First and foremost, Zazzle is a company that's all about people...our employees, our customers, our designers and our partners. We believe that having extraordinary people is the greatest possible asset and sustainable advantage for a company. We began with an idea 10 years ago, and publicly launched our website in the summer of 2005. It's been a wild ride since then... and we've only just begun.
Our mission is simple: "To Enable Every Custom, On-Demand Product in the World On Our Platform." In other words, Zazzle, The Make Engine™, is creating both the tools and the marketplace for anything you can imagine - customized. Simple concept, but very hard to do! The good news: we're getting closer to this reality every single day. And we're having a blast doing it.
At Zazzle, our technologies are all about turning your dreams into reality. We're tackling some of the hardest technical challenges around. And we're not only developing cutting-edge software innovations, but also never-before-seen hardware and manufacturing systems.
Our products let you... be you! We're deeply passionate about providing you with an opportunity to be yourself through customization. And we're committed to offering the highest quality custom products in the world, in an ever-expanding array of categories.
Zazzlers are a passionate bunch. And we believe that anything is possible (ok, most anything). From PhD's in mathematics to national physics champions to professional artists and manufacturing gurus... we're all over the place but united by a passion to re-define commerce.

Zazzle has launched Zazzle Heart, a new initiative that is focused on sustainable work that drives positive change across the world. As part of this partnership, we’re launching our first African maker on the Zazzle Heart platform. Known as the LIFE Line sewing project based in Kenya, this group of amazing moms has created various products including bracelets and aprons for Zazzle. In fact, the Zazzle product development team travelled to Kenya to meet these amazing women and to collaborate on creative direction, design and implementation. Zazzle’s work with LIFE Line supports their mission to empower Kenyan mothers of special needs children to be self-sustaining. This new line of products are handmade in Kenya and sales of these products will directly benefit the Malaika Mums, many of whom have been shunned by society because of their special needs children.
At Zazzle, we want our customers to receive products that have soul, are made by extraordinary people, and live on a platform that supports independent designers and artists. By purchasing these items directly from LIFE Line, Zazzle is directly supporting these women. These entrepreneurial women are making each product by hand, which takes a tremendous amount of time. Then, thanks to the Zazzle platform, we’re able to offer customers the ability to add customization – anything from an image to text – onto the products directly.Continue reading press release »
