Custom Ink News & Events

1 Dude 2 Doodles

Brandon Zingale lives in Cleveland Ohio with his bernedoodle and sheepadoodle dogs Sneakers and Oscar and the three are known on social media for their adorable pet content. When Brandon became ready to launch a merch line, he decided to do so with a t-shirt fundraiser and donate a portion of the profits to The Pet Fund that works to provide veterinary care to those who are unable to pay for it themselves.

Brandon shared their story with us:

“Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, I’ve always had a knack for creating humorous content and wanted to turn that into something I can share with everyone. I’ve been growing my social platforms for almost 10 years now. I got my start on Vine and was able to grow my following before the app was no longer available. Since then, I have grown my Instagram following to over 500,000 on Instagram, and my TikTok following to almost 150,000 in just a few months. I enjoy creating sports, comedy and dog content with my two pups.”

“Custom Ink has helped me by creating amazing designs that I can share with my fans. They set everything up and it makes it super easy for anyone to purchase. It’s great that I can run a campaign for clothing sales, while also giving back to charity, which Custom Ink has been a great help on. Custom Ink has been a great way to express myself through the art of clothing.”

“Working with Alexis and the Custom Ink team, we were able to brainstorm some designs that symbolize my content and connect my audience. Once we came up with a few ideas, we were able to bring it to fruition.”

The result was two sets of shirts made just for Brandon and his followers. One design features a hand-drawn portrait of Sneakers and Oscar and the other boasts the phrase “The only thing I love more than my dog is nothing.”

Custom Ink makes it easy to get a great design and launch a fundraising campaign for anything you care about with custom design services, a vast selection of products, and a personalized campaign platform.
