Simple and Perfect.

When I first moved to Portland, I was lost. No career, no money. Nothing but a 22 year-old with a Philosophy degree.

Then I found Em Space. It's a gorgeous converted factory building with 6 functional letterpresses. I spent about three years tinkering around until I decided to launch my own line of products which are right here for you to browse.

Every day I roll up my sleeves and start printing, remembering why we rescued these machines. Sun gleaming off a tarnished roller and the smell of oil and power. Each print becomes an extension of my idea, my work and my future.

I can't imagine a more challenging career. It's creatively taxing. Physically demanding. Mathematically infuriating. Oh, and incredibly risky.

I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for all the support :)
