Pictures On My Pillow!

Today I wanted to do a review of a photo pillow case I made on the York Photo website. I had a coupon code to make a pillowcase for $5 and I hadn't heard of York Photo before so I wanted to given them a shot.

So this is the pillowcase I made and I have to say I was really excited to see it when I opened the package!  The pillowcase itself is a really soft jersey cotton fabric which my daughter loves.  And all of the printed elements look great!

As far as the process of designing the pillowcase on the York Photo website, I thought it was really easy.  You pick a design template or you can start from scratch.  I picked a template and then I was able to change the background, add text and clip art and drop in my photos.  It really took no time at all and I thought it was really user-friendly.  I was also impressed by the amount of options you had to pick from for backgrounds and clip art.  I've been on other site where the selection is quite limited and I'm happy this was not the case here.

So with my coupon code for $5 and shipping of $5.99 this project cost $10.99 to my door.  I thought the shipping was a little high but overall I am quite pleased and would definitely order another! The shipping was also really fast.  I didn't have to wait long at all for this to arrive.

I did want to mention that this pillow case is pretty large.  I have a standard queen size pillow and you can see there's still room so you could probably use this on a king sized pillow.  My daughter loves seeing her face on the pillow, it's so funny to watch her touch the pictures.

York Photo has a deals section on there website and while they don't have a code for the pillow case right now, there are codes for lots of other products including a blanket!  I might have to try that!  Keep in mind photo gifts like these make awesome Christmas gifts. Oh and as a new customer you also get some free prints which is always nice!
