Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by to read my review of my recent purchase of a customized Zazzle Throw Pillow Lumbar 13″ x 21″. I hope I can answer most if not all of your questions or concerns before you decide to order a pillow from
Zazzle. I will try to address as many aspects of my purchase experience and the actual product so things are easier for you to understand.
General Zazzle pillow product information
Zazzle offers two sizes of pillows 20″x20″ (square) and 13″x21″ (lumbar) that you can customize with your own photos and text, printed both on the front and back. Price is the same for both one or double-sided print! The fabric is made from 100% natural cotton fibers, which may result in irregularities. A synthetic-filled insert is included and it’s made in the USA.
Packaging and unboxing:
Now I’m going to highlight some details about the material and workmanship itself.
Print quality evaluation
You can clearly see that the print comes out lighter than my original. I think this has something to do with it being printed on this specific cotton material.
Very important to mention is that orange and red colors are being enhanced quite strongly. Look closely at the area below the “A” where the buildings get a stronger orange glow on the print, compared to the original.
The sharpness of the print is very good. I don’t think I could expect any better on this kind of material as it has its limitations due to the thread size in my opinion. The original image resolution I uploaded to Zazzle was 4296×2759 pixels which is 200 ppi (pixels per inch), recommended by Zazzle for this pillow.
I’m more than happy!
Production time for the pillow was 11 business days. My order wasn’t very time sensitive but if you need yours for a specific event, make sure you order it at least 3 weeks ahead!
The Zazzle pillows are not cheap, BUT they are very well made. Time will tell how this pillow will hold up but from my first impression it’s going to be with us for a while.
Delivery was flawless and fast. Product arrived (thankfully) in perfect shape. Production quality was better than expected.
I can highly recommend this customizable product from Zazzle to anyone who toys with the idea of bringing something more creative into their home decorating than simple prints etc.
Zazzle offers thousands of pre-made designs on pillows or you can just create your very own.
