So who is Poor Richard?

We are often asked where we got the name Poor Richard's print shop. Glad you asked! In 1976, we relocated and rebranded the print shop and decided to use America's bicentennial as inspiration for an early American theme.
Poor Richard's Almanac was a yearly publication created by Benjamin Franklin, the American inventor, statesman, and publisher who adopted the pseudonym of "Poor Richard." Franklin achieved success with Poor Richard's Almanac, which was a best seller for a pamphlet and copies printed reached 10,000 per year.
