Wizard Wizard, Ultra PRO Announce Partnership
Agreement Positions Ultra PRO As Offering ‘Official Collecting Supplies of Wizard World’
Wizard World, Inc. (“Wizard World”) and Ultra PRO International LLC (“Ultra PRO”) have entered into a partnership whereby Ultra PRO will offer the “Official Collecting Supplies of Wizard World,” consisting of premium storage and collecting accessories for comic books, artworks and collectible prints. Wizard World is the leading producer of pop culture and comic conventions, bringing fans and collectors up close and personal with the sci-fi and fantasy worlds they love. From entry-level to seasoned collectors, Wizard World events offer show goers an opportunity to complete their high-value collection and to obtain unique autographs live from their favorite artists, actors and actresses.
“We’re very excited for this partnership as Wizard World is the premier show for fans of pop culture and geekdom. Wizard World events are packed with activities, whether it’s buying and selling collections, getting that autograph from that special someone, grading your prized collectibles or just being star-struck. Having the right supplies can create a seamless experience for collectors and con-goers to focus on what the show is really all about – fun and excitement,” comments Frank Whittaker, Director of Business Development at Ultra PRO.
Ultra PRO currently offers a wide variety of storage and display accessories for sports, comics and gaming collectibles. Ultra PRO plans to launch its initial Wizard World product line this year with comic supplies designed specifically for high-end collectors, as well as carriers for lithographs and artwork prints. This new line will be available at Wizard World’s on-site retail stores and through Ultra PRO distributors worldwide.
Ultra PRO has been producing high quality supplies for as long as Wizard World has been running events. With the number of artists, celebrities, collectors and fans attending our events, it made perfect sense to partner with Ultra Pro to give the fans the best products to protect and safeguard their items. We are excited to announce three never-before-seen products that should make a big impact at conventions across the country and worldwide.
