International DOG Day!

“Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.” – John Grogan

On August 26th, we observe a day to give love, thanks, and all the belly rubs to our very best friends on International Dog Day!  The aim of international dog day is to celebrate the well-being of dogs, raise awareness around breeding farms/backyard breeders, show appreciation towards rescue centers, and encourage the adoption of these animals across the globe. This day is an open door to generate a conversation that may save the life of an animal. To welcome dogs who were once unwanted into our hearts and into our homes – to give displaced, abandoned, and abused dogs of all shapes, sizes, and breeds the loving companionship and comfort of home that they deserve.

Here at AENT: Distribution Solutions, our companions truly bring out the best in our lives be it by our side, or on the big screen as characters sure to strum our heartstring’s. We’d like to recognize some of the canine characters we’ve had the privilege of featuring throughout our partnership with Mill Creek Entertainment. Here are a few of our favorite titles for you to enjoy!

Air Bud | Summer’s Shadow | Benji | Life With Dog | Dog House

In honor of our canine counterparts, the notable talent in our lives – we’d like to introduce the rescue pups our team has welcomed into their famiy over the years!

Midwest Animal Rescue | Secondhand Hounds | Animal Humane Society | Best Friends Animal Society

Curl up with a great flick, support your local rescue society, and grab your favorite tug toy with your best puppy pal – because one thing’s for sure, the world is a much better place because dogs are in it.

Mail Order Catalog Day! (Yes, it’s a thing!)

Happy National Mail Order Catalog Day!

This unofficial holiday commemorates the day in 1872 when American entrepreneur Aaron Montgomery Ward sent out the first modern mail order catalog to customers in Chicago

You might be surprised to know that even with the rise of eCommerce, catalog sales are alive and well, generating about $125 billion in annual revenue. 12 billion catalogs are mailed, and 90 million Americans purchase from catalogs annually.

For traditionalists and collectors who enjoy a more specialized browsing experience, catalogs are just the ticket. (After all, with thousands of movies of all genres available, finding favorite film genres online can be a bit overwhelming.) Catalogs provide an assortment of products carefully chosen by content experts, can highlight focused products, and make browsing and shopping a breeze.

Alliance Entertainment’s catalog retailer, Direct-To-U (DTU),  boasts several brands (Critic’s Choice, Movies Unlimited, TCM, Collector’s Choice), each offering carefully curated products and promotions for their customers. 

Catalog shoppers really connect with physical products like DVDs and Blu-ray, and the team at Distribution Solutions ensures that our label partners’ releases are included in the DTU catalogs that fit their audience.

Shipping more than 8.8 MILLION catalogs annually, DTU is an essential and fabulous partner!
