September 22, 2011

Indianapolis-based St Regis Crystal (asi/84592) has acquired Toronto-based supplier Waterleaf Studios (asi/95418), the companies have announced. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. “This acquisition presents tremendous opportunities for both companies,” said Richard Firkser, president & CEO of St Regis Crystal. “Waterleaf Studios has spent 28 successful years developing its creative, innovative and technical skills. We look forward to growing this fantastic line.”

Founded in 1983, Waterleaf specializes in cast paper plaques, custom framing, certificate programs, corporate artwork and stained glass. According to the terms of the purchase agreement, all Waterleaf manufacturing and shipping will be relocated to the St Regis Canadian facility in Markham, Ontario.

Making You Money: What ASI is all about.

Promotional products, also known as ad specialties, make up a $20.5 billion dollar industry and are used by virtually every business in America. Why? Items like mugs, pens and t-shirts are memorable and provide a better cost per impression for advertisers than almost every major marketing effort like prime time TV, magazines and radio.

With so many businesses buying ad specialties there is a huge opportunity for professionals looking to make great money running a promotional products distributorship. It’s easy and inexpensive to get started and you can work from home.
