Frequently asked questions

What is Zazzle?


Zazzle is a Print on Demand website that allows artists, designers and photographers (like you and me!) to upload our work to a massive number of products in the Zazzle arketplace, whenever we so wish, and Zazzle takes care of everything else, such as the printing, delivery and returns. But hey, why don’t I let Zazzle tell you themselves … See Zazzle’s story.




What Does Print On Demand (POD) mean exactly?


Print on Demand means that nothing is actually printed until someone orders. So like a virtual store in fact!




What Makes Zazzle So Special?


Oh golly, I could sing Zazzle’s praises all day long!! Haha – I’ll try and keep it brief!! The range of products on Zazzle is incredible! From invitations to greetings cards; whole wedding suites; clothes and accessories; home, pet and fitness goods; phone cases; office goods; baby and kids; wall art; and gifts – so much inspiration!




Can I return an item if I am not 100% satisfied with it?


Yes you certainly can! Zazzle also have a great returns policy, and they are excellent at resolving any issues in a timely manner. 100% satisfaction guaranteed!




Why do your links take me to the Zazzle.com website?


As a designer on Zazzle, I create using the US website, even though I’m in the UK. Why? As Zazzle is an American company, the US site shows their whole range of items, some of which don’t appear when you use one of the other country Zazzle websites. Therefore the links I use all go through to the USA site (even though you may get an alert asking if you prefer to link to another country website as you click on them). If I were to link to the UK site for example, and the item selected is not available on the UK site, you will just get taken to the Zazzle UK store homepage and may wonder where that particular item is!




But does that mean I have to order on the USA Zazzle site?


Not at all, in most cases, unless the item you require is not available on your own country’s Zazzle site. What I would recommend is that you continue to the US site when you click the link to be taken to the product, THEN click your country flag, to be taken to that Zazzle site. If the item you require is shown, you know it is available to order on your country’s site and you will see the prices in your currency. Even though many of Zazzle’s products are shipped from printing companies in America, by using your own country’s site, you can take advantage of Zazzle Black shipping deal for your country.




What is Zazzle Black Shipping?


I LOVE the Zazzle Black shipping option as I order regularly from Zazzle!! As a UK resident I subscribe from the UK site which means it applies when I order any product via the UK site. The annual subscription is small, currently around UK£12, and all your Zazzle Standard shipping costs are covered! It saves a fortune even if you only order a couple of times and the Standard shipping cost can be tracked and is faster than the basic shipping method. A great deal well worth having especially if you are a regular Zazzle customer.




How is the quality of products from Zazzle?


As well as the joy of having a Zazzle store, I’ve also ordered several things from them and have been delighted with the quality of everything I personally have bought. I’ve ordered several T shirts which have proved very comfy and good quality and many gifts for friends and family which I’ve been very happy with – as have they! I regularly order some of my own designs on cards, invitations etc., so I can see how they look printed and to make sure I am happy with them, from a design point of view as well as the quality of the product, and they look stunning. I also purchased one of my designs on a throw cushion and was over the moon with the quality and how well made it is! So from my own experience, I’ve found everything to be highly satisfactory to date. But of course Zazzle’s return policy is in place should you have any problems. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.




What is an Affiliate Link?


As a designer on Zazzle, I am also an affiliate for them. In the name of full transparency, please be aware that this site contains affiliate links to the Zazzle site and any purchases made through such links will result in a commission for me (at no extra cost for yourself).




Is it Easy to Personalise items on Zazzle?


Oh yes indeed! Many designers on Zazzle, like myself, allow their designs to be customised. Easy customisation is one of Zazzle’s most popular features! Personalising items is very straightforward especially if you just wish to change text to your own details or swap in your own photos into smaple templates. This can be done simply via the Personalise this Template option. You can also Click to customise further to make more changes, such as change the color of backgrounds and fonts, and text styles, etc. The Zazzle design tool is second to none. And if you get stuck customising an item from my store, or transferring one of my designs to another item by all means email FotografixgalDesigns@gmail.com and I will be happy to help.
