Summer is Almost Here!


Retail sales for April 2016 showed an increase of 1.3% over March and 3% over April 2015. The big retail sector winners for the month were Building Materials and Garden posting a 8.2% increase and Sporting Goods and Hobby increasing 4.2% over April 2015. Shares of Macy’s, Gap, Nordstrom, Kohls and JC Penney’s all tanked due to dismal earnings and a consumer shift to on-line sales. Amazon sales showed an increased 2.1% in April and is currently trading at a all time high. The shift to online purchasing is not going to change and the traditional way of doing business through brick and mortar stores continues to evaporate. These retailers will have to figure out how to be stronger in this space to survive.
Licensees on the Move:

Springs Creative
will launch several of our illustrations on fabric in July. There are a total of six fabric designs in the collection that will be sold through JoAnne’s Fabrics.


We are very pleased with their product execution by Springs Creative and retail placement.  

Curtis News:

Curtis has been nominated by Lima [Licensing Industry Merchandiser’s  Association] for best licensed promotion for 2015. This nomination came as a result of  our program with Butterball Turkeys for the Thanksgiving holiday 2015, which feature “Freedom from Want” on 3 million turkeys and generated $75 million dollars at retail.


This national promotion was featured in thousands of retail grocers around the country as well as a online offering through our licensee Art.com. We are pleased with the nomination and recognition. We will be competing against Coke, Universal Studios, Marvel and Star Wars to name a few…Wish us luck!
We hope to see many of you next month at the Licensing Show. If you have not heard from us, please give us a call to schedule a appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon.
