Welcome to The Public Domain Review Shop! To help raise some funds for the project we have made some things to sell, returning a few select gems from their pixel-based existence back into the world of real objects from whence they once came. As well as a variety of beautiful straight up prints, we have also designed some special Public Domain Review branded items through which you can profess your love and support of our project to the outside world. Because we have readers from all over the world, and sadly not the time nor resources to set up a merchandise empire, complete with stock-rooms and fleets of packing minions, we have – at least for now – set up a modest store through the print on demand service Zazzle. As well as these print on demand products, we also plan on working with designers and artists to make more “intimately” made objects – such as the wonderful analog GIF player from Officina K – so please do get in touch if you are interested in partnering up.

Who makes the products? – The products have been designed by us and are being printed and sold, for the most part (apart from the Giphoscopes) through the California-based print on demand service Zazzle. As mentioned above we sadly do not have the time nor resources to set up a merchandise empire, complete with stock-rooms and envelope stuffers – we need to spend our time developing the website, not packing envelopes. So we looked for the best print on demand service to take care of all this for us and, after some deliberation, we decided on Zazzle. While there were lots of other candidates, Zazzle won us over with their international aspect – their many bases worldwide cuts down on the risk of import duty being incurred, a nasty surprise we were very keen to avoid (see next question!).
Is there a risk I will have to pay import duty on my delivery? Zazzle has a number of worldwide stores, so if you order through your local one, be that your actual country or from within the same “duty-free jurisdiction” (e.g. Eurozone), then you will not have to pay import duties and/or local taxes. If your package is being delivered “internationally”, that is, to a country different from the Zazzle site and outside any relevant “duty-free jurisdiction” then unfortunately there is a small chance, depending on order value and destination, that you will have to pay import duty on the delivery.
Do you deliver to my country? Zazzle deliver to more than 200 countries worldwide – see here for the full list.
When will my order arrive? Will it arrive in time for Christmas? – Please pay attention to the delivery estimates which will be provided on the Zazzle site when you go to checkout. It is probably also a good idea to allow a few days extra leeway for good measure to account for the usual Christmas postal congestion! For other non-Zazzle made products (i.e. the PDR Tote Bag) there will be a normal lead time, at the upper end, of around 3 weeks, depending on delivery destination.
What if I am not happy with the quality? – We are really sorry if this is the case. As with all print on demand services, the printing can, very occasionally, sometimes go a little wrong: things get out of align, machines slip, etc. In rare cases where such mistakes slip through the quality control you can contact Zazzle for a full refund – see here for more details.
