Win Goruck Heavy 006 Masters T-Shirt Photo

"The Goruck Heavy is 24hrs+ of teamwork based on special forces training. This particular "class" was extra special in that all participants were over 40 (we let a couple of youngsters in at the last minute). It included 2 finishers in their 60s The photo here was taken after 24.5 hrs of constant movement. Everyone carried a ruck weighing upwards of 40lbs, we covered 45 miles on foot including 13hrs carrying am additional 60lb sandbag each. The event was emotional including visits to Arlington Nafional Cemetary, and the Vietnam War Memorial in DC Custom Ink rushed through an order of over 40 tees of outstanding quality. The front shows an ancient spearhead with the words "VETUS BELLATOR" or "Old Warrior". The back simply says "Growing Old is Mandatory. Growing Up is Optional" A variation of this design has also been sold to raise money for the Green Beret Foundation raising over $500"

LISTEN, LOVE, LIFE WITHOUT VIOLENCE by ADA MAC CHILDREN - 11 months ago

Win Listen, Love, Life Without Violence T-Shirt Photo

"This photo of the kids/teens was so amazing. It was taking on Sunday, April 14, 2013 at Shaun Michael studio in Chicago, IL. When it was time to do this photo shoot, the kids demanded to go 1st because we had so many adults that show up for this shoot to support the cause. Some of the kids said to post this group shoot all over so everyone can see how proudly they are to support the cause and the charity. They truly amaze us by saying they understand what the charity is about and what it stood for. ADA Mac children all had a story to tell. Some been a victim of bullying, some had a family member or a friend that were murdered. These teens and small kids told us they don't like the violence that is going on and they wish it would stop. Some have a dream to take over ADA Mac to make it even more stronger when the grow up. They all have a heart and passion for this charity. They want us to develop a program so they can have a place to go all year round to keep them off the street. Some even got involve with our events and sold candy when we did our fundraising last month. I truly love CustomInk because everyone treated us with love ans support. They did our t-shirt order correctly and sent it out in a timely manner. The packaging was great so the shirts didn't get messed up. We will continue to do business with CustomInk and look forward into doing a partnership with them. "

Win Couch Potato Ninjas In The Run To Home Base May 2013 T-Shirt Photo

"The Couch Potato Ninjas are a team of veterans, military families, and friends - we have participated in the Run to Home Base in Boston for three years in a row volunteering to raise money for the Home Base Program, which provides care for veterans living with combat stress disorders and TBI, and support services for their families. This is our 2013 team pre-event, near the tables just inside Gate B at Fenway Park. The run finishes inside Fenway Park. While this is our third year participating in the event, it is our second year working with CustomInk. And as our team has improved in numbers and funds raised, our shirts have also improved. We look forward to working with CustomInk again next year! "

"This is the picture of our pit orchestra before our second to last show of Beauty and the Beast. We were having a pizza party to celebrate how much we have accomplished. My experience working with Customink was wonderful. The shirts came out exactly how I wanted them to and everyone was happy. I'm sure we will all continue to wear them even after we seniors graduate. :)"

Leaping for Leslie by MS Fundraiser Leaping for Leslie Pre-K students - 12 months ago

Win Leaping For Leslie T-Shirt Photo

"The shirts were designed for our MS Walk team "Leslie's Leppards" to wear for the MS Walk in Chattanooga on April 27, 2013. We ordered extras to give the children who raised over $20.00 for MS by participating in the "Leaping for Leslie" Leap-a-thon. This was taken at my childcare center in Ringgold, GA. On April 17, 2013. The students raised $400.00. They leaped 100 times. The children loved the shirts and at the walk we received several complements on our shirts. We did not misspell "Leppards". Leslie, my best friend, has MS and her favorite band is Def Leppard. Our team moto is on the back of the shirts, which you can't see in the picture, is "Walking like an "Animal" to end MS "Hysteria" "Now" so we can all "Rocket". If you are not a Def Leppard fan the words in quotes are song by the band. We were so impressed by CustomInk when I received an email asking for information on where to send a donation for our team. The CustomInk team helped us each step of the way and were awesome. The communication was excellent. The quality of the work was perfect. The arrival was fast. I could not have asked for a better experience. THANKS CUSTOM INK!!!!!!"
