We work with companies worldwide to develop successful, highly targeted retail programs featuring art-based products. We also help artists to licensing and marketing their artwork, by maximizing exposure of their work to decision-makers in the licensing world.

We also make our award-winning and inspirational artwork available to the public through our affiliate relationships. High quality products such as designer checks, address labels and art posters are available for purchase online.

History and Background
In 1977, family-owned and operated Pemberton & Oakes, Ltd. opened for business, working with talented artists to develop imagery for the collectibles and giftware industry. We soon developed a reputation for delivering quality imagery with broad appeal, including works of world-renowned childhood artist Donald Zolan.

Our success was gained through recognizing and developing effective licensed imagery that “delivers the message” and increases sales for our partner licensees. Our artwork features childhood, nature, motivational and inspirational themes. Our focus has evolved from manufacturing, marketing and selling products via direct-mail, to licensing high-performance imagery to manufacturers and publishers.

We also own copyrights to 112 paintings of early childhood by Donald Zolan. Through 1994 we produced fine collectible products such as plates, lithographs and figurines, helping Zolan become one of America’s best-known painters of early childhood.

Our company has a unique perspective, having both “licensed out” our artwork and produced and marketed products based on the artwork we own. Today, Pemberton & Oakes continues to enjoy licensing relationships with companies producing checks, stationary, giftware and collectibles, and many other items.

Our Mission
Pemberton & Oakes' commitment to quality is demonstrated by the artwork we license as well as in the relationships we have developed in over 30 years of operation. Our goal is to expand upon this reputation, by providing the following services:
