In June 2018, longtime Overstreet Advisor and advertiser Bill Cole celebrates the 45th anniversary of his company, Bill Cole Enterprises. As preservation professionals, the company sells a variety of materials to house and protect collectibles, including acid-free boards and boxes, display frames, Mylar sleeves, and other products.

In a retrospective posted on the company website, Cole shared how his appreciation for comics was revived in 1973 and led him to start manufacturing his own protective material. The full story on Cole’s journey and the company’s growth can be read at bcemylar.com.

All of us at Gemstone Publishing would like to congratulate Bill Cole Enterprises on the 45th anniversary!
