Interview with Dara from Rafftruck Designs
When did you start letterpress printing?: 
2006
What do you like best about letterpress printing?:

Bright colors, bold patterns, and chilly autumn days.
Which press(es), ink & paper do you usually use?:

Clean designs paired with fun, personality-filled typography and bold pops of color.
