Here at Customized Girl our goal is to always bring you the opportunity to create totally unique and completely customized apparel and accessories. We even offer you the chance to upload your own photos so that you can create a customized product (or gift) that you (or your giftee) will cherish forever!
We’ve recently added new Frame art so that you can give your uploaded photos a fun and quirky touch!
We want to make sure that your design experience at Customized Girl is nothing but a breeze, so here are some tips to make sure your uploaded images in frames print exactly the way you want them to look!
Once you’re in the design center, select the Add Art tab. Choose the Symbols & Shapes category and you will see three different Frames subcategories to choose from.
What do the different frame options mean?
“Frames Standard” are a variety of rectangular and oval frames, ornately decorated with flowers, lines, or other designs.
“Frames Smartphone” has been created to optimize framing your smartphone photos. The iPhone takes photos at 756 x 1008 pixels and those are the dimensions we’ve made our “Frames Smartphone.” We suggest using this category for a photo you took on your phone, because you won’t have to format or crop them!
“Frames Square” are, as the name suggests, square frames. You have the option to upload a single square photo or several, depending on the frame. In this category you will find our photo strip frame!
What if my photo doesn’t fit in the frame that I want to use?
Don’t sweat! It’s an easy fix and you don’t even have to open Photoshop! There are free photo editing websites, like Webresizer, where you can easily crop and resize your photo.
To use Webresizer:
-Upload your image
-To make your rectangular photo square, select “Crop image.”
-Drag the tool until your photo is square. Be sure that it is square by checking the height and width. A square photo will have the same dimensions all around. (Ex.: 2,000 pixels x 2,000 pixels or 3,500 x 3,500. NOT 2,000 x 3,500).
-Click “apply changes”
-To make your image oval or circular for one of our “Frames Standard,” upload your image to Webresizer and select “Border.”
-Make sure you have selected the circular border option, not the square border option.
-Adjust the numbers in the box until your photo is a circle or oval. The dimensions required to turn your photo into a circle or oval will depend on the size of the image.
-Click “apply changes”
-Now that your photo is the size and shape that you want click “download this image.”
More Helpful Tips: Your photos will print with more clarity the bigger they are. Always try to use the largest image available. And always upload your photo as a .PNG. These files work best in our design center and will help us print with the best quality!
-Back in the design center, select the “Upload Image” tab. From here, simply upload your new image and center inside the frame! Add any other art or text you like to finish your custom product!
Add the item to your cart and checkout! Be sure to check your inbox for a confirmation email and tracking number! Your customized item will be with you soon!

Customized Girl is very excited to share our new We’re All Mad Here Tank Tops inspired by none other than Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. We have added John Tenniel’s version of the grinning Cheshire Cat to our abundant art collection so designing can be completely up to you! Customized Girl’s easy to use design center allows the user to take any idea and put it on a shirt.
Customized Girl is also designing t-shirts and tank tops with concepts from various classic literature such as Wizard of Oz, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Shakespeare. This is all possible due to the creative materials being available in the public domain meaning it is no longer protected by intellectual property laws. This is great news for inspiring designers and artists! Opening materials to the public domain allows individuals to innovate and spread their interpretations among new generations. Not to mention that it keeps all materials new and relevant even if it was written 100 years ago. Doesn’t seem like such a bad idea to allow everything into the public domain after a period of time, now does it?
We owe a lot to the public domain by allowing us to experiment and express our creativity in different forms of interpretation. The public domain is not only beneficial for artists but for writers and teachers alike and chances are you have enjoyed what the public domain has to offer at some point in your life. So why not build upon some of the greatest findings and stories of all time? Start using those creative juices and start designing!

Looking for an ugly Christmas sweater? We have lots of cool options! However, these aren’t your grandma’s Christmas sweaters. Our “sweaters” are actually designs that create a cool printed illusion of stitches on whatever type of shirt you want instead of the typical itchy stitched designs of yesteryear. So, you can put your design on a t-shirt, sweatshirt, hoodie or even a tank top if you’d like! Plus, we have some really cool designs. In addition to the the standard snowflake, reindeer and Christmas tree sweaters, we have mustache, cat, zombie and video game themed designs! How cool is that?
