spreadshirt funny tshirt

Custom printed t-shirts have exploded in popularity over the last decade, since there are so many great options around. Printing your own t-shirt is quick and simple, and these make perfect gifts for birthdays, hen and stag parties and many more occasions. Maybe you just want to add some personality to your wardrobe and create something truly unique. Whatever you’re looking for, chances are you’ll find it online.

Depending on the kind of printing you need, the choice of designs, sizes and so on, you might want to consider different options. However, it can be overwhelming searching for the best t-shirt printing companies, so we’re saving you the trouble by compiling this list of five excellent choices.

Hoodyworld

Hoodyworld is a printing company offering a huge range of products other than t-shirts, and you can enjoy great discounts if you’re ordering in bulk, but the prices are affordable even if you only need one or two custom designs printed. The simple website structure allows you to easily pick your style of clothing before going ahead and finalising your custom design.

Spreadshirt

Spreadshirt is a great platform that allows you to have your own store to showcase your original designs, and users can browse the entire site and order any of the designs featured.

Best & Worst UK Mobile Phone Networks

Choosing a mobile phone

When choosing a mobile phone, it’s a difficult enough choice when you have to consider different manufacturers, contract lengths, whether to buy a phone outright or not, and many more considerations about the phone itself. That’s without even looking into mobile networks, and on the surface many of them seem to offer the same deals. How can you possibly choose? Fortunately (or unfortunately for some providers), there are answers. We’ve awarded each of the main networks with a particular certification to make the process easier for you.

Worst Network: Vodafone

This is a rather unfortunate title to begin with, but it has to be said. Vodaphone is having a bad year, and in summer 2016 they became the centre of a large scale controversy due to Ofcom’s involvement with their customer service issues. After upgrading their billing system in 2015, no end of problems have ensued for a large proportion of their customers, giving them a dire reputation for handling complaints and making them one to avoid altogether until further notice.

Best Performance: EE

Having merged with so many different networks over time and changed hands so many times, EE remains a bit of a mystery despite its broad reach. Despite the confusion over its name and ownership, however, being in the business for many years has seemingly helped its infrastructure. EE has built up a reputation for the best and most consistent service when it comes to calls, texts, data, signal coverage and overall reliability. No other major network can match it in tests, as of late last year. Continue reading

5 Premium Chocolate Brands to Try

Godiva chocolates

For many of us, chocolate is one of the treats we always come back to. It’s especially good if you really know what your favourite premium brands are, so you can treat yourself once in a while. If you’re not so keen on the cheaper kids’ brands and you’re a little tired of the same old options on the high street, head online and check out some of the UK’s leading premium collections. These master chocolatiers are aiming their products squarely at the discerning adult market, and some of their offerings are more than a little indulgent, so be warned!

1) Hotel Chocolat

You may, in fact, find this particular example on your local high street after all. They’ve opened many shops in the UK after exploding in popularity, but their full range is only available online for the most part. Although on the pricey side, the chocolates themselves really are impressive. Be careful with any alcoholic centres, as they pack quite a punch! Some of their best selections can be found under the wedding and anniversary gifts section.

2) Godiva

Proving that Belgians really are the chocolate masters, Godiva have 90 years of experience crafting some of the most beautiful looking chocolate gifts around. They recently released several special items to celebrate their anniversary, marking nine decades in the business with the “1926” Rose & Raspberry Dessert and a range of chocolate ice cream flavours, as well as the more classic chocolate selection boxes.

Dell laptops

There are plenty of great deals to be found online when it comes to computers and laptops, being one of the most competitive markets out there. ITC Sales offers an alternative option for anyone who may be hesitant to pay high prices from bigger electronic superstores. They specialise in Dell laptops and computers, but also stock a great range from other manufacturers. The unique selling point is that the majority of their products are manufacturer refurbished or end of line, and come with heavily discounted price tags.

There’s no need to be wary of the products available from ITC Sales, since they have official partnerships with Dell and several other major manufacturers. As partners and distributors of factory-refurbished computers and laptops, you can rest assured that your purchases will still be in fantastic working order. Refurbished models found on their store are very often simple returns or cancelled orders, so most of them have barely been used, if at all. The main difference is that since the products have been opened, they can’t be sold as brand new and come in at bargain prices as a result. Continue reading

Top 5 Collectible Bear Brands

Teddy Bears

Teddy bears are one of the most enduring and iconic children’s toys of modern times, with hundreds of years of history making them fascinating as well as adorable. It’s easy to see why many adults love them too, and for serious collectors it’s all about the best manufacturers. Here are five of our favourite brands, including some real vintage classics as well as contemporary lines that capture the same spirit.

Charlie Bears1) Charlie Bears

If there is any modern brand that really embodies the charm of classic teddy bears, it’s the wonderful range of Charlie bears launched originally in 2005. This Cornish brand is now sold and recognised around the world, and covers a fantastic range including baby toys, travel buddies and special edition models, making it one of our personal favourites.

Steiff Bears2) Steiff Bears

The story of this iconic brand goes all the way back to 1847, with the company officially starting to manufacture high quality teddy bears in 1880. Since then the brand has gained legendary status as one of the most pioneering companies in the business, and Steiff can take a lot of the credit for making collectors fall in love with bears.

Best Budget School Uniform Shops

Marks & Spencer school uniform

“Back to school” is always a big promotional campaign across the high street and supermarket aisles, but what parents really need are good value, high quality clothes that will look smart, be comfortable and stand up to a bit of wear and tear. Working out the most cost effective place to buy schoolwear can be tricky, as you have to factor in the expected lifespan of each item and think about when it will need replacing, but here are some ideas to get you started.

John Lewis

Although some of their product ranges are on the higher end of the budget for a lot of parents, their back to school range is impressively smart and affordable. A few select schools across the UK actually use John Lewis as the official supplier for their uniforms.

Littlewoods

The classic catalogue shop has always been great for finding bargains in the kids’ clothes section, and when it comes to Back to School 2016 they’re no exception. They specialise in multi-packs so you can get several shirts or pairs of trousers for not much money at all. Continue reading

Graze.com Review

If you’ve bought anything in any shop in the last few years, especially online, you have probably come across vouchers for a free Graze box at some point. Their promotional campaign has been going strong for years, but you may still not have claimed your free box. It turns out that now is as good a time as any to try it out for yourself!

Essentially, Graze offers a regular subscription service for snacks. It’s not hard to find special offers (or get a referral code from a friend) which allow you to get your 1st, 5th and 10th boxes free, provided you pay £3.99 per box for the rest until then. The premise is that you can enjoy healthy, convenient and tasty food delivered right to your door. What’s not to like?

Graze Box

When you sign up, they make the process extremely quick and simple, although it’s possible to spend a while on the site once you realise the entire menu is there to peruse. First you have the chance to rule out any particular ingredients you don’t like, which automatically labels some of the menu choices as “binned”. You can then look through the whole selection and score things according to your level of interest. This should affect how likely you are to receive each item in your box. Continue reading

How To Buy Stylish Clothing For Your Body Shape

women fashionThere are many great trends arising this year and it may be ideal for you to find the best way to dress for your body shape to prevent buying a clothing piece that doesn’t suit your body type. When shopping for new clothing, one should consider which style would look the most flattering for them. For women who are short in height may want to focus on choosing a piece that slims and elongates her body. Fitted jeans paired with a layered top create a slim and elegant look.

Women with curvy and plus size body types may want to consider looking at online shops that specifically have clothing lines for their size. For example, you can check out shops like Evans, Simply Be and Yours Clothing as they have a great selection of clothing for plus size women.

When it comes to fashion for men, one of the most important elements to consider is the fit. Many men aren’t aware of what size they wear and may just pick something off the rack and try to estimate their size. For instance, when picking a more formal look, such as an outfit for work or a suit, it’s vital that they try the outfit first to see if it fits them. Or getting the right measurements for their body will help them find the perfect suit for their size. No matter what body type, having the right fit is a great way to accentuate one’s best features.

Men who are looking for a casual style should try on a variety of sizes to get a sense of what works well for their body. Much like women, they can consider which body parts they like the most and find something that will emphasize it.

When shopping for the newest trends in 2017, consider buying a clothing piece that works well for your body type. With so many trends available, there is a new look out there for everyone.  Start choosing a piece that will make you look and feel fashionable, comfortable, and confident this year.

Not On The High Street – Review

Not On The High Street (or NOTHS) has been around for 10 years now, specialising in hard-to-find products that are a cut above what you’ll get from your average high street retailer. They specialise in providing a platform for undiscovered, creative people and businesses looking to get their products seen by a wider audience.

As a potential buyer, there are many benefits to NOTHS. The way products are presented is quite refreshing, and looks somewhat like a personal blog or a Pinterest board as opposed to a traditional e-commerce store. You’ll find it easy to search by theme, or occasion if you’re looking for gifts. Even if you don’t immediately come across what you’re looking for, usually you will find that inspiration isn’t far away since a lot of related but different products will be suggested in each section.

In terms of the products being offered, it’s obvious straight away that there is an emphasis on quality. However, if you expect that homemade items from small businesses will always be overpriced, you may be in for a pleasant surprise. Much of the appeal of this site is obviously based around avoiding major retail chains, and a big part of that is cutting out inflated prices that have to cover the costs of distributing products on the high street.
