No, although templates may be something smarter than what I do - I just never tried it. I use a previous design, click on 'customize', change the image, adjust anything that it's needed, then save it as a new product, changing title/description/keywords accordingly.

I'm only small fry really, and I'm might not have the most streamlined method, but so far the best I've found is:
  • Make templates for everything you think you might sell.  I'm missing 100s of products, but realistically I think photos tend to sell best on paper products and electronics cases.  At least that's where they look best.
  • Put your new image on your templates.  I'm also picky about image placement (you have to be really or lots of your stuff will look rubbish) but some images I find I barely have to tweak one or two products, others I may have to tweak 20 or more, but that tweaking doesn't take long and you'd have to do it if you didn't use QC regardless.
  • Then onto the painful bit - title, keyworking etc.  This is the win for me with quick create, as this is only done once per image.

I do find zazzle buggy which is frustrating - eg if you missed ticking the ratings radio button it blanks all the fields when it reloads the page and doesn't give you a clear error message telling you what it's done (resulting in me wasting lots of time re-doing those products from scratch) - but as you get used to those you can create stuff pretty fast.

I created about 1000 products in the 2-3 weeks leading up to Christmas this way.  I don't know if that's heaps compared to everyone else but it felt like a lot to me and has already helped sales a little (well, a lot for me but again, I'm small fry!).  I'd love any suggestions where I've gone wrong or missed something though!
