Oregon Made

Meet Farmee. One of my first customers.  

Partners Ashley Lippard and Jennifer Sitter have created a line of products centered around the "Oregon Made" theme.  Ashley designs the pieces to reflect Northwest style and highlight all of great elements that make up Oregon. 

Their cards and other products can be found locally in stores (like Red Hills Market and Third Street Books) around the Yamhill Valley, as well as online at Found Bath.  

I am always excited to see what they come up with next. Check them out!

Busy weekend


I had such a great weekend! I had some time to rearrange part of my shop and hang some incredible mariner flags I picked up during a recent trip to Seattle.  I am lucky that I so many cool pieces of furniture to pull from our newspaper, this desk and chair are some of those items. 

I also got back photos that Kelly Searle of Maxine Denver took of my family last weekend.  This is a photo of me and my daughter Nora.  Kelly does such a great job shooting film.  She really knows how to use light without needing to touch the photos up...and they look amazing!

Sunday was full of get togethers. Nate and friends from Kinfolk Magazine stopped by the shop to get a sneak peek at their new calling cards.  I love how the thickness of the paper really compliments the simplicity of the design. 

Oh, and I got my Twitter account functioning again...follow me @typeapress.  

Have a great week!

First Blog Post! A Little History...

My family has been in the printing business a long time, and the newspaper business even longer.  A lot of cool things come along with that history, one of those things being my 1923 letterpress. Last year we pulled it out of our warehouse and dusted it off.  With a bit of elbow grease and a lot of love I opened my shop, Type A Press.  I am so lucky to have the support of family and friends as I pursue my “side gig”.  The fun is just getting started, and I can’t wait to share with everyone my love for letterpress and my journey through all of the  (very) different areas of my life.
