Proposal T-Shirt Story

July 14, 2016

This picture says it all! There’s always a story behind every t-shirt, and this one in particular was so sweet we just had to share it.  Jake came in asking if we could do just one custom infant t-shirt, and since we have no minimum for orders, we were glad we could help him out with his proposal t-shirt!



Jake and Lindsay Bacon’s Proposal Storywill you marry my daddy 3


Lindsay works nights as a nurse, and Jake is not normally home in the mornings when she gets off work. The day of the proposal, Jake arranged to go in late for work, and to have the babysitter show up later than usual in the morning. When Lindsay got home from work, their son Nolen met Lindsay at the door wearing his “Will You Marry My Daddy?” t-shirt, while Jake was close behind their son with flowers and the ring…and then she said yes! 🙂

Congratulations to the happy couple! A big shout out and thank you to Jake and Lindsay for letting us share their story.  Jake emailed us this kind note, too:

“I would like to send a thank you to the entire team for the shirt that you designed and printed for me to help me with my proposal.  I attached a picture of the shirt in action.  Also, one of your staff members asked for my permission to post the shirt on your website/instagram once I proposed.  You can tell her that it is now safe to do so and I would be happy to let you use it. Thanks again for helping me with this memorable moment! I will send customers your way as everyone thought the shirt looked amazing.”

We see all kinds of creativity come through the doors at Weiskamp which gives us the opportunity to learn more about our customers and their stories. While not every order is for a proposal t-shirt, every t-shirt has a story.  If you’d like to see your T-shirt Story on our blog, or even featured in our monthly newsletter, contact us, we’d love to see it and share it.
