Crayola tile collections to be showcased at Coverings

The Crayola Glass Tile Collection will be showcased at Coverings 2013 with more shapes, colors and revenue-building opportunities.

The new Crayola Recycled Collection consists of 36 solid colors in two finishes and nine special blends. Approved for both floor and wall use in commercial as well as residential applications, this new series is produced using SCS-certified, 99% recycled glass, which makes all products ideal for any LEED project.  These designs will be exhibited at Coverings along with the original Crayola Glass Tile Collection, which debuted last year, that includes 42 solid colors, 18 blends and six special shaped (puzzle) mosaics.

Miami-based Surfaces, one of the nation’s premier producers and suppliers of glass tile, is working in conjunction with Crayola to bring the colorful, all-American glass tile range to the exposition. Crayola, based in Easton, Pa., is known for its iconic art tools that inspire kids’ creative expression and has 99% name recognition in U.S. consumer households.

“Crayola is a wonderful, well-respected American brand-name,” stated Paul J. Young, CEO of Surfaces. “It’s a name associated with beautiful colors, creativity… and of course, with children. When one associates the word ‘kids’ with ‘creative colors,’ it’s a safe bet that the word ‘Crayola’ will pop up as well. And, we’re taking this “green” collection to a new level by offering a myriad of unique, business-building opportunities for progressive tile marketers across the country.”

“Our partnership with Surfaces allows us to bring Crayola colors into homes in a unique way by bringing fun and creativity to kids’ spaces,” said Crayola vice president of licensing Warren Schorr.  “The colors are vibrant and the shapes are playful and fun.”

The Crayola Glass Tile Collection colors reflect the brilliant hues that characterize Crayola crayons. They include Fire Engine Red, Taxi Cab Yellow, Deep Sea Blue, North Pole White and more. The entire series is stocked in the US, ready for timely distribution.The new Crayola Glass Tile Collection may be seen at Coverings 2013 at exhibit # 5214, April 29th to May 2nd, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
