A Successful Fair!

The 2nd Annual Letterpress Printer's Fair in Portland yesterday was a huge success, with over 500 Portlanders and Letterpress enthusiasts visiting throughout the day to check out over two dozen vendor's letterpress printed cards, broadsides, posters, books, equipment and other letterpress ephemera that was for sale at Liberty Hall.  Twin Ravens Press was selling mostly letterpress printed greeting cards and coasters, most of which can be found online in our etsy store if you missed the show, as well as some random equipment odds and ends.  

I owe a big thank you to Carye Bye of Red Bat Press and Ivan Snyder of the AAPA for organizing the show.  I also owe a big thanks to my very good friend and fellow Eugene printer, Bob Giles, for all of his help manning our table yesterday.  It was a lot of fun and I look forward to helping out with and attending next year's show!  If you weren't local to Portland and/or couldn't make it out to the show, check out some additional photos at Red Bat Press' flickr stream here.  We also got a very lovely write-up on Art Scatter, which you can read here.  

Have a Happy Sunday and I'll be seeing you next week!
