Family Reunion Contest

Around this time every year, we notice a lot more requests for family reunion t-shirts. We love helping make these traditional get-togethers extra special with custom tees for each family member, but this year, we’re taking it up a notch! We’re giving away the Ultimate Family Reunion Prize Pack to the winner of our Win Your Family Over Family Reunion Contest!

Curious about this spike in family reunion t-shirts, we wanted to learn a little bit more. So, we commissioned a survey of 1,000 Americans to ask all kinds of family reunion-related questions and discovered a few fun facts:

  • Meat – whether hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, or steak – is a must-have dish at reunions
  • About 66% of Americans say warm-weather locations, including beaches, tropical resorts or cruise ships, are the favorite “fantasy destination” locations to hold a family reunion
  • Oprah is the celebrity Americans think would most fit in at their next family reunion while Charlie Sheen ranks second, and President Barak Obama tied for third place with Justin Bieber
  • Most Americans said the t-shirt slogan best describing their family is, “Families are like Brownies – Mostly Sweet with a Few Nuts”

We were so surprised and delighted with the results, and they inspired us to help one lucky winner make their family reunion extra special with prizes and gifts to share with their whole family. Doesn’t it make you want to start planning yours now??

What Is the Ultimate Family Reunion Prize Pack?

Glad you asked. You could win:

  • $1,000 in custom apparel from us,
  • $1,000 in American Express gift cards (for the food and flair), and
  • A professional photographer with 5 professional prints (a $1,000 value)!

Hello! Well, My family consists of 11 aunts and uncles with a grandmother who is still alive with 38 wonderful grandchildren. Every July 4 we go to Ocean City, Maryland for a week since the 70’s where my grandfather owned a condo back then and is still in the family today! It is sort of a family landmark on 126 street that everyone meets when we do anything… beach, watch the fireworks, or if we go out at night. Every July 4 we have a basketball game called “Old Generation vs. New generation”, which is basically the uncles and older cousins vs the middle and younger ones and the whole family comes to watch around 100 people and grandma presents the trophy to the winner at then end then its off to the green turtle. Local news papers have done stories on us and its truly remarkable the bond our family has. We never miss a year! I think that my family would be a good candidate for this prize and if you choose us i promise that every year we will go through custom ink for our clothing needs. Also my cousin broke his neck last year and we are starting a foundation “Walking With Anthony”, which we have already ordered our first set of shirts through CustomInk and our very pleased with the outcome and the generosity of CustomInk in their giving of $50 to our charity. Look forward to hearing from you.
