Whether someone wants a custom T-shirt, calendar, or iPhone case, Zazzle helps them get it. The online site helps customers express their personalities through original creations. Customers first select a template, such as a blank mug or even a skateboard, and then add their own designs. They can then choose to upload photos to items; for example, invitations to a child's 9th birthday party can sport pictures of that child's 8th birthday wish not coming true. Zazzle is also a hub where artists can sell their designs for customers to use on blank templates.
