Jeff Beaver, Zazzle Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, was recently featured on a NBC piece about San Francisco Bay Area companies bringing manufacturing jobs back to the USA. A true testament to our commitment to high quality manufacturing in the US, the clips show Jeff talking about our production facility for custom t-shirts, mugs, and more in Santa Clara and our recent partnership with Rickshaw Bagworks (made in San Francisco). Check it out below.
Towards the end of the segment, the reporter makes the statement, “…And the outlook? More tags saying made somewhere else.” What do you think about that? I don’t think that’s the case. As personalization becomes the norm (what if your iPhone was partially designed by YOU?) and the cost of overseas labor and transportation rise, I believe there will be a demand for locally made/high quality products.
What do you think? Is American manufacturing coming back? Where do you want to see American manufacturing return?
