happy anniversary ecru!


Today is Ecru’s 9th Anniversary! We opened our Pearl District store on a extremely hot July day much like today in 2006. It’s been an such an amazing journey since then with the last year being an exciting one for us with the opening of our 2nd location in downtown Portland last September. I am so lucky to be doing what I love everyday and so thankful for all our wonderful Pearl District customers who have made that possible by being so loyal and supportive over the years along with all our new customers downtown that have been so enthusiastic and welcoming. I’m looking forward to the year to come! Cheers!


current crush paper epiphanies

We’d love to introduce you to one of the newest additions to our shop and our current crush Paper Epiphanies, a letterpress stationery line (full of sarcasm) based out of Los Angeles.

IMG_0262IMG_5600We love the choice of colors and fonts that make the cards seems so sincere even when dropping an F-bomb! 


Although it may not be a line for everyone, we sure love that sometimes an uncensored card says everything we needed to! Find Paper Epiphanies in both our shops or online here.


We’ve been busy having fun here at Ecru, but if you don’t keep up on instagram you are definitely missing out!  Thats where we post new products, our current favorites and fun things happening around the shops.  Here’s a snippet of what has been going on lately, an ecru-gram!


Each row, left to right: Ferme á Papier birthday card for the photography lover, our spring window display at our downtown shop, happy mail that we love holding onto, new 1canoe2 planners, the cutest matches from The Social Type, soaps and lotions by Soap & Paper Factory, a snapshot of our Pearl location, our favorite office necessities and cleo candles at our downtown shop.

If you aren’t already, follow us on instagram & if you are in the shop feel free to take photos, tag us or use our hashtag #ecrupdx we’d love to see our shop through your eyes!
