"Year for Priests"
Coloring Contest

AT LONG LAST, we are pleased to announce the return of our ever popular Illuminated Ink Coloring Contests!

In honor of our beloved Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, our first contest this year celebrates the life and ministry of St. John Vianney, Patron Saint of All Priests. Because we are all called to take part in the 'Year of the Priest', we have taken this opportunity to change our rules a bit, so that more people will have a chance to participate.

This contest will end on May 19, 2010, and the winners will receive an Illuminated Ink Gift Certificate, to be redeemed for the products of their choice... complete with free shipping!

Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)

The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) has caused considerable challenges for manufacturers and retailers who produce and sell products meant for children age 12 and under.

We have reviewed the act as it was written, consulted with numerous knowledgeable individuals, and made sure that our products conform to the new regulations as they currently stand.

Please rest assured, all our products for children are lead and thalate FREE, and meet CPSIA standards!

NEWS from
Illuminated Ink!

Over the past year, we have made many changes to our business... from eliminating the vast majority of our travels, to adding many, MANY new products which will be available in the coming months, to renovating our barn and turning it into a much-needed, dedicated business space.

Your support has allowed our products to reach out to a far greater audience than we ever imagined. At last count, over 200 stores around the world have chosen to carry our products because their customers requested them... including stores in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mauritius, Mexico, Trinidad and the USA.

Thank you for your support and encouragement for our business over the past 17 years. We could not do what we do, without YOU!

Great Ideas from our Customers!

"I purchased the Precious Mary Paper doll set for my 11 year old. I was a little concerned that she was getting close to the age where paper dolls had lost their interest. She spent several hours and I helped her cut some out; they are so lovely! But the highlight came when she surprised me with lunch last week. She had set the table and used Our Lady of the Kitchen as the centerpiece. Thanks for making such inspiring products!"
