CustomInk News & Events

We know we have the best customers in the business, so to celebrate our 15th anniversary, we wanted to thank the people, organizations, and communities that have supported us throughout the years!

To follow our amazing trip with Lindsay Arnold to surprise the Waller High School Dance Team, we decided to surprise a customer with a very special cause just in time for Veteran’s Day. Long-time customer John Thompson is President of SUDS Diving, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of wounded, ill and injured service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan through rehabilitative scuba diving. We surprised John by sponsoring three veterans for a dive in November 2015 in Rincon, Puerto Rico.

You can learn more about the incredible work of SUDS and our trip with them here:



Tis the season to be crafty! We’ve assembled a collection of our favorite holiday DIYs and crafts to get your home, office, or party looking fresh and festive this winter.

1. Mason Jars, Mason Jars, Mason Jars!

Everyone’s favorite all-purpose storage and decoration solution is definitely not left out of the winter holiday festivities. A little bit of twine, some paint, water, and a candle can transform a plain mason jar into a beautiful, inexpensive, yet eye-catching table feature.

2. Crafty Tabletop Trees

Whether you don’t have room for a full-size tree or just can’t get enough of them, tabletop trees are a holiday classic. Put a crafty twist on your table top tree this year with a fun project such as this whimsical tree made of deconstructed plastic spoons!

3. Get Modern

The holidays are a time for tradition, but who says you can’t break the trend? With trees and ornaments available in all colors of the rainbow, anything goes when it comes to trimming your tree. Black, white, and gold is a popular color scheme this year. What do you think, funky and fun, or traditional all the way? Sound off in the comments below!

4. Have Fun!

It’s easy to get carried away with perfectly coordinated modern holiday decor, but decorating for the holidays doesn’t have to be all business! Have fun with your decorations and stand apart from the crowd by letting your inner child go wild – it’s the spirit of the season, after all. Dinosaur menorah, anyone?

5. Custom Holiday T-shirts

Last but not least, DIY a memory they’ll cherish forever by bringing your friends and family together for the holidays in custom t-shirts and apparel! Get started by checking out our artist-designed Christmas templates and Hanukkah templates!

Thanksgiving is almost here, so it’s time to start thinking about what to make for the big day! To get some inspiration, we asked Inkers to share their favorite Thanksgiving recipes. We got some awesome takes on the classics and even an idea for that leftover can of cranberry sauce. Try out one of these recipes for your Thanksgiving spread!

1. Jennifer J., one of our team environment coordinators, shares her Mom’s stuffing recipe. She takes classic stuffing and makes it her own with the addition of apples and almonds!

2. Outside of Customink, Chase D, one of our production artists, is a private and guest chef. He hosts pop-up restaurants, guest chefs at some of Reno’s finest, and is in the process of opening his first restaurant. Needless to say, he has a few rad recipes! Here’s one of his favorites that is a crowd pleaser! It makes sweet potato haters do a double take.

3. Mark R, one of our product managers, shares his favorite stuffing recipe. Rice and quinoa replace the usual bread to make this version naturally gluten free!

4. Erica H., also one of our team environment coordinators, prefers the nostalgia of canned cranberry sauce for her Thanksgiving feast. Since she usually has a can left after the event, she’s done some experimenting and found that you can make a great cran-peach topping for everything from pancakes to ice cream!

5. Erin S., a satisfaction assurance associate, adds spicy sausage to her stuffing for a little kick!
