Want a personalized icon? No problem! We’d be happy to create a personalized “I am Shaving for…” digital t-shirt icon for you. Just let us know what you would like to have on the icon (limit is eight characters including spaces) and we’ll email it to you.

We’ve had a couple of requests to have these made into real t-shirts. Unfortunately, this is not something we are able to offer this year, but we will discuss it as an option for next year.
