Snapsterprint will print your pictures and text onto T-shirts, Hoodies, Mugs, Water Bottles, Caps and many more gifts, as well as a selection of items perfect for parties, and we were given the opportunity to test a range of personalised party items and a mug!
The ordering is really straightforward, it only took me about 40 minutes to put together all 4 of the items I chose.
Ordering is really simple. In my case to start with I was ordering Mini Banners, so I clicked on the 'Party' range from the left hand menu and chose from the vast array of different theme groups - we chose 'Tots' because I wanted something suitable for a youngster's birthday. My son had absolutely no trouble deciding which theme he wanted - 'Calling Earth From planet Robot'.
After choosing a theme you choose your item, in this case 'Mini Banners' and then you personalise it by adding your own details and photo's. It's very intuitive and allows you to reposition your words and photo's really easily, even altering the angle in which they appear.
There are 20 Mini Banners in a pack, which costs £3.95. They are printed on 'premium silk coated 170gsm paper', which I found to be really good quality, good and strong and doesn't rip easily at all. My 3 year old took one of the banners upstairs to show some of his siblings and it's still entirely in one piece and useable. I think they'd be great for scattering on tables at a wedding for example, or for use around the room as decoration.
My next item was A4 posters, and the ordering is exactly the same process. A4 Posters are supplied in packs of 20, but there are various options available, (up to 1 x A0) for £3.95.
The colours are bright and clear and the paper has a good amount of gloss, so that it will resist a sticky toddler finger, but isn't going to glare when you take photo's. They'll be great as my son is having his party out of the house, so we can put them up to decorate the room and alert his guests as to where we are!
My final party item was the Invites, which are supplied in packs of 15 for £4.99, and I rushed mine, which is why I didn't notice that the word 'Party' fell off the bottom! Never mind though, a few strategically placed '......' and I will be able to write whatever I like on the back. I have to say I was a bit disappointed with the invites, mainly because I messed up, but I think I expected them to be openable, which is why I didn't just write my whole message on the front as I should have done! But this is why people do reviews - so that I make the mistakes and you don't have to ;-)
The invites are printed onto premium silk coated 250gsm board and inclusive of matching envelopes (which were missed from my order).
My last item was a personalised mug. They are a 10 oz. Orca Ceramic Mug, which is dishwasher suitable. I chose a photo from my Sea Life Centre review, because it has 6 of the children on it and is the perfect shape to go around the mug.
It's a pretty good representation of the original, and the colours have translated well. Mugs cost £5.95 and can be printed with a photo wrap, text or design of your choice.
I think that Snapsterprint offer incredibly reasonable value for money. The personalised products they sell add a real special something to a party and I love the themes, there were several that I really liked. The paper quality is excellent and the printing very tight, there's no blurriness or mismatching of colours etc. I shall certainly be looking at them again when we eventually get around to getting married.... or when the next teenager reaches 18 - whichever is soonest...
All these items and many, many more can be ordered online at Snapsterprint.com. They can also work around whatever ideas you may have and create something truly individual for you to order.
I was sent the items above free of charge in order to review them.
