An easy way to add some personality to your home, there are lots of different types of covers to choose from including cotton and silk pillowcases. Plus, there are plenty of photo options too. You just need to decide whether you want the lettering on your cases to be embroidered, sewn or printed on.

Things to consider when buying a personalised pillowcase

Material - Whether it's silk or cotton, double-check that your chosen design is made out of the fabric you'd prefer, as you want them to match with your kids duvet cover and existing bedding, right?

Size - There's nothing more annoying than buying pillowcases which don't fit their intended pillow is there? So, do your research and either make a note of the size you need or purchase the case first, and then the correlating pillow afterwards.

Text - Opt for a design where the text is legible, otherwise it's not worth paying extra for customisation if you're unable to read what it says! Some options will have plenty of fonts, colours and character limits to choose from.

Photos - If you're having images printed onto the cover, make sure that they're not too blurry or distorted beforehand as this could affect the quality of the final result.
