About the Studio
It’s fairly simple, really. Good things come from doing what you love. Twin Ravens Press was born when a love of creating gorgeous, contemporary graphic design was coupled with a love of antique heavy-machinery, beautiful handmade papers and centuries-old craftsmanship. At Twin Ravens Press, we understand good design and beautiful stationery go beyond paper and ink. We believe that the draw of holding something in your hands and having a connection with the person who created it is basic and universal. We all want something authentic and personal; something with a story behind it.
Founded in 2007 by graphic designer and printmaker, Kristin Walker, Twin Ravens Press strives to create beautiful and memorable letterpress invitations for a variety of events (including weddings, bar & bat mitzvahs, showers, parties, and other special events), as well as adorable baby announcements, compelling and unique business and personal stationery, fabulous greeting cards, calendars, and more! Our specialty is custom graphic design and letterpress printing. We also produce a small line of greeting cards, coasters, gift tags, and calendars, which are sold in a number of fine stationery boutiques throughout the country.
Every piece produced by Twin Ravens Press is printed in-house on either a 1912 or 1938 Chandler & Price letterpress, using a combination of hand-set type and photopolymer plates. Each sheet of paper is placed individually into the press, by hand, where the images and text are transferred by relief method, one color at a time, to create an impression you can see and feel. Our custom work ranges from small runs of calling cards to large wedding invitation suites and corporate marketing products, and our custom clients have come from every corner of the country and from across the globe. We are happy to print your already designed project, or work with you to design and develop a unique project of your very own. However you want to work, we will do our best to accommodate you!
Twin Ravens Press is located in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. In our spare time, we love to dance, hike, grow and eat organic produce, travel, take photographs, and dream up the next big project for Twin Ravens Press. Since the beginning we have strived to be an eco-conscious studio. From the papers and inks we use, to our recycling and donation habits, we create products that are not only beautiful, but also eco-friendly.
You can view our most recent works on our blog and on Instagram, and we are happy to provide samples if you would like to see our papers and printing in person. Please contact us today to discuss your upcoming graphic design & letterpress project! We look forward to hearing from you!
