InkHead Promotional Products has earned a place on Inc.Magazines prestigious Inc.5000 list of the 5000 best-performing companies in America for the third year in a row, making it one of the few promotional-products distributors to experience growth in the economic downturn and confirming its place as a rock-solid company with which to do business.
Winder, GA September 14, 2010 – For the third year in a row, InkHead Promotional Products has earned a prominent position on Inc.

InkHead jumped more than 1000 places to rise on this prestigious list that includes some of the biggest success stories of the last 30 years, including Microsoft, Zappos, Patagonia, and Oracle.
Inc., the nation’s leading journal of entrepreneurship, compiles its annual list based on a rigid set of criteria, including a $2 million revenue floor in 2008, to evaluate companies in all industries across the spectrum and ranks them according to percentage revenue growth over the last three years.
