The problem I see with depositing flasks etc yielding guild rep is one of repeatability... i.e. I deposit 20 Flasks of Insanely Boosted Strength in the guild bank and get 250 rep. I log over to a different toon and withdraw those same 20 flasks (so as not to get a penalty for withdrawl) and then mail them back to the original toon, who deposits them again for another 250. Lather, rinse, repeat = near instant exalted all from 20 flasks. Perhaps there would need to be a weekly quest tied to a players professions. But that would make it difficult for BS, LW, Tailoring and maybe one or two others imo. And even then, you still have the problem of "deposit for rep -> Withdrawl -> Sell on AH = no real benefit for the guild".

I wanted to point out the same thing, thanks! What might work would be an overall cooldown on the rep. Say, you get to deposit one item or stack for rep once a day, or at a different interval. After you did that once per day, you of course can still deposit other stuff, but you wouldnt gain rep until the next day. If you can't be online every day, make it possible to deposit up to 7 items once per week. Imagine you get... I dunno, 250 rep for it. You can earn up to 1750 guild rep, and you can't just do the deposit-withdraw rinse n repeat thing within 20 min.

Maybe the "rep for deposit" function should be turn-in quests given by the guild bank. What is deposited disappears, but perhaps the turn-ins work towards eventual guild-wide buffs when in raid groups or something like that. It'd be similar to AV turn-ins. This could address the problem of too much unused low-level stuff accumulating in the guild bank, too. And the guild rep gain could be made inversely proportional to the size of the guild since rep gain by members of tiny guilds may be much slower.
