Cagle Cartoons Celebrates 10 Years in Biz

Daryl Cagle and his cartoon (and some columnists) syndicate Cagle Cartoons has lasted until the Aluminum Anniversary – 10 years. So buy your favorite cartoonist a beer!

Cagle writes:

It is the ten-year anniversary of our Cagle Cartoons political cartoons syndicate. New syndicates are rarities, and a new syndicate that lasts as long as ten years is almost unheard of. I guess the news is that we’re still here.

Ten years ago I was working as a daily cartoonist for Gannett’s Honolulu Advertiser. My cagle.com web site was popular and I made a deal with Microsoft’s Slate.com to partner, host and promote the site as part of Slate, which did a lot to boost our audience and our online profile. Also in 2000 I hired a veteran syndicate salesman to sell my own political cartoons to newspapers, marking the start of our syndicate. And I hired a tech guy to build our syndication site, caglecartoons.com, and our pay-per-use site, politicalcartoons.com. We added a bunch of great cartoonists to our roster and now have over 850 subscribers to our package syndication service, with even more pay-per-use customers. I think our syndication package is the best available, by far.
