Volunteering In Our Community – Giving Back With NNEMAP

As a small business, we understand the importance of connecting with others and making an impact, especially in the local community. With businesses and events starting to open up, we decided to return to our local food pantry, a cherished partner of ours, to help give back.

Recently, our employees spent their time volunteering with NNEMAP Food Pantry. They helped organize and pack nutritious food and other resources to give away for families in need. These items were donated by local churches, civic groups, corporate and foundation sponsors, and more.

Our volunteers shared their experiences:

Alyssa – “My time spent with NNEMAP Food Pantry was incredible. I was truly amazed at how organized and prepared they were. Every volunteer I worked with that morning was so friendly and helpful. I loved spending my Friday morning feeling like I’m making a difference and having fun while doing it! It was such a rewarding experience and I will definitely be returning soon.”   

Cindy – “After I left NNEMAP, I felt energized and wanting to do more. I enjoyed talking to the other volunteers, learning about the pantry, and the community. I’m excited for our next visit.”

Pictured below is a photo of the volunteers wearing shirts from our “Buy A Shirt, Buy A Meal” storefront. This storefront was created to help provide additional meals to families in need in the Columbus, Ohio area. All of the profit that comes from these sales will go directly to the NNEMAP Food Pantry to help keep their shelves stocked. This is such a fun way to give back and we encourage you to design your own tee from this storefront and help out the local community!

Giving back is such a fulfilling feeling and a great way to get to know your community. Whether you also decide to help out at a local food pantry in your area, or another organization that offers assistance to those less fortunate, we encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and give your time to those in need.

A big THANK YOU to NNEMAP Food Pantry for having us!

Top 10 Fall Sports Designs

2020 has been one heck of a year! We’ve all gone on a roller coaster of disappointments and surprises that will surely sear the memory of 2020 into all of our brains for years to come. One of the biggest disappointments was the cancelation of sports across all kinds of arenas, pun intended.

Even though most of us are learning virtually, we want to keep that school spirit alive. Here’s our top 10 list of fall sports designs that will show we never lose our sporting spirit.

#1 Custom Football Team Letterman

The classic and simple football letterman design

#9 Football Mom Shirt Heart

Football just wouldn’t be great without the football moms cheering on their players.

#10 Fantasy Football Loser Unicorn

Even if most sports are canceled, our fantasy teams can still lead us to victory….or defeat if you suck at fantasy football like me.

If you are lucky enough to attend sports this year, make sure to do so safely! Personalize one of our custom face masks with your favorite team or player and practice social distancing. We’re all looking forward to getting our fall sports back as soon as possible!

Storefront Spotlight – Back 2 School with BRAYLON!

We love seeing the creativity that all of our storefront owners use to make their own original designs. Occasionally, we highlight one of these storefronts to show great examples of how our storefronts can be used to raise awareness, share a feeling, spread a vibe, or whatever else you want to communicate with the world.

Today we’re sharing a super creative and thoughtful storefront run by 7-year-old Braylon! Braylon, with the help of his MOM-ager, Felicia, decided he wanted to make designs for his virtual back-to-school experiences this year. Here are just a few of his awesome hand-drawn designs!

1st Day Of School Outfit

Braylon’s got it figured out. With so many schools going virtual this year, why not swap out those fancy dress clothes for these super comfy and fun pajamas on the first day of school? No need to carry your custom backpack either when all your classes are in the same room, so put the backpack on your shirt instead!

School Rocks! Sweatshirt

Half of everything is the mindset. This design guarantees you’re starting off with a positive vibe by declaring ‘Virtual School Rocks’! Braylon’s awesome hand-drawn guitar that he uploaded in our design center matches the custom text on this design perfectly. He’s sure to rock all year long.


You can’t wear the same pair of custom pajamas all week long, so why not make a second pair declaring how much you LOVE virtual school! I know working from home has provided us the same wardrobe options. Braylon shares his excitement for his new school dress code with an adorable eye heart emoji he drew himself!

Roarin’ Tshirt

Braylon keeps the energy high with his designs, which is just what some of us need when things get tough. Keep that dinosaur energy strong with this awesome ‘Roarin’ into Virtual School’ design. Show no fear with that dinosaur spirit we all have buried deep down. Thanks to Braylon, we can harness that monster confidence.

We’re always looking for the next stand-out storefront on Customized Girl. We love seeing everyone’s awesome and creative designs just like Braylons! Whether you’re uploading your own hand-drawn artwork to custom tees and custom hoodies or working solely with the tools we provide in our design center, our custom Storefronts are a great way to make extra cash and share your creativity with the world!

Top 5 T-Shirt Design Tips

Designing t-shirts, while fun, can sometimes seem daunting. You want your shirts to look good but maybe you’re just not sure where to start. We’ve rounded up these 5 simple tips to help your t-shirt designs reach the pinnacle of quality! Here are our Top 5 T-Shirt Design Tips.

1. Keep It Simple

Good t-shirt design starts with a simple message. Big bold text that’s easy to read from a distance is key when designing shirts. Also, if you’re using art on your shirts make sure the art looks good. Like the text, your artwork should be readable from a distance and not confuse the person who’s looking at it. Finally, don’t use too much text in your design. You’re making a shirt, not writing a novel. Make your statement in as few words as possible.

2. Consider Your Colors

When you’re working on your designs, it’s important to consider the colors that you’re using. Your design should ‘POP’ off the shirt and catch the viewer’s attention. Using garment colors that are similar to the colors in your design (color on color) will lessen the effect of your print or make it impossible to see. Simple color theory, contrasting colors, complementary colors, etc., can make a huge difference in your design. Try experimenting with the colors in your design!

3. Scale & Size

What does scale & size mean? Basically, it means your design should be proportionately sized on the shirt and centered or balanced. Avoid stretching and distorting your image to make it fit. A properly sized, scaled, and centered design is your ticket to awesome tees.

4. Quality Uploads

The best part of on-demand direct to garment (DTG) printing is the ability to easily print beautiful, vibrant, full-color photos on to almost any kind of shirt. That is, as long as you’re using large high-quality images in your designs! Try to avoid low pixel count, blurry, or generally poor quality images when making your shirts. They’ll look equally low quality once they’re printed! We recommend at least a 1000×1000 pixel upload when using your own artwork, logo, or photograph.

5. Fabric Matters

When you’re choosing which shirt to get your print on, take some time to read the product information. 100% cotton produces the best prints, it’s the fabric that most inks are designed for. However, if you want something that’s a little more comfortable and you’re willing to sacrifice a little vibrance with your print, a tri-blend tee may be what you’re looking for. We use filters in our design center to simulate how your image will print, so if it looks faded when you’re designing, expect it to look faded when it arrives!

Your Words, Your Message

The beauty of on-demand custom printing is the ability to print any message in any quantity for any person or group. You’re not stuck with 600 shirts that all say the same thing. You can make 600 different shirts for 600 of your closest friends and family with unique messages on each one! That’s what truly separates us from other custom apparel printers.

This leads us to a question; what is your message? Is there a political issue on your mind? Are you wanting to stand up for social justice? Maybe you just have a really funny idea for a novelty shirt, or you want to share some inspirational quotes with those around you. Whatever your message may be, we are here to help you spread that message. Put it on a shirt, mug, hat, or bag and show the world your words.

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!
