Through the miracle of the interwebs (and some Facebook stalking), I found out a friend of mine from high school had similarly been bitten by the entrepreneurial bug. So of course, I had to make a visit, because who needs an excuse to have human interaction more than a photographer editing away in his fortress of solitude.
A couple weeks back when I had another shoot in the area, I decided to drop by and catch up with Alessandra in her studio in DC where she, along with her two partners, run the super cool letterpress company Typecase Industries.
They make anything from invitations, to thank-you cards and coasters, with the classic feel and production process of letterpress printing that's palpable—an art quickly fading in this everything-digital age. If you love design, the smell of freshly dried ink, or human interaction, definitely check them out!
