Inkworks Named Non-Sports Card Vendor of the Year

Wins Diamond Gem Award for Eighth Straight Year

For the eighth consecutive year, Inkworks has been named the Non-Sports Card Vendor of the Year in the 15th annual Diamond Gem Awards from Diamond Comic Distributors. Inkworks has now won the award more times than all other non-sport trading card manufacturers combined. Additionally, Inkworks won the award for Non-Sports Card Product of the Year for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Women of Sunnydale.

"While all of Diamond's suppliers and their products are important facets of the overall comics specialty market," explained Diamond President & CEO Steve Geppi, "the Gems offer our customers the chance to honor those that have been especially beneficial in helping their businesses prosper during the past year. They are the crème de le crème of what our industry has to offer."

Gem Award nominees were selected by a panel of Diamond product specialists on the basis of their overall impact on the industry including their quality, creativity, and sales performance in 2004. Retailers were able to cast their votes using ballots contained with their February Previews Order Forms, Previews on Disk, Previews on Windows, and Previews Fax Order Forms, as well as via Diamond Online's Retailer Services Area.

"We are honored to be named Vendor of the Year by Diamond retailers for the eighth straight time and to have Buffy Women of Sunnydale named Product of the Year," said Allan Caplan, President of Inkworks. "We are excited about non-sport trading cards and proud to partner with all of the great retailers out there. We work hard to bring collectors the best licenses, the best products and the highest level of customer service in the business."

Inkworks is an entertainment trading card manufacturer based in Morrisville, North Carolina. Current licenses include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Alias, Lost, Robots, The X-Files, Smallville, Charmed, Family Guy, Serenity, and The Sopranos.
