Review – Review and Giveaway

zazzleLetterform_whiteWe are approaching a historically significant time – an election year. When ever an election comes along the pundits and commentators speak up and compare current elections to previous elections. There have been many historical elections in our history, but in my lifetime there is one election that rises above the others: Reagan/Bush – 1984.

If you are unfamiliar with this particular election let me refresh your memory. Ronald Reagan was the Republican candidate with his running mate/future Vice-President/President George H. Bush. Reagan carried 49 of the 50 states and it’s victory ranks 7th of all Presidential elections.

I am a nostalgic person, so instead of wearing a shirt supporting the current presidential nominees I decided that I want to go back what is perceived to be a simpler time – 1984. I began to look for a shirt that I could wear that was comfortable and would be adaptable to wear to the store or at home writing. I came upon and immediately knew that they would have what I desired.

Zazzle Reagan is not only a wonderful place to get your election related clothing but it is a great place to get anything printed your mind can create. Zazzle not only has pre-made and pre-printed products but they can also print your own designs. There are other sites that limit what you can print on, or create, but not Zazzle. This site allows you to create anything from t-shirts, guitar picks, flash drives, fabric, aprons, bumper stickers, beer koosies and blankets to name a few. I counted over 80 items that you can have a image or logo printed on, the only limit is your imagination (and copyright laws).

The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of, but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.

When I arrived at I began to click around to get a feel for what I might enjoy. I began to think of the upcoming election and went in that direction in my searching. I chose a shirt to remind me of that simpler time – “Reagan/Bush 1984“. I ordered a the pre-printed long sleeve shirt in X-large, as I wanted not only a comfortable fit but to allow for any shrinkage. My shirt came via United Parcel Service (UPS) in a simple and cost effective grey envelope. The shirt was nicely folded along with the receipt and 2 postcards – 1 advising about apparel care and washing instructions and one advertising their customization abilities. I like that they included instructions on washing and care. The shirt fits well and is very comfortable. The image is screen printed on the front and is a high quality and bright.

I was able to narrow down my choices and compare a couple different options, but not before spending almost a hour on the site looking around. What I really enjoyed about is that if they do not have what you are looking for pre-printed, the option to create it yourself exists. The items you can customize and personalize is really only limited by your own imagination.

I can not say if this coming election will be one for the record books but I can tell you that not matter what the outcome, I will be mindful of the past while looking ahead to the future, knowing that no matter who or what I support will be there!

    I had a friend personalize my Swiss army knife. She engraved my name in beautiful script on the blades. It took something very masculine and made it more feminine for me!

    Hard to say, I have a number of personalized things that I love. I think the Christmas ornament of a photo of my mother, my then boyfriend (now husband), and me all in ugly Christmas sweaters at her last Christmas.
