Inspired by Von Glitschka’s simply awesome Zazzle store, where I just recently bought his Tickles “Evil Clown” t-shirt, I thought I’d see how opening a store of my own would go. You never know, right?
Though before I did that, I thought I should wait to check out the quality of Zazzle’s products and overall service. I didn’t have to wait long – just 5 days after ordering I received my shirt (and I’m down in Oz). I was also pleasantly surprised at the high quality of their products, especially considering their very competitive pricing.
Anyway, I’ve compiled a few products for you below, though the best thing about Zazzle is that you can customise the product to anything you want – ie. you keep the same graphic and then you can change its sizing, spacing, alignment or even change the product itself to a women’s hoody or mouse pad, among hundreds of other products.
If you want to take a look at my store, click here or click on any of the shirt photos below. All the shirts are on sale from a small $12.95.
Sultan Of Sultans
‘Sultan of Sultans’ means King of Kings and is a mixture of elements relating to this theme. Lion (King of the Jungle), Crown (Symbol of Leadership) and Space (King Of The Universe).
This little robot is created entirely out of the Excelsior typeface. I recently wrote a tutorial for Layers Magazine on how to create your own font monster if you’re interested. There is an angled version (1st pic below) or a straight version (2nd pic below). Remember you can change the t-shirt colour to anything you like! You can also change the sizing, alignment, etc.
Just Creative Design Logo
This one I am really curious about but I thought I’d chuck it in anyway. Judging by some of the emails (one marriage proposal so far), you just never know.
Love Christ, Love Life
Although I am not a Christian, this was a recent piece of work I completed for University for an advertising campaign promoting the life of Jesus (as above). After I shared it on Twitter I had a couple of requests to actually make it into shirts, so I thought why not. Here are a few combinations below:
The below version features a small logo on the back, as well as a larger version of the “Love Life” text on the front.
This little character, like the Excelsior Bot, is created entirely out of Comic Sans. The idea is that he is saying “What!? Comic Sans?”.
Below is a version without the text.
This is a minimalist retro t-shirt design of an electric lightning bolt coming down from the skies above.
Similar to the other Love Life shirts, but without the cross.
My Zazzle Flash Store
You can scroll through the products using the Flash application below.
If you find anything else in my portfolio you would like made into a product or if you have any requests at all, just let me know and I will put something together for you. Anyway, interested to see how this goes.
If you have your own store, tips or suggestions, please share in the comments below. Thanks!
