Hello Designers!

With summer in full swing, it can be hard to think about the kick off of the new school year - but it's less than two months away!

While the need for back to school designs is not large, there is room for new and trending designs.

Top product types needed include:
-- Binders
-- File Folders
-- Labels
-- Apple Watch Bands
-- Backpacks
-- Contour Stickers
-- Lunch Boxes
-- Water Bottles
-- Signs and Banners (example: Welcome Back! Or, My Kid Is Going to First Grade!)

Here are a few inspiration slides from our merchandising team!


Thank you!

Hi Designers!

Mother's Day is almost here! While we are so excited to celebrate all Mamas this weekend, on the content side, we are also looking ahead to our next special moment of celebration to ensure we have all products necessary to also show our Dads out there some love.

In preparation for Father's Day, our merchandising team has put together a few inspiration slides I'm excited to share, that capture trends / themes / product types we are focusing on this year.

An important note:
We strive for inclusive and diverse experiences on Zazzle so all feel welcome and seen - let’s be sure our cards and gifts reflect this both in stock photos and design. In addition, let's make sure we are also celebrating bonus dads, stepdads, grandpas, uncles and pet parents!

Feel free to post your products in this thread to show us what you might already have or have come up with.

Thank you so much for your hard work!

Love Team Designer

Topic: Blocking / Reporting Messages In Chat

Hi Designers!

We have an exciting new feature update to our chat functionality that we wanted to share and celebrate with you!

We have heard you that sometimes you receive spam outreaches via the chat function, or may receive messaging that is inappropriate. We want to ensure this feature is used for good, and benefits YOU, so we have updates that have gone live that will help you report inappropriate or spam messaging.

When opening individual chats, you can click on the upper right hand "info" button and see a new variety of options. These options include "Delete Conversation", "Block User" and "Report User." The "Report User" function will send an automatic ticket to our CS Team to investigate inappropriate messaging and spam messaging. The "Block User" function will ensure a user is blocked from outreaching to you again.

See this feature in action here.

Thank you!

Hi Designers!

With vaccination rates increasing across the country, many are looking forward to the chance to celebrate their postponed nuptials with friends and family this year.

We realize that all the purchases that go into making a wedding come to life can feel overwhelming to many couples - especially in a post-pandemic era. Therefore, to allow for a bit less stress, we will be testing steeper discounts with a focus on wedding products in the weeks to come. We want to introduce new users to Zazzle in a risk-free manner and encourage them to continue to come back.

People want to celebrate. This is a year of new beginnings and coming together after so long of being apart. However, we know many were impacted in different ways throughout COVID, and financial impact was very real. We want to offer couples the chance to still celebrate their love and union, with high quality products and a price tag that doesn’t scare them away. We know you are passionate about this same goal. Inviting new customers in will allow the paper good industry to bounce back quickly and take steps toward a post-COVID future.

We wanted to be transparent around this test, and emphasize it is just that - a test! At the end of the day we know we need to continue to grow to service our customers, and our growth benefits our dynamic marketplace and community of designers as well. If we don’t see a positive return, we will pivot and experiment elsewhere (the true definition of innovation!)

Feel free to send questions or feedback our way at

Hi Designers!

Mother's Day is right around the corner, and we are looking for unique designs to make all Mamas smile on their special day.

Our merchandising team has put together a few inspiration slides I wanted to share, that captures trending themes / colors / products / company focuses.

Some additional pieces to note:
-- We are also looking for Mother's Day cards for daughters and daughters-in-law (from moms to their daughters and daughters-in-law who are now also moms too!)
-- From moms to daughters - please tag 'daughters mothers day' 'daughters first mothers day'
-- From moms to daughters-in-law - please tag 'for daughter in law on mothers day' 'mothers day cards for daughter in law'

Feel free to post your products in this thread to show us what you might already have or have come up with.

Thank you so much for your hard work!
