Custom Calendars – Perfect for Valentine’s Day

January 29, 2008

Custom love calendaras With little time to spare, I bet that you’re starting to panic about Valentine’s Day gifts. So I just thought I’d give you a little idea, like making a photo calendar with great snapshots of you and your loved one. It’s really easy, just take some photos, add them to one of our amazing calendar templates, and you’re done. But, if you really want to go all Casanova (and I know you do…), try adding little captions to each month to make it extra personal.

Learn more about making a Valentine’s Day Calendar at our calendars page »

Hey, if you don’t want to do anything for Valentine’s Day, that’s cool, but still check out the great offering of custom photo calendars that we’ve got , or create a custom photo calendar to sell if you’re into the whole making money on the internet thing (I know you’re going to click it…).

PSSTT there is a promo going on around calendars right now too….
30% off all calendars when you use this code: YEAR2008CALS but you didn’t hear it from me…


Zazzle Helps Students Become Lawyers

January 28, 2008

So you’re at law school and about to take the final exam, and guess what? Your favorite company is on the tests! I object! Well actually I don’t, I just wanted to say that…Yup, that’s right; Zazzle was the topic of an interesting question about custom postage and its uses. See the question below.

Zazzle in law school

With Zazzle being in a law school exam, it seems that we’re just one step from people saying “Zazzle it,” when they have a great artistic idea (I say it all the time and it’s starting to catch on in, I can feel it….).

Also, I thought I would remind everyone that you can create your own photo postage, or sell your designs on postage with Zazzle. Custom postage is perfect for those big events in your life, like say Valentine’s Day, or maybe a wedding HINT, HINT (your significant other told me to say that).

Check out these beautiful Zazzle custom stamps from the Knot’s wedding postage collection…HINT HINT (seriously, get moving on it)

Zigg – The Zazzle Digg

January 22, 2008

Thanks to power of coRank, a tool that allows users to create websites that share content with people, Zazzle now has its own external site for sharing and ranking products in real-time called Zigg. Of course there’s a page on Zazzle called the What’s Fresh page that does this too, but Zigg is important for sharing content outside of Zazzle. Also, it’s awesome for promoting your gallery and building your link traffic for search engines like Google and Yahoo.
Join Zigg and start ziggin’ your designs and the designs of your fellow Zazzlers! Also, check out Zazzle’s Earn Money section for more tips on making some of the green stuff (psst…there is also a blog post about the top 10 ways to earn money online with Zazzle…).
