{Review} Zoey’s Attic Personalized Gifts

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary sample of one or more of the products or services mentioned below in the hope that I would mention it on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and/ or believe will be good for my readers. In some cases, an affiliate link has been applied. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

Details: Zoey’s Attic officially launched in November 2006 by creator and owner Erin Delanty. The inspiration for the website came shortly after she and her husband welcomed the birth of their first child, baby Bridget, in August of that year. Bridget officially became a big sister herself in May of 2008 and the inspiration continues!

After searching unsuccessfully for out-of-the-ordinary newborn baby tees on-line and listening to friends who were having difficulty finding unique big brother/big sister gear, she decided to use her background as a graphic designer and web developer to design her own line of products.

Her initial idea was to create a web-based shop where new parents and parents-to-be could involve all members of the family in exciting “baby news” by offering a variety of pregnancy or baby announcements and hard-to-find big brother/sister tees.

Zoey’s Attic sold its first shirt just two days after launching the website and development has expanded based on the initial and continuing positive response. They’ve since grown to offer many more products for the whole family and look forward to everything in the works for 2013-2014!

Personal Experience: With so many holidays and events coming up, I relished the chance to create a few customized shirts at Zoey’s Attic. There are so many adorable designs for such a  huge variety of occasions… including birthdays, Father’s Day, and pregnancy announcements… that I had quite the task ahead of me. How was I going to choose just two?!

First thing on my mind was the Prince’s upcoming birthday. Yes, I have until October, but this is likely to be the first one he could possibly remember snippets of and I want it to be special. What better than starting with a custom tee for the birthday boy?

There are nine pages of birthday selections. Yes… nine. I found enough designs that I liked that I will be back for future birthdays. :) I finally decided on the “Does this shirt make me look…” design. How adorable is this?! (Note: The black band is just where I blacked out part of the Prince’s name. It wasn’t like that on the actual tee.)

Next on my mind was how difficult it is to find my husband something special for Father’s Day. He’s such a difficult person to buy for! When I found the clever Copy & Paste tees for daddy and child, I had an “aha!” moment. These were perfect, because I knew he would actually understand and appreciate the joke. Doesn’t hurt that the little Prince is nearly a carbon copy of his daddy. (He has my blue eyes.)

One key feature I noticed across Zoey’s Attic is that each design is completely customizable: change colors, the wording, add a name, or anything else that  you need! This allows you to make each and every shirt you order completely yours. I love that even the simplest of designs, like the Copy & Paste tees, can benefit from this customization. I was able to choose the colors I wanted for the t-shirts and the color of the wording. I even added the Prince’s name to the back of his birthday tee in the same shade of green as the “4” on the front for a completely polished and personal tee. I went with a basic black lettering on gray for Lord Tyrneathem and son. Amusingly enough, the gray of the Prince’s shirt was slightly lighter in shade… much like a true copy would be. ;)

The Prince still hasn’t worn his birthday tee, but he and my husband have worn their matching t-shirts multiple times. They have been washed multiple times and the printing is as clear as it was on day one. There was minimal shrinking of the cotton shirts.

They use something called digital printing to print the designs. Frankly, I’m clueless what that ultimately means… but one thing I know is that it is the finest quality printing I have seen on a t-shirt. The images and letters are nearly indistinguishable from the fabric. There’s no texture, puckering, breaking, or peeling. I can’t believe she does these tees in her basement! I want to see that basement…

Overall, I am 100% satisfied with the items I received from Zoey’s Attic. It’s rare that I hand out a five-star review, but I think it is well deserved here. The items are unique and made with amazing quality. They are a company I will return to again… soon… I want a tee too!
