Prints & Repeat
BY ALLYSON BOUSEMA
IN SIOUX FALLS
Allyson Bousema is a graphic designer living in the heart of Sioux Falls. She enjoys trying to make it to every art show on First Fridays and loves connecting with the creative and brilliant people who support this city like she does. She made a lot of artist connections at her last job and misses working with them. It's because of those connections, that she decided to start her own large format print shop, Prints & Repeat.
She wants to share her story and the path that led her to where she is now. She dreams of inspiring at least one other person to invest in their passions as well. There is something in her brain that wasn't there before. The confidence that she has earned now motivates her everyday to do things even when she thinks she can't. She's Allyson Bousema, and she is here to help.
