Starting March 5th, there is an awesome exhibition happening at Disjecta in Portland. B&B helped out by donating paper, so check out this awesome show:

From Portland Paper City

Portland Paper City is an installation collaborative showcasing abstract, figurative, and architectural representations of the City of Portland through the art of papercraft and paper sculpture. Spearheaded by designers, Marisa Green, Jessie Bazata, Sean Garrison, and Rory Phillips, Portland Paper City has united the community, as well as emerging and established artists in the Portland area, by inviting them to contribute work that represents their love of Portland.
Original papercraft templates including people, vehicles, and animals have been provided for the public to download, craft and submit to the installation at Area artists are also invited to contribute unique paper works that are inspired by Portland.
This exhibition was made possible by Disjecta, with support from Art Spark, a creative networking event put on by the Regional Arts and Culture Council. In March of 2010, Portland Paper City entered a proposal to show at Disjecta. The public voted and Portland Paper City won.
Portland Paper City, an all paper installation collaborative, is being exhibited at Disjecta from Saturday, March 5, 2011 through Saturday, March 26, 2011. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2011 from 6PM-9PM.


As you may know, Burnham Street has changed a lot in the past couple months. The construction is just about done, but the speed limit has changed. To our customers, suppliers, and community, be advised that the Burnham Street speed limity is now 20 mph.

Stay Safe!


The holidays have kept our shop humming with holiday cards, calendars, and other goodies. Despite lots of press checks, deliveries, and general bustling, we’ve managed to stay in the holiday spirit.

First off, we’re bookending out book drive with a canned food drive. We’re well on our way to our goal of 350 pounds!


Secondly, (and most deliciously) our holiday cookie exchange was today. Folks from all through the office cooked up batches to share, and the results were scrumptious.




We hope you’re finding ways to enjoy holiday traditions with you families and peers. If you’re in the area, stop by for some cookie treats!

At B&B, wrapping up our holiday book drive for the Jim Bridger school in Portland doesn’t mean the giving season is over. As we tally organize the books, we’ve started a canned food drive for the Oregon Food bank. We started on Monday, and we’re well on our way to our goal of 350 pounds of canned food. If you would like to help in our efforts, let us know!

Burnham St. is now reopened at Ash where the B&B office is located. To any of our clients and suppliers that have encountered any inconvenience, thank you for bearing with us. Construction will continue for a few more weeks, but you no longer need to take the alternate route to our office. Follow the City of Tigard for instant updates on construction in the area.

Our calendar is eagerly awaited every year and this year is no exception. We are hard at work on a great new design and surprising new techniques… Check out this sneak peek! ¬†Again we will be using recycled, FSC-certified paper and 100% wind power.

Contact us to receive your complimentary calendar- coming in December!


For access to the B&B parking lot, use Hall Blvd. as shown in the image below. Check Burnham Updates for further info.

Who doesn’t love a scratch-off lottery ticket?

Even if you don’t win a prize, half the fun is scratching off the coating and finding out what is underneath!¬†One way to achieve this excitement with your printed piece is a scratch-off foil coating.

Ask B&B for advice on how to add this unique treatment to your project.
