The Print House

2435 Strider Lane | Bellingham, WA 98226 (come say hi, M-Th 8-4)


Custom isn't just for pros. Ground Keeper was born from a desire to rid the world of boring bikes and provide riders the tools to do so. From design to manufacturing, all of our products are made at our shop in Bellingham, WA. Keeping production in-house has meant we can create a steady stream of fresh designs and turn-around custom products in just a couple weeks. We also regularly collaborate with brands, artists and riders in order to provide an array of familiar and creative designs that will surely turn some heads on the trails.


The GK seed was planted in the spring of 2017 after setting out to make a small run of fenders for a project and realizing no one could make what we wanted! Minimums for custom fenders were 100, colors were limited, and if you wanted intricate designs… forget about it. So we set out to fill this massive gap in the market and bring rad fenders to all. After months of testing prototypes and printing capabilities, the first generation of Ground Keepers were born in December 2017. Since then, we expanded our capabilities to custom topcaps, frame protection, and most recently, suspension decals.

Keely Shannon / OWNER & Founder

Keely worked as a graphic designer and marketing manager in the bike industry for several years and started GK in 2017. Tired of black and grey graphics and the "racer's only" mentality that accompanies the sport, Keely's main goal is to bring a little fun to scene.

Austin Vonkutzleben / Production

Austin is an invaluable piece of the GK puzzle, handling the production and shipment of every product that goes out our doors. When he isn’t working on one of his weird vintage bike projects or shredding the local trails with his pup, he is most likely here at our HQ obsessing over some of your rad custom orders.

Josh woodward / content creation

While he may look too young to hold any sort of responsibility, Josh helps with a lot of what you will see from Ground Keeper on a day to day basis. Making content, handling customer service, planning product launches and pondering the infinite expanse of the universe, Josh does a bit of everything.
