Interview with stephanie from Highway Press
When did you start letterpress printing?: 
In 2012
What do you like best about letterpress printing?: 
I love having my hands on every element in the process. From sketching designs, creating digital files, cutting the paper, mixing the ink, and calibrating the press.
What inspires you?: 
Many things; early 20th century design of matchbook covers, handkerchiefs, wallpaper, architectural ornament, book covers, typography, postcards. Any printed ephemera!
Which press(es), ink & paper do you usually use?: 
Van Son inks, both oil and rubber. Lettra 110# and 220#, Mohawk Superfine and kraft for posters.
How would you describe your artwork?: 
I scan from my scratchboard illustrations.
What kind of products do you create?: 
Invitations, stationery, posters, business cards, announcements
Do you offer custom work?:

Is there anything you wished you had known as a beginner?: 
Pay more to hire an experienced moving company to transport a printing press. AND how much print quality depends on proper press packing.
