KC Creations, Inc. crafts a line of animal themed signs, key holders and sculptures, which it produces in the USA. The potential for sales at flea markets and swap meets is high, as the products contain original artwork and make great gift items, yet are affordably priced. “All our products make great gifts because everybody loves their pets,” notes Ken Cleveland, owner.
The company recently introduced novelty color crossing signs. Made of durable sun and weather resistant polyethylene plastic, these beautifully crafted signs are 10.5 by 8 inches. “People enjoy placing these fun and unique pieces on doors and fences, and in a recreation area or child’s room,” Cleveland points out. KC Creations presently offers the signs in 40 dog, cat and wildlife designs, and will expand the line to 80 animals by 2014. Wholesale is $3.95 and retail is $8 to $10.
Wooden key/leash holders debut in November
Another unique product KC Creations is introducing in November is a wooden key/leash holder. It is 4.5 by 7 inches, and has three one-inch pegs on the front along with a keyhole slot in the back for easy hanging. The product will be available in a selection of 200 dog, cat and wildlife images. The company will name drop or print sayings such as “I love my parrot,” or “A happy loving pit bull lives here” at no extra charge. Wholesale is $6.50 and retail is generally $12.99.
KC Creations also produces a popular line of black and yellow “On Board,” “Protected By,” and “Xing” signs. Made of durable polyethylene, the On Board and Protected By signs are 4 by 4 inches and have a suction cup on the back for easy mounting. The On Board signs are typically displayed in car windows and the Protected By signs are popular in homes and apartments. More than 100 breeds are available in each sign. The Xing signs are 11 by 11 inches, and KC Creations produces them in over 100 dog breeds and another 100 non-dog designs, including farm animals, wildlife, people and sports.
Hand-cast and hand painted animal figurines
Among the company’s other best sellers are dog, cat and wildlife sculptured figurine gifts, hand-cast from DryStone plaster and hand painted. They are available in about 60 dog breeds and a dozen cat designs. “Our Pet Recue Stickers are another great product that is an easy sell to pet lovers,” Cleveland adds. They retail for as low as $3.95 each. The weather resistant stickers adhere to outside entry doors and windows, informing rescue personnel that a pet is inside the building. “They give pet owners peace of mind in the event of a fire,” Cleveland states.
There is no minimum order, and processing time is around ten days. Display spinner racks are available. To see KC Creations’ new wooden holders as well as its other animal themed products, visit the company at the Smoky Mountain Gift Show in Gatlinburg, TN, November 5-8, at booth #4410.
