Last Christmas I bought my mom a set of four square plates with my designs...one for each of the four seasons. I really liked how they came out, except that the design for the bird plate was smaller than it looked in the preview, and was a little off-center. I probably could have gotten that replaced (CafePress is usually good about that)...but I just didn't take the time to do it.
After nearly a year of use, the plates seemed to have fared well. They do show some signs of use though. The bird plate was scratched when a steak knife was used on it...as you can see below. So, it's probably best to not use sharp knives on these.
