Custom Blankets For Great Gifts

Monday, December 3, 2012
In a day and age when everyone is struggling to express themselves in a personalized way it is nice to know that there are personalized gifts out there to fit every one of those individual's styles. There are many companies that offer customized gifts. A person could customize anything from coffee mugs to backpacks to mouse pads. Custom blankets can even be found when searching through the offerings of many online store fronts.
Coming up with gift ideas for everyone on the holiday gift list is a daunting task. There are so many people with so many different tastes that it can be difficult to simplify the holiday gift giving process. Now there is a way to make everyone on the list happy, whether they are naughty or nice. With custom blankets recipients can stay snug as a bug in a rug with a personalized sentiment to remind them of the giver each time they curl up.

Each company that offers customized gifts works just a little differently. There are some companies that say they "customize" your item, but what they really do is give you a variety of templates from which to choose. They may have anywhere from 20 to 200 designs for the buyer to look over. The only thing that is truly custom about the purchase is the name or wording that the buyer inputs on the website. Sometimes companies that offer these types of products may have options where the buyer can upload their own logo or graphics for an additional charge.
There are many things to consider when looking to order a custom-made product. What if the buyer finds a flaw upon receipt of the custom product? What if there is a misprint in the wording? Make sure to check the return policies and procedures. Some companies will not allow the return of any customized product if the customer approved the design online. They may, or may not, allow the return of the product if there is a flaw in the materials but not in the design. The designs are generally approved when the buyer clicks on the final approval button and confirms the order. This should all be listed under the FAQ section of the company's website if it is not listed as the "return policy" in an easy to locate spot on the site.
The file format required for any uploaded graphics should be specified clearly in the company's listed procedure and terms. Different companies take different types of files. It is not possible to upload a .bmp file when .jpg is the only type supported by the customizing company's website. The customer needs to have the file uploaded in the correct format prior to trying to upload to expedite matters.
Different rules exist to merge a graphic in a customized product. The image, or images, can be woven into the fabric in the case of photo throws, or screen printed on the item. The image file can even be converted to a form able to be embroidered on the item chosen by the customer.
