The second of my new Zazzle stores is called the Retropolis Travel Bureau – yet another agency (like the Retropolis Transit Authority) of the retro future. Give me enough time, and I could probably put together an entire New Deal for the Future That Never Was. 🙂
Like Ars Celtica, which I mentioned yesterday, I’ve taken advantage of a new product range to make some customizable items like business cards (check out the Airship Captain!), postcards, and greeting cards.
Something unique to the Travel Bureau, though, is a selection of retro-futuristic name tags. They’re also customizable, so their default label (“You can call me…”) can easily be changed to the name of an event – like a party or convention, for example – and even the names can be added, though you probably wouldn’t want that since all six tags on a sheet get the same text. I really enjoyed making these.
And also like Ars Celtica, there are some uber cool coffee mug styles and other items to choose from.
I had a great time customizing this store, including a “Tourist Info” page that’s basically the Travel Bureau’s newspaper. It’s got tourist advisories and the sort of news items you’d be likely to find in a community newsletter of this type. With mad scientists and space pirates thrown into the mix, of course.
