About

vivachilewoodtype

We are a small operation using traditional machines and techniques to produce quality printed goods and smart design. Through our conscious practices rooted in a culture that supersedes borders, we intertwine craft and art, lo folklórico and the literary. Each project is crafted entirely by hand, from concept designing to putting ink on paper. Because we are physically connected with every step of process, each piece becomes a beautiful, functional collaboration. We offer a variety of in-house services to fully realize your personal, business or artistic intention. Our target clients are creative professionals and small businesses who value traditional processes, local sustainable economy, and the growing Latino presence here in Portland, Oregon.

Letra Chueca Press is co-founded by Camila Araya and Daniela Ragan. Two patiperras, hailing from Chile, who share a vision: to operate a sustainable, multicultural space dedicated to the craft of letterpress and binding here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
