About The Show

Creative Minds inspire Products at SURTEX

Suzanne Blanck, owner/designer of Blanckslate & New exhibitor in Art & Brand Licensing

Collaboration with buyers and licensees is a part of the business, but also makes it rewarding. “As the owner of Blanckslate, I am exhibiting at SURTEX because it is the best outlet to show new buyers our capabilities as a surface designer and illustrator…we are a brand that can be trusted to help our clients increase their sales and reach within their own demographics.
