Our Story

Remember Ben Franklin’s Kite Experiment?

Using a kite, a metal key and the electrical current in the air during a thunderstorm, Ben Franklin proved his theories about conducting electrical energy. I admire many things about Ben Franklin and his many contributions as an inventor, writer, printer, statesman and Founding Father. The kite reminds me of Ben Franklin’s ingenuity and sense of wonder.

Like Ben Franklin, I began my career in printing and working for a newspaper. I recently returned to design and printing and wanted to combine the two.

At Blue Kite Press, there really is a press. The press prints my designs and illustrations onto apparel, housewares and other items. You can even personalize many of our items to create one-of-a-kind products and gifts. I think Ben Franklin would approve and I hope you do too.
