We are so happy Sally of Ratbee Press will be there with her fun letterpress prints and screenprinted tees and totes.
Ratbee Press started in 2012 with an interest in woodblock printing and hand-lettering. Add an apprenticeship at an old letterpress printshop in Asheville, a gifted a 1920's Pilot press from school house auction, a couple years accumulating lead and wood type, learning carving techniques, and dreaming about being a full time print shop, and here we are.
"Here at Ratbee Press we design and print cards, art prints, wedding invitations and t-shirts using letterpress or screenprinting. It's mostly a one-woman operation. Each product is an opportunity to dig in and get dirty, create, make mistakes and learn. We're inspired by the natural world, music, and the occasional pun."
