Bedding With Digital Prints

This soft duvet cover may be straightforward and simple. The only thing that stands out is that dog that’s sleeping on top of it. Pets make beds messy, but not this dog, who actually has a name — Bob.

Bob will leave paw prints, stinky dog smell and dog fur on the bed. And he will be sleeping on this all the time. It’s because Bob is a digitally printed dog, and even with multiple washings, this print won’t fade away.
