New York, NY, August 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Checkerboard Ltd, award winning designer of fine stationery for over three generations, introduces a line of finely crafted personalized gift and home décor products that include framed wall décor, supple throw pillows and elegant dinner plates, designed around themes of romance, love, home, hearth, and even pets.
"To meet increased demand for personalized products that express consumers’ unique personality and lifestyle, Checkerboard created a line of stylish home décor and gift products that customers can customize to their own taste," said Micah Chase, President, Checkerboard. "Retailers can help customers personalize these products with monograms, names and dates, and using our exclusive Hue & Tone™ process, also tailor the colors of the designs to match the customer's decor to create truly personal pieces."
Since the products in the new line are ordered to nearly custom specifications by the retailer, reflective of the customer's own design preferences, there is no requirement to stock inventory, making it easy for retailers to offer a wide range of customization options that meet diverse consumer interests.
These distinctive home décor products are a great way to personalize a living space and also make great gifts. The new products include:
Wall Décor: Makes any house a home by incorporating personalized wall décor into interior design. Elegant monograms, family names and commemorative dates come together with eye-catching graphics that will have guests and family a buzz. Archival and acid free, these pieces of art will look great for years to come, and will be the springboard of conversation for equally as long.
Throw Pillows: From moody garden greens and ocean blues of a beach house, to golden yellows and vibrant pinks of a setting sun, this vivid collection of personalized pillows adds style to any sofa, banquette or bed. With bold imagery and sophisticated typography, these pillows speak volumes about individual style, and will serve as reminder of a special day, relationship or furry friend.
Personalized Dinner Plates: A whimsical addition to a wedding table setting, a perfect anniversary gift, or for everyday dining, these exquisite ceramic plates will win hearts. The addition of personal monograms or names makes these simple dishes heirlooms to be cherished, and will elevate pasta night to a whole new level.
“With the availability of this finely crafted line of lifestyle products and the ability of the retailer to tailor-design them to reflect each customer's unique personality, retailers can actually provide their customers with a truly customized piece they can legitimately call their own," said Joanne Laipson, Checkerboard Product Manager.
