I think a lot about how to create personalised products for home. Personalising has become the norm in the decor world today from names, nicknames, initials, memorable dates & my business is all about it. Creating personalised objects gives you a world of wonderful keepsakes [caption id="attachment_1383" align="aligncenter" width="1000"] personalised products[/caption] #1 It's yours - This would have to be most most obvious reason. It's yours!! When you're name is on a cushion, or print, a clock, even a tee no one can take that from you. You own it. Everyone pretty much knows who this bedroom belongs to when they walk in when you name is illustrated perfectly across that plump cushion sitting on your bed. It's pretty much like having your name up in lights! #2 Being unique - If you have a unique way of spelling your name, it's kind of a must to use my personalised service. You're never going to find your unique name it printed on mainstream products. You have the opportunity to spell names exactly as you please. If you never liked the 'e' on the end of Charlie, that's fine get rid of it & just keep the 'i'...Charli. if you love the name Ava but not happy with only 3 letters, add one Avah. I have had the joy of witnessing hundreds of names as you could well imagine, & I have seen some very unique ways of expressions. #3 Keepsakes - Keepsakes make my heart sing, creating memories is one of my favourite things to do. I absolutely envy how scrapbookers do this with colour, photos, & so many details, it's incredible. Personally I don't have the patience to create such works of art, so I use decor instead. Adding additional details to products is something I have always done as a complimentary service. I have added dates, lots of dates, but also personal sayings, messages, photo collages and anniversaries. This is my favourite part of my job, reading all of the personal messages I receive for others, some are so beautiful. My most popular product for creating keeps sakes is definitely my blue owl boys christening cushion, pretty flower girls christening cushions, lovers tree tea towel & photo collage heat bags.

Not only does it solve calling them by the other name but it's absolutely a brilliant way for them to show their own personality. Just because they look the names definitely doesn't mean they like everything the same. Not having twin myself, but I would assume showcasing their own individual style would be really important, as it would be frustrating being assumed you love everything your twin sister does. #5 Your own style - Another service that I offer is custom colouring, I actually do this quite a lot, & it's something I actually really enjoy. I find it exciting changing what I have created into a completely new colour palette, as the end results have such a new spin & perspective to what I envisaged. This actually has very little to do with names, but more about making sure what I create coordinates perfectly for the space you need it. At times I offer a few colour combos, but I can not create every colour under the sun, as sometimes it still isn't perfect. This is where I change colour palettes completely for customers, or sometimes just a spot colour change. For example a blue coloured name to yellow. Next year I will be adding this as a service & will definitely be telling you more about it then.
