Create Your Own Personalized Products At CafePress

CafePress logoThe wonderful people at CafePress gave me a coupon for $50 worth of products. They said I could choose anything I wanted.

I spent quite a while on thier site looking at things. They have a great many items to choose from. I finally decided to get something for my hubby and then see how much of the $50 was left.

He has been looking for a good coffee mug for a while. He doesn’t like the small coffee cups and the mugs you see at stores like Wal-Mart are too “pretty”.

He wanted a big mug. CafePress has those. I thought about getting one with a funny saying on it…but there was way too many to choose from and I liked too many of them. So I decided to get a customized one.

He has seen the mugs with kids or animal pictures on them and always said his “baby” would look good on one. So I uploaded a picture of our dog…and he now has this mug: My husbands CafePress mug.

He really liked it. The only problem is…he says it is too nice to actually use as a coffee mug. So he has it on diplay in our china cabinet instead.

I also got a custom t-shirt for me with the same picture on it. My husband tried to take it too. Not happening!

It is a really well made t-shirt and it looks good…the picture doesn’t look as pretty on it as it does on the mug though.

I am very happy with the way they both turned out. And you can put just about any picture you want on the items…so long as they fit in the design you choose.

You can just upload your own design too I think. These make wonderful gifts and the items got shipped me very quickly…so last minute shopping is not completely out of the question.

    While selecting picture I’ll try to pick one which will make my husband use that product but will not allure him to keep it as a showpiece :)

    The mug looks superb. I hope he liked it a lot. I like the way you personalized it to suit what he likes.

    Looking good, my only concern is that pictures will fade away on t-shirts. I tried to make some myself and after a few weeks of wearing them, the picture started to get off. I don’t know how well these are made of course, but I wouldn’t want to pay for something I can only wear for a few weeks.

      Well the t-shirt itself will last for a long time. It is really well made. I have no idea how long the picture on it will last…I have seen some pictures on t-shirts last a long time.

      If you turn it inside out before you wash it will last longer.
