What we love most at Customized Girl is being able to create designs for groups of women to support the things they love; it’s what we’re all about! Over the years, one of our most popular groups that we have had the privilege of creating designs for has been our Marine moms, wives, and girlfriends.
Unfortunately, all of the Marine designs you have enjoyed customizing to support the Marine you love have been removed from our website. The worst part of this situation was that it wasn’t our decision and it was very upsetting for us to remove our Marine category. The Marines legal department issued us a letter demanding we remove EVERYTHING Marine related on the website. We don’t even have permission to use the word Marine on our website and we probably shouldn’t be using it in this blog post either, but we had to share our frustrations with you.
We’re investigating a licensing situation, but it looks like it will take some time. In the meantime, we’ve changed that category to “Military Love“. Here you can find subcategories for Military Wife, Military Girlfriend, and Military Mom.
We’d love to hear from all the Marine wives, Marine girlfriends, and Marine moms out there! If you would like to see Marine designs back on Customized Girl, join us in the fight to get our Marine category back! Please email us at CustomizedGirl@eretailing.com with your story of why you love customizing Marine shirts to support your loved one! We want to produce Marine designs for you again so we’re collecting as many stories as possible to show the Marines that our designs do way more good than harm to their brand!

We know that one of the reasons why you choose to get your custom shirts from Customized Girl again and again is because of the great print quality we can deliver! While we agree our printing process is pretty darn good, in the printing business, there is always room for improvement. We are constantly tweaking and adding new features to make our prints better than our competitors!
We already have a big advantage because we do direct-to-garment printing on almost all of products, instead of screen-printing. Direct-to-garment printing allows us to offer a full range of colors offered at no extra charge, and no minimums or setup fees. With direct-to-garment printing, we can speed up the printing process while still producing great quality prints and in return, we can pass the savings on to you.
In addition, we have also added new state-of-the-art dryers. When newly printed shirts dry quicker, you get a better print and it lasts much longer. So not only do you have a wider variety of selections to choose from, you also receive a higher quality product to wear over and over again!
Since we have improved our printing process so much in the past couple of months and have a surplus of basic tee inventory, we want to give you the chance to experience our high quality printing and get a great deal at the same time!
For one day only, until 12:00PM EST on 8/14/2013, we are offering our basic tees for only $9.97! Shop Basic Tees

We are big fans of our mustache designs available on Customized Girl and we know you are too! A while back we were contacted by a representative from the 2nd Annual Mid-Atlantic Beard & ‘Stache Championships in Richmond, Virginia. They were holding a raffle to raise money for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the greater Richmond and tri-cities area and they asked if we could contribute. We were happy to send them a modest gift card, and they used it to create and purchase all of the incredibly awesome mustache-themed items pictured below. By the end of the raffle, they had raised over $5,400 for Big Brothers Big Sisters! All of these items are now available to purchase at Customized Girl: Multi-Mustache Flowy Tank, Vintage Woman Mustache T-Shirt, Classic Imperial Mustache Undies and Mustache Skull Tote Bag.
You can also see these designs on the RVA Beard League Facebook page!
While we have a great selection of mustache shirts and accessories available on Customized Girl, you can also check out more beard and mustache shirts on our sister site FunnyShirts.org.

Chris Feil is a friend of ours here at Customized Girl. He is a Chicago Police Officer that most recently worked in the special gang unit for the City of Chicago. He has been a police officer for almost 10 years. He has made a great name for himself within the police force, his unit and his community. A little over 2 years ago he was in a serious car accident while in pursuit of a suspect. The accident left him with tremendous pain and permanent damage to his back. He has recently had to undergo his third major back surgery. On a daily basis he deals with a tremendous amount of pain, the loss of mobility and constant numbness in his legs and feet. Most of these symptoms will never go away, but the hope is the pain will subside. The recovery process will be very slow and will take up to a year to possibly see any real long term results.
On Saturday, May 11th, 2013 a benefit will be held at 115 Bourbon Street in Chicago to help raise money for Chris, his wife, and their four girls. Any money raised will go towards helping Chris and Sam with day to day living cost. If you are in Chicago, or if you’re not, and you’re just interested in doing what you can to help a police officer who needs it, consider attending the benefit or donating in any way you can.
It was the least we could do to donate a few shirts for the cause. They will be available to purchase at the benefit. More details on Chris’s Facebook Page and on the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation’s website.

Looking for an ugly Christmas sweater? We have lots of cool options! However, these aren’t your grandma’s Christmas sweaters. Our “sweaters” are actually designs that create a cool printed illusion of stitches on whatever type of shirt you want instead of the typical itchy stitched designs of yesteryear. So, you can put your design on a t-shirt, sweatshirt, hoodie or even a tank top if you’d like! Plus, we have some really cool designs. In addition to the the standard snowflake, reindeer and Christmas tree sweaters, we have mustache, cat, zombie and video game themed designs! How cool is that?

During the month of October, we offered a promotional code in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month with 10% of the proceeds to go to breast cancer research. We are pleased to announce that we raised $7,405.39! This money has been donated to The Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research, which is devoted to advancing research in breast cancer.
We would like to thank all of our customers for making this possible. Nearly 1,300 of you used the code to support this great cause. Many of those orders were for breast cancer shirts, personalized with a name of a loved one. Thanks to you, we’re helping the fight against breast cancer.
Our CEO, Taj Schaffnit, presents the check to Katie Brennan of The Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
