i-Create International, Inc. has been licensing and distributing its original, fashionable, colorful and fun content since January 1996 (pre-launched in late 1995). Our licensed content/assets have been on hundreds of category products, especially apparel in multiple mid, mass, value, upper and specialty retailers across the US. Our spin-off programs from partners have showcased our art on many categories across Retail/Movies/TV (below).
i-Create has one of the Largest Library of (100% Owned & Copyrighted) Digital Assets, and one of the only Diversified Novelty/Lifestyle/Fashion Licensed Brand that is fully prepared and formatted for both POD/DTG/DTC Retail and Shareable Media!
Formatting and composing styles for POD is a science besides applying great talent. We have 25 years in this industry. You need to know what works with what type of variant and the template layout (and safe zone) of the item itself. This is one of our specialties as a Licensed Brand that is ready for POD.
Our Brand i-Create is currently licensed and found at Hot Topic, Box Lunch and Zedge Premium Mobile Marketplace. i-Create can also be found on thousands of items located on Amazon. That's currently over 12,000 i-Create Licensed SKUs combined, selling today with over 15,000+ SKUs planned by the end of 2020 and going into 2021.

In 1996, we started out as clipart and stock art creators/owner/licensors. We also were one the first to have animated GIF characters online, character based craft web site portals, and more. We landed contracts with Corel, RomTech, eGames, Art Today, Hemera, Graphic Corp, Nova Development, IMSI, and more. We ended up then having an acquisition by Corel Corporation with certain assets they licensed exclusively during the end of their clipart /stockart licensing term.
This past art above also has been a part of licensing, sub-licensing and cameos in: Crayola Products, Tropicana OJ Containers, Sherwood Brands Easter Baskets, CarbSense, KidZup CDs, Barron’s Books, Nutra Prep, Thompson Cigars Labels, Micro Mags, Kalan Patches, FAF Storage, Corel Corporation Clipart, Hemera Clipart, Graphic Corp Clipart, Nova Development & RomTech Software Clipart Products (Independently Developed the full line (4 Volumes) of award winning: stick figure "Not Just Another Clipart" series by RomTech), IMSI Software Clipart and in Movies such as Daddy Day Care (the Sun Smile on the Van and Kiddy Art on Flyers/Banners), Kicking and Screaming Book, Drowning Mona (Landscaping Tees Lawnmower) and TV shows (props/signage) such like iCarly and Ned’s Declassified, also in children's program like Baby Genius Videos...and Much More!
Mobile: A few years later, our company owned-content-and-assets were distributed on 25+ Top Tier 1 & 2 International Carrier Decks (such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Virgin, Rogers, T-Mobile, etc), Paid Decks, Content Subscription Apps and Stand-Alone iPhone Apps. In 2004, we were one of the first to distribute ASCII and Emojis (we called Emojis Icons back then). Before the iPhone debut, we registered two copyrighted collections in 2006 and 2007 housing loads of assets titled: i-Create Mobile 2006 Wallpaper Collection and i-Create Mobile 2007 Wallpaper Collection (these collections had what we call the first emojis to be copyrighted, such like the smiley with sunglasses, the devil emoji, the dead emoii (Xs for Eyes), etc. We continued through 2014 to aggregate and distribute thousands of wallpapers around the globe on international carrier decks, along with #1 sellers on AT&T (some sold upwards 200,000 units in one month). We also were part of many stand-alone iPhone apps and games after 2008. We then started distributing stickers. Going back to 1996, we registered and copyrighted an ASCII art collection titled "E-mail O'Glyphics" (remember, there was no character-texting back then). In retrospect, we believe we predicted the future of fun sharing assets in this industry for sure.
Apparel & Accessories: With the popularity of our licensed mobile assets, we landed an apparel (and other goods) licensing program Under Private Label Distributors in 2007 throughout 2017 - Brick and Mortar Retailers include: Macy's, JCP Department Store & JCP Outlet, Paradies Shops, Sears, Kohl’s, Dillards, Sharpes, Nexcom, Burlington, Winners, Meijer’s, Kmart, Ross, DD’s, Stage, Bealls, Peebles, Dollar General, Gabriel Brothers, Bob’s Stores, Forman Mills, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Vanity Fair, Target, AAFES, Gordmans, Belk, Bermo, Rue 21, Zulily, Fred Meyer and many more. Some of our Best Selling Tee Styles have independently sold over $1M retail per SKU in both the short and long term. We had many best sellers.
Going into the ...NOW...
In 2017, we decided to go fully sustainable, digital and re-evaluated the 100% ownership to our brand, asset library and derivatives to go further into the future of eCommerce. In mid 2019, we restructured our Brand, Licensing Business Model and Program to be fully digital. Hot Topic and Box Lunch joined up as our first retail licensees and partners. Our current 10,000+ assets/derivatives are protected under multiple IP registrations (below).
