Artist: Two Bees Press


Two Bees Press consists of a husband and wife team that specializes in gocco, offset and letterpress. The husband is a graphic and web designer and the wife creates custom stationery goods. Both have a love for all things print-related and when combined, they form Two Bees Press. I first found them when a friend gave my husband one of their cards for his birthday and then ran into them again at a local art in the park show. They were so kind as to let me interview them! Thanks Frank and Rebekah! See below for images of their fun work and the interview!
