Topic: New Product Ideas - In Here

I'd like for some more choices in Archival paper, especially a satin/semi-gloss.

That's because the current matte paper has a lot less contrast than the poster paper. If I want the image to look the same on both, I'd need to adjust and upload a different version of the image.

Thanks for the confirmation on that; I may give it a try. I did get less excited when I realized that personalization wouldn't work on the self-hosted product pages. They end up as an intermediate step for the customer, who just has to click through to yet another page.

I had slightly more luck when I used PHP to read in a Zazzle product page, then modify it and display it on through own server. Quite a lot of the functionality worked. Unfortunately that wasn't quite enough Smile.

Can anybody confirm that this is for real? It's not encouraging that it's not hosted at Zazzle's site. But... local product pages!

It makes a big difference if your Store Builder site includes a lot of relevant content that isn't present at Zazzle. Without that the search engines (rightly) treat your site as nothing but an affiliate's repackaging of existing content.
Topic: Thank you for the new mug colors!

It takes 5 clicks per mug to change this setting, including accepting the Terms of Service (again). You can't mass edit them; you just have to grit your teeth and do them one at a time.

...or even more for my template mugs because they didn't have (and don't need) tags, which I guess are now mandatory.
