How we started
Our history in the print and promotional advertising industry began in 1983 when George and Kay Bowles started printing custom caps and t shirts in a small bedroom of their home a few miles outside Alma, Arkansas. While working as a delivery driver for a local dairy company, George was excited to start printing caps on a small press for local groups and businesses. In October of 1984, the newly formed company moved to a storefront in Alma. With a new shop and a big dream, the business grew through dedication and hard work. In 1994 we purchased a building in downtown Alma (the former Adam's drug store) which doubled our floor space and allowed us to add embroidery equipment. In 2005, we purchased D&L Screen Printing in Van Buren; our first acquisition of a competitor. In late 2008, after 4 other small competitor buy-outs, the business was bursting at the seams and desperately needed more space. Later that year, we purchased another existing business, AllPrint, in Conway -- our first expansion to a market outside of Northwest Arkansas. In 2010, Ink Advertising was founded. With over 30 years of experience in the advertising and printing industry coupled with the ability and capacity to handle any order, we welcome the most challenging and unique jobs.
Ink Advertising is a third generation custom print and apparel company in based in Northwest Arkansas. Our services include screen printing, embroidery, paper printing, and large format printing services. We love what we do, and it shows in the quality of our work and the level of customer service we strive for.
