Brandon’s Heart Walk” and “Camp Greenville 2016” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

Family and friends gathered together on a rainy day in Long Island, New York, to bring awareness to congenital heart diseases. The heart walk took place at Sunken Meadow park and beach. The customer’s son was born with a rare heart defect, called HLHS, and without the kindness of donors, “probably wouldn’t be here today.” We admire all of your dedication to the cause!

 

Many of the 5th graders from Berea Elementary in Greenville, South Carolina, have never been hiking or to the mountains. Throughout the school year, they fundraise for an end-of-year trip to the mountains. They raised such a great amount this year that they were all able to sport custom t-shirts on their trip together!

Father’s Day is right around the corner! In honor of dads, step dads, granddads & father-figures everywhere, we’re highlighting a few customers who shared their Father’s Day stories in our Ink of the Week contest.

 

fatherday_1Country Strong for Papa

As the granddaughter of the family, this customer had an idea to honor her late grandfather, aka “Pistol Pete,” last Father’s Day with custom camo t-shirts for the whole family. They gathered in their private cemetery in Mt. Herman, Louisiana, to “show that shirts can be used for anything… including a celebration of life.” Since last year’s gathering, she has already organized a Group Order Form and ordered new camo shirts for Father’s Day 2016.

This customer came to us for custom t-shirts for her and her family to wear on Father’s Day. On that special day, she asked her step dad to officially adopt her, hence the “Family is More Than Blood” slogan. On the back of all the shirts (not pictured) is the name “Lent,” which represents the last name of the family she was adopted into.

The patriarch of the Cristaldi family fancies himself the “Czar” of the family. He calls his wife the “WOC,” which means “Wife of Czar,” and then all of his daughters the minions in his kingdom. To commemorate Father’s Day, these sisters had shirts made sporting their kingdom garb. After passing them out to the family, they attended a brewfest in their home state of Maine.

Tyler and his classmates traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, during their spring break to build homes for families in need. With them, they brought their gold, foil ink t-shirts to wear while building. They had a few extras to spare, so they gave out shirts to some of the kids for whom they were building houses (look closely and you’ll see seven-year-old, Kevin, lounging among some of the teens).
