I'm proud to announce the next stage of the growth of our community. Club Chalamet now has select merchandise for sale at our own Zazzle store! With approval from the 'dynamic duo' in Venice today, I got the OK to make the store public! I am so excited to purchase some of these items myself which will serve as tangible keepsakes of the fan community we developed here together. For those not familiar with Zazzle, it's an online marketplace that allows designers and customers to create products with independent manufacturers. The specific items I have selected are items I know I will use. So there's nothing gimmicky or silly, just select clothing items and accessories that members and supporters of the Club Chalamet community may want to purchase to show team solidarity, while also showing the public your support for our favorite actor, Timothée Chalamet.
Please check out Club Chalamet Zazzle store and let me know what you think!

Oh God, no you didn't?! I may have to buy one just to have you pick me out from the sidelines at the "Dune" red carpet premiere in Los Angeles in December 2020 Haha. At least as you know that's my goal assuming there is a blockbuster LA premiere. And how could there not be with a film of this size. Very cool!
Oh one more thing! When you make a purchase, to get free delivery, consider enrolling in Zazzle Black which is an annual fee of $9.95 for FREE standard shipping on all items for a year, which is like 5-7 business days. You can enroll during your first order to get the 30-day trial. If after you order and before the 30 days is up, you can cancel. However, as more products become available at Club Chalamet Store (CCS), investing in Zazzle Black will give you free shipping for a full year. There is also the 2-day subscription program at $39/year. Unfortunately, these shipping fees are for US residents only. So if your shipping address is international, to take advantage of any shipping costs, consider buying all the products you desire in one order so that you just pay shipping once.
Hey all, chalametthegreat send me a question that is great and I want to answer it so that everyone knows the answer because I'm sure he's not the only one thinking it.
For the Club Chalamet merchandise such as tshirts, is there a way to add an image of Timothee? If so, I have no idea what would look good out of a thousand images. I was thinking a drawing or caricature. But what about Teenca's watercolor drawing of him that appears when she posts messages? I always thought that image was pretty cool. Anyways just a random thought.
When I reached out to obtain permission to open the CC Zazzle store, I informed them that I had no plans to use Timothée's images or likeness or his full name in selling of merchandise. They agreed it was fine to open the store with just using 'Club Chalamet' and they appreciated me asking. Even Zazzle has a policy that if you're trying to use a celebrity's image, Zazzle will need proof that the celebrity gives the store owner permission to use their likeness and name to profit from it. As you can understand, that is in place to protect the celebrity from strangers profiting off their image. Because we're a fan community of like minds, that's why it's called 'Club Chalamet'. We're not even a fan club for Timmy per se, just a fan forum club. The merchandise available for purchase is in the spirit of having members purchase items to have something tangible in support of Club Chalamet messageboard. If I sell anything, the profits from the sale is only between 5% - 10%, the rest goes to Zazzle and the manufacturer who produces the items. Even fan art is using Timmy's likeness to sell something and I cannot do that. And even if I were interested in a caricature, I would have to get permission from the artist and pay for the rights to use and sell their creation.
Too much red-tape, I want to keep this simple and fun.
Thanks, chalametthegreat, this is my favourite drawing related to Timmy, I love it. I've found it via pinterest. I was thinking of using or not a lot, because it's not my drawing. I couldn't find the "owner" via internet. In the end I started to use it, since a photo of a real person, who is not me, was very weird. It's a mixed solution, not a photo of a real person, it's a character who is acted by Timmy. If it is possible (it's not for the time being according to the previous post by Simone) to use a drawing/image of Timmy on CC Zazzle store's items, I will draw one, haha... I haven't been drawing for a long time, but I would give a try.

If anyone has the talent to draw Timmy and want to create a t-shirt or something, there are ways you can make that item on your own as a personal gift and self expression and wear it, or make it as a gift for someone else to wear. But for the act of me SELLING through Zazzle, I can't do that.
Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that my CC Peach bag arrived today! I wanted to be the first to order it so that I could review it LIVE before anyone else bought it and confirm the quality of it.
Let me tell you, it's better than I expected. It's recycled Polyester making it a very smooth and soft surface. It's a large enough tote bag to carry your essentials, including a yoga mat, as I demonstrate in my photos. I love it and I'm so glad I designed it and it was made by a high quality manufacturer. I hope my testimony convinces you to buy one too. I'm taking this on my NYC in two weeks!
