Since you were a baby, you’ve loved curling up in a blanket. Now you cuddle with one on the couch while watching Netflix, drape one over your lap during a bonfire, and sleep soundly with one every single night. A comfy home has a mountain of blankets, just ready for snuggling!
Are you looking for holiday gifts? How about company swag? Send cozy vibes with personalized blankets! This guide is here to help you customize blankets that warm everyone’s hearts this season!
Why Do You Need Custom Blankets?
Blankets are wonderful swag or gifts for the following:
Let it snow! With personalized blankets, you’ll have something special for everyone on your list. Embrace the festive spirit by ordering a plush throw blanket in white, red, green, or light blue.
Do you help people improve their sleep quality? Advertise your services with logo blankets! Your clients will love soft personalized fleece blankets or nice weighted blankets for catching more z’s at night.
Put the “warm” in “housewarming” by gifting a custom blanket at the party. A photo blanket with a collage of memories, or an embroidered blanket decorated with the family’s last name are both excellent options.
Realtors & Moving Companies
Realtors can use custom blankets as closing gifts, while moving companies can hand them out as a “thank you” after the furniture is all in place. A free blanket shows your company goes above and beyond, which means even more referrals in the future!
A picnic in the park isn’t complete without a few plaid blankets. Order them in bulk for your company or back-to-school picnic. Now grill up hot dogs, throw around a few Frisbees, and have a blast!
Your spa is all about rest and relaxation. Promote your services with custom blankets. You can keep the blankets on the massage tables on-location, or give them out as prizes in a social media contest.
Furniture & Home Goods
IKEA isn’t the only furniture store out there! Your small shop or Etsy store can stand out with custom throw blankets. Knit blankets are very homey, while plush blankets are great for curling up on the couch.
Welcome guests to your hotel by laying a custom blanket on every bed. Print your hotel’s logo nice and big right in the middle, so your guests can remember who to leave a positive review for after their stay!
Now that you’ve painted the walls and put in a nice backsplash in the kitchen, it’s time for the details. Make the house a home with potted plants, modern knick-knacks on the shelves, and cozy personalized blankets on the couch.
Kids at summer camp can start feeling pretty homesick. Help them feel at home with custom blankets on every cot. Print a cute clipart image or a funny quote that will make them smile.
Of course, custom blankets aren’t limited to the businesses and events listed above. You can be a bakery, insurance company, lawyer, or even a sumo wrestler and still find ways to advertise with a cozy throw. It’s all about being creative!
Tips for Customizing Blankets
Are you ready to order custom blankets? Follow these design tips to make them look extra special.
- Decide on the best material.
- Find the right size.
- Select a good color.
- Choose a decoration method.
What Are Custom Blankets Made Of?
Whether you want throws, large comforters, or picnic blankets, you should take your time in choosing the material. The fabric impacts not only the comfiness of your blankets, but also how easy they are to clean.
Here are your options:
- Acrylic blankets
- Chenille blankets
- Cotton blankets
- Fleece blankets
- Knit blankets
- Mink blankets
- Polyester blankets
- Sherpa blankets
Keep in mind, you may also find blankets made from a combination of these fabrics such as polyester fleece or a cotton blend (part cotton, part polyester). Explore your options ahead of time!
How Big is a Blanket?
Personalized blankets are about 50 inches in height and 60 inches in width. However, you’re not limited to just that size. You can find smaller custom baby blankets, large Sherpa blankets, or oversized options that you’d use for a good night’s sleep.
Small Custom Blankets
Small blankets are meant to be used by babies, pets, or as accent pieces in the living room. They’re also great if you need emergency blankets that won’t take up a lot of space in your car.
Large Custom Blankets
Large blankets cover your body from the top of the torso to your toes. This size is great for sleeping, but is also nice if you’re watching TV on the couch on a chilly evening.
Oversized Custom Blankets
An oversized blanket is about the size of the comforter on your bed. It covers your entire body, from your shoulders to the bottom of your feet. You can also lay an oversized blanket on the ground if you need a seat for an outdoor concert or firework display.
What Color Should My Custom Blankets Be?
Do you need blue or pink custom baby blankets for a baby shower? How about red throw blankets for a company Christmas party? No matter what, you’ll find the right color for you!

How Are Blankets Customized?
The print or embroidery is the most important part of customizing blankets. You should choose a design that can’t be found at stores, whether it’s a name, company logo, or special photo.
Personalized blankets are decorated using:
- Screen printing
- Dye sublimation
Screen Printed Blankets
Do you want monogrammed blankets for a small wedding? Look for screen printed blankets, which are the most budget-friendly. They include one free ink color in the design.
Dye Sublimated Blankets
Custom picture blankets are wonderful gifts for anniversaries, birthdays, and Mother’s Day. In order to print all the colors in a digital photo, you need to look for blankets that are decorated with dye sublimation. Every ink color is included in the price.
This isn’t like the embroidery your grandma does in her rocking chair! A machine stitches the design onto the blanket using a digital copy of the image. You can choose up to 10 thread colors for certain blankets.
Embossing is used to add the numbers and letters to credit cards. It can also be used to decorate blankets. Your design is engrained in the material, making it so it won’t peel or fade over time.
If you thought engraving was only used on glass or wood, think again! This printing method can be used to add text and/or an image onto personalized blankets.
Other Things to Consider When Buying Custom Blankets
It’s almost time to buy custom blankets. Before you start, here are a few other things to think about when it comes to your order!
Some blankets have fringe at the ends like you’d see on winter scarves. These blankets tend to be not as thick or warm as wool or custom fleece blankets, so keep that in mind if you like the look.
Plaid or Pattern
Plaid is very popular for picnic blankets, but you can also find custom printed blankets with other patterns. Tie dye blankets, for instance, are wonderful promotional items for music festivals.
Are you a travel company? Try roll-up blankets, which are very portable for flights and road trips. They roll up and close via Velcro, and there’s even a convenient carrying handle on the top!
The last thing you want is for your printed blankets to get dirty or dusty during shipping. If they have a long commute ahead of them, consider buying personalized blankets that come with a vinyl storage bag.
Personalized blankets tend to have a low minimum, which means you don’t have to order very many at one time. In fact, most orders come with less than 100 blankets at one time.
You can find cheap custom blankets, but you need to know where to look! For instance, certain fleece throws start at around $5 each. Explore your options so you can find something that fits within your budget.
Why Should You Customize Blankets?
No matter what, you can find a way to use custom blankets. They’re wonderful for holidays, housewarming parties, and even as advertising items for businesses of any industry.
Just look at Clark’s, an oyster bar in chilly Aspen, Colorado. This high-end restaurant serves not only delicious seafood and specialty cocktails, but also hands all their guests a custom blanket they can use while dining. Aspen has many ski resorts, so after a chilly day on the slopes, people can come in and enjoy a warm meal and blanket at Clark’s!
