Mud – it’s wet, dirty, sludgy, and sometimes even a little stinky.

We cringe when it’s tracked into our homes and we beeline for the washer as soon as it gets on our clothes.

While jumping in puddles is irresistible as a kid, the older we get, the more and more we seem to side-step.

But perhaps we have it all wrong. Maybe mud isn’t so bad…except where it’s a “season” that goes on for far too long.

So this spring we’re trying something new; We’re lacing up our shoes and enlisting the company of a running crew.

It’s only day two, but thanks to a little help from Toto, the sky isn’t looking so blue.

We’re finally in the swing of things; We’ve perfected our gait and we’ve even chosen a mud run team name – “Law and Odor,” now tell us that isn’t great!

So before you sigh, saying “oh gross, I got mud on my shoes,” grab your brother, your sister, your girlfriend, heck, even your mother, and tell them the news.

You’ve signed everyone up for a mud run, and you’ve even designed muddy team tees to add to the fun!



We noticed that many of our customers were participating in CANstruction events, so we had to get in on the charitable fun! Last week, as part of our Three Hearts initiative, 34 Inker volunteers from our Reno location took part in a local CANstruction event. CustomInk’s structure used 2,670 items of cans and non-perishable food that will be donated to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada when the event is over. We also won the Best Structural Ingenuity Award! Check out the full news story here!

Ink of the Week Winner

“This is at our most recent Beta Club meeting. Our goal is to show leadership by service in the community. We partake in volunteer events to help citizens, buildings, and even animals (at the shelter). We wanted shirts to wear that represented us during our work projects, and CustomInk has surely set a great impression. You guys really set a bar for other printwear companies. Best service and product any of us have seen from a printwear company! Great job!”

Ink of the Week Winner

“Pictured are our youth group boys from the Korean Church of Dallas. They were pumped and ready to play football in 40 degree weather. While spectators huddled in thick blankets on the sidelines, this team was out on the field for ten hours straight to learn what it meant to suffer and win as a team. These players were victorious in every way and walked away with cold hands but warm hearts. Thanks, CustomInk, for making us look good on the field and uniting us in our white&blue that day!”
