Horsham, PA (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
Kathy Davis, one of America’s leading social expressions designers, experienced substantial business growth last year, with sales of licensed goods exceeding $100 million at retail. Kathy’s ability to connect with consumers through her signature painting and verse has prompted a wave of new licensing deals and products. As a result, the company is making a “Splash” (the name of her newest collection) across multiple lifestyle categories.
“Over the last year, the Kathy Davis Studio success and capability generated tremendous momentum,” says Alex Meisel, licensing agent for Kathy Davis Studios. “Kathy’s new collections have attracted some of the leading providers in the gift, stationery, baby, home décor, publishing and party markets to join American Greetings and our other top tier licensed partners in bringing exciting new products to serve multiple retailers in a diverse market.”
New collections as well as replenishment programs from industry leaders embrace Kathy’s signature florals and inspiring messages. Demdaco, Madison Park Group, C.R. Gibson, Creative Converting, Prestige Arts, Creative Bath, Checks in the Mail, Westminster Fibers, Whitmor and others have new Kathy Davis lines. American Greetings continues to generate significant Kathy Davis card sales through everyday and seasonal programs.
In addition, Sourcebooks, a leading gift book publisher, will introduce in May, 2014, Kathy’s Love Blooms in a Mother’s Heart: A Celebration of Motherhood, the second in a multi book series. This latest book follows Sourcebooks’ publication of Kathy’s Simple Secrets, 7 Principles to Inspire Success, which will also feature companion products in stationery, gifts and fashion accessories.
Kathy Davis Studios launches new collections in a return to the Surtex Show (May 18-20, 2014 in New York at the Javits Center; Booth # 207-209) and will actively participate with licensed partners at industry events throughout the year.
“We are very pleased with the partnerships we have on board as we move into an exciting year ahead,” said Peter Walts, President of Kathy Davis Studios. “As we continue to build the Kathy Davis brand in the home, fashion and social expression market, we are excited to work with and support these great companies and partners in our success.”
