About Us

Egg Press is a letterpress greeting card company, founded and owned by Tess Darrow in Portland, Oregon. Our designs are thoughtfully created through the lens of analog printmaking. We believe letter writing is a valuable practice which keeps people connected.

We love our planet, let’s take care of her together.

We feel it’s our duty as a paper company to be committed to sustainability. We collaborate with our factory and materials partners to build short and long term goals to minimize our footprint.

Our letterpress greeting cards are designed intentionally to reduce waste and are printed on FSC certified, 30% post-consumer waste paper and paired with 100% recycled paper envelopes.

All products from our retail website now come without plastic packaging!

Write Letters, strengthen and forge relationships.

We believe that letter writing is a key tool for connecting with friends and neighbors - no matter how far away they are. Each year we host Write_On, a letter writing campaign encouraging our community to build the habit of letter writing into their daily lives.

We love to share cards with the community!
