Zazzle Comparison and Review



Pros:

  • Easy to upload design
  • Can create your design from scratch with their editor
  • Faster shipping options available: 1-Day, 2-Day

Cons:

  • Free PDF proof not available

Conclusion:

Zazzle offers low-priced paper marketing materials and signs and banners, average-priced stationery, and high-priced promotional materials. Zazzle does not offer many signage materials, but they do offer posters. Zazzle lets you upload and print an existing design, and they also offer predesigned templates and a design tool to help you create your design for some products.  We found it easy to upload a design, but they do not let you download a blank template of their paper products that can help you with uploading your design. Zazzle does not offer free PDF proofs of your design or free paper samples, which we consider to be market standards.

We found their customer support to be high quality. Zazzle has a standard shipping time of 4-7 business days, which is faster our Market Standard shipping time of one week.

Design and Printing

Zazzle lets you upload your existing design and have it printed. You can upload your existing design in the following formats: JPEG, PNG, PDF, Adobe Illustrator, GIF, and TIFF. It was really easy to upload our design, and you can create your own design using their design tool for all stationery products.

Zazzle uses digital printing instead of offset printing. Offset printing is a process in which a plate makes an inked impression on a rubber-blanketed cylinder, which in turn transfers it to the paper. Offset printing offers higher image quality, is more cost effective when ordering large quantities, and is better for larger prints. Digital printing is a process in which the data and images are printed directly from the computer onto paper. It has shorter turnaround time, is more cost effective when ordering small quantities, and is better for customized printing.

Letterhead

You can order letterhead through Zazzle in quantities ranging from 10-5,000, which is better than our Market Standard minimum order size of 250. For 10 letterheads, it costs $8.00. As you order larger quantities, your price per letterhead gets significantly cheaper. Zazzle’s letterhead paper options include matte finish, embossing, and recycled paper.

Greeting Cards

You can order greeting cards through Zazzle in quantities ranging from 1-2,000, which is much better than our Market Standard minimum order size of 250. One greeting card costs $2.95. As you order larger quantities, your price per greeting card gets significantly cheaper. Zazzle’s greeting cards come with a glossy finish, and they offer double-sided printing for free.

Envelopes

You can order envelopes through Zazzle in quantities ranging from 10-5,000, which is better than our Market Standard minimum order size of 250. 10 envelopes cost $8.00. As you order larger quantities, your price per envelope gets significantly cheaper.

Shipping

Zazzle’s standard shipping time is 4-7 business days, which meets our Market Standard of one week. The standard shipping price is $7.95 for letterhead, greeting cards, and envelopes at their minimum order size. Shipping costs may vary with location. 1-business day and 2-business day shipping are also available for an additional fee.

Proofs & Samples

Zazzle offers free online image proofs, so you can see what your products will look like before you order, which meets our Market Standard. However, they don’t offer free paper samples (a pack of paper styles that are mailed to you and from which you can choose), which does not meet our Market Standard.

Additional Stationery

In addition to letterhead, greeting cards and envelopes, Zazzle offers address labels and invitations.

Customer Support

Zazzle offers customer support via phone and email. Phone support is offered Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST. We didn’t have to wait when we called customer support, and Zazzle’s email support wait time was 2 to 4 hours. Zazzle has really helpful support and even provided us links with answers to our questions. Zazzle offers a money-back guarantee, which meets our Market Standard.
