Digiwrap Shares Shark Tank and Business Experience at Downers Grove North

When Downers Grove North called to ask if Charlie Williams, one of Digiwrap’s founders and an alum of the school, would come speak to students in the Entrepreneurship Course last May, he was more than happy to oblige—it was sure to be a far less intense experience than when he and co-founder Brad Boskovic swam with ABC’s sharks on a December episode of Shark Tank last year. Charlie was happy to return to his alma mater and share about the whirlwind experience.

When Williams attended school at North, he had no idea business would be in his future. Students found his speech totally inspiring and were excited to receive business advice from Williams and gain insight into his journey of appearing on Shark Tank.

“This was an incredible opportunity for North students to learn from a successful young entrepreneur. While students loved hearing about Charlie’s experience on Shark Tank, this was an opportunity for students to make a connection with an entrepreneur who was walking the same hallways only a few years earlier,” said Entrepreneurship teacher, Drew Himes.

Awesome Illustration of Our Shark Tank Appearance: Interview with the Artist

We were so excited to appear on Shark Tank in December, where we made a successful deal with Kevin O’Leary. A few weeks after the appearance, we were surprised and delighted to see illustrator Gerri Findley’s drawing of our appearance. What an excellent way for us to remember our time in the tank!

We tracked down Gerri Findley to send her some tissue paper with a repeat pattern of her illustration and to learn more about what inspired her to take the time to create this incredible illustration.

We noticed during the search that she has drawn several of the people who have appeared on the show. So we asked, why Shark Tank?

“A few shows into Season 7 (2015-2016), a credit card protection named Signal Vault was in the tank and the sharks were circling. Lori Greiner confidently grabbed her pen and quickly scribbled $1,000,000,” remembered Gerri. “At that memorable moment I reached for my markers to quickly capture and post. I had been sketching pop culture, award shows, music people, and posting on Instagram.”

“A ❤️ appeared from @ODangHummus founder, Jesse, who would enter the tank the following week. After Jesse’s fantastic food pitch with outstretched arms he asked, ‘Who wants to snack!?!’ I was hooked again to capture that moment, and so began my season of Shark Tank sketching.”

Since then she has been drawing people who appear in the tank, and we are so happy to have been featured.

We asked what inspires her to draw. “People fascinate me and I love to sketch them,” said Findley. “And I add a smile. And a headline. I sketch what I see. A moment that tells a story. They’re quick sketches, and they capture a memorable moment or event.”

You can follow Gerri’s work on Instagram @gerrifindley, where she posts her incredible work. “I aim to delight,” said Findley. “The world needs more delight.”

Our Exciting, Successful Open Casting Call for Shark Tank

This year we had the exciting experience of auditioning to be on Shark Tank. So many people who know are very curious about how we got on the show. Here’s our story of our successful open casting call!

For various reasons which you can read here, we didn’t make the final decision to go to the Open Casting Call until the night prior. We hatched a plan over the phone and our crazy journey began. We wanted to showcase our unique custom printed tissue paper as much as possible, so we actually printed our application on our tissue paper. When we handed it in on the tissue paper, the woman accepting the applications was baffled. It was fun to tell her that this was our product.

We were so excited to show the features we love most about Digiwrap—our tissue paper is custom printed in high quality, with bright and accurate colors, and the process is incredibly fast. Also, you can print just one sheet if you want.

So here is what we did to highlight those features:

Once we received our wristband, we took a picture in front of the building wearing the wristband.

Then we rushed to the office and designed a tissue paper using that photo.


We then printed the tissue paper and brought it with to deliver our one-minute pitch just a few hours later. Regular paper version and tissue paper version, handed it to them and they asked why it was on tissue paper. Give the one-minute pitch.

In the end, they must have been impressed because that’s where our chaotic journey into the Shark Tank began! Tune in to ABC on Friday, December 9 at 8pm Central Time to see the results!
