Located in Seattle, Washington, Factory 43 hand-forges quality graphic goods – including t-shirts, screen-printed posters, and letterpress cards. Their unique illustrations mix hand-inked drawings, collaged photographs and found textures with quirky subject matter. Factory 43 is comprised of Andrew Saeger and Veronica Velasco, who met while working in the art department of the now defunct Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Their shared passion for design and love of hand-printed objects combined with the death of journalism led them to found Factory 43.

Happy New Year from PBG!

PBg gals
Happy New Year everyone! We here at PBG hope you had a  fabulous holiday season – we certainly did! We were busier than ever and that equals more fun too. So as 2015 comes to a close, we will leave our snarkiness behind the counter for a moment and offer a sincere, wholehearted thank you for supporting us over this last year. We wouldn’t be here without all of you sharing our love for fun, functional local gifts and cards.

We will be closed January 1st – most likely nursing hangovers and noshing on  greasy food and  strong coffee right along with everyone else. This also means no Fremont Art Walk – we will be keeping the delightful plush of Careful It Bites up for one more month before we welcome another artist in February.
Cheers to an amazing 2016!
