Ken was raised in Kansas and arrived in Colorado compliments of the United States Air Force, at Lowry AFB in 1964.  After serving in Vietnam as a boots on the ground and in the sky combat photographer, he came back to the United States to complete his remaining 3 years of service. After being discharged he worked as a cameraman for Cessna Aircraft in Kansas.  He returned to Colorado in 1970 and worked for a civil engineering company in Fort Collins for 5 years. In 1975 he worked for a cattle breeding magazine as a cameraman and graphics artist and eventually bought the equipment and started Reprographics, Inc. in 1976.

Ken has brought the business from the camera and dark room world into the digital world, embracing every change that the graphics and printing and construction groups presented.  He was the first to bring digital blueprinting to Fort Collins, as well as large format printing, laminating and mounting.  He prides himself into being a leader in the digital industry

Ken is an artist in many realms- painting, photography, electronics, designing and creating furniture, designing and building his own residences, creating street rods and hot rods from old cars and car parts.  He has always worked on cars since he was a teenager.  His favorite is the 61 Chevy Impala Bubbletop which he drives around town when the weather is nice enough.  He is currently working on a 57 Oldsmobile 88.

Ori is a proud native of Colorado, enjoying the mountains and the prairie equally.  She was born and raised in Denver and graduated from University of Colorado with a B S in Education in 1975.  She joined Ken’s life in 1984 when the two married and combined families, settling into life with 4 teenage boys.  You could say she has worked at Repro for 37 years in some capacity or other, always by Ken’s side.

Upon retirement from her full-time career in the construction industry, she officially joined the Repro team, creating the Client Development department where marketing, networking and sales keep her busy along with the bookkeeping, deliveries and other duties as assigned.

Her philosophy is simple-treat people with dignity, do a good job at a fair price and you will keep your customers forever.

Ori is a devoted lifelong learner and reader/researcher.  She has been a birder since she was 2 years old.  She is an animal lover and a keen photographer. Being Irish, she always has a story to tell.
