The small staff here at The Square is very, very happy to announce that Sacred Square now has a store on Zazzle.com! Yes, it’s true. Baba Ram Yum Yum, Fu Wang and Wolf Girl have worked diligently to upload and create loads of posters, tee-shirts, smart phone cases and other stuff that can now be purchased on Zazzle.
For those of you who don’t know what Zazzle is, and quite frankly I didn’t until a few months ago, it’s basically a place where you can upload your art and designs and have them printed on a wide range of items. You can also peruse the work of others and buy that stuff if you so desire. Prices are very reasonable and from reading the thousands of reviews, quality and customer service seem very top notch. Even if you don’t have any desire for something from The Square, you may want to check into this for your other needs. If Zazzle doesn’t have what you’re looking for in terms of a product, you can try the similar service of CafePress which I’ve used in the past to create one of-s. I’d tell you to go ahead and register an account because they do send out some pretty good coupon deals.
I know it’s taken us a while to get to this point. Frankly it was a bit of a debate as to whether or not we wanted to move into the world of commerce. It often seems that consciousness and commerce should be removed from one another much like that old stand by, church and state. You can’t “buy” consciousness or enlightenment. However, you can “buy” things that inspire you to think about it, live more consciously or just remind you of it. So after sharing this work and listening to all the wonderful people who have encouraged and asked for this kind of thing, well, it became apparent that sharing the art of The Square would best be served by making it available beyond just the digital realm of the computer screen.
If there’s a particular combination of art and a product you’d like, but don’t see it available, just contact me and I’ll put it together for you.
So please feel free to use the link below to go take a look at what’s already there. We’ll be adding stuff like mad fiends going forward. And while selling posters and such on Zazzle or other like-minded sites won’t make us wealthy like Peter Max, it may just manage to pay a few of the bills. And that my friends, would always be a welcomed thing.
Here’s the link to Sacred Square on Zazzle
If you’d like to peruse all of what’s there, use the “Browse This Store” categories on the left hand side of the page. Also, you’ll want to change the Content Filter below the Browse section from Safe to Off.
And here’s just a small sample of the stuff that’s already up…
iPhone, iPad and Samsung phone and tablet cases…
And T-Shirts… Any design can be placed on any type of shirt, you can the color, style and gender…
and of course poster prints… they do look elegantly psychedelic when framed, lol…
and some stash boxes and even a couple of mugs for the morning brew…
NOTE #1: You can adjust the “Content Filter” once you’re in Zazzle to display items from “G” to “R” rated content. It’s on the left hand side at the bottom of most pages. For example, while most of the stuff available from The Square carries a “G” rating and will automatically be seen by everyone, some of the mushroom and marijuana images carry a “PG13” rating.
NOTE #2: As for poster sizes, most will not let you change the size because I want to be sure you get the best, high resolution print. However, you can frame any of them and they look elegantly psychedelic.
From all of us here at The Square, thank you all for your support, encouragement and love! This wouldn’t exist without you.
Yours in making things a little more beautiful each and every day,
