Our Story


MAC Ink., is a Raleigh NC area based, family owned, custom and brand apparel printing company.  Our specialty is creating single print and short run print Premium Crafted Tee's at an economical price.  In fact, the ONLY thing more comfortable than our Tee's ... is our prices!

We offer original collections and fully customizable apparel design options to consumers online.  Custom apparel printing consultation and services locally (face to face), or via phone/email nationally.  As well as simple Print On Demand (POD) programs to schools, businesses, and organizations.  

All of our Premium Crafted Tee's are printed on the softest and best garments available today.  Which is why our "Go-To" for Premium Crafted Tee's is the Bella-Canvas Airlume Jersey Series garments ... which are made from 100% Combed & Ring Spun Cotton, the pinnacle of premium cotton.

 

Our mission is to empower individuals, businesses and organizations to communicate their brand, 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 local/family/woman led 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!

One Love!!! The Kennedy Ohana ... Charlie, Aiden, Mykael, Bree and Shawn (from L to R)
