InkHead Promotional Products has done it again. With an exceptional growth rate of 57.6 percent from 2005 to 2008, InkHead has earned a spot on the exclusive Inc.5000–the list of fastest growing companies as reviewed by Inc. Magazine. The 2009 Inc.5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. InkHead went from 2005 revenues of $2.0 million to 2008 revenues totaling $3.1 million. Not surprisingly, this is InkHead’s second appearance on the Inc.5000 in as many years.
As healthy as the bottom line sounds, the InkHead team also grew in size and scope. While most companies were downsizing during this challenging economic period, InkHead added 29 employees from 2007 to 2009 and refined their sales models and team structure to position themselves for enhanced access to new markets. This is precisely the same formula that brought them from virtual obscurity to one of the most successful promotional products distributor on the Internet.
Since its inception in 2003, InkHead has shown phenomenal growth and uncommon resilience in a challenging economy. With an amazing 522 percent growth rate through 2006, InkHead was declared the second fastest growing distributor in the advertising specialties industry by the Advertising Specialty Institute. InkHead also garnered praise from Inc. Magazine by being ranked No. 35 in the Top 100 Businesses in Atlanta and No. 64 in the Top 100 Business Services Companies.
