Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Oakland-based Printable Memories, a company specializing in custom photo gifts, has announced that they are now offering personalized photo blankets. The company is utilizing the latest technology to produce the blankets, which come in a variety of styles and fabrics with many design options.
“Customers really enjoy the process of working with our designers to create a photo blanket for a special occasion or simply as a way of showing someone they care,” says Brian Cash, Founder of Printable Memories. “Thanks to online ordering, we – and our customers – have more options. We’ve further developed an intuitive, useful online tool for personalization, so customers can truly make the blanket their own and one-of-a-kind. It’s really been a fun journey for us,” says Cash. Customers buy the blankets for many occasions, including weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and holidays.
The blankets are available in various styles including fleece and woven fabrics. The image is dyed into the fabric using a process called dye sublimation. Cash, when describing the process, notes: “We realized that a lot of times, printed images on fabric feel ‘scratchy’ to the touch. We wanted to ensure that the blankets are as smooth and soft as possible.” Another benefit of dying rather than printing is that the image maintains excellent clarity and resists fading, even after multiple washings. The blankets are now available on their website for purchase, and customers can choose the background color, add a special message, or a border to their photo blanket.
Printable Memories began as a small, boutique photo gift business and has now expanded to include new, innovative products like their personalized photo blankets. They’ve found a niche and customers are responding. “Lots of companies put photos on mugs and t-shirts, but products like photo blankets have more potential in terms of what we can do to make the gift unique,” explains Cash.
