I did a Google search for "Blue, zebra, birthday" and one of the products that popped up was this shirt design by zazzle.com. I was immediately lusting after one. I contacted the company, sent Larry an email, and the rest is history. (The product was provided to me for free and the statements in this post are 100% my own opinions)
Larry suggested instead of just telling him what I want that he send me a gift certificate so I could go through the order process. At first, that puzzled me, but then, I learned that at zazzle.com, you custom create everything. Want to add a picture of your child added to background on mouse pad? Go to zazzle. Want a customized hoodie for your kids sports teams? Go to zazzle.
I picked the zebra shirt that says "I'm 1" on front. Bart and I designed it so the back says, "I'm so hungry I could eat a zebra" -Ethan....so it looks like a famous quote :) We LOVE it. (The back of the shirt is pictured in the first picture but Ethan would not cooperate to get a good backside shot)
It was super easy to design and play around with the options available for you. We played for about 1/2 an hour, just making stuff up, until Bart thought up that funny mis-quote.
The only bad thing I have to say is that we ordered a size 2 (Ethan is a big boy!) and it fits quite well. His other clothes are still 12-18 months for the most part with some 18-24 thrown in for good measure...so make sure you don't order down a size if ordering a kids shirt. I can not say that this is true for sweatshirts or adult shirts, just the shirt that Ethan received, but now you know.
I can't wait for Jackson's birthday...he might be having a robot theme and I'd love to design a shirt perfect for him!
