About Ink Factory

We empower organizations to communicate visually

Co-founders Dusty, Lindsay, and Ryan combined their diverse backgrounds to create Ink Factory in 2011. Since then, Ink Factory has helped a vast array of organizations (from Fortune 100 companies to non-profits) bring their ideas to life with the help of visual note-taking.

Founded on a mighty mission

The methods we use to help businesses in every corner of the world are constantly evolving thanks to new technology, techniques, and thought-provoking creativity. But one thing remains constant–our mission is to create visual experiences that inspire and engage.
