First and foremost, Zazzle is a company that's all about people... our employees, our customers, our sellers and our partners. We believe that having extraordinary people is the greatest possible asset and sustainable advantage for a company. We began with an idea 10 years ago, and publicly launched our website in the summer of 2005. It's been an adventure since then... and we've only just begun.
Our mission is simple: "To Enable Every Custom, On-Demand Product in the World On Our Platform." In other words, Zazzle is creating both the tools and the marketplace to make and sell anything you can imagine - customised. It's no small task but we're getting closer to this reality every single day. And we're having a blast doing it.
At Zazzle, we're developing the technology to turn your imaginative ideas into real products. We're tackling some of the hardest technical challenges around. Not only to develop cutting-edge software, but also innovative hardware and manufacturing systems.
Our products let you... be you! We're dedicated to providing you with an opportunity to express yourself through customisation. And we're committed to offering the highest quality custom products in the world, in an ever-expanding array of categories.
Zazzlers are a passionate bunch. And we believe that anything is possible (ok, most anything). From PhDs in mathematics to physics champions to professional artists and manufacturing experts... we're a mixed bunch, but united by a passion to re-define commerce.
Redwood City, CA – January 29, 2015 –
Today Zazzle added a new product to its growing offerings, custom fabric. Custom fabric can be used for everything from upholstery to craft and sew projects. Zazzle is offering seven types of fabric – including combed cotton and natural linen, all of which can be purchased by the swatch, quarter, or the yard. The price per yard starts at $22.95 per yard.
In addition to the launch of fabric, Zazzle has also made several improvements to the design tool. This tool allows both designers and customers to create and sell lovely art that works well on fabric. Many customers purchase tiled designs on fabric – that is, a smaller image that forms a pattern by repeating itself throughout a larger background. As part of our design tool improvements, we've made it easier to create a tiled pattern from a single image, or even multiple images and text features. In addition, we've added a close-up tile view, as well as a ruler so that customers can see the scale and size of the designs. This tile function offers four different patterns – basic, half brick, half drop, and mirror – which makes it even easier to create a range of various tiled patterns. These new functions allow both amateurs and professional designers to create beautiful designs by tiling separately but consistently. By adding multiple images and text features, anyone can make a beautiful design whether a set of flowers or a group of personal photos.continue reading press releases »
