Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) August 09, 2013
BroadLit, a multimedia company dedicated to the imaginative reformulation of classic and contemporary romance, has added a new licensee to its roster – MYPLASH. Selected images from BroadLit’s expansive library of vintage images from nearly 100 years of True Love and True Romance magazines covers will be featured in a new line of branded MYPLASH Prepaid MasterCard designs. This latest licensing agreement adds to BroadLit’s growing list of licensees, which currently includes Andrews and Blaine, Art.com, Ephemera, and Rizzoli International Publications.
MYPLASH already produces a wide range of branded cards for properties including Gossip Girl, Paul Frank, Skelanimals, So So Happy, The Vampire Diaries, Warner Brothers, and more. “MYPLASH is the perfect licensee, because its products will beautifully showcase the classic and iconic images in our wholly-owned portfolio and introduce them to a new generation of fans,” said Chief Marketing Officer Barbara Weller.
Chief Publishing Officer Nancy Cushing-Jones stated, “We are delighted to partner with MYPLASH to launch a line of cards featuring our vintage images. These cards will provide cross-promotional support for not only our TruLOVE Collection books, but also for our other licensees producing a range of products including engagement calendars, jigsaw puzzles, posters and magnets.”
“In addition to the signing of our latest license with MYPLASH, an internationally recognized and respected company,” said CEO Cynthia Cleveland, “we are currently in discussions with a wide range of other potential licensees to produce items ranging from beauty products to greeting cards on behalf of BroadLit’s TruLove merchandising and licensing program.”
BroadLit is not limited to licensed merchandise. The company also publishes original romance novels and collected stories based on a century of love stories printed in issues of True Romance and True Love Magazines, which are available on major online bookseller sites and on TruLOVEstories.com. BroadLit’s first mobile game, Girlfriends Strike Back™, launched in October and was designed specifically by women for the huge worldwide market of female casual gamers. “Who hasn’t had a bad boyfriend at least once in their life? This game gives every angry girlfriend a chance for revenge – all in fun,” said Ms. Cleveland.
