CafePress T-Shirt Review

I had a wonderful chance to review something from CafePress. I found it to be a challenge to pick something out. They have so much to choose from!

I decided to go with creating custom t-shirts.

Since Mica will be eight in a few months, and Isaak just turned five I made them age appropriate shirts.

Here are my designs that I created in Illustrator. I made their ages in the g of each shirt.

I love personalized gifts for any holiday; like for Father's Day, it's coming up soon! They have a lot of different t-shirts and sizes to pick from. I love that they have many sizes to choose from. Many of the age t-shirts that are out there already are too small for my long torso kids.

Create your own (t-shirt) - I chose to create their organic t-shirt. It was a little more cost wise, but on sale. I love how soft they are!

Here's a few things about CarePress' organic t-shirts:
  • 100% organic cotton jersey
  • 4.3 oz. 100% ultra-fine combed organic ring-spun jersey
  • Unisex design looks great on boys and girls
  • Reinforced shoulder construction maintains shape through multiple washings
  • Not intended for sleepwear

When I uploaded the designs I had a hard time getting a teal color. Instead I went with green and blue. The boys like both of those colors. Uploading images on CafePress was super easy. I had no problems at all. They take high resolution jpgs.

Isaak giving a high 5.

Mica wouldn't smile. He would however act like a crazy 8.

I was given a $40 gift code. I did have a difficult time getting the code to go through. It showed that I had a code, but only for a $0 amount. 

I tell you what though, I called them on a Saturday and their customer service was wonderful! She totally took care of it for me. I just love that their was someone to talk to on a Saturday!

They also didn't tax anyone living in Nebraska, which was nice! 

The shirts came much faster than I anticipated. I was thinking it would take awhile considering they were a special order. Nope I had them in less than two weeks!

I love your t-shirts designs! So much creativity and those shorts will make excellent memories. Just think how personalized the t-shirt quilt will be years from now!

I like how you made the ages of the boys integrate into the design. That will give the friends that see these the " I gotta have one too"

Great work!
