Kelly Printing and Signs has been a family business since 1996. Richard and Esther Kelly first owned and operated the Fillmore County Journal and expanded with offset printing in downtown Preston, becoming “Kelly Printing.” Along with sons, Brad and Mike, we started designing and making signs and vehicle lettering through FCJ Signs located in Harmony. Later, screenprinting was added and done in Brad’s garage, located in Fountain. Eventually we began embroidery on clothing, using a single head embroidery machine and also started heat transfers, self inking stamps and more. In 1999, we purchased a the building we are in now and changed our business name to “Kelly Printing & Signs.” We have since become a dealer for Carhartt clothing and Red Wing shoes and became an ASI member and distributor for special promotional items. Our expansions have continued with two – four head embroidery machines, added a digital printer, increased our screenprinting area and a large format four color process printer to print on vinyl and banners. Grandson and Son, Andy, joined the family operation and he recently became a certified 3M Preferred Graphics Installer. The business is now owned by Brad and Mike and we currently have eight employees.
