Mozilla Community Store

This morning, Mozilla and Zazzle announced a strategic partnership and the launch of the Mozilla Community Store!

At the Mozilla Community Store, folks can browse the gallery to shop from an array of community generated designs. Designs consist entirely of artwork supplied by Mozilla's worldwide community, with all designs available for customization on over 400 apparel products including t-shirts, sweatshirts and tank tops. To get things started, we've seeded the store with over 50 designs from the Firefox 3 t-shirt design contest, but anyone can start from scratch and add their own.
