Our Story

I'm Dana Lynch, a graphic designer and the founder of Blue Kite Press, a studio in Boston that makes housewares, stationery, and gifts featuring my illustrations, bright colors, and a hint of nostalgia. I'm passionate about creating functional and sustainable everyday products that make people smile and can turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary one.

It all started in 2019 when I began designing a collection of illustrations inspired by nostalgic memories and a dash of mid-century modern. I launched Blue Kite Press on Etsy a few months later to sell illustrated note cards, serving trays, and mugs.

Since then, Blue Kite Press has grown into a full line of stationery and home goods dedicated to delivering quality and sustainability. The bright color palette and nostalgic illustrations make people smile, while the functional mix of products appeals to shoppers who want to treat themselves or find a thoughtful gift. Each item can be sold individually or together as a set – perfect for gifting, entertaining, and celebrating special occasions.

My tagline is "Make every day a Blue Kite Day!" which means that anything is possible when we approach each day with creativity and curiosity.
