Whether you’re looking for a meaningful gift for any occasion, personalized goods are the way to go. Especially for the grandparents. You know how they are about showing off their loved ones, and with a custom t-shirt, they can brag about their grandkids without even pulling out their wallet.
That’s what I was thinking about when I designed two custom t-shirts on Cafe Press for Emma’s grandmothers. Of course I was having internet connection troubles that day, so I had to create my design a few times, but I must say it did improve each time I worked on it. The designer is pretty basic with shapes and clip art, and I wish there was more to it. I’d like to be able to say, turn Emma’s photo into the shape of a heart, for instance, but there wasn’t a way to do that.
I managed to create a very nice-looking shirt, and when I went to checkout, I noticed that you also have the ability to print on the backside of the shirt as well, so I figured, why not? The front reads, “I ♥ Grandma”, and the back has another ♥ above the name, “Grandma”. So now there’s no mistaking these grannies. Here’s a snapshot. What do you think?
I’m so happy with our mother’s day gifts to Emma’s grandmothers, and so are they! As always, the turnaround time with CafePress was phenomenal. The items arrived within a couple of days – I’m always amazed.
GIVEAWAY! One lucky reader will receive either an item from the Father’s Day collection or a custom shirt (like what I did for Mother’s Day).
