Los Angeles–In an industry dominated by majority-owned companies and influences, Images of Culture (IOC), a new stationery marketing company, launches today to deliver quality school supply products with uplifting, positive graphics and messages for African-American school-aged youth.


The company was created by 10-year marketing veteran and African-American entrepreneur Pamela A. Richardson out of a desire and passion to fill the void and provide Black youth with in-school materials that positively reflect them in an inspirational, hip and fun way. “We are committed to responsibly delivering products that encourage and promote individualism, creativity, self-esteem and self-confidence among young boys and girls,” said Richardson.


The first product on the market is a line of one-subject notebooks available in six vibrant designs with cover art depicting African-American cultural experiences such as family, sports and social activities. Each notebook is made with high quality materials that are durable and eco-friendly.


Images of Culture’s cutting-edge designs and beautiful craftsmanship are not only trendsetters among Black stationery companies, but in the industry as a whole. The company plans to expand to include additional school supply products such as folders, binders and memo pads.


Available direct at, Images of Culture’s products are for individuals and businesses, as well as not-for-profit partners and associations. For more information on IOC, its products or how to become a partner, visit


Images of Culture was born out of a desire to instill self-confidence and self-appreciation in young children of color. The introductory, one-of-a-kind educational product line is a series of spiral-bound notebooks that feature athletically-inspired graphics that are colorful, motivational and beneficial for children. Unlike other educational supply products that utilize cartoons and mascots, Images of Culture integrates realistic and identifiable images that inspire children of color to develop healthy personal and family identities.
