Zazzle is an American online marketplace that allows designers and customers to create their own products with independent manufacturers (clothing, posters, etc.), as well as use images from participating companies. Zazzle has partnered with many brands to amass a collection of digital images from companies like Disney and Hallmark.[2][3] Zazzle claims to have over 300 million unique products listed on the site.

Zazzle was launched from their garage by Robert Beaver, Bobby Beaver and Jeffrey Beaver, and went live in 2005.[4] The company received an initial investment of US$16 million in July 2005 from Google investors John Doerr and Ram Shriram,[3] and an additional investment of $US30 million in October 2007.[5] The site was recognized by TechCrunch as 2007's "best business model" in its first annual "Crunchies" awards,[6] and has been noted by industry experts, such as B. Joseph Pine, for its easy-to-use technology. In 2010, Zazzle was recognized as one of the "Hottest Silicon Valley Companies" by Lead411.[7] It is based in Redwood City, California.

Zazzle.com offers digital printing, and embroidered decoration on their retail apparel items, as well as other personalization techniques and items.
