My name is Larry Levine President of Artbrands llc
I have been wanting to do this for quite some time. I love to write and I love to talk to customers or potential customers. This is a crazy, fun business that we are in. As I have said often We are not curing cancer.
The heat transfer business is constantly changing and I have practically seen it all. My Dad was in this business way back in the 1970s and was a pioneer in heat transfers. That is how and why I ended up in Columbus Ohio. I went to Ohio State became a life long Buckeye fan. One of my sons ( I have 5 kids) even was a band member ( The best damn band in the land OSU marching band).
I have been in Columbus Ohio now for many years even though we don’t have mountains, an ocean it is a very cool, dynamic , growing city and I love it.
Now on to business. Let me tell you my background. I have been a stand up comedian, door to door sales person, talk show host ,writer, and a businessman.
I have been lucky enough in my life to have met very interesting people from Alexander Haig , Jay Leno, to most of todays celebrities. It is just part of our business. I am not jaded , I am a fan and I still look in awe at people who have accomplished much and are in the public eye.
I love to create products, market , promote . It is kind of like the feeling before a big game the excitement, the thrill , the letdown and the exhilaration of having a successful product . I have had both believe me. If I have had any success in my life it is because I have I have not been afraid to fail. Yup I have failed alot but failure leads to successes and as long as we learn from our mistakes ( you have to be bold enough to make them) we will grow and learn and prosper.
This blog is here for many reasons. I want to help those who are starting out, in our business. I completely understand the small business mentality . I have been there and I have done that. I love to share ideas and hopefully help friends and customers prosper in the heat applied transfer business.
Oh, and I want you to use our products. That is the purpose of this. At least for now we are a capitalist Country and we all want to make money. Ok, I slipped ( lets not get political ) so we won’t go there in this blog .
Please ask any question that you need to ask. If it is technical I will get my “experts” at Artbrands to help . If it is about licensing, copyrignt and trademark I have a vast knowledge of it. I also am smart enough to admit when I don’t know something ( which is often ) .
Thanks for reading this and lets have fun and make money.
