Quite a Character Finds Niche in Personalized Gifts for Kids

New York Company Creates a Market for High-Quality, Custom-Made T-Shirts

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Quite a Character was founded on the belief that children deserve (and appreciate) unique, fun, distinctive gifts. Over the past year, the company has built a unique, creative business around its customized production process.

Quite a Character is the brainchild of Patricia Rosensteel, who has found a way to combine her artistic talent with her entrepreneurial spirit.

Quite a Character creates personalized t-shirts that combine a photo of a child's face with one of six caricature bodies to create a fun, whimsical, one-of-a-kind illustration. The custom illustration is then transferred onto a high-quality tee in the child's size, for a unique children's gift.

The process involves two steps, which allow for the creation of customized shirts -- one at a time -- and which also help assure the extraordinary quality of the finished product, at an affordable price.

Step 1: Digital imaging

The process of creating personalized shirts begins when the client uploads a child's photo through a simple online system. Quite a Character uses customized digital imaging techniques to process the photo, and then combines it with one of six unique caricature bodies, which the client chooses when he/she places the order.

Step 2: Transfer to t-shirt

Once the image has been approved, it is transferred to a high-quality 100% organic t-shirt. This provides the fun, vibrant colors that children love, while ensuring the durability that parents demand. Quite a Character t-shirts are made to hold up well to lots of wear -- and to be keepsakes for years to come.

This customized production process is unique to Quite a Character, and has helped the company create a niche market for its personalized gifts for kids.
