Today we are taking a deep dive into our best-selling baby blankets by taking you behind the scenes and showing you how they are made, what options are available to you, and answering some frequently asked questions.
How are they made?
Our blankets come to us a beautiful, ridiculously soft blank canvas. They are all gorgeous, crisp, clean white when they arrive at our studio and then it is time for us to do our magic to turn these into the beauties that we all love so much.
The first step is the design process. This is where you, as the customer, tell us your favorite colors and design elements (or choose from one of our SEVERAL pre designed options) to make the perfect blanket for your baby. With this info and a small amount of photoshop magic we create a mock up to send over to you for approval.
You tell us if there are any tweaks you would like us to make and then give us the thumbs up once we get everything as you had imagined. We then print the design on our trusted sublimation printer, which prints the transfers that we use to press the design on to the blanket.
Next we take the blankets and transfers to our studio to be pressed. Here we use our industrial -grade heat press to transfer the sublimation ink from the paper to the blanket. The sublimation process uses a combination of heat and pressure to allow the ink to become a part of the polyester fibers of the blanket. Meaning there is no vinyl or paint that will peel and crack over time. The designs are now a part of the fabric and will withstand being washed time after time (which we know all too well is VERY important for a baby blanket).
After a few presses and some puzzle piecing the blanket transfers on our end your blanket is complete! We carefully package it up and send it on its way to you. It will arrive ready for a quick trip through the wash and on to some baby snuggles! These gorgeous blankets are a favorite among new mamas for tummy time and using as a car seat or stroller blanket.
Here is a quick video showing you a behind the scenes look at the whole process
Baby Blanket Behind The Scenes
- I'm doing my nursery in _____ theme, can you do a custom design for me?
Absolutely! We can do nearly any design you can imagine, with the exception of Trademarked designs. Let us know what design elements, colors, etc. you have in mind and we can help bring your ideas to life!
- How do I wash these?
As a mama of two, I KNOW this question is important and your decision to purchase or not depends heavily on how difficult this will be to wash. Good news, these are super simple to care for. Just machine wash cold with like colors and tumble dry low. If your blanket starts to look a little grungy I HIGHLY recommend Oxi Clean White Revive to bring it back to life (personally I add some to all of my loads of whites, it keeps everything bright and clean).
