Skeese Greets™, Greeting Cards for the Athletically Minded, strives to provide fun and unique cards for cycling and triathlon enthusiasts. The business, established in May 2005 in Austin, TX, currently has over 40 greeting card designs. Each card is designed using old bicycle chain and rings. The cards are available in bike shops across the US, as well as in Canada, Australia and the UK.
The business sponsors several triathlons, duathlons & cycling events throughout the year. In addition, Skeese Greets sponsors two non-profit athletic organizations (Girls on the Run and the Austin Duathletes), many pro-athletes, including recent Ironman Arizona Champion, Michael Lovato and a bike recycling project.
Owner and designer, Stacy Keese has been a runner for over 20 years. She directed her first 5k and 10k races in 1998 and has continued in similar capacities ever since, including the Skeese Greets Women's Tri. She has been deeply involved in Austin’s triathlon community for several years. After helping to open Jack and Adam’s Bicycles in late 2003 in downtown Austin, she started Skeese Greets.
Besides building Skeese Greets, directing races and working at the triathlon shop, you can often find Stacy riding her bike around Austin or running on her favorite trail, the Greenbelt, in the heart of Austin. For even bigger fun she's been fortunate to attend world class sporting events like the Tour de France, Ironman Hawaii, the Olympics and the Super Bowl.
