CafePress Personalized Gifts - Review and $50 GC Giveaway

I'm sure many of you have heard of CafePress. It is an online retailer of stock and customized merchandise where you can create your own personalized gifts such as posters, art prints, mugs, T-shirts, and much more. You can also create your own shop on CafePress and sell your designs as well. Since Father's Day is coming up, you can create something special for Dad with CafePress with their wide selection of products.

I was recently given the opportunity to create my own personalized items. I decided to make a couple of necklaces: one with a photo of my 3-year old son and another one with my own digital artwork. I was impressed with their fast shipping. When I received the package, I couldn't wait to open it and check it out. Each necklace comes with a black storage pouch. The image quality is nice. The photos were printed out a little darker than my original (but could be the colors/brightness of my monitor that needed to be adjusted).

Round necklace pendant with photo of my son.

Oval necklace pendant of my digital artwork.

* high-quality, easy-to-use clasp
* pendant made of aluminum and features a polished-scallop edge
* necklace made with electroplated nickel, silver plating, finished with a non-tarnish overcoat gloss

I'm currently in the process of building my own CafePress Online Store: http://www.cafepress.com/jennieyuen More of my fantasy art, digital art, and photography will be added soon, so check back soon. For now, you can browse through my art gallery.

Thanks to the wonderful people at CafePress, one (1) of my lucky readers will have a chance to win a $50 Gift Certificate to redeem any products of their choice. Chosen winner will be selected via Random.org through Rafflecopter and is open to US & Canadian residents (ends June 24, 2012 at 11:59pm EST). Winner will have 48 hours to respond to claim their prize. Mandatory entry is required to unlock the additional optional entries.

Design your own products at CafePress.com!
