Face to Face – A Contributor Story

August 13, 2007

I was recently cruisin’ the Zazzle Forums and just so happened to come across this story that is so freakin’ cool I almost fell out of my chair. So, of course, I wanted to share it with the rest of you. The story comes to us from Zazzle contributor Donamaria who just happened to be at the right place at the right time…

Today I went shopping at a mall that is approx 30 minutes from where I live, (the closest indoor mall) and walking straight towards me is a woman with a t-shirt on that looked too familiar! The closer she got the more I realized that the design was one of my own original fine art prints, printed on it. I stopped her and we talked and she said she purchased the tee on Zazzle. She invited me to feel the quality of the shirt (which I did) and I was thrilled to see my design “up front and so personal on someone else!”

You never know where or when you will see one of your own pieces or artwork. Today I was blown away…

THANK YOU Zazzle for making that customer happy

D.

ISN’T THAT SWEET?!! So folks, keep your eyes peeled when you’re walking around cause it could happen to you too (I want to be told if so)! …WHAT? You’re not a contributor yet? OMG, you gotta join, seriously it’s easy and free, just like sunshine (note: Zazzle does not cause sunburns).
