Lightning Bug Gift Co. is a gift company based just outside of Altoona, Pennsylvania, with a focus on small batch, locally made goods to show off your local and Pennsylvania pride! Our products are created by us or in collaboration with other Pennsylvanian makers and artists.
Chris Bencivenga and Becki Hollen are the people behind Lightning Bug. They are artists and printmakers who have been working collaboratively, under the name everyday balloons print shop, for the last 8 years. After relocating to the Altoona area from Pittsburgh, they decided to put their printing and design skills to use to create area specific apparel and gift items. This also opened up the opportunity for collaboration with other makers and artists that they've met over the years in art show circuit.
