Thank you to our friends at Hammerpress in Kansas City for being such amazing hosts a few weekends back. The trip to KC began at First Friday with $1 chocolate truffles by local hero Christopher Elbow and tacos from Port Fonda - a delicious taco truck parked out front. The main event was Hammerpress HQ where Matt, Jen, Britta, Katie and Eric shared beers and baklava along with advice for the best BBQ and second hand-shopping. It’s always fascinating to get a behind the scenes look at other creative studios and Hammerpress was no exception. Their vast type collection, array of presses, taxidermy, old signs and examples of work posted around the studio are some of the tasty ingredients that go into the magic they produce and print every day. Love you guys!

The KC hits: Hammerpress retail shop, Fresher than Fresh snow pops, Arthur Bryant’s burnt ends sandwich, drinking chocolate at Christopher Elbow, vintage treasures at Re-Runs and River Market Antique Mall, tug boats on the Missouri River!

In the case you are curious here’s a sneak peek at the designs we’ll be screen printing on your tea towels, totes and tee-shirts this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at our Holiday Sample Sale. If you forget to bring something to print on we’ll have American Apparel grey shirts available. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

It’s that time! Our Holiday Sample sale is THIS WEEK in the library at the brand new Schoolhouse Electric Showroom in Portland, Oregon. The shopping space will be a bit smaller than previous sales but on the upside, it’s a lot warmer – there’ll be no need to shop in your down parka and fingerless gloves.

Join us for $1 letterpress cards and screenprinted tees while you wait. Kata Golda will be here as well with her wool felt gifts, ceramics and jewelry. There will be festive snacks and friendly folks. AND, we highly recommend setting aside some time to browse Schoolhouse Electric’s beautiful new offerings.

NOVEMBER 17, 18 and 19th
10am to 6pm

Please note our new location: 2181 NW Nicolai Street Portland, OR 97210

We always leave our hearts in San Francisco when we visit. Last time we were there we left our heart at Gravel and Gold on 21st street in the Mission. They have a fantastic mix of vintage finds, quality basic togs, home goods and accessories. It’s like a mini department store and country general store all in one. The girls at PlainMADE alerted us to this new print by Gravel and Gold last week – quite an amazing coincidence don’t you think? We adore it and would like to get our hands on some of them – come on, get your mind out of the gutter!
