You know those fun vintage photos of women (and men) with funny sayings? Well, they just might be from the archives of Kathy Alpert. She began PostMark Press as a stationery manufacturer and then decided to use the images more widely by licensing them for a variety of products. She, too, let me aim my camera at her at the SURTEX show. Watch and learn about her journey in the art licensing world.

Kathy was also interviewed and included in a video shot at the Ephemera Society’s Annual Conference this past March, which you can see below. An interesting peek into world of Ephermera.
