Create Your Own Products in an Online Marketplace.. Zazzle

Techstination feature for Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Create your own products in an online marketplace. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. The inspiration came from Dell with its on demand manufacturing...and Ebay....according to co-founder Bobby Beaver. The Web site is called Zazzle...and allows you to create everything from custom posters to pet clothing....for one time purchase...or to sell online....

"We have hundreds of thousands of resellers now that are creating and selling products on Zazzle. And actually, in the last year or two, the marketplace has become so strong that people are starting to make their full time income through Zazzle, which is really, really exciting to us. It was definitely one of our ambitions when we started and it's thrilling to see that start to come true."

Zazzle has competition from sites that offer print on demand products like CafePress. You can find us with the chance this week to win a FujiFilm I'm Fred Fishkin.
