FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Catalyst Game Labs and Publisher Services Inc. (PSI) are pleased to announce they’ve entered into a new agreement. Starting in June, PSI will be the exclusive sales and fulfillment agent for Catalyst Game Labs.
“While we’ll miss the great people we’ve worked with at Alliance—Gabe, Danny, Tom and others—we’re excited to be working with PSI more closely,” said Randall N. Bills, Managing Developer for Catalyst Game Labs. “We’ve had a long partnership with PSI already. They’ve handled our sales into the large chain bookstores for years and in early 2009 they took over all foreign fulfillment. It made sense to move all of our sales and fulfillment under a single company. We’re confident this will enable us to serve our game communities better than ever.”
Publisher Services Inc. (PSI) is a leading North American sales and fulfillment service organization enabling greater sales for small to medium-sized publishers to mass market, book trade, and specialty retail channels. PSI objectives are to work with their publishing partners to optimize their presence in the broad marketplace and offer the highest quality products to PSI retail customers.
As a full-service, “turn-key” sales and fulfillment operation, PSI works as a sales force, in-channel marketing consultant, warehouse facility, shipper, and collections agent… allowing publishers to focus mainly on product creation.
Dean Burnham, President of PSI, said, “PSI is excited to expand our relationship with Catalyst Game Labs and to build on the success they’ve already had with their product lines. While this change allows PSI and Catalyst to work closely on all sales fronts, it won’t change the way in which the retail markets are used to accessing product. Catalyst products will continue to be available through traditional distribution markets.”

Publisher Services, Inc.
In 2001, Publisher Services, Inc. (PSI) was born from the growing market demand for quality entertainment products. We recognized a gap in the marketplace between the creators of great products and the fantastic retailers looking to meet the needs of a growing consumer base.
We formed client relationships with a select group of high quality manufacturers of board games, card games, role-playing games and toys. Today, PSI is the exclusive distributor for a selective list of top game, toy and entertainment manufacturers.
PSI developed a unique business model and blossomed by following a carefully managed path to ensure the utmost level of service to its manufacturing partners and retail clients. As a market-focused distributor who offers business and marketing strategy to each of its publishing partners, PSI has a growth strategy that is likewise focused and targeted. This is not a volume-driven business, but a specialty service that analyzes market trends to enable our publishing clients and channel customers to capitalize on market demand.
