Who is Randesign?
We’re a small, family-owned company. We began our business in the 1970s as a mail order gift supplier for personalized baby keepsakes. Our biggest seller for nearly 30 years was our Personalized Baby Blanket. In 2005, we turned to the internet to continue to serve our loyal customers with PersonalBabyProducts.com. The site features our blanket, dinner plates, diaper covers, bibs, hats, t-shirts and more – all personalized with the baby’s name (and on some items the birthday as well).
By 2013 our personalized dinner plates had become the new fan favorite. As we were getting more requests for diverse designs and our technology had become more sophisticated, we created a new sister-site, PersonalizedKidsPlates.com. This site features over 40 new designs intended as cost-effective gifts for babies and kids. The success of this site, and again technology moving forward gave birth to this site.
PhonePhotoPlates – how it began
PhonePhotoPlates is our first venture to NOT target baby and kids gift buyers. Instead, this website is focused on the adult whose creativity is in need of expression! As with our other websites, PhonePhotoPlates is the brain child of our owner, Gary Rand. Merging the popularity of decorative dinner plates and the accessibility of high quality photos via today’s smart phones, PhonePhotoPlates is the next step in the natural evolution of our personalized products.
We’ve customized our website and ordering process to make it easier than ever for you to create your own decorative wall decor. Our plates are color accurate, weather-resistant, dishwasher safe and will never fade. Our PhonePhotoPlates are an ideal way to capture themes such as weddings, vacations or holidays and create decorative artwork to adorn the walls of your kitchens, living rooms and even basements and outdoor patios. We’d love to see your own photos of your decorative ideas!
