I love the idea of being able to customize my own goods (clearly!). Whether it is as simple as adding monogram to a piece if garment, getting your own t-shirts printed, or going as far as designing your own pair of shoes, there’s something so special about getting involved in the production process. It makes the final product that much more meaningful.
Hence I was so excited when I was introduced to May28th – an accessories brand that has a product called “INSTAWATCH” that allows you to design your own watch by uploading any photo or image from your computer or Instagram. I spent some time over the weekend trying their online watch platform and you probably imagine, I went a wee bit out of control! The options are endless and they’re only $44 a pop!
Here’s how it works in a nutshell – upload a photo/image (you can also browse their pre-set designs), scale to size, select your color preferences for your watch band, buckle, and watch arm, add to cart, and abracadabra!
Here are a few of my own creations! You can also share your designs with your social networks.
Can you guess which one I ended up with?!
I’ll be sure to reveal it when the watch arrives (follow me on Instagram for the reveal!). If you want to see some of May28th’s other watch designs, follow them on Instagram @May28th. They don’t only carry customized watches but they have a great collection of their own designs (starting at $39) and also a recent collab with Kate Spade’s sister, Saturday!
I’ll be stopping into May28th’s expanded Toronto studio later this week, their studio is officially open to public on Sept 28, 2013 at 198 Walnut Avenue, #8, Toronto, ON.
Enjoy your day, and make a watch will ya?! 😉
