What is Zazzle? In short, Zazzle is an online print-on-demand company whose mission is “to give people the power to make anything imaginable”.
Zazzle is an online marketplace where designers can sell their designs on a vast selection of products that automatically shop to customers from Zazzle. This is a great win-win for both customers and designers like myself.
What is Zazzle: shopping on Zazzle
When you shop on Zazzle, you can usually customize each product to suit your needs. This customization can include:
Customizing Text in a Design
This includes adding a name or a year to the products. Or changing a word. Some of my most popular products are bookplates for personal libraries. I have created a beautiful template that my customers can edit with their own names.
Adding a Photo
Many Zazzle Designers have options for customers to change out or add photos in designs, especially for Christmas cards or graduation announcements. The designer has created an impressive layout, so all you have to do is add your images and text to complete the design.
Changing the Style and Color
With my t-shirt designs, I’ve picked out the t-shirt style and color that I think works best. Usually, I prefer a basic t-shirt for most of my designs. But if you prefer a baby doll t-shirt in a different color, you can add that option too. There are dozens of t-shirt styles to choose from and a dozen different t-shirt colors to pick from too — and that’s just one example of customizations on a product!
What is Zazzle: Ways to Make Money
When talking about print on demand sites like this, they’re not just a place to shop. It is also a place to earn some extra money for Side Hustlers. There are two different ways you can make money with it.
The easiest way is to get a referral link and earn a small commission for referring customers to products and stores.
The second way, if you’re a designer, is to open a Zazzle store of your own, with your own designs.
My Zazzle Store
My store, Thoughts & Designs, offers me the power to sell my designs without having to carry a huge load of inventory in my limited space.
The designs in my store include Tote Bags, T-shirts, Sweatshirts, Hoodies, buttons, stickers and labels, announcements, and more.
If you are looking for something in particular but not finding what you’re looking for, let me know. I appreciate ideas and insights into what my customers are looking for.
