Manual Woodworkers and Weavers To Introduce Personalized Fleece Blankets at Walmart


Available in spring 2010, Manual Woodworkers and Weavers will introduce an officially licensed line of personalized BSA® fleece blankets at participating Walmart stores. To personalize the blanket, customers can visit any Walmart photography kiosk to upload a photo. Once submitted, the image is sent to a photographic studio and delivered to Manual Woodworkers and Weavers to create the final product. Generally, customers should expect one week to have the blanket produced and sent back to Walmart for customer pickup.

Customers will be able to choose among a variety of different BSA® designs to customize their blanket including Cub Scouts® designs, Boy Scouts designs, and an Eagle Scout design. For more information, please visit the store associate at your local Walmart Photo Lab.
