uBlanket offers six reasons what you should choose use to make your memory blanket:
(1) Customer satisfaction
Our customers have voiced their delight by sending us notes. Here is one below:
“I recently received a u blanket and I'm so pleased with it!! It's everything a blanket should be so personal and comfy! Great job I will tell all my friends about it!! “ -Casta G., NY
We fully quilt our blankets and use high quality backing. Every blanket is also made with high-loft batting to make it warm and cozy. Additionally we fully quilt your blanket so they last for many years.
You get to easily design your uBlanket online using our custom online blanket builder tool. Instead of trying to guess what your blanket is going to look like, you design every aspect of it. From the backing color to how each shirt is cut. It's up to you!
We don't like wasting things here at uBlanket. So every bit of extra fabric generated from blanket orders is used to make blankets for homeless children. We have an outstanding partnership with Project Night Night, a non-profit organization devoted to helping underprivileged children. They help us distribute the blankets to children effectively.
We have seen some "companies" offering a blanket made out of shirts for upwards of $350; we think this is outrageous. uBlanket strives to have the best quality product at the lowest possible price. We want as many people as possible to be able to afford such a cool blanket. Every blanket we sell is made by a professional seamstress or tailor in the USA.
Once you design your blanket online we'll have it sewed and shipped within one week! While others require up to 4 weeks, an entire month, we make sure our blankets all ship within one week.
