Kimble taps new partner

Cincinnati, OH — Folk artist Warren Kimble has found a new partner to produce a new line of flags, doormats and home decorative accessories featuring his artwork.

New Creative Enterprises (NCE) will replace the former licensee Toland to source and distribute its products as of February, said Linda Balogh, president of Courtney Davis, Kimble's licensing agent.

"We were looking for a partner with a broader product mix and distribution," Balogh explained. "Toland focuses more on the gift industry. NCE works with the key accounts, and [Kimble] is popular now with those same key accounts."

NCE will produce heat-sublimated flags and doormats, the latter in both indoor comfort form and indoor/outdoor rubber back constructions. Price point on doormats will be $20.
