We're growing here and looking for a traffic and project coordinator to help in our custom printing department. This is a full-time position and you can read all about the job listing here.
Mother's Day is a big deal around here and we are celebrating with TWO special promotions.
**The first is for our Portland friends. Mother's Day means pretty cards and flowers which gave us the idea to team up with our friends at Anna Mara Flowers to offer a special Mother's Day treat! Between now and Mother's Day you'll receive a free Egg Press card to go with any Mother's Day purchase from Anna Mara.
Advance notice for arrangements is always encouraged (you can order in person or over the phone) but the shop will be stocked with lovely plants and flowers for 11th hour shoppers as well.
Anna Mara Flowers
2181 NW Nicolai St Portland, OR 97210
**The second event is open to anyone. Visit us on Facebook and tell us what your Mom gave you that you're most grateful for. Our favorite entry will receive a gift certificate for a set of personalized stationery for their Mom. The contest runs through May 1st. In the case of an overseas winner a gift certificate will be sent as a PDF via email.
We are so excited to be joining forces with our friends at Schoolhouse Electric for our first ever joint sample sale. We will have loads of cards for $1 and Schoolhouse Electric will be selling off floor models and accessories at great prices.
When: April 26-27 (10-6), April 28 (11-4)
Where: Schoolhouse Electric, 2181 NW Nicolai St, Portland OR
And for our friends who aren't in Portland, don't despair, you can get in on the fun too! We will be launching an online sample sale tomorrow at eggpress.com. The online sale will run through the 26th.
While letterpress will always be our first love, we enjoy mixing it up with other creative endeavors including screen printing. We recently had the opportunity to work on a fun project for our friends over at IDL Worldwide. Their in-house designers created a series of 10 unique prints to celebrate the music of local band Samsel and the Skirt who recently released their first EP. We created these hand pulled one-of-a-kind prints, with all proceeds going to Portland's Independent Print Resource Center.
We've been thinking about all the talented people in Portland, and pleased to realize how many of them we know. We count ourselves very fortunate. Jon Humphries has been a friend for years. He's a well known skateboard and action sports photographer with amazing portraits and a beautiful film reel. Recently he was asked by Color Magazine to do a story on folks in Portland. Our very own Tess Darrow made the roster! Check out the rest of the photos here.
