Running on empty....but not for long! by Sandra Balzo - 11 months ago
"I'm a mystery author (far right side, no make-up, please don't judge....) and also a runner, tennis player and coffee addict. I wanted to design a shirt that tied into both of my mystery series, but was also comfortable for working out in. "Running on Empty" is the title of the first book in my Main Street Mysteries and "Uncommon Grounds" is the first in the now 8-book Maggy Thorsen series, set in a gourmet coffeehouse. Since I run first thing in the morning, putting "Running on Empty" and the road design (which I pulled right off Custom Ink's website) on the front of the shirt and "Uncommon Grounds," with the road ultimately leading to a cup of coffee, seemed just the thing! Designing on the website was a snap and Custom Ink's Corinne Thompson was not only efficient, she was personable and fun to work with. She straightened up the image, made sure it was the right size and sent me a proof. I placed the order on Wednesday, March 6, had the proof on Thursday, March 7, and the shirts were shipped on Monday, March 11. I absolutely love them, as does my tennis team at Lauderdale Tennis Club in Fort Lauderdale, FL. They honored me by wearing them for our match on March 29 and here we are. "
