Freshman blankets are such a fun and special way to send your grad off to college! I love to give these blankets as graduation gifts, birthday gifts (especially if they're toward the end of the school year), or as Christmas gifts. The blanket's design incorporates the recipient's name as well as the college's branded colors, school title and images similar to the school's logo. Due to copyright, I am unable to put the official logo on the blanket without written permission which is very rare to get on the college lvel. You can also send me a few quotes (their favorite quotes or messages you want to convey). When you place your order, I will reach out to you via email to collect all the information you'd like on the blanket and then I will get start designing your custom blanket. Creating new art and designing a one-of-a-kind blanket takes time; please check my Turnaround Time page to make sure you order enough in advance.
OTHER REASONS THIS BLANKET IS SPECIAL
- Front and Back Minky: the front is a printed minky and the back (and trim) is a longer-pile, ultra plush minky. I only use the highest quality, long lasting materials. I will help you choose the perfect back fabric to coordinate with the blanket colors.
- Meaningful Design: their name is a part of the blanket and the art has an encouraging message.
- Machine Washable: Colorfast! You can wash these blankets at home without worry of bleeding colors. Just don't use heat or fabric softener. (See "Care Instructions" for more details.)
- Handmade, Local Small Shop: I design every piece of art on the blanket, place every fabric order, wrap and ship every blanket. My talented seamstress andn I are both full-time moms in Kaysville, UT. This is not a generic, bulk operation - you and your blanket get our full love and attention.
STORY BEHIND THE BLANKET
I'd been thinking about this idea of a college blanket for quite a while when I had an awesome client approach me about making a custom blanket for her neice who just graduated and is about to head off to college on her own! That's such an exciting yet tough experience and this blanket is going to be a special keepsake from home for her to hold on to and remember the support and encouragement from her home team.
