More Artform Industries

Formerly the vacuum forming division of Star Band, purchased by Harold Bereson during their liquidation in September 1976, Artform Industries continued production of many of Star Band’s designs as well as adding their own unique designs. To mitigate financial risk, the owner of Artform Industries would strike a distribution deal with Empire. Empire would guarantee minimum order sizes and early payment, in return for exclusive distribution rights. This deal was presumed to last one to two years, but the exact duration is unclear. Artform Industries products can be seen in at least the 1978 Judith Novelty Sales catalogs. Empire would later distribute vacuum formed products imported from overseas whilst Artform Industries would strike a new exclusivity deal with Grand Award.

Originally produced entirely in the United States, Artform Industries would later begin importing smaller vacuum formed products to compete with the influx of other imported goods. Artform Industries would continue to manufacturer their larger holiday products in the United States until 1995, when they exited the holiday products business completely, instead focusing on plastic packaging until their 2001 closure.
