Rockland, Maine, June 15, 2015 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Karen Talbot Art announced an August delivery date for the first products in her new line of quality, affordable glassware designed with anglers in mind: the Angler’s Pint and Classic Fly Jigger. Both products merge everyday functionality and price with the award-winning art of artist and angler Karen Talbot. The Angler’s Pint and Classic Fly Jigger were launched with the support of a crowd-funding campaign that reached its fundraising goal in four days, proving both the concept and the price-point appeal to the target audience.
“While my hand-painted glassware sells well,” says Talbot, “the price-point limits the audience. The goal with the Angler’s Pints and Classic Fly Jiggers is to reproduce my artwork on quality glassware at an affordable price. I’m thrilled with the response, and I look forward to expanding the line soon.”
Quality and Affordable
The Angler’s Pint is a stylish and durable 21.5-ounce glass featuring a full-color scientific illustration of a fish. At the rim is a fly rod above a British crown and American flag, whimsically boasting the superiority of an Angler’s Pint (636 ml) over both a British pint (568 ml) and an American pint (473 ml). The first Angler’s Pint features a brook trout. A Striped Bass Angler’s Pint is in the planning stages. Suggested retail price is $10 per Angler’s Pint. Pre-orders are available at www.AnglersPint.com.
The Classic Fly Jigger is a generous 3-ounce jigger featuring a fishing fly and the fly’s name. The first Classic Fly Jigger features a Grey Ghost Fly. Suggested retail price is $6. Pre-orders are available at www.AnglersPint.com.
These new glassware products are designed for everyday use and are dishwasher-safe. Wholesale pricing is available to fly fishing shops, lodges, restaurants, cafes, bars, or specialty retailers that sell distinctive home goods.
