Careers

Ditch the suit - and start looking forward to work!

A Company with Heart

Our 1st Holiday Party in 2001

We like to say, "Don't let the flip-flops fool ya" - and it's true. Sure, it's a casual work environment, but we play hard and work harder. We know our customers are counting on us to come through for them, and that's important to every Inker - no matter what role they're in. Our core values of the Golden Rule, Ownership, and Innovation define how we treat team members, how team members treat each other, and how we treat our customers and community. Caring about others, taking pride in our work, and improving the way we do things means that we're ultimately "doing the right thing" in business, which is both its own reward and a path to success.

The Environment

Environment

We love coming to work every day! The office space itself is motivating and inspirational for our creative line of work. Inkers are organized into teams around the office so they can ask advice, offer opinions, and support and encourage each other. Inker personalities are evident in personal workspaces, which are decorated with giant Redskin helmets on the walls, pictures of Jerry Garcia, action figures patrolling desktops, bobble-heads, Hello Kitty collections, and even displays of favorite customer designs. Plus, customer feedback and photos adorn the walls of the office, and these displays remind Inkers with whom we do business and the reason we're all here: to keep working to make customers happy!

A "Great Place to Work"

Great-place-to-work

Folks first picked up on our positive energy and happy work environment in 2005, when "Washingtonian Magazine" named us one of its 55 "Great Places to Work" in the Washington, DC area. Since then, we've been recognized locally, by both Northern Virginia Family Services and The Northern Nevada Human Resources Association, and nationally, by Fortune Magaizeine, Entrepreneur Magazine and The Great Place to Work® Institute.

We've ranked with the cream of the crop, but we don't let this go to our heads. To us, it's about people. Truly listening to our team members, and giving them real ownership in CustomInk helps us build a great place together. At the end of the day, we're like a family - and that's important.
