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. We’re compiling a handful of stories to show you some of the communities we’ve recently touched.


joeandmeredithA Vegas Family Celebration

Family of multiple generations (2 grandparents, 7 children, and 16 grandchildren – and not pictured, 9 great grandchildren!) gathered in Las Vegas this year to celebrate Joe and Meredith’s 65th wedding anniversary & 85th birthdays. The patriarchs of this family have been vacationing in Las Vegas for decades, and have even seen Frank Sinatra and The Jackson 5 perform multiple times.



yakima_2Proud Yakimaniacs

These girls refer to themselves as “Yakimaniacs.” They hail from Yakima, Washington – an irrigated desert town that basis itself on agriculture, and also happens to grow 90% of the country’s hops. When they decided to plan a weekend of camping and half marathon running down the Colombia River, they turned to us to order custom tank tops to commemorate the trip.



terryTerrie and the Yogettes

Terrie started “The Yogettes” years ago after finding yoga as a way to improve her balance, strength, and coordination while dealing with Parkinson’s Disease. As her group grew, the women discovered that they all had personal struggles and the friendships between one another became stronger. To throw Terrie an extra special birthday this year, the group surprised her not only with a party, but with different colored t-shirts for all!



campCamp Grampagramma

Since 2009, the grandparents of the boys pictured here host Camp Grampagramma at the end of every summer in Michigan’s Ludington State Park. The kids go on a scavenger hunt each year, using a grid to point out different landmarks on their hike through the park. New to this year’s scavenger hunt were these standout, custom green t-shirts. Because they were such a hit, they will now “be ordering new camp shirts each summer!”



Rutgers Fights for the Cure!” and “Falling Into Tailgate Season With Sisters” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!


Rutgers University’s School of Nursing Community Outreach Committee recently organized a t-shirt sale for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In addition to the group’s t-shirt sale, which raised over $400 for breast cancer research, a group of 40+ nursing students attended the AVON Walk to End Breast Cancer and cheered on all participants of the event.


Sisters of Epsilon Kappa Tau ended their fall recruitment with the traditional cookout and football game. To celebrate their successful recruiment and the fall season, they ordered these custom football-themed tank tops. The tanks were such a hit, that the group is already planning their next order to support breast cancer awareness, the sorority’s philanthropy.

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!
