There's a fun new place coming to town for sports teams, charity groups, and bridal tribes to get their matching swag. Online custom T-shirt retailer Custom Ink is opening a brick-and-mortar showroom in Southlake. It is expected to open in April, a store representative says.

The 1,526-square foot showroom, going into the Park Village Shopping Center, is the brand's first storefront in Tarrant County and sixth in Texas. There are also DFW locations in Dallas and inside Walmart stores in Carrollton and Allen, according to the website.

Based in Fairfax, Virginia, Custom Ink touts itself as "the leading provider of custom apparel and accessories for groups, teams, and occasions."

Amanda Hanlon, the company's director of store operations, says close-knit Southlake is the perfect fit for a brick-and-mortar shop.

“From the baseball teams at Bicentennial Park to the students of Carroll High School, Southlake is built around community,” she says in a release. “Custom Ink believes that every group can unite its members through the power of custom gear, and we’re delighted to open a local showroom in Southlake to help build that community bond.”

At the store, shoppers will be able to meet one-on-one with knowledgeable team members to design their products. They go beyond mere T-shirts, offering a wide selection of customizable bags, hats, office supplies, drinkware, and tech accessories, as well.

Think "team bride" totes, PTA pullovers, and cooking club cutting boards.

A limited selection of merchandise also be available for in-store, same-day printing. They also offer community fundraising initiatives.

Park Village — not to be confused with Southlake Town Square — is the shopping center with popular retailers and restaurants like REI, Sur la Table, and Gloria's.

The address is 1001 East Southlake Blvd., Southlake.
