Notch Novelty Announces Re-Appointment of Long-Time Accountant

REDLANDS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2007 -- Notch Novelty Corporation (PINKSHEETS: NHNV), a manufacturer and distributor of high-value unique sign products and novelty items, announced the re-hiring of long-time accountants, Armando C. Ibarra, CPA of Chula Vista, California.

"Notch has been with the Ibarra firm since 1996 when the stock of the company was originally purchased from the Founder, Maury A. Notch," remarks Brett Weiss, CEO of Notch Novelty. "The firm resigned last year with the intention of performing the audits for NHNV's move to the OTCBB. As the Ibarra firm is no longer conducting public company audits, we have quickly re-hired them to serve as our accounting and CPA firm as they have been for the ten years prior. With our old team together, we are ready for more solid growth and sound financial management.

"In fact, Notch has only had three accountants in our 59-year history. Making a change isn't easy. But this change, bringing back fundamental team members, is always a pleasure."

Mr. Weiss also added that the company will soon be celebrating its 50th year anniversary as a customer of Union Bank of California. "Loyalty runs in our blood here."
