Bay Area Earthquake Prints

March 30, 2009

The Zazzle HQ was rockin’ a little bit this morning thanks to a 4.4 earthquake in the Bay Area. Everyone and every server is OK, so there’s nothing to be worried about, but it does remind me of some great Earthquake prints and posters we’ve got on Zazzle that are worth sharing. Check out some of these historical posters from the quakes that have rocked San Francisco and the greater Bay Area in the past…

Zazzle and Artsprojekt at SXSW 2009

March 27, 2009


My first post!! I’m Joyce, I work with Music and Entertainment partners at Zazzle. The Z and Artsprojekt were stoked to participate in SXSW 2009 with our partners at Paste Magazine.


SXSW 2009 was a good ole time.  The bands were as always fanastic, and despite the recession woes coupled with the lovely flu funk which seemingly spread from the Film to Interactive into the Music festivals, SXSW 2009 was an amazing event.  Zazzle and Artsprojekt, along with our friends at Edun Live, sponsored the now annual Paste Magazine party featuring M Ward, Amanda Palmer, Passion Pit, my new favorites The Heartless Bastards, and many others.  With the recent closure of Blender, it is pretty compelling to work with a great music magazine that continues to grow its subscription base and business model.  Zazzle hosts the Paste store, and if you haven’t already checked out the Obamicon.Me program, you are definitely missing out.  Check out the posters below that we created for the participating bands.


As you can see in these photos below, the Paste event featured a line as far as the eye could see, and I didn’t even takes these shots at its peak!   Other Zazzle artists that participated at SXSW this year include: Solange Knowles, Shwayze, Tony Williams with GOOD Music event starring Kanye West, and even comedian Margaret Cho.


Can’t wait for next year!!

Spring and Spring Break

March 24, 2009

Spring and Easter are just around the corner and before I become a puffy faced allergy monster I thought I would tell everyone about the beautiful Easter cards, Easter postage, spring cards and spring postage we’ve got on Zazzle. They are great for sending notes and messages to loved ones letting them know you’ve survived the winter and will be out to visit them soon. See below for some of my favorites.

There is also something else spring is famous for and that’s the sun-filled vacation of students around the country known as spring break. Spring break is usually an event that students take time to study, write poetry, and do some deep soul searching while away from school…yeah and if you believe that I got a bridge I can sell ya… Check out some of the more “inspired” spring break t-shirts below. Note: you must be 18+ to read beyond this line.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

March 17, 2009

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all ye leprechauns out there! It’s a glorious day to be Irish and if you’re not Irish it’s a glorious day to pretend to be Irish (painting yourself green is a good start to blending in). Over at the Zazzle HQ we had a little St. Patrick’s Day Celebration a few days ago. It was full of corn beef sandwiches, chips and guacamole (we’re California Irish) and of course the most devilish of green drinks you can think of. It was a lot of fun and a great way for the staff to showcase some of their favorite contributor made St. Patrick’s Day T-shirts (those that forgot their shirts had green shirts by the end of the night anyway – seriously they were strong drinks….). Check out some of the pictures that are safe to be shared with the public…
