Check out this great mini-doc on Portland’s Stumptown Printers.
As many of you know we use Stumptown for a good portion of our packaging.
Not only to they do a bang up job, they got good ideas about business as well!
Enjoyed the almost tangible ink and machine oil smells in this nice film.
really nice to see what goes on in that building i pass on the MAX train all the time. beautiful machines. more impressed with their operation than ever.
Something that didn’t get mentioned in that film (which was pretty sweet) is that they started their shop as a collective, organized with the I.W.W. They’re part of a sadly faded tradition of old-timey DIY culture mashed with anarchistyness that used to be everywhere in Portland.
They’re great people – it makes me really happy to see them doing so well.
