Fathers Day

It’s time to celebrate Dad! We rounded up the top things the whole family can do with dad, or anyone who is like a dad, this Father’s Day. Inkers even got in on the fun to share some of their favorite Father’s Day memories. Enjoy!

1. Fire up the grill and host a cookout.
Nothing says summer like a good barbecue with family and friends. This year, Father’s Day happens to fall on the first day of summer, so dust off the grill, bring out the steaks, and celebrate the new season and Dad at the same time.

“My favorite Father’s Day was the first one since I became a father. My father and
father-in-law met and we had a big cookout with the whole family. Much fun was had!”
– Matt G. Production

2. Root for the home (or away!) team at a baseball game.
Take dad out to enjoy America’s favorite pastime and cheer on his team. You can also have your own baseball – or wiffle ball – game in your backyard or at a park.

Last year my wife took me and my son to his first baseball game on the Fourth of July for Father’s Day. The greatest American Dad’s day ever. My son loved the ball game. He caught a game ball and ate a hot dog, peanuts, and Cracker Jacks. It was a perfect day!
– Doug C. Production Art

3. See a movie on the big screen.
Get out of the heat and see a movie in your local theater. Dad will appreciate having some uninterrupted time to unwind.

“My dad lives over 100 miles away, in a town that has never had a movie theater. So, when Father’s Day rolls around, we go to the movies – Dad’s choice!”
– Jill G. Satisfaction Assurance

4. Cast some lines and go fishing.
Spend the day outdoors and focus on some quality family time. While you’re waiting for the fish to bite, take the time to catch up and bring along a picnic lunch.

“My grandfather or ‘Papa,’ as we call him, is the rock of our family. We usually get our whole family together and go fishing. It’s the best feeling in the world being with the man that I call my Dad since he pretty much raised me, and having my kids learn how to fish from my absolute hero.”
– Chris L. Production Art

5. Hit the range and go golfing
A Father’s Day get-together at the golf course is sure to score you an ace with dad. For something a little more laid back and may be better for the little ones, take the whole family to your local mini-golf course.

Now that you’ve got ideas for what to do, try creating a custom t-shirt for a unique gift. Start with one of our professionally designed Father’s Day templates or create your own original masterpiece. Create just one for him, or more for the whole gang to celebrate the day.

#TEAMRICKY for Autism Awareness!” and “Saving Babies One Step at a Time” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!


In bright tie-dye shirts for all to see, Team Ricky gathered in a shady spot during Washington’s Grant County Autism Awareness Walk. To show Ricky some extra love, and to help him stand out during the walk, individual red t-shirts were ordered for him and his parents.


For over twenty years, John Yeates Middle School has participated in the annual March for Babies in Suffolk, Virginia to help save babies one step at a time. For the past few years, they have turned to CustomInk to design shirts to be worn and sold at the walk.

For most of us without children, playgrounds are a place of the past. There, lines between cool and uncool were drawn, scrapes and bruises were worn with glory, games were won and lost, and at times, when eyes were diverted, dirt was eaten.

While your body may not fit in the seat of a swing as it once did, and you may not have the endless energy of a kid, the fun of playgrounds can and does continue on. How you ask? With kickball, of course! From choosing the perfect kickball team name to creating a cool kickball design, it’s a blast to round bases even if your legs don’t move quite as fast.

No matter where you’re playing, whether it be a park, softball field, or just your backyard, spice up your life with a little blast from the past. It’s a great way to spend much needed time with friends or experience stress-free fun with coworkers. And, if you’re looking to expand your social circle, consider joining an adult sports league in your area.

Have fun and don’t forget the Band-Aids!
