I received 3 products from Zazzle today and the envelope please…
– Three Mugs, each with a different picture
Terrible results. One was greenish, the other two magena-ish. (no such word but there should be). [I looked at the cups again the next day. They look even worse. I’ve removed the b&w mugs from the zazzle store]
– Dark T-Shirt with B&W Image
Perfect. No color shifts. Very beautiful.
– Notecards (two different sets).
Perfect. I mean perfect.
If you end up ordering from my print store, you’ll also get one of the notecards. For now, I’m going to have to remove the mugs. I don’t know why this happens except that everything prob. gets done by different manufacturers. Overall, the record with notecards and greeting cards has been best. The T-Shirts have never had any color shifts. It’s just that I didn’t care for the way they looked on light material, which is why I went for the dark fabric (which is recommended by Zazzle).
I’m sure that someone else can say that they’ve ordered a lot of mugs from Zazzle and that they’ve all turned out well. But black and white? It’s always tricky. I’ll probably do some mugs again with various tints and color. Printers are almost always better at getting color right as opposed to b&w.
As a note, all of the products were made with the same image files. They rez down without any artifacts being introduced. One other note, just really for myself, of the various posters I did – the one that was most poster like was what they call Bronze level which is on UV mat.
