Since I started blogging, I have gotten the opportunity to try out some great products! There hasn't been anything that I have received that I haven't honestly liked. Every now and then, though, I receive a product for review that has the WOW factor. This review is about one of those products. I recently received a customized Photo Blanket from Photoweavers and I absolutely love it!
Photoweavers is a family owned company that weaves photo blankets, pillows, tote bags and wall hangings. They are master weavers with a relentless pursuit of quality. In fact, they invented woven photo blankets several years ago. They take care of their customers, as evidenced by their over 4,000 Facebook fans. With Photoweavers, your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed, no questions.
I was given the opportunity to review one of their large 71"x53" photo blankets. I decided to make one for my mom with the kids' pictures on it. She does so much for us, and I thought the blanket would be a great thank you gift.
There are so many different options when it comes to creating your photo blanket. If you just want a picture on the blanket, you can use the Super Simple Method and simply upload a picture and the entire blanket will be that picture. Or, you can use the Customizable Method to fully customize your woven product. I chose the customizable method. From there, there are three different formats to choose from. The Standard Format allows for the greatest amount of options, and up to 4 pictures. The Life's Moments Format is a combination of a single photo and a pre-designed prepared border of your choice. The Portrait Format is designed to spotlight a single photo on an ever expanding selection of backgrounds.
The design process was so easy! After I chose my format, I uploaded my photo. If you have more than one photo, you will arrange them also. The next step was to add a border. There are several different border categories, such as Baby, Collegiate, Family, Holiday and Sports. I chose a really pretty Grandma border from the Family section. After I chose my border, I had the option to edit my photo. You can rotate, zoom and pan to get your photo positioned exactly how you want it. Since the border I chose came with text that said "World's Coolest Grandma" and some cute design elements, I chose not to add any more, but you can definitely add more to the blanket. I completed my order and received my blanket in just a matter of days. Check out my mom with her new blanket...
Isn't that AWESOME? I absolutely love it, and I think my mom loves it even more! The detail from the picture of the kids is perfect. The blanket is soft and you can tell just by looking at it that it is high quality. It is also HUGE! It is definitely big enough to snuggle up under on these cold winter nights. The design we picked out was super cute, and I think the blanket turned out great!
This large blanket can be purchased from Photoweavers.com for $119. Shipping starts at $9.99 for standard shipping, or you can also choose expedited shipping methods to receive your blanket quicker. Most blankets generally ship out within four days of receiving the order.

I highly recommend Photoweavers! These blankets would make great gifts for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day or just because. In fact, I am going to be ordering another blanket this weekend as a gift for a friend. That's how great I think they are! Head on over to Photoweavers.com to start creating your woven masterpiece!
