Write_On was created to encourage people to connect with each other via hand-written correspondence and for the fourth year in a row we were honored to host the official kick-off party at our flagship store in Portland, Oregon. Since April is national letter writing month, we started it off with a bang on March 31st and filled our showroom with an awesome group of letter-writing enthusiasts from all walks of life.
With energy, excitement and good vibes all around, people gathered together for a meaningful evening of putting pen to paper. There's something very special about the act of making time for yourself, and in turn others (the people receiving your letters), to accomplish something that can easily get pushed aside. One new element to the event that we particularly loved this year was the opportunity to write a note to your future self - which Egg Press would keep safe and then mail to you a year from now. Such a cool idea and treat to look forward to. We also had delicious wine from Union Wine Co., brews from Occidental Brewing, delicious bites by Artemis Foods and little bits of candy magic from Quin. See our snaps from the party below!
Thanks to everyone who continues to make Write_On such a smashing success every year and especially to Egg Press for their generous spirit, creativity and work to keep the art of handwritten communication alive and prospering in the digital age. We truly look forward to this day for months on end and can't wait to do it all over again next year!
