5th Grade” and “#LAINESTRONG” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

These fifth grade teachers proudly wear their “I Believe in… 5th Grade” t-shirts through the halls of a New York elementary school. They turned to Custom Ink to easily create a design and to select matching mens and ladies yellow tees for showing off their custom creation. They are a hit amongst students and staff!


Thanks to a gift from a good friend, Laine and her family now sport custom #teamlaine t-shirts in and out of the hospital. Laine, just nine months old, was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. These shirts keep the family unified and serve as a constant reminder to help Laine in her fight against cancer.

For Samantha” and “Doing my Big Day in the Best Way in Cute Tees from Custom Ink” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

This group walked in the Chicago Out of the Darkness Suicide Prevention Walk in honor of Samantha, a beloved family member and friend gone too soon. Nearly 100 custom t-shirts with the “For Samantha” team name were ordered and over half of those were worn during the walk. Just under $4,000 was raised by the team but beyond that accomplishment, friends and family now have beautiful shirts with Samantha’s artwork printed on the back to wear in her honor.


This bride and her bridesmaids couldn’t wait to get ready in their Custom Ink Comfort Colors tank tops the day of the wedding. Amidst the happy tears and champagne, the tanks were the icing on the cake. We are thrilled to know we were a part of this big day!

Girl Scouts Never Give Up!” and “Four Diamonds Conquer Walk/Run” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

Rylee, the fearless leader of this Girl Scout troop, is always lending a helping hand and encouraging her troop members to never give up on tasks and obstacles thrown their way. She is known for saying, “Girl Scouts Never Give Up,” and because of this, troop leaders decided to not only coin the phrase as the troop’s motto, but to put it on something that can be worn during camp outings. The group turned to Custom Ink to design bandanas for an upcoming camping trip and parents went online to order individual ones through the Group Order Form. The result: custom bandanas that made all the other troops jealous!


Team “Miles for Mckenna” recently participated in the Conquer Run benefiting the Four Diamonds Fund. Four Diamonds’ mission is to defeat childhood cancer by helping children and their families through support and innovative research. Miles for Mckenna were the stars of the walk as they rocked some bright and beautiful butterflies on the backs of their long-sleeved tees!

It’s no secret that a picture is worth a thousand words. If you want yours to stand out in Custom Ink’s Ink of the Week photo contest – not to mention, make your Instagram followers double-tap and your friends and family members super impressed – follow these photography do’s and don’ts.

  1. Back to backgrounds – Don’t settle for any ol’ backdrop. Show off a scenic view, a muddy trail of a race you completed, or any other fun location you visited. We love seeing Custom Ink designs out in the real world, and we want to see how you brought yours to life. Show us your t-shirts (or hoodies, or koozies, or hats) in action in the cool location that made it shine.
  2. Line it up – Use the rule of thirds. Just imagine a tic-tac-toe board over your screen and line everything up with the lines and intersections.

Valley Fever Awareness Walk 2017” and “Mexican MudSlide” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

Valley Fever Americas Foundation, a non-profit group that raises awareness and funds for Valley Fever, works to save lives through educating people on the disease so that victims can get diagnosed earlier. This photo is a record-breaking number of survivors in one place at one time. The sapphire t-shirts have been provided to survivors of the disease at the Valley Fever Awareness Walk for three years running, and they fit the tiniest toddler to the oldest adult.


Team Mexican Mudslide returned bigger and mightier to this year’s Muckfest Chicago, an event held to support those living with multiple sclerosis. Team spirit and laughs exuded from the group as they took spills in mounds of muds. They loved getting muddy in their custom t-shirts and are looking forward to doing it all over again in 2018.
