Robert Beaver and his two sons founded Zazzle.com, a service which enables users to create their own products. Zazzle.com users can create virtually anything, from customized t-shirts to postage stamps. Users can also recieve a commission on products that they sell and design themselves. Zazzle is funded primarily by Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers and Sherpalo Ventures, who in 2005 provided $16 million in seres A funding.
Major competitors include Cafepress, Spreadshirt. However, Zazzle's patented color print technology allows them to manufacture multicolored items, especially t-shirts and other clothing items, for pennies at a time.
