…
Print On Demand means we don’t have to invest a lot of capital on physical inventory for products we can’t print directly ourselves. Instead, you order our artwork on the products we’ve created in the Zazzle marketplace, and they are printed one at a time as the orders come in.
I’m particularly glad they have sustainable options like organically-grown cotton T-shirts and organically-grown cotton tote bags.
Because there are so many products available there, the easiest way to find our products within the marketplace is to click on the product you want from the Flash panel above. This will take you directly to the product’s sales page on the main site (U.S.). Or, to go to our virtual Zazzle storefront, choose the link according to your location:
- Main Zazzle site (U.S.): www.Zazzle.com/MarianBuchanan*/
- For Canadian prices including taxes: www.Zazzle.ca/MarianBuchanan*/
- For prices in Pounds or Euros on the Zazzle U.K. site: www.Zazzle.co.uk/MarianBuchanan*/
- There is also an Australian Zazzle site: www.Zazzle.com.au/MarianBuchanan*/
- …and a Zazzle New Zealand: www.Zazzle.co.nz/MarianBuchanan*/
Note: Regardless of which site you buy from, the product will be printed in and shipped from the U.S., so be aware that shipping fees are extra, but you will have an opportunity to find out how much it is before your payment is processed. To save on shipping, it’s best to combine orders rather than just have one item shipped alone.
2. Buy products by other creators
Use the links above to get you into the appropriate Zazzle site, … then go exploring! I will be adding recommended art products by others as I discover them, as it’s hard to wade through the millions of available products even with keyword searches.
3. Last but not least … make your own!
Again, use the above links to get into the appropriate site by location, and then click on the Create link, choose the object you want to print to, and upload your own images, add your own text, and make a design that’s truly your own. You can even make it available for sale to others, if you wish. Great for kids’ art, or a one-of-a-kind personalized design for yourself or someone you love.
Don’t forget: ‘Tis the season for holiday gift-giving!
If you celebrate Christmas or some other gift-giving winter holiday, the next little while will be the perfect time to place an order for a Zoetic Endeavours art product. I’ll be turning the existing artwork into products as quickly as I can, but if there is a particular image and product combination you’d like to get and it hasn’t yet been created, please don’t hesitate to contact me with your request so I can prioritize it.
And let me know what you think of these new offerings, too!
