Six Companies Recognized as Four-Time Winners
Press Release from Creating Keepsakes, January 29, 2002

Anaheim, California (January 29, 2002) - Creating Keepsakes magazine held its fourth annual 2002 Readers' Choice Awards, "Scrapbook Super Bowl," last night in conjunction with the 61st annual Hobby Industry Association (HIA) in Anaheim.

Creating Keepsakes' readers selected their favorite team players who were recognized at a "super bowl" event attended by approximately 300 representatives from 50 companies. Defending champions included six companies that have won titles in their categories each year since the inception of the Readers' Choice Awards in 1999. They include Creative Memories for adhesives, Canon for cameras, Eastman Kodak for film, EK Success for pens, Fiskars for scissors, and Lasting Impressions for Paper for their embossing stencils. Also honored were four strong contenders who have won their categories for the last three years, including: Creative Memories for direct sales, Keeping Memories Alive for mail order, 3L Corp. for photo corners, and Stampin' Up! for rubber stamps.

"We at Creating Keepsakes enjoy honoring the top players in the industry for their creative and innovative products," said Lisa Bearson, co-founder and founding editor. "Our readers are always on the lookout for quality products and each year they are eager to put their favorite players on the scoreboard."

Creating Keepsakes' readers nominated 451 products representing 170 companies for the 39 product categories. The votes were electronically tabulated by an independent company. Here are the results:
