Agent Ink Apparel was founded in 2017 by Joseph Nowlin. The original idea for Agent Ink was conceived after he'd unexpectedly won a jersey design contest for a professional esports team. He quickly realized his knack for apparel design & began subcontracting for esports teams.
He landed many of his first clients not from any degree or credibility, but solely based on his unique style of design. After proving himself and the market, he created a design agency called "Agent Inq" (Agent Ink was too expensive a domain), and began marketing the services to the esports scene. In the beginning teams would take the finished apparel designs and have them printed by a third party who would often butcher the print, delivering a product far from that of the original design. The frequently disappointed clients became a pain point. It just didn't sit right. It was at this point that he decided he was going to do it right.
After several interesting phone calls & a few dozen handshakes later Agent Inq had acquired a manufacturer and distribution partner. Agent Inq then shifted from a design agency into a multi-faceted apparel company offering comprehensive design and printing services. Agent Ink Apparel, LLC was officially registered in 2017.
