Harry Potter's American Cousin?

Despite the name, Ashton Potter is not one of Harry Potter's American cousins.

Located in Williamsville, New York,  the company was founded in 1925 by the Ashton and Potter families and works with some of the world's largest postal authorities in manufacturing their postage stamp products.

According to the company website, "We can provide all stamp products in all formats and sizes through manufacturing and service agreements tailored specifically to individual Postal Authority requirements. Our manufacturing capabilities and capacities enable us to offer high quality, specialized stamp products in cost effective solutions. With over 35 years experience we are one of the world's largest producers of postage stamp products."

The company also makes cigarette tax stamps, liquor and spirits excise stamps and tax revenue stamps.
