Family Matrix Crossword Puzzle T-Shirt Review!!

Not long ago I was contacted by a company called Family Matrix about doing a review. Intrigued by the name, I checked out their website, and wow, talk about a unique product! (BTW, if you're on the lookout for Mother's Day gifts, this would be perfect). Family Matrix creates personalized clothing-from tees to hoodies-and mugs. Now, I know that may not sound unique, but here's what is: you type in your family member's names, and then it is turned into a crossword puzzle design on your shirt or mug! Here's and example:
 Is that neat, or what?! So, I went on and designed a shirt for my review. You can choose the color(s) for the names, and each time you hit "create" the design changes, so you can play around until you find one that you really like! You can also add a saying at the bottom, so I put "The L.... Family" on mine. I chose to get my design put on a blue t-shirt, and it came out really nice! I am so impressed and pleased! This is definitely a one-of-a-kind item that would make a great gift!

"The founders of Family Matrix, Abraham "The Hammer" Bubash and Phineus Q. McCabe, come from a long line of typesetters. Really klutzy typesetters, in fact, who were always dropping boxes of movable type. Luckily for them, one day a dropped tray of type landed face up and coincidentally displayed the names of each and every member of the family. And the idea for Family Matrix was born.
Share your memories with unique family t shirtssweatshirts or personalized drinking mugs that proudly displays the names of everyone in your family. Creating personalized family gifts is easy and fun for kids, parents and grandparents alike. Unique family gifts are perfect for any occasion or family member! 
In minutes you can create a one of a kind "crossword" style design that shows the names of your entire family. A personalize message can also be placed below the design."

  1. What a great idea; it would be a fun gift for someone who just got married, or who has had a new child. Maybe even a new pet?

  2. I've never seen shirts like this before. I think a family t shirt would be great!
