About Our Company

Insane Ink is an entrepreneurial course at Piedmont Hills High School that runs an apparel customization company. This class is designed to give students hands-on experience running a business and to teach them the fundamentals of economics. The company was created by Mr. Mitch Method and Mr. Richard Langone in 1998. For the past 18 years, Mr. Method has advised each new incoming class. In addition, a second adviser Mrs. Diane Pereira has joined the Insane Ink team. Students are responsible for running the company while Mr. Method, Mrs. Pereira and the Executive Board advise and oversee the company. We offer a variety of custom apparel for clubs, organizations, school classes, events, and other local businesses. Each order is thoroughly analyzed for an affordable price, quality design, and customer communication.

The objective of our business is to run the business successfully while maintaining a constant level of customer satisfaction and give back to the community. Not only are we here to supply quality services on behalf of our customers as a business, but we are also determined to allocate 50% of our entire profit towards philanthropy with our aim of giving back to the community. We are also able to offer our services at very competitive prices, much lower than that of other vendors. For more information on our prices, please go to our pricing page or contact us.


  1. Can we have our own customized shirts saying what we want it to say?

    Answer: If you want 20 or less shirts then you can order DTG shirts which allows us to print ANY design that is not white on a T-shirt or Long Sleeve that is white or grey

  2. Do you have to be good at a specific thing in order to be in insane ink (like specific jobs right at the start) or do they actually teach you before they make you do things on your own in order to find the thing that you should be in charge of?

    Answer: No, you don’t have to be good at a specific thing in order to be in Insane Ink because you will be able to learn all of the components to a job! For example, each team has their own speciality which is graphic design, finance, and marketing. However, every team member has the opportunity to engage with each one because we learn about all of them together!

  3. Hi! I would like to know if I can get a custom shirt printed and purchased through Insane Ink.

    Answer: Yes! If you want only a couple shirts you can order a DTG shirt, meaning we can print ANY design on a T-shirt (white, grey) or a Long Sleeve (white, grey) on campus! You just need to send us either your design (jpeg or png) or the idea and we can design for you. With DTG shirts, you are not limited in color (except white) or size of your design!

  4. What kinds of clothing are available to print? if hoodies can be printed, how much is 6 hoodies? if not, how much are long sleeve shirts?

    Answer: For DTG, we have long sleeve and short sleeve shirts available, and can print any colors except white. Pricing for DTG can be found attached below. If this is a regular order of over 20 shirts, you can check our website for a catalog with all of the apparel options. Some of the items include hoodies, long and short sleeve shirts, windbreakers, quarter zips, and more. Pricing would depend on your specific order, and you can contact an Insane Ink representative for more information.

  5. Is there anything I would need to know prior to joining Insane Ink?

    Answer: Insane Ink is a business class, so expect to study material that is not directly connected to the custom T-shirt business, such as the stock market. You will need to put in effort to get a good grade in this class.

  6. How does the position system work? Does it take several years to achieve high positions within the business?

    Answer: Experience is not needed to run for a position within the business. In fact, most of the officers are taking Insane Ink for the first time. There will be interviews for the board and also speeches for the CEO.

  7. What activities are done on a regular basis within the class?

    Answer: Students work in teams to produce shirts, with each person delegated a specific role (marketing, finance, and graphic design). As a class, students participate in multiple philanthropic events, which they have the opportunity to lead. Apart from that, students also learn about the workings of a business, the stock market, as well as getting tools to be successful in getting a job in the real world.
