If you missed the new tops and t-shirt styles, the pretty but practical wallets or those gorgeous scarves, head back to part one. Otherwise, stick with me and cast your eyes over these other goodies from this popular print-on-demand store.
Coming right up are some leggings that will show off your own sense of style, a sweet custom candy tin for any memorable occasion (or just because), plus a whole new range of watches for adults and kids.
Right then, walk this way and show off those legs of yours in some trendy leggings. Customize them with a big, vibrant, head-turning design. Or keep it small and subtle. Words, images or both. One log or two. The only limit is a tall, thin vertical design area. You’ll struggle to upload a photo and get it to fit nicely, but in any case you probably don’t want a boxy motif for the leggings. I went with flowers.
I haven’t made many leggings yet and these ones aren’t customizable, but in any case I think it might be easier to create these with words rather than images. Assuming you want words on your leggings. Otherwise, there’s already a huge number of ready-made designs to choose from.
So, they come in 12 different shades. While certain colour combinations look better together, I’m trying to stick with a single design: my pearl gemstone flowers. As you will see, a pale design doesn’t work well with pale fabrics, especially the Heather Grey. Treat this just as an example of what not to do on that particular shade! Remember, on paler fabrics white areas of the design are made transparent, which is why this washed-out effect happens.
1. Asphalt | 2. Black | 3. Brown | 4. Camel
5. Eggplant (aka Aubergine) | 6. Forest | 7. Heather Grey | 8. Imperial Purple
9. Navy | 10. Purple | 11. Red | 12. White
So that’s the leggings. Pretty snazzy, and definitely a unique gift for us girls.
The cool new candy tins causes a lot of excitement when they came out. They do make a perfect keepsake gift for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers and any other sweet celebration.
Funny thing is, I haven’t made any yet. There’s plenty of choice among the already-created ones though, and I’ve chosen here an example from a wedding collection.
If you have a sweet tooth, this product deserves your full attention. What I didn’t know was that it comes with a choice of 18 delicious jelly bean varieties, plus a mixed option. For jelly bean haters (or mint lovers) you can alternatively fill it with mints.
The tin comes in 6 styles. Unfortunately one of those styles (a white/silver bean-shaped one) isn’t auto-adjusting nicely in the preview, so I’m just going to show you 5 of them. The designer has added example names in the template — you would of course replace these with your own.
A Zazzling friend (and regular reader) was also tempted by this cute gift idea. She made a personalized photo gift which, as you can see here, is a great way to share a favourite photo and remember happy times with loved ones.
Got some time? You’ll want to spare a second or two to look at the new watches available on Zazzle. As with all products, pick a cool design from the marketplace or create your own.
Some designs include a ‘clock face’ of numbers, others don’t. The children’s designs and some adult designs have a numbered bezel so if you can’t live without numbers there are still options. Also, you can often contact a designer and ask if they will add them — it’s something I would be happy to do for any of my customers.
Let me show you how the different styles look using my panda design watch. There are 8 style choices, but several of these have further options, making a total of 21 different watches to choose from.
By the way, the bright blue background won’t look ideal on all of these, but the point of this watch is that by clicking on Edit you can choose yourself a different background from the Zazzle palette.
