Since 2010 Letterpress PDX has been printing business cards, wedding invitations, bookplates, broadsides, postcards, gift certificates, hang-tags, stationary, book covers, coasters, & bookmarks by hand on the 4+ tons of equipment that lives in the studio. Housed within the Disjecta Contemporary Arts Center building in the beautiful North Portland neighborhood of Kenton, the studio is filled with historic printing equipment and hundreds of letterpress samples that you can pick up & touch for inspiration.
For the DWP open house we'll have at least one of the presses up and running, and visitors will get a chance to view the process and equipment up-close and personal. There will also be a selection of letterpress goods printed at Letterpress PDX to peruse and purchase.
LOCATION NOTE: Entrance to the studio is at the back of the big grey & red Disjecta building along N. McClellan Ave.
