Pairing the Dreamers with the Makers: This week in #zazzlemade

By • 7 years ago with no replies yet

At Zazzle, we pair the Dreamers with the Makers. The result? Products that are as unique as the people who order them.


We ship thousands of these unique products on a daily basis and often think to ourselves, “I wonder where this is going?” or, “I would love to see the person’s face as they open this gift!” and even, if we’re being totally honest here, sometimes, “What on Earth? There has to be an epic story behind this one.”


All of these wonderings inspired us to start the #zazzlemade campaign and your response has been tremendous! From messenger bags in Mississippi to pillows in Peru, we’re receiving stories from all over the world and absolutely love seeing where Zazzle products find their homes. We will be selecting some of these stories to share with you on a weekly basis and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.

“I happened to stumble upon the website, and got hooked immediately. I made cups. I made bags. I made personal printed pillows. I’m just addicted. I got my BOSS addicted. I’m constantly making gifts for her friends’ birthdays and other special occasions.

She has her birthday next week and I made her a custom iPad case. She doesn’t know that yet. (Editor’s note…don’t worry; we waited to run this story so that we didn’t ruin Wendy’s birthday surprise!)

One day, I got a 40% off coupon, so I said I would splurge on myself, and I got monogrammed pillows. I love them.
