Collage Press Stops Manufacturing Products

Providing a sneak look at ¬†some CHA Winter 2011 buzz, Collage Press has announced that the company is stopping manufacturing and distributing its own products. Instead, the company’s owner will produce designs through the renamed Collage Press Studio that will be licensed for production by others.

The decision was attributed on the company’s blog to the owner’s desire to spend more time with her two (soon to be three) young children.

The first Collage Press Studio collection, called Hometown Summer, will be produced by Pink Paislee and will debut at CHA Winter 2o11. This won’t be Pink Paislee’s first venture into licensed collections – the company debuted a very successful licensed collection from House of 3 at CHA Summer 2010.

To clear out their inventory, Collage Press has been offering their products to wholesale customers at a 30% discount via their website.

    Wow, I wonder what this change will actually mean? Less collections?

      How many collections they can produce will depend basically on how many collections they can sell to other companies to produce. That is what this kind of licensing is about. They no longer get to control whether their stuff is produced or not…they are dependent now on someone saying “yes” to producing a collection.
