I #Yam Making My Own Shirt With CustomInk!

I don’t like my blog to be too crowded with adds, so I try to carefully choose which affiliate programs I join. If they aren’t something I would use personally, how can I expect my readers to shop there? So I decided to test out the CustomInk website and see what it’s all about.

What better way than to design a shirt for The Outspoken Yam? The site is ridiculously easy to navigate and the design tools walk you right through the process.

First you can choose an item to customize- they had tons of different shirt choices, from Hanes Beefy Tees, to lightweight American Apparel shirts (I always love those, they are super soft against your skin), to raglan sleeve baseball tees and even camo and tie-dyed prints! I resisted the tie-dye because I wasn’t sure how well the design would show up and instead went for an Anvil Baseball Raglan in Dark Gray with Black Sleeves.

You could probably spend all day browsing through their art choices- they have quite an array of categories and designs. Some were unexpectedly quirky, which I love. You can also search by keyword to speed things along. I did NOT see any yams, which I find to be a glaring oversight. Are you listening, CustomInk? Get on the yam bandwagon before it mashes you! Luckily, you can also upload your own artwork if they don’t have what you need.

Anyway! I went with an abstract star pattern with some bold pops of pink and yellow that I thought stood out nicely from the black and gray scheme. I then used the handy text editor to add my words, tilting them to match the design. They have a wide selection of fun fonts, but I went with Latin Rumba. because yams are well known for their rumba-ing.

Check out my results!


Pretty snazzy, right? I will be selling these during my fall tour with The Can-Shaped Cranberry Sauce, dates TBA!
