Pile Press is inspired by the never-ending consumption, the ever-long stack of books to read and the curious creations made possible. Pile is a small independent press, publishing the creative works of women, non-binary and gender fluid artists. We publish our quarterly journals with local print shops to help fund our community and talented artists in the Portland, OR area. Printing with local shops allows us more choice in the things that matter. Where our money goes matters. We also print small batch and on partially recycled paper to reduce our environmental impact and strive towards sustainable practices (this is also why we only ship orders within the U.S).
