Customized Girl Annual School Scholarship

Having an education is a beautiful thing, but what isn’t, is the amount of money it costs to get that education. At Customized Girl, we want to help the women of tomorrow and we’re delighted to announce the Customized Girl Annual Scholarship!

As you have probably already noticed, we are all about statement makers and celebrating those who have an important message to share with the world. Statements are what we love and that’s why our scholarship is centered on making them!

As college students, we know you are busy enough with essays, exams and, more than likely, even a part-time job to help pay for the degree you are working towards, so we wanted to keep our scholarship simple and to the point. Share your statement with us in 140 characters or less, no longer than a tweet! Make it the one statement you think will change the world if people actually put it in to action!

We bet you’re wondering what you get if you win! Don’t worry, we didn’t forget. We just wanted to save the best for last! If you are chosen as the winner, you will receive a one time $2,500 scholarship to help with your college expenses, a unique shirt design and an interview with us, which will be featured on our blog. Pretty awesome, right?!

If we have piqued your interest, click the link below to read more about the details and to enter the Customized Girl Annual Scholarship!

Sad News About Our Marine Category

We have received a Cease & Desist letter from attorneys representing the United States Marine Corps. They have requested that we remove all Marine-related art and all designs that use the words Marines, USMC, etc.

It’s a very sad day for us, because we love providing our customers the ability to create their own designs using elements from our design center.

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.

Military Love Category 2

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 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!

Improved Print Quality

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

Our Mustache Tank Top & Other Prizes Were a Hit At the Beard Championships Raffle!

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 TankVintage Woman Mustache T-Shirt, Classic Imperial Mustache Undies and Mustache Skull Tote Bag.

Mustache Apparel for the RVA Beard League Charity Raffle

Friends of Feil Benefit in Chicago

Friends of Feil

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.

Fundraising for Breast Cancer Research

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.
