Cafepress Review & Giveaway

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

What is the best Father's Day gift that will make even the most macho men feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Personalized gifts! But where can you find a world of personalized gifts (along with other gifts that need no personalization?)?
Cute Fairy And Owl Puzzle
Cafepress is your best bet! You'll find millions of one-of-a-kind designs on every topic you can imagine (and some you can't) - from political expressions, funny t shirts & stickers, to all sorts of products with cool personalized designs. You can even find themed gear such as Star Trek and Star Wars for the guys that can't get enough.
So where do you begin to look for something even Dad will like? Try searching for something he enjoys! Does he like working in the garage but when you look through their pre-designed items, you can't find something? Create his every own custom print shirt! Choose the style (color, size, long-sleeve/short-sleeve), then click on Start Designing! After that, you just choose the color, and then wait for the designer to come up. It may take a few minutes, depending on your browser. But then you can add graphics, text, and even shapes.
Don't think that you have to settle for just a t-shirt- you can even create your own personalized photo gift! You can choose from customizable iPhone cases, water bottles, and even flip flops!
If you don't want to customize an item but get him a gift that you know he will like, then take a peek at the thousands- if not millions- of items they have. You can possibly find him something in their Wall Art department, which includes Posters, Wall Decals, and even Banners. Does the guy in your life like to drink, but don't want to get him just any drinking glass? You can get him Steins or Shot Glasses.
Want his laptop to match his personality? Under Stickers & Flair (great category title, huh?), he can now have the spiffiest laptop with their amazing array of Laptop Skins like the Monster buck deer Laptop Skins. Give the gift of cars to the guy with the hottest ride on the block by browsing their Car Accessories!
You wouldn't believe what Cafepress has to offer, including Shower Curtains, Baby Bibs, Flip Flops, Custom Stamps, and even *gasp* Underwear! You easily spend hours just browsing Cafepress before choosing on your gift.
You can find Cafepress on Facebook and Twitter.

WHAT I THOUGHT
Before I was able to try Cafepress, I had spent many hours just looking around. I believe it was last year, one day, I spent 2 hours just "Christmas window shopping". Or at least that's what I called it. Twin said I was secretly building a Christmas list. Either way, I had easily made a list with 10 different products that I wanted but knew I wouldn't get.
Anyways, I was excited when Cafepress contacted me, asking if I would like to give Cafepress a try for real. I had no idea what I wanted to order! Twin and I constantly argued over what we wanted, since we share almost everything. We finally agreed on the Fiery Night (by van Gogh) 25.5” x 32” poster and Something Wicked This Way Comes t-shirt.
Now, the reason we picked Fiery Night is because a few years ago, Twin gave me a Starry Night poster (by van Gogh, of course) for my birthday and we figured Fiery Night would be a great companion to Starry Night. The poster is super vibrant and of great quality! It isn't thin at all, and hangs great on the wall. Even a week or two of it hanging, it hasn't completely straightened out, which I like because if I ever have to take it down and roll it up, I won't spend 5 minutes trying to roll the darn thing again. It is a smooth picture, and it looks just great. I will also say that it came carefully packaged with protective padding around it. Now that is quality shipping!
Twin and I kind of like gothic or dark things, since we do enjoy heavy metal quite a bit. When we saw "Something Wicked This Way Comes", we thought it fit us perfectly! We didn't even have to argue over which color or size to get. The day it came, I decided to try it on. It was a little snug, but it is 100% pre-shrunk cotton so all I had to do was wash and stretch it to fit. It is a little on the thin side, but since it was in the 90's that day, I didn't care. It is also a little short as far as length goes. I'm 5'8 and it ended a little above my hips. But once I put a longer tank on underneath it, it looked great! The screen printed image hasn't worn out or peeled. The ride in the washer didn't damage it at all and even stretching it didn't do any damage. I try to wear it as much as I can.
When it gets close to the Holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, ya know?), I probably will end up spending some more time there- I still have a list of things I want!
