Berk and I met each other while taking a business class in college. On our first date he stared into my eyes and told me how much he liked me because I was a weirdo…although I thought unique or special may have been a better choice of words, I couldn’t really argue the facts.
Through our love for each other and everything quirky we developed and launched Fresh Prints of CT. Our philosophy is to honor self-expression in all its forms. We seek different perspectives and dare to be different. We look for popular trends and then experiment with design to make our items stand out.
We have a passion for what we do. Everyday we are committed to innovation and creativity. You make look at our product line up and find it hard to see how they all fit together. Well here is the secret – sometimes they don’t and that’s OK! Different strokes for different folks. We sell anything that tickles us and inspires us in hopes that we can bring the same joy to our customers.
It is important to us to build a company that is open-minded and fun to work with. We intend to build relationships and be a part of a community of like-minded business owners. So far this has been the most rewarding aspect of owning a business.
Part of our philosophy is to “do the right thing.” You do not have to compromise your morals to make money. We will always treat people how we would like to be treated. We will also always consider our impact on the environment. The decisions we make on manufacturing, packaging, and shipping will promote sustainability.
The majority of our products are made in the USA. Being the main makers of the products we sell enables us to cut out the middleman and offer cool items with high margins for our partners and competitive pricing for our customers. It also offers us better control of the overall quality of each item.
We hope you find something from our eclectic assortment of products that speaks to you.
Peace and Love,
Berk and Katie Ziegler
