"I love creating our unique gifts and imagining the stories behind each one. Every day is different and I am thrilled when I can be a part of creating the perfect gift." --Kyle
When We Say Personalized, We're Not Kidding So how many choices are there? When we say, "Hundreds of Designs, Millions of Possibilities," we're not exaggerating. Just an example: our unique business card cases may be customized with more than 500 original designs, 30 accent colors, 2 metal finishes and 2 depths, so 500 x 30 x 2 x 2 = 60,000 choices. And that's just for one item - before adding engraving!
Bottom line is, we encourage our customers to create distinctive gifts that reflect a diverse range of styles and interests. (Now, we wish we could show you photos of what all 60,000 posssibilites would look like. But if we put all of our time into creating photos, we wouldn't be able to make your items so quickly. ;) So instead, we simply ask that you use a little imagination and perhaps look through our gifts for color lovers to see examples on actual products.)
How We Make Our Custom Gifts In order to quickly customize your items, my staff and I create all the elements that go into your piece ahead of time. We prepare the etched and plated metal, cut the stained glass, form the aluminum, or handcraft the exclusive iridescent film using my secret process. We have these all available on hand when you place your order. Your gift item is then created using your selected design layered over a thin sheet of the aluminum or iridescent film of your choice.

Reputable Kyle Design is a well-established company in business since 1982 and 100% owned by Kyle McKeown Mansfield. Long-time member of the Livermore Chamber of Commerce.
Over the years, I've studied metal forming and gemology at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, weaving and shibori (Japanese tie dye) at the Mendocino Art Center, plus painting, drawing, ceramics, jewelry making, spinning, inkle loom weaving, card weaving, silk painting, silk screening, glass slumping, copper enameling and more at various arts centers throughout California. I've built a solid reputation for creative design solutions and quality hand craftsmanship in my 30+ years as a studio artist.
Surrounded by color and design in a family that loved creating, I grew up admiring the works of famous artists as well as those of my parents and their friends. This early hands-on exposure set my future - I knew from a very young age that I, too wanted to grow up to be an artist. (I have it in writing from kindergarten!) I'm the daughter of two nationally recognized artists: the late woodworker Robert G. McKeown and ceramic/stained glass artist Lee M. McKeown.
In addition to a love of creative visual arts, I also enjoy cooking, reading, and walking. I'm married to a wonderful man who loves math with a passion. We have two active daughters and live in Northern California.
