About Kiwi Publishing
KMG is a hybrid digital media/publishing company based in Woodbridge,CT.
The Thin Threads® brand was first introduced during its launch in national bookstores in November, 2009. Just as the Chicken Soup for the Soul and Cup of Comfort book series have received stories from thousands of writers across the US, so has Thin Threads® become a sought-after publication venue for writers. The Thin Threads® brand is rapidly achieving national recognition. This inspirational book series, which now contains 10 editions of Thin Threads® is now available in chains of Hallmarks, and in hundreds of hospital gift shops, specialty, card and stationary stores and pharmacies.

A web application, which brings web-to-print directly to consumers, is now on-line. This user-friendly platform gives consumers a unique opportunity to choose their favorite Kiwi stories, personalizing book covers with their own messages, photos, etc., and sending them to friends, relatives or associates. No other service or product like the Kiwi web application is currently available on-line. Kiwi believes that the custom personalized book application, coupled with multiple distribution channels, will develop into a significant revenue stream for the company.
Thin Threads® custom books offer a revolutionary new product to many commercial markets ranging from the nonprofit sector to premium venues. Nonprofits will find custom books valuable for supporting donor appeals and appreciation (see Book Annuity). Businesses in many industries can use the books as customer gifts, for employee appreciation, etc. Kiwi’s founders, Eitan & Stacey Battat are a dynamic duo of business mind and creative heart.
