‘Tis the season to get ugly! Ugly Christmas sweaters that is. The ugly Christmas sweater trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon, and we’re just fine with that. Custom Christmas sweaters are some of our best selling products, even when it’s not cold outside! So we decided to make a list of 12 of our favorite designs to share with you this year to get into the holiday spirit.
Just look at these happy customers! They all used Customized Girl to make their own Custom Tank Tops and they love it.
Let’s start at the top. These ladies are celebrating the bride-to-be with custom tanks for the bachelorette party. They found our “All Aboard the Hot Mess Express” design and then they added their own flare: custom text that says “Caitlin’s Bachelorette”
Look at them! They’re having a blast in their matching tanks!
But you can customize more than just the text. For an example, see below.
If you have created your own graphic or illustration, just use the Upload Image tab in our design center. We’d love to print it on any tank, including this super cute slim fit crop top as pictured. (This Maine Vibes design is so cute, great work girl.)
But let’s say Halloween is coming up and you need a quick costume? Well look no further! Our next customer used our design center to create an homage to the incredible 1980s aesthetic of Olivia Netwon-John.
There’s a few accessories here to help: a super high ponytail, a fanny pack, and some leg warmers. Just tie your tank top in a cute little knot and you’re ready. Let’s get physical.
But what if you want to make a truly special memory with your best friend? You better believe custom tank tops can help.
These friends are wearing tanks that say “Nothing Sense We’re” and “Makes When Apart”. It makes no sense right?
Right! That’s the whole point! Put them together and they say “Nothing Makes Sense When We’re Apart”. Adorable!
These happy customers went the extra mile and personalized each design with their names. This shot makes for some incredible Instagram content, we have to admit.
You can shop more Best Friend Tank Top options here.
If you want to feel inspired by even more happy customers wearing their custom tank tops from Customized Girl then we have one last suggestion:
Customized Girl gets quite a few orders from brides-to-be who have designed custom tanks and tees for their bachelorette party. We also get a lot of orders for customized running shirts for races. Our latest Label Rebel is a little bit of both!
Celeste customized racerback tank tops for her and her bachelorette party attendees. Celeste and her girls headed to Key West for a bachelorette party half marathon! Being a Label Rebel, she threw a bachelorette bash truly unique to her.
“I loved the tank tops! I got married on March 1st and that was our wedding logo. My bachelorette party was in Key West in January and we ran the annual Key West half marathon and 5K. It was fun since it was such a big group of us. I ran with a veil so everyone knew I was the bride. I also wore the tank on the morning of wedding for a run on the beach with my sis.”
More Label Rebels:
This month’s Label Rebel customized cheerleading sweatshirts for her new cheer squad. Happy with the quality of Customized Girl’s printing the previous year, Amanda chose to have another year’s sweatshirts printed with us again!
“We were really happy with our items! We had a small glitch in one of the bags but with a quick picture and explanation of the broken zipper your team quickly shipped off a replacement personalized bag. It was amazing!
We are a new Cheer team in Fort Mcmurray, Alberta and received your personalized sweaters last year so we went with your company again! We have sponsors now so our sweaters have more detail but they were done really well.”
We get a lot of orders for custom cheerleading shirts and apparel and we’re always happy to print them!

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!
“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!”
“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.”
More Label Rebels:
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.
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!

Looking to start a fashion line, but not sure where to begin? Our Label Rebel Isabella Rose Taylor used Customized Girl at the beginning of her career to create one-of-kind designs to test the market. She created an amazing website to sell her fashion line and had Customized Girl do some of the initial printing for her shirts and tanks. Since then, her brand has exploded into a thriving business. She’s been featured on The Today Show, in the Wall Street Journal, and in a ton of other amazing shows and newspapers. And get this: she is twelve years old! Yeah, she is a rather incredible young person.
After things really took off, she needed to produce her line at a higher volume. She eventually began purchasing from a local vendor, but she still uses Customized Girl today for samples. If you have the itch to start your own fashion line, Customized Girl just might be the solution to help you get started, like it was for Isabella! Here’s more about Isabella and the story behind her designs and business.
Isabella Rose Taylor is a 12-year-old fashion designer and fine artist from Austin, Texas. With a penchant for design and a lifelong passion for art, Isabella began designing when she was just nine years old, and launched her first clothing collection in February 2012 on her website at www.isabellarosetaylor.com. In September 2012, Isabella debuted her 2013 fall collection in her first runway show during Austin Fashion Week. Isabella quickly caught the attention of the national media and was profiled by The Associated Press that same month. In 2012, she won the Rising Star Award for Fashion at Austin Fashion Week. Currently, she has been chosen as an “Emerging Designer” for the WWD-MAGIC Emerging Designer Showcase.
Isabella’s fashion collection is a natural extension of her lifelong passion for art. She believes fashion and art are inextricably connected. This sentiment is reflected in her motto, “If art had legs it would be fashion.” Isabella began painting when she was three years old and continues to paint every day. A prolific artist, she had her first two gallery shows in 2012 when she was 11. Her paintings were shown at the 2002 Gallery in Austin and at Kristy Stubbs Gallery in Dallas, where they sold out in a matter of months. Currently, Isabella’s paintings can be purchased through Kristy Stubbs Gallery in Dallas, Texas. Additionally, she has appeared on the TODAY show and the Steve Harvey Show.
Isabella is also a published writer and poet. She previously served as an editor for Amazing Kids! Magazine and was on the advisory board for Creative Kids Magazine. She is also a member of Mensa and a Davidson Youth Scholar. At only 12 years old, she is a full-time college student pursuing a degree in Art. In 2012, she won the Scholastic Art & Writing Gold Key Award for her couture. Isabella lives in Austin Texas with her family.”

Label Rebel Nat designed these custom crop tops and custom shirts for herself and her group of friends who attended the EDC rave. The EDC rave, also known as Electric Daisy Carnival, is a Friday and Saturday celebration that usually takes place during the month of November.
Nat first chose our Ladies Flowy Cropped Tank, which comes in a variety of colors. But the most sensible colors for a rave would of course be the neons.
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 crop tanks and then also unisex t-shirts for the guys. She was able to find several different options, all in neons. 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
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!”

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!”
