Disguise The Surprise provides an easy and customizable way for someone giving a gift to disguise the item inside of a shirt box. Disguise The Surprise includes pieces of varying lengths that you move around until you find a tailored fit for your gift. They are easy to assemble, sturdy and hold your gift in place (not like a gift bag where your present moves all around). We designed buffer pieces to hold your item snug in it's place and a riser to help with shallow gifts like a video game.
This will work for any item that would fit inside a shirt box. Perfect to disguise a cell phone, jewelry box, video game, DVD, man's tie...the list goes on. To make it easy, we put together some suggestions for you, including pictures, so you can see what it looks like.
Unfortunately not every shirt box is the same size. Most are 15" x 9.5" x 2". The pieces in this kit will fit perfectly into that size when left straight. Some boxes are shorter in length (around 14.25" long). To accommodate for this, we designed something called a living hinge at 3/4" from one of the ends (on the long pieces). If you have a shorter box, you can fold in the hinge so it fits on the length. Most of the widths are around 9.5". Now, we are not magic and there will be some that it won't fit. That is why we offer the option to purchase a shirt box from us so you are guaranteed a perfect fit.
The tool to make the plastic parts was made at Comet Die in Elmhurst, IL (just outside Chicago). The pieces to the Disguise The Surprise kit are manufactured in St. Louis, MO at MDS Manufacturing. The plastic pieces are made with the injection mold process. The Disguise The Surprise® Company is located in St. Louis, MO.
