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.

In a few days, CustomInk is going to hold its 3rd Annual Chili Cookoff, which is always an exciting event for many amateur cooks and all hungry Inkers here in the office. There’s expected to be many chilis to try and great prizes to be won. There was even a trucker hat design contest for the official Chili Cookoff logo. And with over twenty entries, this beautiful winning design at right took the cake… Or I should say – chili.
Now, while prepping my chili-recipe, I was trying to think of a good name for my cookoff team and even the chili itself and remembered that there’s been some really funny names submitted by entrants in years past. Plus our customers who have entered their own cookoffs have made shirts with clever names for their chilis and cookoff teams. So after perusing through some customer orders, past cookoff entries, and brainstorming a few funny names with colleagues, we compiled a list of our favorites to share.
Check them out. Feel free to borrow one for your cookoff t-shirts or personalized aprons and look your best at your chili cookoff extravaganza – so that if you don’t win, you’ll still be stylin’.
