Thanks to the Internet, you no longer have to have an in to get custom-designed anything — not when you have sites like Zazzle!
Zazzle lets you custom design just about anything (they go way beyond the basic T-shirt) — I'm especially intrigued by the US postage stamps, neckties, and sculptures. My boyfriend is already hard at work on designing a new skateboard deck. It's as easy as uploading a design and picking colors.
Not that great of a designer? Inflate someone's ego and buy something from the thousands of products designed by members of the Zazzle community. And yes, that means you could also make money by selling your designs on Zazzle!
