“#ChooseKindness Anti-Bullying Workshop” and “Mary Poppins flies to Douglas County High School” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!
With cyber bullying all over the internet, one young lady from Knoxville, TN decided to host her own anti-bullying workshop to promote more kindness! She also brought in a local police officer who talked about the state laws against bullying and harassment. Her #choosekindness design was so popular she had to order more after the workshop.
The theater department at Douglas County High School in Castle Rock, CO has ordered the past three cast shirts from CustomInk. This year was no different and the cast made supercalifragilisticexpialidocious t-shirts to remember their production of Mary Poppins!

Represent’s Social Commerce Platform Helps Influencers Sell T-shirts and Merchandise for Charity or Profit; Investors Include Ashton Kutcher, Guy Oseary, James Franco
Fairfax, VA – February 4, 2016 – CustomInk, the leader in custom apparel and accessories for groups and communities, today announced its entry into a definitive agreement to acquire Represent, a Los Angeles-based social commerce startup that helps influencers like actors, athletes, musicians, and thought leaders create and sell limited-run t-shirts and merchandise to their fans and followers. With its roots in celebrity-backed social media fundraising campaigns, Represent has attracted high-profile investors including Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary of Sound Ventures, James Franco, and WME/IMG.
“In the entertainment world, influence is an even more powerful force than fame,” said Bryan Baum, co-founder and CEO of Represent. “Represent offers a new and innovative way for influential celebrities to mobilize and monetize their passionate and loyal fan bases. The real metric in the world of social commerce is not the number of followers but the tangible actions they take, and the influencers who use Represent have developed deep relationships with their fans who in turn are eager to show their support by buying custom t-shirts and merchandise.”
Represent has created a sophisticated digital marketing and merchandising platform for influencers to sell merchandise in time-limited campaigns. Represent also works with other influencers, such as prominent YouTubers and independent entrepreneurs, to create and sell affinity-based custom t-shirts and other merchandise, as well as major sports and entertainment brands.
