Even on the get go, we could already tell that Custom Ink is a company with a lot of heart. Their company is fueled by the passion to really preserve a business that is not just productive but also meaningful. Custom Ink was officially founded in 2003 by three college classmates who wanted to make a difference. Co-founder Marc Katz sees to it that their core values are still preserved even to this day and their friendly mascot Inky is the visual representation of their company values.
During the first years of Custom Ink, their product range was limited to only customizable t-shirts. But they have since developed and they now have a wide array of customizable products – from apparel like tees, business wear and outer wear to accessories and other fun stuff like bags, pens, umbrellas and ornaments. They also carry several different quality clothing brands like Adidas, Hanes, Nike and Anvil.
It is very notable that their products are very well categorized in the website. You would not have a hard time finding the kind of shirt you like because they are grouped in certain sub-categories: Budget Friendly, Premium, Organic, Trendy, etc. Prices are not readily displayed along with the products but you can get a quick quote for your probable order. Expect to spend around $20 – $30 for a quality t-shirt. Take note that some of their products have a minimum order requirement of 6 or more. If the design requires 5 colors or more, higher minimums may apply.
Their Design Lab is more than impressive. It is not just equipped with countless of good graphic designs but you can basically create almost any design you wish. With the hundreds of stock images, the dozens of fonts and colors, there’s a myriad of possibilities. All you need is to get your creative juices flowing. It also displays a pretty good 3D representation of your order and you can zoom in and rotate the view as you wish.
Standard delivery takes up to 2 weeks and shipping to the US is free. They can also accommodate replacements and refunds as long as you notify them within 15 days of receiving the order. If you have any problem or questions, you can call their live help that’s available 7 days a week.
Custom Ink’s website is fantastic – from the user interface to the design lab, it seems to be equipped with the ideal factors to make ordering and designing fun and easy. Their prices are a little higher than others and the minimum order requirements can be a turn off for some. Overall, they fair highly in our review because they deliver quality goods, provide great customer service and have an awesome website.
