CustomInk.com - A Great Place to Work in the Washington DC Area

Free Food, Customer Focus and the Golden Rule Make the Difference for Online Custom Apparel Company

Falls Church, VA - November 10, 2005 - Washingtonian Magazine named CustomInk.com one of its 55 "Great Places to Work in the Washington, DC area. The magazine extended the honor to CustomInk.com after surveying over 200 companies throughout the Washington DC region. The company was highlighted by the magazine for its casual, yet results-oriented work environment.

"The recognition from the Washingtonian Magazine is an honor," said Allyson Ayers, Team Development Coordinator at CustomInk.com. "We strive to hire great people and provide them an empowering work environment. While 'Free Lunch Fridays' and 'Riddle Tuesdays' are fun for everyone, I believe what really makes our team members happy is that everyone is empowered to do what is right for our customers. There's no better job than one where you are making customers happy!"

The custom apparel company houses over ninety team members in a Tyson's Corner office, and the expansion continues. In 2005, CustomInk.com added dozens of production artists, sales and service representatives, e-commerce software engineers and others in administrative and marketing roles, and the company expects to continue growing in these areas in the coming year.

CustomInk.com has kept its core values in focus since its inception in March of 2000. The "Golden Rule," where customers, partners, and team members are treated the way we would all like to be treated, guides the company at all levels. The other two core values-ownership and innovation-also influence decisions on a daily basis. At CustomInk.com, it's not just jargon, but a way of doing business that makes everyone feel good.

"The Golden Rule is the inspiration for much of how the company treats its team members," said Joe Zaczyk, Business Manager. "Similar to how our customers turn to us to create their one-of-a-kind shirts and hats, all our team members are one-of-a-kind and deserve to be respected that way."

CustomInk.com's core values are lived by the team every day and presented on Day One of working at the company. Everyone is relaxed but dedicated to the job, and CustomInk team members take pride in their work. The corporate culture can best be described-and has been by team members-as team-oriented, supportive, relaxed, easy-going, fun, friendly, flexible, hard-working, and dedicated.  At CustomInk.com, the team members have applied the Golden Rule to the creation and development of an ideal company, one that promises to treat each customer with respect.
