Can I get a quick overview of the Keepsake products?
Absolutely! We’ve made the short video below to show the products we offer, their variations, and answer your questions about materials, construction, and process.
What’s the difference between a t-shirt quilt and a t-shirt blanket?
Quilts offer the most size and customization options. Quilts are larger than blankets and are commercially quilted using 100% polyester batting. Quilts are made with three layers.
Quilts are larger, and have many more customization options such as more colors and the option to add sashing to the quilt at no extra charge. You can use different types of shirts or fabric to make a quilt.
Blankets are two layers and hand tied for increased strength and durability. Blankets are made with 100% anti-pill polyester fleece. Both quilts and blankets have a separate outer binding to ensure a high quality construction.
Blankets are smaller, can only be made with t-shirts or sweatshirts, and have fewer size and color options.
How does the ordering process work?
Ordering is as easy as 1-2-3!
2. Prepare your shirts
You should always wash your shirts before sending them. After your order is placed, you'll receive an email confirmation with a set of labels to attach to your shirts, indicating the order you'd like them to appear on the quilt. If you have no preference, feel free to skip this part!
3. Mail them to us
Send us your shirts using the shipping service of your choice (FedEx, UPS, USPS, etc.) and make sure to get your tracking number. That's it! We'll take it from here, and be in constant contact with you every step of the process to let you know how your quilt is coming along.
Do I need to cut my shirts before sending them?
Nope! Let us do all the work. All we ask is that the shirts be washed before sending.
Can I send other clothing items besides t-shirts?
Sure! T-shirts are our most common item but we can also use sweatshirts, hoodies, polo shirts, jerseys, etc. If in doubt, don't hesitate to contact us. We're more than happy to advise on a case-by-case basis.
How long does it take to receive my quilt?
Our quilts are handmade with the highest attention to quality and detail. Typical turnaround time is 3-4 weeks, starting on the day we receive your t-shirts. Due to seasonal demands, this time can vary. If you need your order for a special date, please contact us in advance and we'll make it happen!
