Time to Head Back

July 30, 2013

Fun in the sun might still be going strong, but we’ve got other plans.

It’s that time of year again. The kids will be heading back to school before you know it. You can’t help but notice… store shelves that were once stocked full of summer gear are now full of school supplies. Kick off the school year right with some Zazzle merch that is too cool for school.

She blinded me with science…ok, maybe taking notes during a science lecture isn’t always that fun. But the notebook can be a different story:

Assignments, handouts, tests…it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of papers. Students can stay super organized this year with a binder that shows some character:

During the chilly fall and winter season, students need to stay warm and cozy. A fun hoodie always does the trick:

Work Hard, Play Hard – SVSL Championship and Tech Carnival at Candlestick Park

July 17, 2013

The folks who work here in Silicon Valley believe in working their butts off, but not forgoing playtime. We at Zazzle are proud participants, competing alongside other great teams from companies such as Yahoo and Tango, in the Silicon Valley Sports League Championship.

The grand event is being held today at Candlestick Park. The SVSL games, which include ultimate frisbee and flag football, have brought the spirit of competition to its fullest. They have also brought together what could be future business partners. While it is indeed fun and games, it is also a networking opportunity. Everyone wins.

The fun culminates with the Tech Carnival. We are sponsoring the dart booth. The carnival will offer plenty of excitement, including games and rides, prizes, live bands, food and BYOB. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Oh, and one more very important thing…SVSL has a Zazzle store! Check out the hats, shirts, stickers, and more. What better way to embrace the spirit of play than with some cool merchandise from the official SVSL Zazzle store?

Embrace Your Geekness Day

July 13, 2013

There are so many different kinds of geek; the math geek, the comic book geek, the bookworm, the brown-noser. They’re all brilliant kids who eventually grow up to become adults that rule the world – as the ultimate revenge, of course.

If you’re someone I just described, then CELEBRATE because today is your day! Embrace Your Geekness Day is upon us and what a better way to brandish your quirks than with the perfect accessory that says: “I’m as awesome as a prime number, and if you disagree, you’re a fraction of a human being.”

So spend today gifting geek-centric products to yourself and to your geek posse, starting with the cleverer-than-thou “Classically Trained” T-Shirt:

And in a nod to the reality that phones are the new calculator – unless you’re a super geek and only calculate with your mind – sport a customized Vintage Calculator on your iPhone 5:

LOTR geek? Keep a map handy that displays your favorite travel destinations, like Doriath and Fangorn. The (Middle) Earth is your oyster, with this meticulous Middle Earth Poster:

Live long and prosper fellow fanboys and girls! Until next year!

It’s National Ice Cream Month!

July 12, 2013

I scream, you scream, we all scream…and you know the rest! July is National Ice Cream Month. Seriously, could we ask for a better month? Heating up in the sun means cooling down with ice cream. Whether it’s vanilla, chocolate chip, or maple-bacon (mmm…bacon), celebrate your favorite flavor all month long.

If you are one to dabble in many flavors, you can officially call yourself an ice cream taste tester. Wear that title proudly:

Maybe you are an ice cream sandwich kind of person. Tempt yourself with this yummy looking phone case:

We don’t think there is such a thing as too much ice cream. If you don’t either, a little wall decorating might be in order:

All work and no play calls for an ice cream break. But if you can’t tear yourself away from the computer just yet, remind yourself with this mouthwatering mousepad:

All Things Nautical

July 11, 2013

Sailing…takes me away to where I’m going…

Ocean wind, salty air, sunny skies. Whether it’s for real or in your imagination, let the beauty of nautical design inspire you.

Got a beach house? Lucky you. Just a regular house? That’s good too. Give it a pleasant seaside vibe with some unique décor. May we suggest this gingham pillow, especially if you are feeling a little “crabby”:

Time for work, time for play, time to sail and get away. There’s a perfect time for everything. Let the vintage compass rose wall clock be your guide:

It’s time to live and have some thrills…it’s summertime!
