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

By • 4 years ago with 2 replies already

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.

“A few years ago I started writing/drawing a comic strip about a robot that wants to be a superhero.  I fashioned several scenes in my comic strip after a series of photographs I had taken of my boyfriend at one of our favorite spots in Chicago (I’ve attached a photo here).  Life tends to get busy and I put my comic strip and artwork on the back burner for a long time.  I recently discovered Zazzle and the wonderful products they offer for artists to sell their work.  I have since created my own store (WhatJacquiSaid) and it has completely rejuvenated my creativity.

I created these coffee mugs as a gift for my boyfriend for being my inspiration, and they are absolutely perfect.  I’ve sold a few of my designs already and can’t wait to continue on!

  1. The stuff about how Jacqui used her life as inspiration was heart warming! I’ve bought a couple of her products and they are amazing. Thank you for highlighting this wonderful artist!

  2. I love the fact you’ve rediscovered the art of comic strips. I had the same ideas before, but about Zombies. Thanks for the inspirational post, I’ll probably get my stuff up n running soon?
    Cool
