Zazzle Store (or finally sanity has arrived in Lynn Johnston merchandising)

http://www.fborfw.com/news/new-two-fborfw-shops-serve/

We just launched a brand-new Zazzle store, to bring you new shopping options! Now you can find For Better or For Worse characters on fine, affordable housewares and clothing items.

We’ve also created some products featuring Lynn’s latest artwork — check out the Lynn Johnston Productions collection to see her funny fish, animal and Farley prints.


It has finally happened!! Katie has gained control over the merchandising part of Lynn's work and no longer will they suffer with anatomically-correct Ned Tanner dolls and Farley golf club covers and whatever bizarre marketing nonsense came out of Lynn's fevered brain, that she had to have absolutely creative control over. This looks more like the merchandising that For Better or For Worse always should have had all along. There's binders, iPhone covers, paper plates, flip flops, hats, watches, t-shirts with slogans! It looks normal and regular as if someone actually wanted to make money.

Hallelujah! I had wondered how long it would take for Katie finally to convince Lynn that she could make the same money the Schulz family and Jim Davis have been raking in for years, if she would only let professionals into her business. Hooray for Katie!
