Merch Central is the fulfillment + e-commerce child of Seen Merchandising & Ink Tank Merch. Our staff consists of team members from both locations. Together we have created a one stop shop for all of your merchandising, web store, and fulfillment wishes.
Seen Merchandising was founded in early 2009 by brothers RL and Micah Brooks in the Fairfax district of Kansas City, KS. With growing production demands, a bigger and more functional space was needed to support those demands. Seen Merchandising now operates in Shawnee, KS, just south of downtown Kansas City, MO. Seen Merchandising has worked with diverse clients, ranging from national touring bands to large corporations, promotional companies, popular TV shows, churches, schools, and nonprofit organizations.
Ink Tank was founded in 2007 in Omaha, NE as a subsidiary of Saddle Creek Records. It's purpose was to be an outlet for the label's artists that needed quality merchandising and online store fronts and fulfillment. Ink Tank was purchased in 2016 by Pat Oakes, the long time Production Manager of Ink Tank, and Kansas City's Seen Merchandising. When the opportunity arose for these two companies to work together, it was very apparent that a merger was a great option for all involved.
