Q. 'In what year did you start your business? Tell us about your company history?
A. Started in 1947 by Jack Postlethwaite. With the help of his wife, Wilma Postlethwaite, who focused mainly on the accounting side of the business, Posty set out to grow the new company. He continued to design cards for BMA, and began calling on other insurance companies. He soon had Kansas City Life and Jefferson Standard Life as clients as well.
