Design Your Own Bumper Sticker (at Zazzle)

I have been designing and selling bumper stickers in the Zazzle marketplace for a few years through my Prose & Pix shop and I am still learning new things. Here is what to know about how Zazzle bumper stickers are produced and how to design your own bumper sticker, either for personal use or for sale, using the free e-commerce platform:

Q: HOW ARE ZAZZLE BUMPER STICKERS CREATED?
A: Find out from Charles Ohiaeri, Vice President of Operations at Zazzle (November 2015); watch the video or read the video notes below (transcribed for educational purposes):

Maker Moment - Zazzle Bumper Stickers:
> The process begins when a customer places an order on the Zazzle website.

> Customers can choose from a pre-designed bumper sticker in the marketplace or start from a blank template to make a custom design.

> Once the order is placed on the website, the information is sent to the manufacturing division where the production process begins, at Zazzle’s state-of-the-art printing facility in [Reno, Nevada].

> Printing the bumper stickers is done using a high-speed digital process that allows for complete control by the print technician, so that individual bumper stickers can be printed consecutively for bulk orders of multiple designs.

> In the post-production process, each bumper sticker is coated with Mylar for protection from the elements; i.e., weather, U.V., other bumpers.

> Each bumper sticker is individually cut to size with the liner on the back for the customer to peel off when ready to stick.

> After coating and cutting are complete, bumper stickers are inspected by hand for print quality and order fulfillment accuracy.

> Zazzle bumper stickers are packaged by hand and mailed to customers around the world from Zazzle's printing facility in [Reno, Nevada].

PRINTING FACILITY RELOCATION: Zazzle relocated its printing facilities from San Jose, California, to Reno, Nevada, in 2017; https://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/news/2017/04/26/zazzle-layoffs-manufacturing-san-jose-reno.html


Q: HOW CAN I DESIGN MY OWN BUMPER STICKER AT ZAZZLE?
A: Find out in the video tutorial below from Zazzle; it demonstrates how to create your own design on a product template using Zazzle’s design editing tools. BONUS: There is an interactive time-stamped menu in the YouTube video description box that shows every topic covered with a link to that exact spot in the video.



Q: WHERE DO I GO TO DESIGN MY OWN BUMPER STICKER AT ZAZZLE?
A: Go to Zazzle.com/custom/car+accessories and scroll down the page to find the bumper sticker; it was the first product listed when I searched for it, as shown in the screenshot below. NOTE: Bumper stickers have been removed from the 'stickers' listing under the Craft & Party Supplies category and moved to the 'garage & automotive' listing under the Home category.


Q: WHERE CAN I BUY PRE-DESIGNED BUMPER STICKERS AT ZAZZLE?
A: Visit the bumper sticker section of my Prose & Pix shop to find original stickers featured in the video below along with many more; or search for the term 'bumper stickers' in the search box on any Zazzle page to find stickers from designers all over the world.
