“Manly Camping Weekend – Sweaty T-shirt Transfer” and “The Golden Elite Force Dancers” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

Ink of the Week winners

The guys pictured here look forward to their men’s beach camping trip every year, for eight years running. During their most recent trip to Cape Hatteras, the guys sported neon orange shirts during a game of ultimate frisbee on the beach. During the game, “a ridiculously awesome chest-bump occurred, which resulted in the accidental invention of the sweaty t-shirt transfer.”

Ink of the Week winners

Looking “more elite than ever,” the Golden Elite Force Dancers take a minute to pose before their basketball half time show performance. We love how happy these first-time customers look in their new dance uniforms!

IOTW Photo Contest

For over six years, we’ve been collecting customer stories in our Ink of the Week contest. Throughout the years, we’ve heard from some truly amazing customers about how their CustomInk orders helped to unite their community and take their event to the next level. To show you some of the communities we’ve touched, we’ve compiled a handful of stories that caught our eye this past month.

 

CandyGive up the Candy!

The dental office of Allen & Kelly Smudde have been ordering shirts with us for six years for Operation Gratitude: Candy Buyback. The event encourages kids in their community to give up their Halloween candy in exchange for money (for themselves and their schools). After gathering candy, hand-written letters, and other treats, they send everything to our troops serving overseas. Pictured here is the community that participated in last year’s event.

“Rogers Rock 2015” and “Giddy Girlz 2015” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

fanfav8.27

This family has been vacationing together at Rogers Rock Campground in scenic Lake George, NY for the past 50 years. Through the decades, more family has been added, more fun has been had, and more love has been shared. This year they decided to make the trip even more epic by adding the element of custom designed t-shirts. During the gathering, people stopped to ask where they were from and how long they had been traveling to Lake George. Each question turned into a story to share, and they made new friends along the way. This photograph depicts three generations of campers wearing their Rogers Rock t-shirts while the majestic Rogers Rock Mountain stands in the background. This trip was one for the record books!

2015 marked the 10th anniversary of this family’s very first Giddy Girlz celebration, and the first time ordering custom t-shirts! These women, representing three generations, gather together to bond over arts and crafts, storytelling, and laughter. They wear stunning crystal tiaras everywhere they go, don feather boas, and participate in activities from sightseeing and shopping to tea parties and slumber parties. This year, they decided to go whitewater rafting in Gatlinburg, TN! Beautiful, bright pink Giddy Girlz performance t-shirts were created to mark the occasion and to help them stand out on bright summer days. Needless to say, the Giddy Girlz shirts complemented the overall theme of this annual gala!

dptfanfav8.20

As you can see from the photo, students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Western University are one big happy family! On the first day of classes this year, these first-time customers greeted new students in style with shirts designed by one of their very own classmates.

adpearanceinkerfav8.20

The Adpearance Nerdherd hails from Portland, Oregon. They’re a close-knit crew of digital marketers, designers, developers, content writers, and account directors working for Adpearance, Inc. Marketing Agency. In just six years, this company has grown from a team of 5 to over 70, and in that time, the Nerdherd has dozens of fond memories and inside jokes. For their third order, the group illustrated their favorite things about the Adpearance Nerdherd culture and put it on a t-shirt. The Nerdherd now has a fun (and super comfy) way of showing their pride!
