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!
