As someone who absolutely loves hosting and attending events, I always think of details that will make for better experiences. Things like the event theme, food and drink, timing, entertainment, and guest gifts all come into play and consideration when I’m starting to plan for an event.
Every month I plan an event for DC area influencers, coined Bubbles & Bloggers, to come together in an inclusive environment and network. I try to change up the event activity every month to do something new so the events stay fresh and exciting. For the month of August, I wanted to do something extra special for the group and I turned to Custom Ink to assist!
For those unfamiliar with Custom Ink, Custom Ink is *the* place to go for quality custom products for events, weddings, birthdays, graduations, bachelorette parties or girls trips, and more. Their product selection is huge and I love all the options which range from shirts, bags, hats, drinkware, office supplies, and tech items. Custom Ink uses creative design inspiration, high quality merchandise, caring service and innovative design tools to produce the best keepsakes and products for events.
When choosing an item for my event, I decided on medium sized 100% cotton totes bags as they are widely appealing and lets face it- everyone can use a tote bag! The totes were completely customizable from the color of the tote, to the text, to using your own graphic. Custom Ink can also create a graphic for you- which I thought was a really cool feature. I have a logo for Bubbles & Bloggers I created awhile ago, so I submitted it with the request. Custom Ink reviewed and sent me a recommended edit to the logo, which made the logo look even better! Talk about great customer service- I felt they took my product request seriously and they tailored it for an even more appealing product. The tote bags arrived within 2 weeks, so the turnaround time was super short and they also offer expedited product orders for last minute events.
For the August Bubbles & Bloggers meet up, we had an intimate group event for a succulent and orchid arranging workshop with Urban Jungle DC at The Embassy Row Hotel. I placed the tote bags out as a surprise to the group, and they were a total hit! It was such a great feeling to surprise the group with a personalized Bubbles & Bloggers keepsake that they will remember the event by.

Whether hosting a intimate succulent arranging workshop or planning a huge family reunion, Custom Ink has something that can appeal to any event. Custom Ink even carries sizing and styles for everyone- starting at infant to 6XL! After experiencing the process from start to finish with Custom Ink, I highly recommend utilizing their services for any event!
