I've received this Goupon over for personalized photo blanket for $59. It measures 71" by 53". I supply up to 4 photos to be on the blanket. I expected this to be something screen printed on an already woven blanket, but according to this:

PhotoWeavers' blankets warm with in-woven images that are higher quality than their screen-printed counterparts.

the image is woven in. Is the technology available to do this so cheap? I'm really looking at this with some skepticism. I haven't included a link because I'm not sure if forum rules allow it.

But a family cat is not replaceable like a wornout coat or a set of tires. Each new kitten becomes its own cat, and none is repeated. I am four cats old, measuring out my life in friends that have succeeded but not replaced one another.--Irving Townsend

I went directly to the photo weavers web site and there is a short video which has short, but very good look at the blanket being woven. It is woven at high speed and the image is definitely being woven into the blanket, not screen printed. The speed is quite amazing.
