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.

 

turtleOff Like a Herd of Turtles

With their recent reorder, this group of family and friends honored Mike Kipila at a recent American Cancer Society event for prostate cancer called Run for Dad. When this customer lost her dad, Mike, in 2013, she made it her mission to find a cure for prostate cancer and help save the lives of others. Mike was an avid biker and road captain of his motorcycle club, and when he’d look back to his lineup of riders with their helmets on, he’d say “We’re off like a Herd of Turtles.” It’s from this that the team name was born.

Smile_2Bright Future for First Graders

With the end of 1st grade coming to a close, Alexis decided to surprise her class with custom tie-dye t-shirts. Throughout the year, there was a yellow sun with sunglasses that hung in the classroom to remind the class to work hard, be happy, and have fun, so it was only fitting that she get a smiley face sun with shades printed on the shirts with the phrase, “My future is so bright I have to wear shades!”

This charity customer’s 2011 New Year’s resolution was to become a runner. With the help of her first running coach, Chuck, she was able to achieve that goal her first year – running three 5ks. Also occurring that first year was some devastating news of Chuck’s pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Although he soon passed away, to this day she has Chuck to thank for getting her on her feet and helping achieve her goal. She now coaches others through the No Boundaries program and participates in pancreatic cancer run/walks in memory of her dear friend.

This customer’s brother lost his life on Mount Everest April 25th after the devastating earthquake in Nepal triggered an avalanche. To celebrate his wild sense of adventure, Tricia and her friends ran in an Insane Inflatable 5K, which consisted of a dozen huge inflatable obstacles throughout the course. His love for dinosaurs made the artwork an easy choice! These racerback tanks included T-Rex and their team name #LiveDan. It was our pleasure to print your heartfelt design to remember your brother!

IOTW Winner

These first time customers made memories in the mountains of Tennessee when they traveled to Gatlinburg for their family vacation! They looked great in their t-shirts and we know next year’s shirts will be even better!

IOTW Winner

The Rupp family recently celebrated their Dad/Grandpa’s 75th birthday in Minnesota! The theme of the celebration was “Rupp University” since they always joke about the education they received from their parents. Birthday activities included wearing their shirts around the Mall of America and at a Minnesota Twins game. Several people stopped to ask where the college was located!

This was their way of giving back to a country in desperate need of dental care.

These repeat festival goers ordered shirts again for their viola section to wear at an esteemed arts festival they attend in Arkansas every year. This year they were very creative with designing the back of the t-shirt, which says, “You scratch my Bratsche, I’ll scratch yours.” Bratsche means viola in German! Can’t wait to see what they design next year!
