Create More Savings This Tax-Free Weekend


It’s that time of year again. As the summer comes to a close, parents and students prepare to go back to school, and across the country, states celebrate the season with tax-free holidays. That’s right, tax free time is almost here and there’s no better way to take advantage of the savings than by buying custom apparel and products for your groups and events.

What is a tax-free holiday? 

During periods of the year where people are buying lots of necessities, many state governments will offer a tax-free weekend in order to incentivise spending as well as encourage business investment. 

What is eligible? 

While this varies state to state, tax-free items in most states include articles of clothing and certain school essentials like pens, notebooks, and more. This means it’s the perfect time to stock up on not only cool custom apparel, but it’s also the perfect time of year to create awesome spirit wear and custom school supplies featuring your school’s mascot. It’s also a great time for groups and businesses to take advantage of the savings and create some great gear for their biggest upcoming events and get-togethers.

When is my tax-free weekend?

Custom Ink charges tax based on the state in which the order was placed. That means to take advantage of tax-free savings, you’ll need to order during your state’s specific tax-free weekend.

    We talked to our Sales experts and they were able to confirm that those orders would be tax exempt during the window, so order away!
