(September 15, 2008) Two publications considered staples in the
African-American community for decades now have a line of apparel and
accessory merchandise named in their honor. Johnson Publishing Company,
Inc. (JPC), publishers of EBONY and JET magazines, recently announced
the official launch of branded products through Ebony-Jet Licensing.
"The African-American community has been extremely loyal and supportive
of our brands for many years," said Linda Johnson Rice, president and
CEO of JPC. "This product line further establishes the quality of the
EBONY and JET brands while introducing new generations to our legacy."
The EBONY and JET products, which are available online, range from
apparel for all sizes to home and office furnishings such as coffee
mugs and wall clocks. "JET Beauty of the Week," named for the popular
weekly swimsuit centerfold feature, appears on T-shirts, mouse pads,
jogging suits and several other items.
To commemorate the historic presidential election, a special line of
EBONY and JET Obama products were created. Framed artwork of classic
EBONY covers is also available.
