Mass Customization Expert Frank Piller Speaks at Zazzle

April 20, 2009

Frank Piller, one of the leading academics in the field of mass customization, stopped by Zazzle for a little visit last week and to give a talk on mass customization. His talk focused on the idea of mass customization and theories that compel people to want customized products. He had some very interesting points about the importance of the experience of customizing a product and how that can be as important as the product itself. Of course, Dr. Piller had nothing but good things to say about Zazzle and our role as one of the leading mass customization companies. To read more about Dr. Piller’s visit to Zazzle check out his follow up blog post.

Thanks Dr. Piller for stopping by and next time we’ll have a little video of it for our intrepid blog readers (camera was inoperable this time…sorry folks). If you want to take a Dr. Piller class, just head over to Germany where he is a professor of management at the Technology & Innovation Management Group of RWTH Aachen University. I’m trying to get Zazzle to send me to the October sessions which has nothing to do with some kind of beer festival that happens in Germany, or so I’ve heard.


Tree-Shirt ReLeaf – You buy a shirt, we plant a tree – Help us plant 100,000 trees!

April 16, 2009

Beginning today we’re launching Tree-Shirt ReLeaf, our campaign in partnership with American Forests, to help plant 100,000 trees in the US. And you can participate! All you have to do is buy a shirt (any shirt on Zazzle) with the code PLANTATREE09, and Zazzle will donate to American Forests to plant a tree in your honor. The more shirts you buy, the more trees we plant. It’s win, win – you get awesome t shirts like some of our Exclusive Earth Day t-shirts, and American Forests gets tress to help restore forests around the US.

Even though Bobby’s eyes made him look like one of the mole-people seeing sun for the first time (he basically never leaves the office), it was a great interview that really expresses the value of Zazzle as a platform for anyone and everyone to build their brand on. Just as Bobby said, “We’re the framework which enables it all to happen…”

April 8, 2009

Just a fun little Zazzle shirt story from my vacation…

So I’m wearing my “+5 Shirt of Invisibility” t-shirt and going through security at LAX.

Security guard: +5 shirt of invisibility, huh?

Me: Yeah. You can’t see me, can you?

Security guard: Yes I can. I’m wearing my +10 Goggles of True Seeing.

Dang. Foiled by a true professional!

Here is the shirt:
