Brief Company History

The roots of the company trace back to Miami University.  Fueled with a common desire of entrepreneurship and the need for custom clothing, 717 Ink was born.  Our name was inspired by the founder’s college address – 717 S. Main Street.

We opened our doors in the fall of 2009 in a modest 4,000 square foot facility in Lakewood Ohio with 1 automatic press and 1 manual press.  Today, we operate out of 30,000 square foot facility with 4 automatic presses, 3 manual presses, 12 embroidery heads, and over 75 team members running 2 shifts year round.  We attribute our success to living by our vision, mission, and values. We believe in offering personal service, simplicity in the ordering process, and ensuring our services are affordable in the market place.
