A Hanukkah Treat for Everyone (Besides Latkes)

November 27, 2012

The time is here to dust off the dreidels, restock the candles and fry up some latkes: it’s almost Hanukkah! In days long ago, the Maccabees filled eight straight days and eight straight nights with miraculous light — and if you need a boost to find the perfect Hanukkah gifts, Zazzle has tons of choices for Bubbes, brothers, babies and everyone else around the Hanukkiah.

Shed a sweet light among your loved ones with custom Hanukkah cards, using your own family photos and other precious art –

No need to make it out of clay: find a festive plate for Mom (or Dad) to serve their delicious sufganiot –

And reward the latke chef in your life with a proud “Got Latkes?” shirt, “Born to Spin” tee or (our personal favorite) “Real Men Make Latkes” trucker hat.

Why give simple gelt when you can do so much better and be the Maccabee of gift-giving? Smite everyone with the might of your great taste this Hanukkah and bring light to their lives.

Zazzle Grows Holiday Hiring With Largest Effort Ever

November 15, 2012

Now hiring elves and reindeer for all open positions, please apply within! In anticipation of the holiday shopping season, we are hiring more than 600 people to join the team here in the Bay Area. This year is going to be our largest holiday hiring effort ever, and based on the letters that Santa Claus is already receiving at the North Pole, we will need to staff up to handle the rush.

We’re looking for more than 600 enthusiastic and talented individuals to join the Zazzle team. We have open roles in both our corporate office in Redwood City, California, as well as our manufacturing facility in San Jose, California. By December 2012, we anticipate that more than 1000 people will be working in both locations combined. Unfortunately, Zazzle does not disclose the total number of employees, but we can assure you, this is the largest we’ve ever been! We are looking for customer service representatives, experts in digital press production, skateboard manufacturing, plus a marketing associate, to name just a few open roles.

Our San Jose manufacturing facility is making stuff right in the heart of Silicon Valley. When you order something from Zazzle, each product is made to order, typically within 24 hours. In fact, we’ll be running multiple shifts, for the night owls among you. We’ll need reliable production staff who are enthusiastic team-players. Work can be fun, especially when you’re making sure that the holidays will be happy for everyone.

Zazzle’s San Jose facility customizes hundreds of thousands of products each day – these are Christmas ornaments, not cookies

Zazzle has both temporary and regular positions available including some part-time positions. Potential applicants can also email holidayjobs@zazzle.com. Many hands make light work, and we know that Zazzle’s workshop will be very busy this season.

Seller Spotlight: TDSWhite

November 8, 2012

Matthew and Trevor are the dynamic duo behind one of Zazzle’s most popular stores, TDSWhite. Specializing in awesome holiday products and all things classic weddings, they’ve been selling their creations on Zazzle since its early days. Trevor has a background in photography and design, and Matthew has the writing chops, which is put to good use copywriting descriptions for their products.

If we had to describe our style, we’d say it’s timeless, classic and long-lasting. When we’re focusing on designing Zazzle custom postage or wedding products, we’ll make sure to include a beautiful white gown, flowers that don’t go out of fashion (like roses) or popular colors for the season.

We’re especially proud of our Zazzle custom postage for the holidays, which incorporate winter scenes and snowflake patterns. They’re a hit with customers. As for weddings, our background in floral photography helped us design successful products. We started out with Zazzle custom postage, and as more products were added, like invitations or towels, we adapted our designs to fit the products.

One of our biggest pieces of advice when designing for weddings is to pay close attention to color in your products. We try to keep our designs timeless, but we also pay attention to popular colors for each season. The color selection for wedding products in the fall and winter is different than spring and summer. There’s more earth tones, bright oranges and reds. As you go into winter, cool colors like blues, greys, bright red and white are popular all the way through the holiday season.

As if creating and designing on Zazzle isn’t enough to keep Matthew and Trevor busy, Matthew is also a screenwriter & novelist. Trevor designs all of his book covers. Check out their work at Matthew’s website: http://www.MatthewGrantOnline.com
