Former Foot Surgeon Tries Hand At Selling Stamp Related T-Shirts

The Orange County Business Journal reports, "Allan Bernstein still goes by 'Doc,' even though he’s traded the precise work of foot and ankle surgery for the fickle and trying business of growing a T-shirt company."

Allan's company, Ethnicitee Apparel Co., designs T-shirts using postage stamp art from all over the world.

Allan said in the article that he came up with the stamp idea for T-shirts while preparing for Hebrew classes he was teaching at the time when he came across a Web site that taught the Holocaust in stamps.

His best selling shirt features an Albert Einstein stamp from Israel.

While not a collector himself, Allan is quoted as saying, "Every subject known to mankind is depicted on stamps. I try to celebrate what’s beautiful and positive about the world.”
