Amy Poehler Wine Country

Make Custom 50th Birthday Shirts, Like Amy Poehler & Maya Rudolph Wear in Wine Country

Got a big birthday coming up or know someone with a birthday coming up? Celebrate like Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph do in their new Netflix original movie: Wine Country. If you haven’t seen it yet, we’ll give you a little rundown. Six ladies come together to celebrate a friend’s 50th birthday in Northern California AKA Wine Country. A lot of wine is consumed, and a lot of futures are questioned. Exactly the way a 50th birthday should be done.

As you know, we love custom t-shirts and we couldn’t help but notice that their group of friends wore a pretty awesome set. These shirts were a striking purple color with big, bold, yellow text that read “The big 5-OH!” If attention is what you’re going for, this look is for you. 50 is a big milestone, you should definitely flaunt it. Feeling inspired? We created a few similar to the one Amy Poehler is wearing.

Thinking this shirt would be *perfect* if you could add your own custom element to it? We’ve got you covered. Anything on our site is customizable – just choose a design and then click “Customize This Design”. You’ll be able to add even more text and choose from a huge selection of art. If you’ve got a big group coming out, names and numbers on the backs of the shirts might be a special touch. Add a custom date to the t-shirt and make it one for the books. The possibilities are endless.

If you’re not digging the whole “bold yellow text on deep purple shirts” aesthetic, check out our other 50th Birthday T-Shirt Design Templates here. We have some cleaner styles too, more blacks and greys and metallic golds.

(You can even upload the birthday girl’s face and we’ll cut out the background and print it on a bunch of shirts for you!)

Or if you’d rather just start from scratch, you can see all of our Custom T-Shirt options here.

Remember: anything you see, you can tweak to your liking. See a funny design on a tank top, but really wish it was on a t-shirt? Just use the swap tab in our design center to make it happen. You only turn 50 once, OWN IT!

Custom Knee High Socks

How We Print Our Custom Socks

Here’s the number one thing you need to know:

We print on the outside of BOTH socks.

In the design center, you’re creating one design. It looks like one design. But you are getting TWO prints.

One pair of socks. Two prints. It’s good.

Okay, let me back up: yes, we sell Custom Socks.

Knee high socks with a variety of stripe color options.

Rainbow socks with a full rainbow of stripes at the knee.

Crew socks for men, women, and kids.

And even no-show socks that we print on the bottom! These socks are perfect for putting your feet up on a stool and telling the world something like…

If you can read this, don’t bother me I am watching Hallmark Channel movies.

(Just as an example and also something I feel on a weekly basis deep in my bones.)

The point is, you can say, literally, whatever you want. Add text. Add art from our library. Even upload an image.

However, we recommend big, bold designs that are easy to read. Use the Add Text tab and choose one of our nice, big fonts.

Socks are ribbed and kinda stretchy. They are super great for spreading your message but not super great for showing off intricate detail in your artwork.

Keep that in mind, and you’re sure to create something unique and unforgettable.

Our Golden Girls Sweatshirt Was the First Clue That Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Were Dating Back in 2016 (!!!)

We’re coming up on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s one year anniversary and we thought this would be the perfect time to share a funny story with you all.

Like most things nowadays, it all began with a hidden romance and a cozy sweatshirt…

We were doing some year over year analysis of our sales on Amazon and we noticed there was a huge spike in sales for our favorite Golden Girls sweatshirt. That got us thinking…what did we miss? We were curious about whether or not there was something behind this, so we put our millennial skills to the test and did what we do best: internet stalking. We dug around and ended up finding something pretty awesome.

Last year in April, a BuzzFeed News article was published about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Even better, the article talks about how Prince Harry was spotted on Meghan Markle’s Instagram wearing a sweatshirt that said “Dorothy in the streets. Blanche in the sheets”. Yes, that’s ours!

Although Harry’s face isn’t fully revealed in the photo, our fellow investigators got to the bottom of it, and it was confirmed: the man in the photo was in fact Prince Harry. Their relationship was new and they were trying to keep it on the DL, which is not surprising. Basically, we just think it’s hilarious that our Golden Girl’s sweatshirt was actually the very first clue about a possible romance between the two all the way back in 2016.

This awesome sighting of Prince Harry in our Golden Girls sweatshirt confirms two things:

1. Golden Girls apparel is truly timeless (check out some of our other Golden Girls designs).

2. Even royalty wear sweatshirts.

From Custom Shorts to Mythical Backsides to Supporting a Cause

For those of you that don’t know, Customized Girl offers more than just awesome custom shirts. We also have custom shorts AND a really great storefront platform that allows anyone and everyone to create and sell their unique designs through their very own store hosted by Customized Girl.

Some of our store owners are really killing it. We wanted to call out one of those people in particular, Carly Leeson. Carly owns the store Mythical Backsides. Here, she sells shorts that have fun mythical creature names written across the back. How did she come up this idea? And why is her store one of a kind? Keep reading to find out.|

We reached out to Leeson to get some insight on how her store came about. She told us that “The store started with a silly text post on Tumblr by user typhlosionns: Booty shorts that say goblin on the butt.”

This sparked an idea. “I thought this was hilarious and decided to create a few designs for different mythical creatures. Enough people were interested in buying them that I decided to make this store.” Leeson explained. She saw an awesome opportunity to create something unique and went for it.

Although Customized Girl offers royalties to their store owners for every design sold, Leeson’s end goal was not to earn money for herself. She had something much bigger in mind. Carly shared with us that “Depression and suicide and addiction are quiet, sometimes invisible killers – in the past 5 years I have lost both of my parents and several friends to depression and suicide.” Because this topic is one that is so close to her, she decided that anything earned through her Mythical Backsides Store would be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Carly chose to donate her earnings to AFSP because it does a great job at promoting and providing education centered around mental health issues and is actively trying to change the negative stigma around this topic.

We were also curious as to why Carly chose to use Customized Girl to launch her creative Mythical Backsides store. She said: “I chose Customized Girl because of the user friendly interface that has a ton of options for tweaking designs to make your garment perfect. The quality of printing and the options available really are top notch compared to other custom sites.”

This is something we pride ourselves in. We love being able to offer our customers tons of different products to design on while making it as easy as possible. We’ve also really started ramping up our selection of Plus Size Apparel, which happens to be another one of the reasons Carly chose Customized Girl for her storefront: “I am a plus sized girl and Customized Girl is one of the few sites I could find that offered any plus options at all. It’s an amazing feeling for bigger women to see clothes we want actually available in our size!” We have plans to expand our selection of curvy items even further. One of our goals is to cater to all types of bodies, so it’s great to hear positive feedback!

We just wanted to give a huge shout out to Carly for doing something really great and allowing Customized Girl to be a part of it. Are you a storefront owner doing something spectacular? Let us know! Shoot us your story at: CGstores@eretailing.com.

2018 Customized Girl Statement Maker Scholarship Winners

Another year, another scholarship contest closed! As always, we had some amazing entries for this year’s Customized Girl Scholarship. Our Statement Maker contest is centered around those who are looking to make a difference by sharing a powerful message with the rest of the world. Our job is to help bring that message to life by spreading it around. For the past 6 years, the Customized Girl Statement Maker Scholarship has helped students achieve their academic goals. Each candidate that was selected provided a bold and impactful statment that we knew the rest of the world needed to hear. We are so very excited and extremely honored to share with you the 5 amazing winners of 2018. We asked each of them these 3 questions:

1.) Describe yourself in three words?
2.) What is your ideal career path?
3.) Why is this statement important to you?


Tabitha Hunt

Statement: Success is to live life surrounded by your passions

1.) The three words that best describe me are determined, conscientious and empathetic.

2.) My ideal career path is to become an Elementary School Teacher.  I’m currently working toward my AA transfer to a bachelors degree program in Elementary Education at Washington State University 2020.

3.) Success is to live life surrounded by your passions. This statement embodies how I strive to live my life surrounding myself with people and the things I love. Particularly after completing  my bachelors degree, I will have the ability to work in an atmosphere where I can fully embrace my passions and enjoy the essence of living a successful life!


Amber Rivera

Statement: Trust your fear enough to let it push you to be your best self


1.) Amiable, Strongwilled, Sensible

2.) My ideal career is a sustainable consultant because it aligns my interest in business and my passion for taking care of the environment. I wanted to make a difference in the world around me, and I debated different careers that allowed me to accomplish that. I thought about politics, law, and medicine; then I realized that I spend a great deal of time reading about environmental issues and I was most interested in my business class.  I think that the business world wants to be more sustainable moving forward and helping to achieve that ideal of sustainable business is an ideal career for me.

Sally Lott

Statement: Be the change you want -for the future that we need.


1. Driven, confident, and kind.

2. I haven’t totally decided- but I either want to go into law, or into government and public administration.

3. I chose this statement because I am a firm believer that you have to be the change that you want to see. I feel that currently we are all more divided than ever; but I think that (the young people especially) are also more driven than ever! And I really do believe that we will be able to create the future that we want and need.


Rebekah Nelson

Statement: Do what you love and let it consume you 


1. Creative, Compassionate, Hardworking

2. My ideal career path is not clear to me right now, but am entering college in the fall of 2019 and will soon figure it all out. Being the creative and hardworking person I am, I do know however that I want to utilize my art and organization skills in some way to benefit and bring joy to others. I’ve always loved art as a child and was surrounded by many family members who loved it as well. So, it only makes sense to follow my heart and continue on the family tradition that is rooted deep in my bones.

3. I instantly fell in love with this statement when I read it, choosing to make it my mantra. In society, following our passions is usually considered something positive and highly encouraged right until the moment it involves being an artist. I made this my mantra to remind me daily that my passions are my passions for a reason, and I should never apologize or stray from them just to satisfy others.


Celeste Paglialunga

Statement: Kindness is the greatest superpower


1. I would say I am kind, open-minded, and hard-working.

2. My ideal career path is to get my Bachelors and Masters in Nursing and to work in a big hospital. 

3. This statement is important to me because being kind can make anyone’s day, and being kind brings people together.


We can’t thank you enough for sharing your inspirational statements with us and the world! We hope that this has motivated more young adults out there to become Statment Makers. We also wanted to give a big thanks to everyone who submitted a statement for the scholarship contest this year.

For 2019, we are going to change things up a bit. Two winners. $500 each. We’re asking you to post your “statement for the world” on Instagram. We can’t wait to see what’s in store! Until next year, Statement Makers!
