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?
