About KOEHLER COMPANIES, INC.:
"We manufacture a decorative plaque line that utilizes verse and art. We are not a greeting card company. We combine art and message to create a product that a consumer will like enough to want to look at for a year or longer."
KEY TO THIS MARKET: "Topics that works best includes: golf, fishing, pets, and other passions; verse that speaks to women, sisters, mom, family; words to inspire without getting preachy; humorous verse for men. See website for examples of our work."
65% of material freelance written.
Receives 100 submissions/year.
Bought 25 ideas/samples last year.
Responds in 1 month.
Pays on acceptance.
"We pay $125/selected verse and limit the use to our products so that writers may resell their work for other uses."
OTHER PRODUCT LINES: Decorative wall plaques.
TIPS: "We sell wholesale to the retail market and the mail order catalog industry as well. Lengthy verse is sometimes challenging. Usually under 6 lines is best. We prefer to have work submitted by e-mail or mail."
