Greg Kitson

Greg Kitson founded Mind’s Eye Graphics in 1980 and began the business as a backroom operation of a small-town family shoe store, where he had been using heat-applied textile graphics since 1974 at the age of 17. By 1984, the one-man screen printing operation had replaced the shoe store and hired its first employee. Since then, Mind’s Eye Graphics has grown to provide custom and contract screen printing to decorated apparel professionals around the world. It offers industry-specific PROScreen technical training and PROFITcycle business consulting at its 22,000-square-foot Indiana production facility as well as at client locations. Kitson also regularly contributes to industry publications and presents seminars.
