Martha and her guest Kevin Nealon whipped up a special treat with lip shaped ice cream sandwiches, but the show got even sweeter when the staff came out in their bright pink t-shirts donning an image of…you guessed it…lips! We just *loved* how cute they looked in their custom staff shirts and were flattered they chose CustomInk to print them. (Blush).
So, if you’re flirting with the idea of making this V-day even more special – consider these yummy looking ice cream sandwiches or an adorable custom tee.
Every year, Pantone® (a company seen by creative professionals as the experts on color) chooses a hue to highlight as their “Color of the Year.” And this year, the lucky color is….Honeysuckle! That’s right – Honeysuckle is “in” for 2011 thanks to its gentle but exhilarating reddish-pink brilliance. According to Pantone®, it looks great on both men and women, and anyone who wears it will exude health and confidence. Well, in celebration of health and confidence (two traits we all should find VERY important), take a look at some of our pink t-shirts and celebrate the year of the Honeysuckle!!

January’s Artist Spotlight is on Elizabeth, one of our Procurement Captains. Basically, she gets the right t-shirts to the right printers as fast as possible. She has to juggle inventory, shipping, and manage the time it takes to get t-shirts to their destination. Let’s just say there are quite a few maps of the US & Canada papering the Procurement Team’s walls in the office. Read more –>
If you follow us on Facebook or have read Our Story, you may think we hang out in our t-shirts and flip-flops having fun all day. Well, that is mostly true… but like any office, we have meetings. It may be hard to believe, but our conference rooms didn’t have any clocks! Meetings would get off track, run late, or just carry on into infinity. So, to solve this problem, we decided it would be fun to make some clocks. Our resident handyman Jeff cut wood in the shape of t-shirts, of course, and people volunteered to decorate them. The only rule was to have marks indicating the hours; after that, Inkers could create anything they wanted! We got back so many different styles from people in all areas of the company, not just from the art departments. They are covered in fabric, paint, collage, text, paint chips, and even one made of stained glass. The handmade clocks are on display in our gallery this month so everyone can see them before they find a permanent home in a conference room. Check them out! Read more –>
Many of you like to create photo t-shirts using your personal photographs. Adding your photo to our Design Lab is easy… the tricky part is knowing whether the quality is good enough to print. Sometimes small photos can look OK in the Design Lab, but they won’t print well. Why? The Lab is scaled down for easy viewing on everyone’s monitor. So, you need to check the size you have made your image on the shirt in the Lab. Then see if your image is good enough to size up to those dimensions.
Still confused? Well, watch my short video and it will all become clear. And if you want to dive a little deeper into image quality and resolution, check out this video. Both videos will help make your ordering process smoother, plus it will get your shirts to the printer faster!
