I was given the opportunity to review one of the items from Initials, Inc.’s new Spring & Summer 2013 Collection.
A bit about Initials, Inc.
“Launched officially as a Direct Selling Association party plan company in early 2005, Initials, Inc. is now represented by thousands of Independent Creative Partners throughout the United States.” But you don’t need to host a party or even become a consultant to make a purchase, you can buy online! I don’t know a consultant personally, so having to find a stranger in my area and then go to or host a party is just not something I personally want to do. So I like the fact that I can order these great products directly online!
I went with the Get a Big Grip in a Cabo pattern. I wanted something large enough to take to the kids’ baseball games. Considering we are at the fields about 10 times a week, I like to bring toys, food, and drinks to keep everyone happy. This bag is huge; look at the top picture; I was able to put 2 jumbo toss pillows in the bag with ease. The Big Grip has 9 pockets on the outside but none on the inside. I would have liked to have seen at least one pocket to “hide” keys or money. But I do love this bag, it gives me enough room for all my stuff! The stitching on the letter “G” was done nicely as well, with no loose threads. I can’t wait to see what they come out with for the fall…I will be needing something for football season!
Once you pick out your items that run the gamut from purses, totes, lunch boxes, organizers, wallets, and bins, to travel accessories and baby blankets, the fun begins! Now you get to personalize your product…for FREE! 5 different personalization styles, 10 different fonts, and 17 colors to choose from for the font! Don’t worry, though, there is also a suggestion guide for each pattern that is available to let you know what color for the personalization will look best with the pattern you choose.
The Get a Big Grip Tote runs $45 and is available in four other patterns: Gray Ikat, Black Swirl, Chocolate, and Black. This style of tote bag is also available in a small size too for $30.
UPDATE 2023: This company is no longer in business, but some styles can be found on eBay.
