The Walton Company Releases Official Lighthouses of North America Coaster Collection
US Lighthouse Society to Receive a Portion of All Sales of the Eco-Friendly, USA Made Collection

The Walton Company, a leading innovator and manufacturer of Made in the USA cork products, is pleased to announce the all-new museum quality Lighthouses of North America Collection featuring museum quality GrafixMat® engraving technology.  In cooperation with the US Lighthouse Society, The Walton Company contributes a portion of proceeds to the society in an effort to continue educating, informing, and entertaining those who are interested in lighthouses, past and present.

All coaster designs are by famed artist Paul M. Bradley, Jr., an architect by profession who began drawing lighthouses after a New England vacation sparked his interest in the structures. “Each design is so very detailed and perfectly captures the beauty of each lighthouse,” said Don Walton, The Walton Company Founder and President. “The unique coasters are art pieces that can be enjoyed by lighthouse enthusiasts and families alike.”

The Lighthouses of North America Coaster Collection utilizes top-quality cork and Bradley’s designs are engraved using a revolutionary, full-bleed process.
