CG Group Shots: Everybody Loves Olive!

These very special group shots were sent to us by Dana, whose daughter Olive was born with a congenital heart defect (CHD) of May 2009 and since then has had two open heart surgeries to repair the defect.  Olive’s family created these designs for a walk to raise money for It’s My Heart (www.itsmyheart.org), to spread awareness for CHDs, and of course to show support for Olive and the other 40,000 babies born each year with CHDs.

Dana also included some enlightening facts about Congenital Heart Defects, that we wanted to share with our readers in spirit of spreading awareness for CHDs.

About 1 out of every 100 babies are born each year with some type of Congenital Heart Defect (40,000/year) (Source: Children’s Heart Foundation). Nearly twice as many children die from Congenital Heart Defects in the United States each year as from all forms of childhood  cancers combined, yet funding for pediatric cancer research is five times higher than funding for CHD (Source: Children’s Heart Foundation). Congenital Heart Defects are the #1 birth defect (Source: March of Dimes). Congenital Heart Defects are the #1 cause of birth defect related deaths. (Source: March of Dimes)

Thank you for sharing your story with us Dana and Olive! We wish you nothing but the best!

CG Group Shots: The Bombshell Cartel!

These roller girls not only play hard, they like to look great while doing it! When it came time for the Cedar Rapids Rollergirls’ Bombshell Cartel team to suit up to take on a rival, team captain Alisin Wonderbra decided to head on over to Customized Girl’s site to create a team shirt for the big day! The CG design was a big hit with all the girls on the team who decided to take the ‘sexy’ design to a new level. Each girl further customized their shirts and made them their one-of-a-kind design!

CG Group Shots: Tantini Tanning Bar!

Our next CG group order shout-out goes to Sonya Bright, owner of Tantini Tanning Bar in Glassboro, NJ! Tantini has more of a “lounge” atmosphere, mixing Sonya’s love of martinis and sunshine to create a unique tanning salon atmosphere for her clients that is surely “intoxicating”.

For her customized design, Sonya created these adorable white tees and tanks by uploading her own business logos for  the front and  back.  How cool! The staff looks great, thanks for sending those in Sonya!

CG Group Shots: Badass Bridal!

Kelly Crawford fell in love with the “Badass” bridal party designs that she found on our site, and decided to make a set for her own bridal party as a surprise gift! Kelly’s sister, sister-in-law, and of course maid of honor all received Junior Fit tanks in Berry.  Throughout the night, the ladies received compliments on their matching attire, and more importantly, the bridesmaids loved them! Badass indeed ladies!

CG Group Shots: Wood Family Annual Celebration!

This group photo was sent in to us by Daniel and Whitney! Like most families, the Wood’s try to get their family together at least once a year.  And like most families, it is really hard to find a date that works for everyone during the Christmas season, so they decided to get together in July for about five days.  Their families are spread out from Missouri to Washington D.C., so this is their way of keeping in touch and having a great time together!

Whitney and Daniel created these designs so that they would have  something to remember this year’s family reunion, and have their photo taken in them.  Whitney said, “It will be fun to pull the shirts back out years from now and keep up with the memories!” We agree! This is such a cool idea, and the picture turned out great! Thanks Whitney and Daniel!

CG Group Shots: “We Get Awesome”!

This fun group design was sent in to us by our fan Jen. Jen decided to create these tees for her rather large extended family comprised of three different family names! The Laubensteins, the Whitts and the Hennesseys.  For the week of the 4th of July, the whole clan rented a house in Scituate, Ma where they all attended a huge bonfire and fireworks display.  Pyrotechnics, food, family, and beer; Can you get any more American than that??

The designs say, “We don’t get drunk, we get awesome!”. We absolutely loved these, and think they were perfect for a big family party.  And as Jen said, “It was a great way of creating something we can keep forever!” We agree, and hopefully Jen and her crew had an “Awesome” 4th of July weekend!

CG Group Shots: River Rafting Extravaganza!

This group shot was sent in by one of our lovely fans named Sara.  Sara created these tees for her mom’s 60th birthday river rafting extravaganza.  The caption reads, “You wouldn’t believe it, but I’m 60!” because her mom looks so young for her age (agreed!).  Sara and the rest of her family presented the tees to her mom on the second day of the trip, on her birthday, and she loved them! In fact, they had such a good time, they are going to make the river rafting trip an annual event! Kudos to Sara for making such an awesome design, and kudos to her mom for river rafting on the big 6-0!!

CG Group Shots: Camping Trip 2010!

Lately we’ve been asking our customers who ordered group designs to send us their pictures so that we can show them off a little…okay, maybe more than a little! It’s been absolutely amazing to see how creative and artistic our fans are, and I can’t wait to share their design photos with you! Who knows, maybe some of them will inspire your next group design! Enjoy:)

This group photo was sent to us by Mika.  Mika’s husband and his friends have taken a camping trip together every summer since they graduated from high school.  To commemorate the 10th (or 11th) summer of their camping trip, Mika designed these awesome “Camping Trip 2010” tees, and the guys loved them! What a good wifey! We can’t wait to see the tees she designs for them next year!

If you would like your group to be featured on our blog, simply post your picture to our Facebook page, or send us an email with your photos attached.
