Nite Owl Promotions started off in 1990 as Nite Owl Silk-Screening. Nite Owl was more of a hobby for a bored house mom than a business. Bonnie worked for an established screen printer for free for a few months to learn the trade, bought some used equipment and a business was born. Along the way the "hobby" just kept feeling more and more like a business. Husband Dean joined the effort in 1995 and the couple continued working out of the garage until 2006. Nite Owl relocated to it's Ellettsville store front location in 2006. Daughter Rachell joined the team full time in 2008 and son James joined full time in 2012.
The Kelley's have based their business on solid, old fashioned values of honesty, integrity, hard work, and a strong faith in God. It is their belief that any success that they achieve is a genuine gift from God. They operate their business in a casual, friendly manner and always try to make time for conversation with their customers.
If someone needs to talk, or a little cheering up, the staff always tries to do their part. They keep a little square glass container on the counter at the Ellettsville store. The container has the verse "Now Faith is the of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible", (Hebrews 11 1-3) inscribed on it and also contains the line, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, nothing will be impossible for you". That container is filled with mustard seeds, many friends and customers have entered their doors and left with encouraging words ringing in their ears and a mustard seed in their pocket. A tangible reminder of what a little faith and God's love can do.
