Inked Custom Apparel supports The Atomic Project

We at Inked Custom Apparel are always proud when our t-shirts help out very worth while events. We were excited to print t-shirts to benefit The Atomic Project.


The Atomic Project was created by Atomic Salon & Atomic 2 Salon and was a benefit for the Frankie Lemmon Foundation.

In the summer of 2013, Atomic Salon Uptown and Atomic Salon Downtown are planning to host the first annual fundraising project known as ‘The Atomic Project’ in an effort to raise funds for the nonprofit organization The Frankie Lemmon School and Foundation. The Project was born when the owners, Joey Humphrey and Shannon Lamm, decided they wanted to create a night that’s solely about giving back to the community that supports us so much.

The Frankie Lemmon School and Developmental Center is an organization founded here in Raleigh, and is completely locally funded through donations and fundraising efforts. It is a school that provides life changing education that develops into successful social participation for children with mental and physical disabilities. The Frankie Lemmon Foundation offers tuition-free instruction to children ages 3 to 6 years old with developmental delays to include Autism and Downs Syndrome.

Take A Stand Against…campaign

Once again Inked Custom Apparel was very pleased to be working with ACHS(Appomattox County High School) in Appomattox, VA on their Take A Stand Against… campaign. The students developed these shirts as a public statement to take a stand against many current issues that have an impact on the lives of these high school students. Among the topics to Take A Stand Against were, Cancer–Texting & Driving–Drinking & Driving–Bullying–Ignorance–Drugs & Alcohol. We are proud of the team of over 100 participants in this campaign and we hope it grows yearly.

Featured Artist-Franky Kokosza and The Wreckerd Mill

60620_148965095280332_183696344_nInked Custom Apparel is proud to feature Franky Kokosza as our very first “featured artist.” We have known Franky for years and have been very impressed with the diversity of his work. Franky is a skilled machinist, talented musician and visual artist.

Franky entered the art world with his paintings of iconic visual images of the 1950′s using an urban tag art style with a twist. We own several of his custom pieces of artwork that adorn the walls of our house.

Currently Franky lives in Nashville, TN where he continues to pull from his machining skills and icons of the 1950′s to create custom jewelry milled from recycled vinyl records. He brands his jewelry as The Wreckerd Mill.
