“Volleyball Tournament” and “Dream…Believe…Dance!! What a team!!” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

This co-ed volleyball team practiced and trained for nearly a year to prepare themselves for a Labor Day tournament (hence the eat, sleep, and volleyball art on the design). Knowing they wanted matching jerseys for the big game, they turned to the artists at CustomInk to help bring their design idea to life. Win or lose, the team sure did have a memorable day in their custom shirts!

Repeat customer, Justine, returned this fall to order custom tanks and t-shirts for her dance studio. Pictured here are some of her dancers, moms, and teachers proudly wearing their new gear as they practice for Dance for the Cure, a performance dedicated to raising money for breast cancer research.

Halloween is right around the corner, so it’s time to plan the perfect party! We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite – and easy – Halloween party ideas sure to please the littlest monster to the biggest ghoul.

Monster-Doors-split-pic1. Monster Doors

Start prepping for your party by decorating outside. Guests will know they’re in the right place when they see these monster doors! All you need is some colored paper, paper plates, and tape to create the eyes and mouth. Add on streamers for hair or some spooky cobwebs for an extra touch.

magic potion2. “Magic Potion” Drinks

Instead of serving the typical party punch, try “magic potion” drinks. Just make and freeze various flavors of Kool Aid then add a cube of each color to a glass of clear soda when the party starts. The magic happens as the ice melts and the drink changes colors and flavors!

veggies3. Jack-O-Lantern Veggie Tray

Take your veggie tray up a notch! With some simple rearranging ordinary veggies are transformed into a jack-o-lantern. Use carrots to make the body, broccoli for the stem, and olives for the eyes and mouth. Fill in the background with cauliflower or another veggie of your choosing.

hand4. Popcorn Hands

Ran out of time to make party favors? Have your guests make their own. All you need is popcorn (popped), candy corn, plastic spider rings (optional), and disposable gloves for your guests to make their own popcorn hand. Guests fill the glove with popcorn and use the candy corn to make the fingernails.

HalloweenKeepCalmPartyOn_5. Custom Halloween T-shirts

Last but not least, it’s not too late to unite your guests in custom t-shirts! Order by 2 pm Tuesday, October 27th, to get your shirts in time for the holiday weekend. Get started by checking out our artist-designed Halloween templates!

Mary Caulfield formed the team “Psycho Sisters” in 2008 for a breast cancer walk. Last year, family and friends lost Mary, their fearless team captain, to a rare form of metastasized breast cancer. With the team bigger than ever before, Mary’s daughter knew it was time to honor and commemorate the leader of the “Psycho Sisters” with custom t-shirts. By “Marching for Mary,” the team is keeping her spirit alive as they strive to end breast cancer forever!
