Today is World Autism Day

Today is World Autism Day and April is Autism Awareness Month.

Today, through the rest of the month, efforts will be made by organizations and parents to increase awareness of Autism.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects brain development, impacting social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and motor coordination. Autism affects 1 in every 88 children in the United States. ASD is thought to be the fastest growing developmental disability in the U.S.

With so many organizations holding events this month to raise awareness, we’re happy to be a reliable source for their custom apparel needs. We have a line of designs dedicated to Charity Events, one of which is Autism. Our custom Autism tees and hoodies are ideal for charity walks or runs. With so many customizable features, you can create a tee for your event that is personal to you and your awareness goals.

Customized Running Gear

These days it seems everyone is running. Running 5k’s, half marathons, whole marathons, color runs, charity runs, and everything in between. Customized Girl is always receiving orders for these events and we’re happy to fill them! We even featured a customer who created custom running shirts for her marathon team as March’s Label Rebel last week!

But what else does a runner need besides a custom running shirt?

Custom Running Gear Infographic 2

Custom Shorts. Pair your new shirt with customized running shorts. Custom shorts are a fun way to bring color to your gear and attention to the cause you’re running for. They make for a great momento of the day and all the hard work you put in training for it.

How about some socks? It’s an obvious no-no to run in your sneaks without socks for health and hygiene reasons. Customize our popular American Apparel Striped Knee-High Socks to add some more flare and personalization to your race day gear.

Block the inevitable sweat and sun from your eyes with customized running hats. It’s difficult to run with sunglasses and your sunblock will probably sweat off. Solve the problem with a customized hat for the day.

What about my water bottle, car keys, wallet, and snacks?! Fear not. We also offer customized sport bags so you can easily tote all of your gear.

Whatever race you’re running, whether it be your fifth marathon or your first 5k, Customized Girl has all of the gear you need. We offer you the chance to customize your fitness apparel to keep you inspired and moving at your own customized pace.

Label Rebel: Marathon Runners Designing Custom Running Shirts

Our Label Rebels are always on the go with their custom designs. We’ve featured Label Rebels designing their own shirts for bachelorette parties, raves, an up-and-coming fashion label, mud runners, bowling parties and more. It only makes sense to feature marathon runners! Lately it seems marathon running is happening everywhere you turn. Color runs, zombie runs, holiday runs, runs that reward you with beer. The more and more these fun fitness challenges pop up, so do custom running shirts!

This month’s Label Rebel, Crystal Pack, her husband, and her friends ran San Antonio’s Rock N Roll Marathon last year in tanks and tees they designed with Customized Girl!

QuoteMarks“My husband and I ran the 2013 San Antonio Rock N’ Roll Marathon and a Half together this year. The guys ran the full marathon and the girls ran the half. We wanted to do themed running shirts that related to rock n’ roll so we came up with “Sole Sisters” for the girls who were doing the half. The numbers on the back are the number of half marathons we had done including the one we were running that day… The run was very hot, but the bamboo fabric of the shirts worked great. We were very pleased with the order!”Women's Performance Wear

“The three guys in the photo below ran the 2013 San Antonio Rock N’ Roll marathon together. Two of the guys brew their own beer and wanted to be called the brews brothers. The third guy who is named “Guy” does not brew beer, so we decided to do” The Brews Brothers” (in the spirit of rock n’ roll and brewing beer) and put “And Guy” on the back. We of course reversed it for Guy’s shirt. Here is a photo of the guys! All three loved the shirt and had no problems running 26.2 miles in it on a very hot Texas day.

Label Rebels – Bowling Party Shirts

500-Bowling-Party-zoom

Our Label Rebels always surprise and delight us with something new! And that’s just what Paula did with these custom birthday party shirts she created for her daughter’s 14th birthday party.

500-Bowling-Party-2

We loved what Paula created for both the front and the back of the shirt. On the back, you’ll notice she included the guest’s name, which is a great personalization idea for parties! Paula used the Name & Number feature in our design center to add each guest’s name to the back of the tank top (and the birthday number: 14). This gives the whole tank top design a sporty look, reminiscent of a team jersey. More bowling teams should absolutely adopt the name and number style of jersey. The pictures Paula sent us certainly tell the story about how great the party was and now each guest has a keepsake to remember the good time they had. We reached out to Paula and asked her to share the story behind her design!

We absolutely loved the shirts we designed. My 14-year-old daughter had a bowling party and the shirts were a huge hit with all the girls. They still wear them even though the party’s long over. It was an extra special touch and we got some great picture memories. It was easy to design… and the turnaround time fast. Thank you!

Label Rebels – You Can’t Rave With Us

Label Rebel – Nat designed these custom shirts for herself and her group of friends who attended the EDC rave party. The EDC rave party, also known as Electric Daisy Carnival, is a Friday and Saturday celebration that usually takes place during the month of November.

We loved Nat’s “you can’t rave with us” design. We get excited when we see customers use the Customized Girl Design Center to create a cool design and then put it on multiple styles. In Nat’s case, she ordered a variety of trendy tank tops and unisex t-shirts in several different colors. In fact, we loved her design so much that we emailed her and asked if she would be willing to share her story and maybe even some pictures. Unfortunately, her story takes a tragic turn, so we’ll just copy and paste her exact quote below.

We were very happy with our order, thank you. We actually made these shirts to attend EDC in Orlando. Unfortunately, our friend passed away that weekend while we were up there. These shirts definitely serve as a memory. If you do post the group picture, would you be able to include the hashtag #smileforoscar? That’s what we’ve been using to keep his name alive. Sincerely, Nat

Nat, we are so sorry for your loss. #smileforoscar

Label Rebels – Muddy Mama’s

There are so many great designs that our customers create using the design center on Customized Girl! We recently reached out to Karri and asked her to share her story behind the Muddy Mama’s design she created. Here is Kerri’s story behind the design and some great pictures she sent!

“I was very happy with the Mud Run shirts I ordered back in April. They were well made and the design looked great! The sizes fit well also. Three friends and I participated in the Palmetto Mud Endeavor on May 18, in Anderson,SC. It was an awesome 5K run with about 20 obstacles. The pink shirts took a beating, but made our team stand out and helped us stay together in the crowded parts of the course. I would definitely recommend you guys to anyone looking to customize shirts for any occasion!”

Hot Mess Express Bachelorette Shirts - Bride and Bridesmaid Olivia

Label Rebel Olivia designed these awesome hot mess express shirts for her friend’s bachelorette party! They were a hit!

Here is the story behind Olivia’s “hot mess express” design!

“All of the girls LOVED the ‘hot mess express’ shirts for my friend’s bachelorette in Boston, including the conductor herself! We got tons of compliments and comments everywhere we went and the best part was that ‘hot mess express’ kind of became the theme for the rest of the wedding festivities! We also wore the shirts while getting ready on the wedding day and just could not stop with the ‘choo-choos!’”

“I have been going through Customized Girl for almost five years; ordered gear for my sisters’ weddings and a few of my friends’ weddings including bachelorette shirts, gear for the bride as a shower gift, and even funny personalized honeymoon shirts for the bride and groom. I think it’s such a different and thoughtful gesture for the Maid of Honor to design t-shirts for the bridal party because she essentially sets the whole tone for the party. And, if others are anything like me, I am ALWAYS last minute with this stuff. But my procrastination as never been an issue because most of the time I have ordered custom gear, it has literally been a week or two before the event and I don’t even have to pay for rush shipping because I almost always get the gear in a few days!”

CG Group Shots: Brownies Troop Camporee 2011 Custom T-Shirts!

 

 

 

 

 

 

For kids everywhere, summer is all about fun outdoor activities and camps! Cheerleading, theater, art, softball, volleyball and band are just a few examples of camps and workshops kids attend during the dog days of summer!

One of our own customers sent us photos from her girl scout troop’s “Camporee 2011″ and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! Corissa customized 12 Youth Short Sleeve Layered Tees in Berry/Pink with “Old Vail Girl Scout Camporee 2011″ with bonfire art on the front, and “Brownies Troop #9919″ plus all the girl’s names on the back!

For herself and her helpers, Corissa customized three Misses Relaxed Fit Basic Tees in Light Pink with the same text as the girl’s on the front and back.

This Brownie Troop is from Southern Arizona, and their camporee took place at a local girl scout mountain camp.  There were about 200 girls on the mountain that weekend, so the bright, identical shirts made it easy for Corissa and the other supervising adults to keep track of their girls! Corissa said, “[The shirts] were also great for promoting camaraderie among the girls – and they all still love to wear the shirts now!”

If you would like to make your own custom t-shirts for your next camp, check out CustomizedGirl.com‘s selection of camp tees! We have a design center that’s super easy-to-use, and all kinds of art, texts and effects that will make your next personalized shirt one-of-a-kind!
