Posted By Molly Brewer

Blog Header Review

"Here, at The Plywood and Bubblegum Lab in Portland, ME, we like to take the time to test our products throughly. Unlike other labs we run our products through a gauntlet of tests. (How else would one know which palette knife is best for spreading butter or cutting cake?) Below you will find our latest review on Strathmore's hardbound toned sketchbook by our very own Molly B.

What's Happening Here - Princeton

Howard Kaufman- President Princeton Art  & Brush

 

 

 

Howard Kaufman

Howard began his career in the art supply industry more than forty years ago.  He started out selling rub on transfer lettering as the New York City sales representative for Chartpak.  After completing his Masters Degree in Marketing, he became a product manager for slide rules; dinosaurs would be an understatement.

 

Turn the clock forward a few decades and Howard was President of Grumbacher, managed 300 employees and spent his days in corporate meetings, preparing corporate budgets and living in the world of corporate politics.

 

In 1992, Howard decided to get off the corporate roll a coaster and start his own business, Princeton Art & Brush.  His philosophy was keep it simple.  He recalls going to the bank for a line of credit and the bank asked if he had ever written a business plan.  Howard took a post it note and wrote the words “business plan”

 

Until last year, Howard with only two part time employees ran the business from his basement, garages and to the dismay of his wife, the living room .  His post it note business plan worked.  Princeton Brushes are today in almost every art supply store in North America and almost 30 countries.  Princeton now is a 17,000 square foot warehouse, but still has only a hand full of employees.

Sensu Brush


Princeton's Sensu brush for tablets
and other capacitive devices.

 

 

Howard says it’s all about customer service and he should know.  He still picks every order and answers telephone calls, often on the first ring.  No voice mail recordings and definitely no corporate meetings.

 

Check out creativity in action on Princeton’s web ste:  www.princetonbrush.com   Catalyst products, SNAP, Sensu, a brush for capacitive devices like the i-pad and more.

 

And if you ever have a question about brushes, contact Howard at info@princetonbrush.com.  You are his customer and his passion is brushes.

August 2013 Featured Artist - Lynn Lieberman

Lynn Lieberman

Harlem, NY

 

Favorite A&C Item:

Shizen rag watercolor paper

Specialties:

Watercolor

 

While I enjoy working in all mediums, my first love is watercolor. Many of my paintings are of the beautiful old townhouses gracing the streets of Harlem, where I live.  They aren't all perfect.  This is not a movie set and it is the beauty of their age, the many layers of paint, a sign of housing many lives, that I find appealing.

 

I am inspired by the history of my surroundings and I'm drawn to paint the very places that once  were home to the masters of the Jazz age,  Minton's - the Lenox Lounge - St. Nick's Pub - The Apollo Theatre, as well as the wonderful shops and restaurants that are so popular today.
