I love having things created just for me. I’m a bit of a diva that way. Something one-of-a-kind is always better than picking up something else that is one-of-a-million copies. Especially since I had my son I’ve wanted to have everything personalized for him so it can be a keepsake later in life just to show him how special he is. And how much he rocks. I know, I will totally need to work on the whole humility thing, because I don’t want to send him into the world thinking that wherever he goes a sippy cup will magically show up with his name etched into it because there’s ALWAYS something just for him.
When it comes to these all so important keepsakes and personalized treasures, it’s best to trust a professional who can design exactly what you want and how you want it.
Little Monkey Designs is a one-stop shop for all things unique, trendy, and personalized with some serious polish! They offer personalized wall art, birth announcement prints, invitations, party printables, personalized growth charts, family tree wall art, and much more.
The options are endless! You can choose how to tweak almost all of the products in the Little Monkey Designs shop, but some of them are so perfect already you may want to purchase them as they are. The wall art is so bright and cheerful. It’s totally the spot where you can find all of your favourite Pins from Pinterest!
Little Monkey Designs offers colour match free of charge. You can upload a colour swatch and they will match your design colour to the swatch so it will blend in with your decor perfectly.
Their growth charts are awesome because they can be personalized with not only your child’s name, but their photo can be included as well. I feel like one of these would work much better than the Sharpie lines I have been adding to the closet doorframe in my sons room.
The growth charts are printed on either premium matte vinyl or artist grade canvas, and they come finished with wooden dowels placed through the hems on each end for a finished look, and a matching ribbon as well so hanging them is easy.
I slacked on making an imprint of my sons hands and feet when he was a baby (I even had the kit – there was really no excuse) and I regretted not doing it so much. If you haven’t done it yourself, another great way to commemorate how incredibly small those tiny feet and hands are is with the Little Monkey Designs Hand & Footprint Wall Art.
The wall art that Little Monkey Designs offers can come in a print or canvas. Some of the designs are so freaking adorable! You an even take care of the printing yourself if you would like, which is a great option for all of you control freaks out there.
Little Monkey Designs can also take your images and have them printed for you on premium gallery wrapped canvases.
My favourite idea is the World Travel Map. You can customize your travel map to show everywhere you have lived and traveled in the world. It’s a really polished way to reflect where you have been!
Little Monkey Designs also offers wedding prints where you can either choose a pre-deisgned print, or have a custom one created to match your wedding theme.
You can choose to have a birth announcement customised or pre-designed with their typographic, photo or illustrative options. Another awesome idea is the chalkboard print! I think these are a great way to commemorate a milestone with personal information posted in a creative way – it’s a great keepsake.
Their invitations are pretty awesome. Much better than the standard ones you can buy in a box, and the cost of customizing them is very reasonable and comparable to buying generic ones in a store. Little Monkey Designs offers custom designed invites as well which I will totally be taking advantage of. It’s really hard to find invitations for a gossip/wine drinking/food binging/no boys allowed party.
Printable birthday decorations can be hard to find, and once you find them they can be very expensive! Little Monkey Designs has quite a few to choose from, and what I love is that they can customize for your event as well.
I think the best part about Little Monkey Designs is their creative services. Many online shops aren’t willing to change or personalize their work. What you see is what you get. Little Monkey Designs will not only give you the option of customizing the products they offer, but they provide branding solutions to companies from the ground up. They are willing to work with you to learn about the marketplace your company is in, your goals, your vision for the brand, and about your competitors to create the product you need to bring your vision to life. They can create logos, brochures, custom graphics, and anything else you need to give your company a boost creatively.
