Tin Can Valley Printing

For years, we've been hounding our friend Craig Kotasek, owner and operator of Tin Can Valley Printing to make his handcrafted illustrated letterpress cards and posters available to more than just lucky local attendees of craft and farmers markets. He finally agreed, but only if we didn't go on at length about how much we love his work.
