Today, CustomInk is proud to announce the launch of a new platform, Booster, designed to help people raise money and rally support for their causes, loved ones, groups and projects through the online sale of custom t-shirts. We at CustomInk expect Booster to attract veteran fundraisers looking for better tools; and empower newcomers with an easy way to launch their first campaigns.
“At CustomInk, ‘T-shirts Unite!’ is our rallying cry,” said CustomInk’s co-founder & president, Marc Katz. “We know that uniting around a common purpose is important to our customers, and it’s important to us too. We’re extremely excited to introduce this new platform and can already see that a Booster campaign is so much more than a fundraiser. T-shirts raise awareness, boost spirits and create a lasting connection like nothing else. This is all deeply part of our company character,so it’s really a privilege to help people come together and make a positive difference with Booster.”
Booster is simple, fast and free. Campaign organizers design a t-shirt using the design lab, set a selling price and sales goal and then spread the word about their campaign using Booster’s simple tools and social media integration. Our t-shirt pros handle the rest – proofing artwork, creating high-quality shirts and delivering them to supporters. After the campaign has concluded, Booster sends payment to the organizer or his/her designated cause for the full amount of funds raised.
It’s no secret that CustomInk loves t-shirts. Especially custom t-shirts. We’ve always talked casually about the most iconic or most popular t-shirts of all time, but in light of the 100th birthday of the t-shirt, we decided to put our money where our mouths are and put it to a company vote. The result is a phantasmagorical stroll down memory lane through popular movies, rock ‘n’ roll, TV land, comics, college athletics, cultural movements, social statements, funky fads and so much more. We hope you enjoy and share with friends. Read more –>
Since 1913 the t-shirt, which first appeared as standard-issue gear within the U.S. Navy, has become an essential part of the American wardrobe and identity. To commemorate the occasion, CustomInk has announced a national celebration of the t-shirt’s 100th birthday. The campaign includes surveys and conversations with Americans about their beloved tees, a webpage dedicated to the t-shirt’s 100th birthday, a gallery of the most iconic t shirts of all-time, and launching this summer, an augmented reali-TEE app.
CustomInk recently got involved with a movement called #PuntersArePeopleToo started by the NFL Network’s Rich Eisen. If you haven’t already heard of it, the quote was started after Bryan Anger (a punter from UC Berkeley) was chosen in the 3rd round of the NFL Draft this year – Go Bryan! See this awesome video below for the backstory:
Rich Eisen interviewed Anger on his podcast a few months back, and made “Punters Are People Too” t-shirts promoting “the cause.” And it seems to have buily up a lot of steam, because when punter Sam Koch of the Baltimore Ravens scored a TD on a fake field goal, the entire Baltimore Ravens team got shirts through us to support their teammate … Proving further proof that punters should get more respect.
