Our Story

MAC Ink. is a grass root, family owned and run, premium brand and custom printing apparel company,   We specialize in offering consumers and businesses a lower cost and higher quality alternative to screen printed apparel.  We utilize current DTG (Direct-to-garment) technology to specialize in making "Your Favorite T-Shirt"!  Using only premium grade garments, all of our T-Shirts are incredibly soft and lightweight, yet durable with just the right amount of stretch.  Turning apparel staples into statements, we empower you to create the perfect look, feel and fit.  The only thing more comfortable than our t-shirts ... is our pricing!

Our mission is to empower individuals, businesses and organizations to communicate their identity & message creatively through custom & branded apparel.  We also strive to be the best corporate citizens we can in everything we do.  Whether that is by choosing water-based, non-toxic and environmentally safe inks, to getting involved in community development projects.  MAC Ink. is committed to connecting with our local communities, sharing our time and resources to help where we can.

To start making good on that commitment right away, we have decided to donate 3% of our 2019 sales to the Autism Society of North Carolina.  Having friends and family with children in the spectrum, we understand the challenges for families in the autism community.  The Autism Society of North Carolina helps by offering advocacy, training and education, and direct care.  They also have a statewide network of resources, connecting individuals with autism and their families to life-changing programs and supports unavailable anywhere else.

We're proud of the strong roots we are building as a "Woman Owned Business" in our community. We are currently in the process of becoming Certified by The Office for Historically Underutilized Businesses as a HUB firm with the Statewide Uniform Certification (SWUC) Program.

MAC Ink. is the brainchild of creative/artist, Bree Kennedy and her entrepreneurial-minded partner and husband Shawn Kennedy. Bree, who will serve as the managing partner and Director of Art, is a photographer by trade, mother of three by choice and an amazingly talented artist by the grace of God. Shawn, brings over a decade of experience in sales, marketing, website development, branding, apparel line development and business ownership experience to the table.

Together we aspire to build a future and create a legacy for our 3 children (Mykael, Aiden and Charlie) to build upon.  In case you didn't know, that is where we get the M-A-C from in MAC Ink.  We greatly appreciate your help and willingness to support us by purchasing a t-shirt/s from us and helping us pursue the achievement of the American dream!
