What Are Petsies Custom Pajamas? How Does It Work?

Petsies is the sister company of Budsies, a Florida-based business focusing on custom gifts like dolls modeled after children, plushies modeled after a child’s artwork, and custom bobbleheads and figurines. While Budsies’ focal point is human-based products, Petsies specializes in—you guessed it—custom pet-related goodies. Their current line-up includes items such as stuffed animals modeled after your pets, pet-shaped pillows, pet photo blankets, and, of course, pajamas.

Petsies pajamas allow you to personalize a pair with your pet’s face(s) on them. Customers choose the style of sleepwear they prefer (long, short, or a mix of both) and a design option like pink hearts, rainbows, pineapples, or solid colors, among a handful of other options.

The pajamas are made of a polyester-spandex blend and are available in sizes from small to 3XL. The customization process is as simple as choosing the type of pajamas you’d like, picking from one of the 22 design options, and uploading a photo of your pet.

Petsies Custom Pajamas Pricing

The Petsies pajamas are priced fairly, given the customized nature of their product line. The shorts/short sleeve shirt set is $59.00 USD, while their long pants/long sleeve shirt set is $89.00.

If you choose to mix and match shorts with long sleeves or pants with short sleeves, you’ll pay for each item individually. Both the long and short-sleeved shirts are $39.00. The long pants cost $49.00, while the shorts cost just $29.00.

What to Expect From Petsies Custom Pajamas

The Petsies custom pajamas arrived in a colorful bag adorned with the company’s logo. My pajama set was neatly folded inside another plastic bag, so when I pulled out my new pajamas, they were wrinkle-free and ready to wear, with no washing necessary.

I am Canadian and had to pay duties on this item. Canada Post delivered this item to my door. It was roughly $15.00 CAD. This was an unexpected cost for me as I rarely ever have to pay additional duty on items from other countries.

  • 96% polyester and 4% spandex blend
  • Sizes from small to 3XL

Material Quality

The 96% polyester and 4% spandex blend feels silky and smooth on the skin. This material is great for wicking moisture away from the skin, ensuring wearers stay comfortable and dry during those hot summer nights. In addition, the pajamas are very cool and lightweight, and the material has a bit of stretch to it, making it even more comfortable.

Image Quality

The quality of your pet’s image printed on your pajamas will depend on the quality of the picture you supplied. I uploaded an image of my cat Finnley in a low light setting, so I wasn’t sure how well it would translate to the pajamas. I was pleasantly surprised, however, with how the image turned out.

It looks just like the photo I uploaded and isn’t too pixelated or dark, given the less-than-stellar quality image I uploaded. The printer captured every feature of my Finnley’s sweet face perfectly.

Ease of Care

The manufacturer’s website suggests customers handwash these pajamas with a mild detergent in cold water. It says you can machine wash them, though washing them separately on a gentle cycle is recommended.

However, the tag on the pajamas suggests washing by hand only and not tumble drying. This can be a little bothersome for people who prefer the convenience of machine washing and drying.

I’m a busy mom with little spare time to handwash clothes. I’m also extremely irresponsible and guilty of putting the most delicate articles of clothing in the wash against the manufacturer’s directions. I didn’t want to risk ruining my new pajamas, so I followed Petsies’ directions for washing them separately on the gentle cycle with mild detergent. I then allowed them to air dry. Though the process is a little more time-consuming because you must wait for them to dry, they washed beautifully. Nothing shrunk or stretched out, so I’m very pleased.

Are Petsies Custom Pajamas a Good Value?

At its current sale price of $59.00 USD for the short-sleeved shirt and shorts set or $89.00 USD for the long-sleeve shirt and pants set, Petsies custom pajamas provide great value for pet owners looking to wear their pets face to bed every night. While they are costlier than what I’d usually pay for sleepwear (especially when you factor in the exchange rate), the pajamas’ customized nature and high-quality manufacturing make it worthwhile.

FAQ

What sizes are available?

The Petsies custom pajamas are available in sizes from Small to 3XL. The website has a thorough sizing guide for their long pants/long sleeve shirt and shorts/short sleeve shirt options. Please note that their sizing is unisex, so it’s important that you take your measurements and check their size chart to avoid disappointment.

I also highly recommend double-checking your measurements to ensure you’re getting the size that fits you best, as the company does not accept returns. If you’re in between sizes, I suggest you size up to be on the safe side.

What if the pajamas don’t fit?

As mentioned above, Petsies does not offer returns for custom products. So if you order the wrong size, you’ll, unfortunately, be stuck with it. Thankfully, the company does offer to remake the pajamas for you at a discounted rate of 50%.

What if I want shorts with a long-sleeved shirt?

The Petsies website allows you to mix and match shirt/pant options when customizing your pajamas. You will need to add each item to your cart individually if you choose not to go with the premade styles (e.g., shorts with a short-sleeved shirt or long pants with a long-sleeved shirt).

Can I have more than one pet on my pajamas?

Yes, you can add one additional face to your pajamas for $2.00. However, there doesn’t appear to be a way to add more than two pets.

Our Experience with Petsies Custom Pajamas

The ordering process with Petsies was simple and foolproof. First, you’ll need to upload a good-resolution photo of your pet with its face visible, and the company’s team will handle the rest of the design process. You can choose between over 20 designs for the pajamas to accompany your pet’s image. I decided on the Mauve Hearts background, and it’s super cute and very true to the image on the website.

The Petsies website says they have a two to three-week turnaround time, which I found quite accurate. However, shipping was lightning-fast which I was pleasantly surprised with. I am Canadian, and most U.S.-based shipments take several weeks to arrive.

As mentioned above, I had to pay duties on the pajamas, which was unexpected. It was only $15, but it’s something to keep in mind and potentially budget for if you’re an international customer.

The material is different than I was expecting, though not in a bad way. Most pajamas I own are made of cotton or flannel. The Petsies polyester-spandex blend is interesting as it feels more like athletic performance wear than pajamas. Though I’d never usually choose this type of material for sleepwear, I really like its feel and found it quite comfortable to wear and sleep in. I run hot at night but found the material quite cool to sleep in. I can’t weigh in on how it feels during the cooler months of the year, as it’s summer here in Canada right now, but I can say these pajamas passed the hot weather comfort test.

While the sizing is accurate, I don’t particularly care for the fit of the shorts. The elastic band is a bit tighter than I prefer, but that’s a personal preference. It would be nice if there were a way for customers to order the shirt in one size and the bottoms in another. While you can purchase the shirt and bottoms individually, in the case of the short sleeve shirt and short bottoms set, it costs extra to buy them separately ($39 for the shirt and $29 for the bottoms) than buying the set together at $59.

In the case of the long sleeve shirt ($39) and long bottoms ($49), it actually costs a dollar less to buy them individually than as a set for some reason. Ultimately, this wasn’t a deal breaker for me as the shorts still fit, but it’s something to remember if your bottom and top half are different sizes.

Conclusion

The Petsies custom pajamas are an awesome personalized gift to give yourself or your animal-loving friends or family members. While the pajamas aren’t cheap, they’re very high-quality and more than worth the price in my opinion.

The material feels high-end and comfortable, and I love that there are 22 design options to choose from. The image quality corresponds to the quality of the picture you upload for the company to work with. Finally, I love that the company is inclusive to people of differing sizes, as they offer up to 3XL, though it would be nice to have a few more plus sizes and even an extra small option, too.

These pajamas have earned their way into my regular sleepwear rotation. It’s too bad that they take so long to air dry; otherwise, I’d probably wear them to bed every night.
