  • Amy Rice Art
    Amy Rice Art
    Art Prints

    Minneapolis artist and printmaker Amy Rice has exhibited her fine art in galleries nationally and abroad for over a decade. After finding an antique sign press machine (a type of letterpress) and some great fonts in an antique shop one day, she heard “You Can Go Your Own Way” on the radio on the drive home, and had a giant lightbulb moment. The prints and letterpress products that came from that lightbulb have been a hit ever since.
