About

Boys, Boys, Everywhere Boys...

At least it seemed like it at the time. All our family had were little boys (lots of them) and finding cute clothes and gifts for them was just not as fun as getting gifts for the little girls that other people were having. Simply Sublime Baby was born out of my need to find cute, creative baby clothes for boys.

I have been creative all of my life, but making a living at it for the past 10 years has been a dream come true. My graphic design experience is life learned and has been my biggest passion ever since I purchased my very first computer nearly 25 years ago.

I am one of those people who literally woke up one morning and knew that I could make a living off of my creativity. I was never an expert at any one craft, but I had the desire and determination to learn, master and succeed at whatever I chose to do. After building on my love of design and months of research I created a line of special occasion personalized gifts.

I taught myself how to build a website from scratch and started marketing and selling them on my own website almost 10 years ago. My personalized products have been shipped worldwide and have even been featured on the Today Show on two separate occasions.

After the birth of my two grandsons a few years ago, my new obsession was designing gifts and decor for them. I decided to open my Etsy shop in June of 2011 purely for the love of designing children's clothing and gifts. The reception has been great and I now sell my children's items in boutiques and online stores all over the US and in several other countries as well.

Etsy has been the perfect venue for my children's line as it allows me to focus more on the creative side of my business. I also love coming up with custom designs for customers. In fact, many of the designs I now offer where originally inspired by their suggestions.

Running two businesses has kept me pretty busy and I couldn't do it without the help of my youngest daughter Rachel and my brother-in-law Jon.

Rachel is my part-time help and fills in with whatever chore that needs to be done whether it's counting inventory, pressing, folding or running errands for me. I don't know what I'll do when she goes back to college!

Jon is the one who takes care of the paperwork and bookkeeping for me. I hate paperwork and bookkeeping. A lot. He also does all of the shipping and fields all of my phone calls for me. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have any time for designing, testing new product ideas and production. Thank you Jon!

I get asked a lot as to the origin of the name Simply Sublime. For me, it's a perfect compilation of both the name of the digital printing process I use as well as the sublimely beautiful colors I am able to achieve.

I love running my own business and being my own boss. I can't imagine doing anything else with my life, other than spending time with my family, and our newest addition, Lily. ...Yep, a little girl:-)

Welcome to Simply Sublime Baby.

We offer unique baby and toddler tees with one of a kind designs personalized with your little ones name. All fabric items are made of a super soft 100% polyester and printed on both the front and back of each garment (blankets and bibs are one-sided) using a specialized imaging technique that is completely safe against baby's tender skin.

My items are digitally printed using a baby safe digital imprinting technique which cannot be felt. The image will not fade, crack or bleed and is permanently embedded into the fibers. Even bleaching will not affect the colors:-)

T-shirts and bodysuits are:

● 100% POLYESTER and machine washable and dryable. Will not shrink when washed. Fabric is slightly thinner and silkier than traditional cotton t-shirts but is super soft and safe for your child's skin. Available in short sleeves only but they look adorable layered over long sleeved tees:-)

● THE IMAGE (as well as background colors and patterns), is printed onto a pre-made, white, item. Because of this, the seams along the sides and under the arms (and under the laps of the bodysuits) will have some irregularities where the dye cannot reach. *Small folds and wrinkles may also occur within the print.* This is not a flaw and cannot be avoided. They reflect the handmade craftsmanship of each item and should not be considered imperfections.

● SIZING: Some sizes may fit small! Please measure one of the shirts that your child normally wears (just the shirt laying flat, not on the child). Then purchase the size that is closest to those measurements.
I do not offer exchanges if you purchase the wrong size.

T-SHIRT SIZES AVAILABLE: (Measurements shown in inches)

~12-18mo - ( L. 13.5" - W. 11" )
~ 2T - ( L. 15.25" - W. 11.75" )

~ 9/10 - ( L. 22.75" - W. 17.75" )

All shirt widths (W) measured from under the arms (chest) while laid flat. All lengths (L) measured from bottom of shirt to the highest point of the shoulder.

BODYSUIT SIZES AVAILABLE: (Measurements shown in inches)

● SIZING: The bodysuits fit small! Please measure one of the shirts that your child normally wears (the shirt, not the child), then purchase the size that is closest to those measurements.

I do not offer exchanges if you purchase the wrong size.

● SIZES AVAILABLE: (Measurements shown in inches)

~ NEWBORN: approx. 0-3mos - ( L. 14" - W. 8" )
~ SMALL: approx. 3-6mos - ( L. 14.5" - W. 8.1/4" )
~ MEDIUM: approx. 6-12mos - ( L. 16.3/4" - W. 8.5" )
~ LARGE: approx. 12-18mos - ( L. 17.1/4" - W. 9.3/4" )

All shirt widths (W) measured from under the arms (chest) while laid flat. All lengths (L) measured from bottom of bodysuit while snapped to the highest point of the shoulder.

● MEASUREMENTS are approximate. The exact measurements can vary slightly.

● COLORS: Please understand that your monitor's calibration will affect the colors you see on your screen and may not be an exact match with the printed item. The artwork, as it appears on your computer screen, is almost certainly not accurate since every computer screen renders color differently. Please understand that I cannot guarantee a specific color & will not offer refunds due to color issues.

CUSTOMER FAQ.s:

Q. Is the image on the bodysuits and t-shirts screen printed or appliqued?

A. Neither. It is digitally printed using a baby safe imprinting technique which cannot be felt. The image will not fade, crack or bleed and is permanently embedded into the fibers. Even bleaching will not affect the colors:-)

Q: What does the back of this bodysuits/tshirt look like?

A: The backs of the garments are printed with the same background pattern, sometimes the image on the front even wraps around to the back. That way baby looks just as cute no matter which direction he is heading.

Q. Can you do long sleeved tshirts or bodysuits?

A. No. The process I use to print the toddler t-shirts and baby bodysuits requires a particular type of fabric. Unfortunately they do not make long sleeves in this fabric content - yet. I will offer them if they ever do make them available.

Q. Can you make larger sizes?

A. Not at this time. Because the images are an all over print, the equipment I use at this time only allows for sizes up to a childs size 5/6. Hopefully, I can upgrade to larger equipment after the first of the year. Once I do, it will allow me to do t-shirts all the way up to adult sizes. I have my fingers crossed:-)

Q. If I send you a cotton bodysuits/tshirt, can you print on that for me?

A. The process I use for printing dyes the fabric. It will not adhere to natural fibers and is the reason I have to use polyester bodysuits and tshirts.

Q. Can you get this to me by the end of the week?

A. It depends, just convo me your state and zip code and the date you need it by and I will give you a shipping quote for expedited shipping if needed.

Q. Do you make a custom design for my child's birthday, etc.?

A. If I have the time, I would love to create something using a particular theme of your choosing! Just convo me your request. If it is something I feel that is within my abilities I will let you know right away.

O. Why does my items colors look different in person than it does on the computer screen?

A. Please understand that your monitor's calibration will affect the colors you see on your screen and may not be an exact match with the printed item. The artwork, as it appears on your computer screen, is almost certainly not accurate since every computer screen renders color differently. Please understand that I cannot guarantee a specific color & will not offer refunds due to color issues.

Q. Do you sell your items wholesale?

A. Sorry, no. Due to the items being personalized, I am unable to sell at wholesale, but I do have a drop ship program for those with retail websites. If you are interested in selling our items on your website, please let me know your email address and I will email the application and details.

Thanks for looking!
