Monday, July 19, 2010 Personalized Apparel (Review & Giveaway)

Contest Closed
How do you express yourself?  Many of us blog, tweet and facebook to come out and say what we're thinking or to share our 'likes' and dislikes.  But one of my favorite methods is by t-shirt.  You can literally wear your heart on your sleeve and share a bit of your personality without uttering a single word.  There are thousands of custom t-shirts and other apparel to help you get your point across at

For the review, I considered purchasing one of the I heart shirts, specifically for New York.  I’ve always wanted one of those!  Their vintage t-shirts are also super cool and nostalgic.  But since my husband rarely shops for himself, I figured I'd let him choose his favorite item, and of course he went with the Fantasy Football Legend Men's Collared Shirt.  Now he can let his shirt do the bragging for him!  The collared shirt is a very nice quality.  It is made of 100% cotton knit and has three woodtone buttons.  

007 The color he selected was a dark navy blue.  At the time, I didn't realize that the design was completely customizable and that I should have adjusted the color of the Fantasy Football Legend logo so that it would show up better on this shirt.  Since I failed to make any changes, only part of the image is visible, which I was disappointed with, but DH is still happy and that’s what counts since he will be the one wearing this.

The ability to change the artwork on is what makes this site really special.  You can add effects, upload images, add type, drawings and much more.  I haven't seen a tool like this anywhere else.

There is no minimum order required.  Items are reasonably priced and available in sizes infant to 5X.  The shirt we ordered arrived very quickly with just the standard shipping.  I’ll be returning to this store again in the future to make great custom gifts for friends and family now that I know all of the possibilities.

Another thing I admire about this retailer is their philanthropic efforts.  They donate a portion of their profits from every single order to help public school kids fund teacher projects at Donors Choose.
