Nate is the first person I did business with in Newberg when I bought my studio. He immediately plugged me into the chamber of commerce, then a committee, then his friendship was mine forever!!! Nate has grown Rendered from an idea – to a tiny garage – into his new shop into a multifaceted and very successful marketing, promotions, design, and screen print biz in less than 5 years. He is much like the mascot of what a Young Pro is in Newberg. Nate has branched out to the wine industry and therefore reaches beyond Newberg and has his finger on the pulse of what those people in Carlton are doing, those bike-freaks in Portland, and the totally awesome new things happening in our valley. Nate often says to me, “Have you heard of the new (blah) going in? So-and-so is doing it and it’s going to be rad.” Nate is sort of the epicenter of young happenings in Newberg and if you don’t know him yet, you should. Stop by his shop on First Friday Artwalk and have a beer with him. You’ll love him. You’ve seen his face on shirts…he is the one, the only, Nate Travers.
Nate is an active member of the Chehalem Valley Chamber of Commerce and Newberg Early Bird Rotary.
