Faces of Kingston: Kyle Johnson

Get to know the faces of Kingston Printing!

For our first employee feature, we’re focusing on Kyle Johnson, President of Kingston Printing, father of three and die-hard KU fan.

To say Kingston Printing is a family-owned business is a bit of an understatement. Kyle’s father, Dick Johnson, purchased Kingston Printing almost 30 years ago and grew the business from 3 to 30 employees before Kyle stepped into his shoes. Kyle has now led Kingston for 15 years.

When asked who his biggest influence has been, Kyle answered,

“It has been my father. As I grew up, I watched him grow this company from three to 30 employees. I’ve learned to work hard and treat everyone fairly. In business, your reputation means everything.”

Kyle’s favorite form of printing, you ask? Litho printing is number one for Kyle, but a close runner up is wide format, “It’s the most fun!”

Wide format printers support a maximum print roll width of between 18″ and 100″and are used to print a number of items including banners, posters, trade show graphics, wallpaper, murals, vehicle wraps, architectural drawings, construction plans and any other large format artwork or signage. Wide format printers usually employ some variant of inkjet or toner based technology to produce the printed image and are typically designed for printing onto a roll of print media that feeds incrementally during the print process, rather than onto individual sheets.

Say “hello” if you happen to stop in to Kingston and ask for a tour. Kyle will happily take you through the facility, and you’ll be sure to learn something new!
