Initials, Inc. Review & $50 Gift Card Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #14!
When Initals, Inc. contacted me and asked me if I would like to do a review & giveaway of their products, I was excited. Take a look at their website and you will know exactly why. The company offers a lot of cute bags and home products that you can personalized.

I received the hobo bag to review. After giving the company details on how I would like to personalize it (the name and color of the embroidery as well as the fabric print of my purse), it took the company less than 1 week to personalized it and shipped it to my house. You heard me right, I placed my order and in less than a week I had the purse in my hands. I have ordered personalized products before and they took between 2 to 3 weeks to get the items out of me. So, you can imagine how impressed I was with their turn around time.

Now, the big question is how nice is this bag? The bag I received is as shown on the company catalogue. Way too often, I would buy something online and when the products arrive I would be very disappointed. I know you online shoppers understand what I am talking about here. You buy something online and when the products arrives, you think ,"That looks sort of like the picture, but not quite." Well, I am happy to say that what you see is what you get from Initials, Inc.

To buy personalized products from Initials, Inc., please check out its catalogue and then find a creative partner in your area to get started.

Many thanks to Ivy of Initials, Inc. She has generously offered a $50 gift card to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).
