Important notice March 25, 2013:

Canada Post has discontinued the $100 insurance that was included with Air Mail service. We will no longer ship by Small Packet Air Mail into the United States and you will have to use Expedited Parcel which includes insurance and a tracking number. We will continue to ship overseas parcel by Air Mail for now but there is no insurance or tracking number. In the event of loss the customer will have to re-order the item at their expense. Canada Post does offer a tracking/insurance service for overseas but the cost of shipping is very high. See the Prices page for more information.

How long does it take?
It does take time to produce a personalized blanket like this from scratch but so did the treasured blankets many Grandmothers lovingly knit for their families. 

Please allow 3-4 weeks for the blanket to be made.

Allow the following for shipping (Major centers):
Canada: 1-3 days, Express Post (3-5 days, Expedited parcel)
USA*: 5-7 days, Express Post (9-14 days, Expedited Parcel)
Overseas: 10-14 days, Air Mail

Note: 
-Shipping times are in business days. 
- Overnight shipping is not offered. 
- Allow an extra day or two for remote areas. 

How big are they?
The receiving blanket is 33 x 24 inches (width x length) or 83cm x 60cm, a nice size for a car seat and it's also a good size for a toddler to carry around. The Crib blanket is 33 x 42 inches or 83cm x 106cm and makes a beautiful crib spread.

What are some popular color choices?

Blanket Color Letter Color

Our most popular Blankees™ Brand baby blankets have the white letters and edging. We now have a new shade of white called "warm white", an "off-white". It looks very nice with the darker blanket colors like the Dusty pink and the Navy blue.

The following combinations are NOT recommended:

Yellow with white letters.
Yellow with warm white letters.
Forest green with dark blue letters.
Dusty pink with lilac letters.

As a rule the reverse of these colors are also not recommended.

NOTE: We do not allow returns on these color combinations.

What can I put on the blanket?
Your message may consist of Christening dates, baby's names, birth statistics, poems, personal messages, etc. Each line can have up to 10 large letters or 20 small letters (including spaces). There can be up 3 lines on a Receiving size blanket and 6 lines on a Crib blanket. Additional lines are available.

Are the borders or edging extra?
The picture borders on the blankets are included, as is the edging/trim, it's just the personalization that varies.

What is the custom border?
This is an easy way to add an extra special touch to your Blankees™ Personalized Baby Blanket. We replace the hearts/blocks/butterflies in the bottom border with a message of your choice! The custom border can be up to 3 lines with a maximum of 20 characters per line. This option is available for the Teddies & Hearts, Toy Blocks and the Butterflies styles.

How do I order?
For accuracy we prefer if orders were submitted using the online system. If you prefer not to send your credit card information over the Internet, call our toll free number 1-888-Blankee(252-6533). 

What if I order more than one?
When sending two or more blankets to an address an order must be submitted for each blanket, you can not order more than one blanket at a time. Choose a shipping option for the first blanket so we know the shipping service level you desire. We combine the orders and pass on the shipping savings. See the shipping cost section on our Prices for more information.

Since each blanket is individually made we can not offer any discounts on the Blankees™ Personalized Baby Blankets themselves but we do pass on any savings resulting from shipping more than one blanket to the same mailing address. 

Have you considered using natural materials?
We will not be offering cotton in the foreseeable future.  Blankees™ Personalized Baby Blankets  are made with 100% acrylic premium acrylics and are machine wash & dry.

How long have you been in business?
We started making personalized baby blankets in 1990 and went online in 1995. Our site, blankees.com, was established in 1997.

Where are they made?
Blankees™ Personalized Baby Blankets are of 100% NAFTA origin. The yarns are produced in Mexico, distributed through the USA and knit here in Canada.

Do you guarantee your work?
We cover our product with a 100% Satisfaction guarantee. If you are not absolutely delighted with your Blankees™ personalized baby blanket it may be returned for a full refund. Returns must be clearly marked as "Returned goods" on the outside of the package or there is a $15.00 Customs fee. Please call us first before returning your Blankees™ personalized baby blanket.  Note: Before you order please double-check the birth information for accuracy. We'll fix our mistakes (a rare occurrence) but yours will cost you. This is custom work and mistakes require the complete remake of the blanket for correction. 

How do you choose the contest winner?
