Zazzle, a Redwood City, Calif. company that gives users a way to personalize products like apparel, posters, U.S. Postage and greeting cards online, and then sell them, has acquired Confego for an undisclosed amount.
Confego, based in Berkeley, Calif., lets big companies like Reebok customize apparel, bags and footwear from the ground up using Confego’s software. In a statement, the companies said Confego has “perfected” the manufacturing and fulfillment process, allowing delivery of custom shoes in just one week, as opposed to the three to five week lead time currently provided from similar vendors.
Zazzle has raised $16 million from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Ram Shriram’s Sherpalo Ventures.
Here is the statement.
