Kate Bossen and her staff check in on Toy Talk from time to time.  Kate Bossen is the owner of Bossen Implement one of the largest and most popular farm toy dealers in North America.  Bossen Implement not only sells toys but also deals in custom parts and decal kits.  They read the posts about the lack of availability of red brand decals and decided to approach Case about a license.
