Evan Calkins, all-around awesome dude and the man behind Hoban Press:

I’m a big fan of designing within constraints. A letterpress printed business card has some pretty serious constraints. Unlike the web, I am working with a fixed sheet of paper and generally working with one or two colors at a time. Unlike full color print work, letterpress printed pieces are relatively simple and centered around typography instead of complex graphics. I love this about the trade and I’m greatly inspired by other designers and printers who pull this off well.
