A couple of months ago we launched Zippo lighters on Zazzle. This amazing company has been producing lighters since 1932, building their brand on the promise of quality craftsmanship and a lifetime guarantee. 85 years later Zippo lighters are a very popular gifting item, and we’re pairing their unique craftsmanship with our amazing customization abilities.

This is where we could use your help, designers! We’d like to see tons more wonderful designs for customers to choose from when purchasing a Zippo lighter on Zazzle. If you need a little inspiration, here are some designs we’ve noticed that customers are really excited about:

Little known fact: Benjamin Franklin had a distinct dislike of the bald eagle as the national bird of the United States, writing to his daughter that, “For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly.” We feel a bit differently than Mr. Franklin did.

The American Flag

Old Glory looks beautiful when waving in a slight breeze, when spread out across a sporting field, and when adorned on a Zippo lighter! Need some evidence? Check these designs out:
