Let’s face it. Zazzle’s not the ideal solution for ZPG. If you’re fortunate to be near a ZPG dealer you can just go and buy one of their fabulous shirts for a mere $20 + applicable taxes. But a lot of you folks aren’t near any ZPG retailers. So you suffer and pay some god-awful confusing $27.82 9/10ths price plus inflated shipping and applicable taxes and by the time you got the package, wrapped in the carcass of a dead baby seal for all we know, you were pretty much over ZPG and never wanted to see us again.
This is a very un-ZPG process. We like simple. We like recyclables. And we like straightforward. So in the next month or so, ZPG will be ridding ourselves of Zazzle once and for all, and shipping out shirts ourselves.
What this means
Since I have not decided to invest $18,000 on an on-demand t-shirt printing set-up and our warehouse space (closet) is a little too committed to flannel from my 90′s grunge era to match the product depth of Zazzle’s offerings, this is going to mean our selection will be diminished. So consider this fair warning, if your biological clock has been screaming at you to buy that 53 Miles Per Burrito onesie, you better do it now, baby or no baby.
However, if you’re one of the majority who just wants a nice looking t-shirt with one of our designs on it, you should be happy. The new shirts will be printed on nice, fitted tees. The Zero Per Gallon design will be on a classic Blue, and the 53 Miles Per Burrito on a hot little black number. Domestic shipping will be less than with Zazzle, and they’ll come in Polyelofin, which is recyclable (depending on where you’re located). I’ll even throw in a sticker or two. And when we get these freaking awesome shirts in, they’ll be even cheaper than the cheap ones on Zazzle.
Keep watching, because between now and then I might just offer a pre-order deal. In the meantime, buy that Zazzle merch you’ve been eying before it’s discontinued.
