The holidays are in full swing in our studio with lots and lots of custom and non-custom holiday card printing happening!  Before I show off some of the awesome and adorable custom holiday cards though we’ve been working on for the past few weeks, I wanted to give a quick shout-out to our newest retailer, The Shop at Oregon College of Art & Craft!  I met MaryAnn of OCAC at The Portland Letterpress Printer’s Fair back in October and I’m so glad that she’s been enjoying having our greeting cards in her shop!  If you’re in Portland and haven’t had a chance to visit OCAC, get on it!  The Shop at OCAC is open year-round, 7 days a week from 10 am – 3 pm and is located at 8245 SW Barnes Road in Portland.  They can be reached by phone at: 971.255.4138 or by email at [email protected].  They also have a facebook page and website of their very own!

Visit Us at the 5th Annual Portland Letterpress Printer's Fair!

Hey Everybody!  Long time, no see!  I have been a terrible blogger this summer.  As you read in my last post (that happened in the middle of June) a lot new has been happening this summer for us logistically, as well as keeping up with all of the awesome new design and letterpress stuff we would have been doing anyway.  We moved into our new space in July and it’s awesome!  I still need to take some pictures to post up here and show you – but, trust me, it’s pretty great!

More updates and photos of awesome new work are coming soon, but in the meantime, if you’re going to be in Portland, Oregon tomorrow, Saturday, October 13th, you should come down and visit us at the 5th Annual Portland Letterpress Printer’s Fair.  This year the fair is being held at a new location: ADX, which is located at 417 SE 11th.  This year’s fair is going to feature lots of printed ephemera and other goodies, letterpress equipment and supplies for sale, printing demos, Kyle Durrie’s Moveable Type Truck, and live viewing of the Print Make Share Challenge.  It should be pretty awesome!!  The 2012 Letterpress Printer’s Fair is also happening in conjunction with Design Week Portland, so there’s going to be a lot of other, awesome, design-related stuff to see in the area.  So, if you’re in the Portland area, and have interest in letterpress printing, great design, moveable type, Twin Ravens Press, and/or all of the above, come on out to ADX between noon and 7:00 pm!  I’ll look forward to seeing you!!

Shop Twin Ravens Press in Portland, Oregon!


I have great news today for all of my Portland, Oregon readers, shoppers and aficionados!  If you live in Portland, Oregon you can now buy Twin Ravens Press products locally in a few different retail shops in your area.  The first store in Portland to ever carry Twin Ravens Press products was Broadway Books.  Broadway Books is a very nice, independent, locally-owned book-seller located in Northeast Portland at 1714 NE Broadway.  Go check them out!  

You can also purchase Twin Ravens Press products at two other locations.  The newest shop in the Portland area to carry our products is Oblation Papers and Press.  I’m very excited that Oblation started carrying our products because I have been in love with their little paper boutique since I was a college student – long before I even thought of starting Twin Ravens Press. Oblation is  an old-world letterpress print shop, urban paper mill and fine European-style paper boutique.  They specialize in custom invitations and announcements, but also have a lovely retail section, where one will find Italian correspondence stationary, fine fountain pens and distinctive paper from around the world.  The also carry an assortment of eclectic gift items, French wax seals, photo albums, journals, raw materials for bookbinding, designer office supplies and an unrivaled selection of handmade and letterpress printed greeting cards.  If you’d like to read more about Oblation’s printing and retail shop you can on their website. Below is a photo of the inside of their store, it’s really fun and inviting.  
Oblation has two locations.  Their original location (pictured at the top) is in downtown Portland in the Pearl District at 516 NW 12th Avenue and they also have a retail location in Bridgeport Village at 7243 Bridgeport Road in Tigard.  If you love my work, and/or letterpress printing in general and you’re in Portland, Oregon, go check out Oblation.  You will love them!  
Do you own, work at or know of a retail shop in your area where you’d love to see Twin Ravens Press’ products?  If you do, e-mail me at [email protected]! I love working with other retailers and would be glad to send your shop or a shop that you know of a wholesale catalog and price list.  We would love to work with you!
