Lovely personalised Gifts.
I had not heard of Cewe (pronounced See Wee) which is surprising as they were established in 1961 and have been leaders in the field of photographic printing throughout those 60 years. I was very interested to see what this company had to offer and I was delighted to have the opportunity to try out two of their products.
Cewe offer a wide range of products, many which can be personalised to include your own photographs. I was gifted the spiral bound A5 notebook and the aluminium drinking bottle.
The Cewe website makes it simple, even for someone with very basic IT skills to add their own photograph to the chosen item. Photos can be selected from your own library and there is a selection of templates for you to choose from. The templates allow you to place your photographs as you wish and see a preview of the design before adding to the basket. It only took me about 5 minutes to create my personalised items and complete the process. Once the order was placed it took around a week for the items to be delivered. Cewe sent out emails to keep me informed on the progress of my order.
My first impressions of the items was very positive. Both the notebook and the drinking bottle looked very professionally designed and I felt chuffed with my design/IT skills.
The notebooks can be purchased in two sizes A4 or A5 with 80 pages and spiral binding. They can be ordered with either lined or graph paper. With six different templates on offer there is plenty of choice for everyone. I opted for a rainbow colour splash design which is bright and cheerful. It certainly won’t get lost in my drawer! The photograph I used is one of my granddaughter and every time I look at the book it just makes me smile.
The drinking bottle is silver, has a 500ml capacity and measure 19cm high and is 7.5cm in Diameter. It includes two different caps and a carabiner hook so it can be attached to a rucksack of belt and being aluminium it is very lightweight. It is also dishwasher safe. Again there are a number of templates to choose from to make the item your very own. This would be great for walkers, children’s lunch boxes or just for everyday usage. My chosen template is a squares and lines design and I was able to incorporate two different photographs within it.
Both items are good quality and in my opinion would make fantastic gifts for friends and family members. Being able to personalise items means that they are unique. The range of productson offer from Cewe is vast, from mugs and mouse mats to jigsaws and cushions. With Christmas on the horizon I would definitely recommend a visit to the Cewe website to peruse the wide range of products available.
