Founded in 1959, Insta Graphic Systems was purchased in 1969 by Herbert A. Wells, a former chemist for the product that is now known as Elmer’s Glue. Wells then contributed to the development of the first plastisol heat transfer that offered easy application and a soft to the touch feel, which were features not previously available with heat transfer. The company’s growth rose dramatically in the early 1970s when the decorated T-shirt market boomed. Taking advantage of this, the company licensed some of the most popular cartoon characters at that time, such as Tom & Jerry, Woody Woodpecker, and The Wizard of Oz. The company’s popularity was further helped by the success of its international license for ET. Because of its high quality and innovative heat transfers, the popularity of the company and its products increased significantly throughout the world. Currently, Herbert Wells’ daughter, Janet Wells is the President of Insta Graphic Systems. She started working for Insta Graphic Systems after graduating from UCLA. Being fluent in various languages, she helped translate correspondence from other countries and she contributed to the company’s expansion in the global market. She had contributed significantly to the company’s exponential growth in the international market with the company now selling to more than 125 countries.
