Letterpress Print with Raquel Raney of SeeSaw Designs

In the age of digital presses where anything can be printed on demand at high speed, it's only natural there's a renewed interest in an old-school technique like Letterpress printing.

The design team at SeeSaw Designs in Scottsdale are not immune to the love of vintage printing, and they've taken the time and energy to find the Letterpresses and all the gear that goes along with it to create beautiful cards and calendars that have that retro feel.

We caught up with Raquel Raney, one of SeeSaw designers to discuss her crush on Letterpress printing and to get a feel for how it's done. "We're still learning as we go and I'm sure we do a lot a little bit backwards," says Raquel. "But, we love it and it's not going anywhere."

To see if you're ready to make the commitment to Letterpress printing, take the jump.
