Custom Ink's push into brick-and-mortar includes positions inside Michaels, Walmart

Fairfax custom printing company Custom Ink is stealing a beat from other big brands by testing out a brick-and-mortar retail strategy. In early 2018, Custom Ink LLC had just 10 retail locations spread across Virginia, Texas and Nevada. Six of those locations are inside craft and hobby store Michaels (NASDAQ: MIK), while three are inside Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) stores.
