Custom Ink was highlighted in the Dallas Morning News: "Little perks and meaningful practices yield high impact for Top 100 winners".
At Custom Ink, "Inkers" get free snacks, fruit and coffee 24/7, a catered snack on Tuesdays and lunch on Thursdays. The company also has special food events such as smoothies, omelette bars, pancake breakfasts and barista days.
"The tradition of eating together has been important from the beginning of the company," says original Inker Ben Carter. "It all started because we were together for insane hours and it was convenient to all eat at the same time, but we realized the importance of a meal shared and still do it today."
Another unusual perk at the company: puppy day, when puppies are brought on site for adoption and snuggles.

NICE WORK INKERS!
Last week was our annual Pet Week, featuring a Pet Adoption day with Homeward Trails Animal Rescue and Humane Rescue Alliance! Several Inkers applied to adopt or foster animals and we also raised over $200, 75lbs of pet food, and 70+ other pet supplies to donate to our rescue partners. Giving back never looked so cute! #ThreeHeartsTuesday
