Meet the Designer

Hello there! I’m Keli, the founder and creative force behind Blue Thistle Prints. What began as a small side hustle selling greeting cards in 2018 soon blossomed into a fulfilling full-time career. It’s been an exciting journey so far, and I’m grateful that I get to be creative for a living.

With a background in art and illustration, I’ve always found solace in capturing beauty on paper during my personal time. Equipped with a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design and valuable experience gained from working with diverse design and marketing agencies, I bring a unique blend of expertise to my craft.

Each order is made-to-order and a labor of love. My process involves designing, printing, cutting, packaging, and shipping each order with care to customers throughout the states.


Items are lovingly designed, printed, cut, folded, & packaged by hand in my Minnesota design studio.


I am committed to using environmentally minded materials, packaging, & practices. Products are printed on FSC Certified cardstock, made from recycled materials + renewable energy. I also use recycled shipping materials as much as possible.
