In the fall of 2004, a businessman who was also a U.S Marine started the internet-based company Customized World. After seven years of managing the company, he decided to move on and pass the torch, making Customized World now a family-owned and operated business. The company has grown since its conception and is still evolving.
Their website’s layout is pretty simple but displays essential elements that customers need in custom shopping sites. They carry both custom products and ready to order items, with a good range of different styles and products. They carry several products for men, women, children, toddlers & babies and they even have a doggie corner. Their products are very easy on the wallet, plus they also have regular sales and promos that you can watch out for. Personalized shirts and other apparel are at $14 – $25, and accessories like canvas totes and keychains are priced at around $9 – $15.
Their design center is simple like the site’s layout. It does not feature sophisticated design tools or high definition images but you will still be able to personalize the product’s color, size, font and text color. There are cliparts available to incorporate in the design but the images are very simple and not very detailed. There may be additional charges of around $1-$3 for additional lines of text and text placement. Additionally, the placement for the text and clipart is very limited. They use laser printing to apply the custom designs on the products.
Customized World has a turnaround time of 7 business days and order changes should be made within 24 hours of placing the order. Shipping can be expedited for an extra fee. Personalized items can’t be replaced, exchanged or refunded.
This website, although very simple, offers a lot of great and interesting apparel and accessories. Noticeably, their prices are also a lot more inexpensive than other websites that offer customization services. Compared to other sites though, Customized World doesn’t offer as much product and style options.
