iComfie: There's A Nap For That
For those who are enthusiastic sports fans and/or music lovers, showing your pride for your favorite team or band is a given. Whether hats, wristbands, jackets, or whatever your memorabilia - having a collection shows how passionate you truly are. But for those of us who are avid iDevice and jailbreak users, the selection is limited. A few wristbands and t-shirts comprise the entirety of iDevice and jailbreak accessories and memorabilia. A recently founded company aims to merge comfort with your iDevice and jailbreak passion. iComfie creates pillows and plushies to satisfy your crave for comfort and your dedication to the iDevice and jailbreak community.
Based out of Canada, iComfie makes and sells iDevice and jailbreak pillows and plushies. The pillows and plushies come in various designs and are completely handmade.
Pillows are made out of a combination of fleece and fabric while the plushies are made of fabric. The pillows are standard pillows with embroidered images while the plushies resemble a 3D icon and are shaped as such.
Their current offering includes 16 pillows and 5 plushies. Some of the pillow and plushie designs include the following:
But what truly makes iComfie unique is that you can create custom designs and send them in to be made. All that is required is that you send them the design you want. From there, they'll do the rest.
The pillows cost $15 (+ shipping/handling) and the plushies cost $10 (+shipping/handling). Custom pillows vary in price starting from $20 and range depending on the picture chosen. Shipping takes anywhere from 2-6 weeks and depends on which design or pillow you decide.
iComfie started about 6 months ago and has had great success, already selling nearly 1000 different pillows.
iComfie's pillows are high quality and worth every penny. They are handmade, and the work put into each pillow truly makes them an intricate piece of art. And with the custom pillow option, you can express your own idea.
Check out a few pillow designs made for some people you may have heard of in the iDevice jailbreak community. Courtesy of the following individuals:
Nick and Stephanie Battaglia (@iBattaglia) (@XruntX), the founders of iComfie, have been extremely gracious and were willing to undergo an MMi exclusive interview. In the following 15 minute video, learn more about iComfie and get an inside look on how the designs and pillows are created.
If you didn't catch this in the video, iComfie will be releasing more games plushies soon. Be on the lookout! And I apologize for the mistake, the correct URL is www.icomfie.com.
