This week, CustomInk is celebrating the delivery of t-shirts to our millionth customer. We couldn’t think of any better way to commemorate this amazing milestone than by honoring those who made it possible: You!

Please enjoy this video tribute as a token of our appreciation.

Additionally, each day this week, we will be featuring some of our more memorable Ink of the Week winners. We hope you enjoy as we stroll down memory lane and, again, we thank you for trusting us with making your events even more special.

Downright Doggone Good
November 2009: This team won the 3K Mutt Strutt Fundraiser to support the San Antonio Humane Society and raised over $2000 in donations for the shelter! They also got to take this great photo with former San Antonio Spurs great Sean Elliott.

The Price is Right!
April 2007: Twenty friends wore matching t-shirts to “The Price is Right” for a last shot at fabulous prizes before Bob Barker’s retirement. Timothy (front, third from right) ended up coming on down!

Ready, Set, Go … Kindergarten!
October 2007: Child Care Resources Inc. and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools launched the “Ready, Set, Go!” video series and community awareness campaign to help families prepare young children for kindergarten. The school district celebrated Kindergarten Day at its elementary schools on September 5, 2008. The superintendent and more than 11,000 students sported their green “Ready, Set, Go!” t-shirts to let everyone know they were ready to go to kindergarten!

Munsterman Family Bocce Tournament
We start off with a June 2004 photo of a Minnesota family who knows how to have fun. The Munstermans get together every year for 3 days of bocce. 2004 marked their 10th anniversary and the rainbow of colors captures the vibrancy of multiple generations getting together to celebrate life and have a good old time. They have a shirt for every celebration to help them remember each 3-day event.

Thanks to our customers, Dr. Phil and 17 other celebrities, 4,000+ custom t-shirts were worn to make it known – bullying is NOT okay.

But we know it can’t stop here. As part of our “Be Good to Each Other” campaign, CustomInk donated 100% of profits from your anti-bullying shirts to STOMP Out Bullying™. The money will go toward in-school bullying and cyberbullying prevention education, and more. Thanks for helping us make the campaign a success!

Three Hearts InitiativeA University of Maryland football radio announcer commented this weekend that  “we can’t recognize our troops enough,” as the station paused to honor soldiers during a break at the Maryland-Virginia game.

We here at CustomInk couldn’t agree more with that sentiment.

As part of the CustomInk Three Hearts Initiative, 100% of the profit from the sale of “Welcome Home” t-shirts on our site will be donated to the National Military Family Association from now until Dec. 31, 2011.

More than 39,000 troops are returning home to family in the remaining days of 2011. That’s a lot of t-shirts, banners, buttons, stickers and more that need creating. To help ease the process, we’ve created some  “Welcome Home” t-shirt templates especially for family and friends of soldiers returning home.

As always, feel free to design your own “Welcome Home” t-shirts in our fun and easy design lab. We have plenty of military art you can choose to make your t-shirts extra special.

Simply remember to enter voucher code “welcomehome” in the cart at checkout or mention it when you call, and we’ll make sure 100% of the profit is donated to the NMFA.

To learn more about the NMFA, visit MilitaryFamily.org.

Welcome Home, Mommy T-Shirt

Click on the Picture to Customize Your Own

It seems fitting that many of the troops deployed in Iraq will be returning home so close to Veterans Day. With President Obama’s declaration of a full troop withdrawal from Iraq by the end of 2011, roughly 39,000 soldiers are coming home some time between today and New Year’s Day.

That’s a lot of “Welcome Home” banners, t-shirts, buttons, signs, parties, parades – you name it – to get ready in a hurry. After all, they deserve it.

You know we’ve got you covered for whatever “Welcome Home” t-shirts you need to honor your special loved one returning home. But, since we also know that you’ll probably want to do more than your “Welcome Home, Mommy” or “Welcome Home, Son” t-shirts, below are a few ideas we think will make the return home even more special.
