Zazzle put out a great little  video on how to design thier new paper cups.  This is the first product with a conical backgroup image, so it's important to know how designing for that is different than designing for other full bleed images.

HTML Removed from Zazzle Product Descriptions Today

Sad to see the ability to put HTML in product descriptions go.  Here's what Zazzle announced Tueday  (click here for full announcement)...

Starting approximately Friday, March 4, HTML will not be accepted in the description field for any new products being published going forward. Beginning approximately Wednesday, March 23, existing HTML in product descriptions will be removed from the site. Rest assured that any initial text-only paragraph will remain in your product descriptions, with only HTML removed.

If you have products which currently use HTML in their descriptions, we suggest that you review these products to save any information you may wish to keep related to the HTML used for your own reference, and/or remove this HTML yourself to ensure that your product descriptions will display exactly how you would like them after this update.
