Cool Re: Zazzle is offering Dark T-shirts

Just curious, how are you printing the dark shirts and what type of quality are they?

Hi Burningquestions,

We are using digital printing to print on the dark shirts. Our new printing process chemically bonds the ink to the fabric using a white ink base. This ensures that the colors appear true even on dark fabrics. The print is fused to the shirt and doesn't have a "decal" feel as with heat transfer or screen-printing.

The best way to see the quality is to try it for yourself. So far, we're still in beta, but we and our customers have been happy with the quality in just about every case. If you aren’t satisfied for any reason, you can return your product for a replacement or full refund within 30 days.

Thanks,
JoshE, ZazzleTeam

"Chemically bonds"..."fused"...

You could just say "prints"

Thanks jdr. We've been so excited about the new process here I get a little carried away sometimes. In simpler terms, we are printing these digitally, using a white ink base under the colors.

Hey guys.
I just got an account at Zazzle and was trying to ask a question on your customer support page. I keep getting "Failed to deliver" messages back in my email.

What's up? How do we contact you guys?

Thanks.

Default Re: Zazzle is offering Dark T-shirts

I just got a sampling of my designs and have a few comments/questions.

First, the shirts themselves are very good quality. No problem there.
The designs on the white shirts look pretty good.
The black shirts, however, are another story. I'm not sure if I expect too much or what. The colors were MUCH less saturated than they should be.
Gradient areas (airbrushed effect) got quantized to either "on or off". (Is this me expecting too much here?)

Some of the designs on the white shirts are smaller than they should be. I have a 14 inch wide design that came out to about 8 - 9 inches. This happened on 2 different shirts. Do the designes get automatically made smaller on smaller sized shirts? There was plenty of room to make them larger.

And lastely: When ordering some of the women's sizes you get a warning that they run very small and you should order 2 sizes larger. My wife is 5 feet tall and not fat. She ordered a medium and it was too small. If a woman this small needs a large, that puts these shirts out of the running for large women. These are really children's sizes and should be stated so. OR, they should be more standard. I think there will be a lot of returns despite the warning.

I think most of this can hopefully be worked out. I am happy with the web site and the fast service. I'd like to do a lot of business with Zazzle.



Thanks.

Hi Michelle.

Good to hear a good review of Zazzle. As I said, I'm happy with them too but need to get those questions answered in order to get predictable results and feel that my customers are getting what they expect.
