Shownotes

Katie and Berk ZieglerFresh Prints of CT provides artisan crafted gifts and posters to gift shops around the country and internationally.

Berk and Katie research current trends and discover artisans who excel at their craft. They find joy in providing customers access to arts and ideas that aren’t necessarily mainstream. In turn, this creates an environment for customers to explore and find products that are truly unique and memorable.

Through their wholesale offerings Berk and Katie also offer the opportunity for businesses to support original artists who create unique handcrafted gifts. Each item is conceived and crafted by the artist themselves therefore being not only one of a kind but also carrying a lovely story of how it was made.

As you can tell, they take great care in curating the high quality items available in their store.
