Presidio Online Gift Shop Gets Facelift

preswrdprsOur On-line Gift Shop

The Tubac Presidio, in partnership with the world’s largest print-on-demand platform (Zazzle), launched our on-line gift shop in 2011. We have enjoyed this relationship and we anticipate nothing but greater success in the future due to the changes Zazzle implemented on July 1st. Our shop is now more streamlined and easier to navigate, creating an even better shopping experience for our visitors.

How It Works

Based on our historical photographs, maps and documents, we design  all of the products we offer in our shop. These items range from t-shirts and mugs to postcards and cell phone cases. New products are added periodically like laptop sleeves and water bottles. We earn a small commission on every product we sell, all of which goes directly to the Tubac Presidio Park in aid of its preservation efforts.  Zazzle prints and ships the purchased product, usually within 24 hours and with a no-questions-asked guarantee: if you don’t love it, they take it back.


Contributing Artists

We have been fortunate enough to benefit from the gracious generosity of our contributing artists, who have allowed us the privilege of using a sampling of their artwork or photography in our designs. Alice Keene, Roberta Rogers, Richard Lasley and William Ahrendt have our deepest thanks for the added appeal they bring to our little shop!

How You Can Help

The Tubac Presidio Park is a cultural and historical treasure. If you would like to support efforts to preserve the Park, you can do so in two ways.

1. Purchase something! Use our link to browse in our Gift Shop. You may find something you like. Or use our Zazzle link (using this link ensures we will receive remuneration for referring you and does not increase the price you pay) to shop in its multitude of shops featuring art and designs from around the country as well as from around the world.

2. Contribute a photograph or a work of art. Have you taken a lovely photograph of the local flora or fauna, the local scenery or of something else of local interest? Perhaps you are an artist with something to share? Once you donate an image, we do not own it. You are free to sell it, post it, or reprint it elsewhere. It will always remain yours. We would like to credit you but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that is okay with us. By donating, you would help us expand our appeal and our inventory. We would greatly appreciate your gift. Interested? Contact our shop designer, Cindy, via email for details. (P.S. You will not be added to any sort of mailing list or volunteer list.)

How to Add a Photo to ANY item in the Tubac Presidio Park Online Gift Shop


A number of our items in the Tubac Presidio Park online gift shop (hosted by Zazzle) are offered as a template.  A space is provided for you, the purchaser, to upload a photo from your computer and incorporate it into the design.  You have now co-created a one-of-a-kind item for purchase by you and no one else!  (Circled area in the illustration shows where to upload your photo.  Click ‘change’ and follow the prompt.)







It is also possible to add a photo to an item without the provided template.  This second illustration (left) shows a greeting card which offers a text template but no photo template.  To add a photo, click the orange  ‘Customize it’ button visible below the picture of the card itself. You will now be on the customization page for this greeting card (3rd illustration below).  

Let’s say you would like to add a photo to an inside page of this card picturing the intended recipient of this birthday card.  Click the ‘view’ of this page shown in the row of images below the large picture of the greeting card. It will be the page view that contains the text ‘Happy Birthday” and circled in white in illustration below. 






Now (illustration below) you will see the ‘Happy Birthday’ page shown in the main image area in place of the front of the card which features artwork. ( Whatever you see in any particular view is exactly what will be printed on the product when you click ‘Add to Cart”, so be sure you like what you see when you are done with any customizing you do on a product.)  Now you are ready to click the white ‘Add images’ button below ‘customize it’ (circled in gray in the 4th illustration to the left).  The fifth illustration shows what pops up on the screen.  Follow the instructions.  Illustration number 6 shows your photo on the page.  We must now size and position the photo and customize the text so that everything looks good.


  Using the tools labeled in illustration 7 (below), we can move the photograph or text; we can increase or decrease the size of the photograph or text; we can change the font or color of the text.  Experiment with these tolls until you like the result, which in this case, is shown in illustration 8 (last illustration).





The final product is a custom Greeting card with beautiful artwork on the front and a very personal greeting on the inside.  Choose the number of copies you wish to order and click ‘Add to Cart’ and you are finished!  Fun to do and sure to please, customization is what put Zazzle on the map.  The Tubac Presidio Gift Shop is hosted by Zazzle, thus enabling us to offer these same tools to our customers and supporters.

 Stuck, Confused, or Unhappy with your Progress?

What is Zazzle Black?

Click Here

     Similar to Amazon Prime, Zazzle Black allows our customers to make purchases without the high shipping costs that we have all experienced.  I am very excited about Zazzle Black because it neutralizes one of the main reasons shopping online is sometimes considered impractical.

     Previously, Zazzle offered free economy shipping on orders over $50.oo as long as no other discount or sale code had been used.  With Zazzle Black, you may take advantage of sales and discounts and still receive free shipping, and the shipping method is standard rather than the slower, untrackable economy class shipping.

    A great deal for $9.95 per year, with a 30 day free trial thrown in!  At that price, Zazzle Black has paid for itself on your second order.  An upgrade to 2nd day shipping is available also for $39.95.

The Tubac Presidio Park On-line Gift Shop is well on track to becoming a viable enterprise.


On offer at the shop are t-shirts and other apparel, coffee and travel mugs, greeting cards, postcards and postage, tote and grocery bags, mini speakers for laptops and cell phones,  iPhone cases, posters and prints, as well as magnets, key chains and other assorted gift items.  Historical photographs, maps, and documents provide the basis for many of the unique images found on our products.

Contributing Artists

We are so very fortunate to have four outstanding contributing artists associated with the shop:  Roberta Rogers, watercolorist; Richard Lasley, painter and illustrator; Alice Keene, photographer; and William Ahrendt, painter.  Thanks to their generosity we are able to offer beautiful prints of their work as well as other items featuring their work.  Their contributions add another dimension of color, design, and imagination to our product lines, and we are deeply grateful.

Our Mission

Preserving the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park is our mission and finding ways to raise money is critical to our success as we strive to keep this cultural treasure open for everyone to explore and enjoy.  All proceeds from your purchases at the on-line gift shop go directly to funding this effort and will be greatly appreciated.  Another way to help our cause is to contribute a photo, recipe, or artwork for use  in the on-line gift shop.  Local participation plays a huge part in our plan for success!

Local Photographs Wanted

We would like to see your local photograph, and perhaps use it on a Tubac Presidio Park postcard, mug, or t-shirt.  Email your photo to with your name and information on the photo’s subject matter.   If we are able to use your photo, we will email you a link to our new product featuring your photo and a ‘by-line’ crediting you as the photographer will be placed in the item description box (along with any other pertinent info you provide).

Local Family Recipes Wanted

We would like to feature foodie postcards for the upcoming holidays and we are in need of local or family recipes.  If you can help, please email your recipe, name, and pertinent info to (a scan of a recipe would be an easy and quick way to upload it for emailing).  Send a photo of your dish also, if you happen to have one.  You will be credited, and we will send you a link to our new product featuring your recipe.  Our holidays will be merrier thanks to you.
