PoCard for Wet Planet Whitewater

Wet Planet Whitewater offers exciting and professional rafting trips on the world-class White Salmon River in Husum, Washington. Located just 10 minutes from Hood River, in a beautiful river valley, Wet Planet is in an ideal location for river fun. Rafting the White Salmon is one of my favorite summer activities and always an unforgettable experience! The cards will be in Gorge area PoCard displays at the end of May. Grab one and get out to Wet Planet for an amazing raft trip on the White Salmon River!


PoCard for Red Hand Adventures

Black Ship Publishing has a stunning new PoCard featuring their Red Hand Adventures series of books. I read the book Rebels of the Kasbah in 24 hours. I couldn’t put it down! What a riveting adventure story! The book was written for readers ages 9 through 14, but at any age, this book entertains. It will be awesome to see where the rest of the series leads these characters. Pick up this PoCard in the Gorge area displays the first week of May!


New PoCard for Pfriem Family Brewers

Pfriem Family Brewers is one of my very favorite places in Hood River for both fabulous food and excellent brews. They have such great quality and selection on both their menu and in the draft selection. With a distinct Belgian influence and expression in the beers they offer, Pfriem has already built a solid reputation for their own unique style. The dishes they serve highlight the food itself, with a tasty European flair. Stop by the brewery on Portway Avenue in Hood River and enjoy an outstanding meal and beer soon!


PoCard for Maryhill Museum of Art

Maryhill Museum of Art opens March 15th and will be open until November 15th. If you have not been to Maryhill Museum or you have not visited for a while, this is the perfect year to visit. A newly completed wing of the museum has added significant display space to this wonderfully historic property. The collections, gardens, and setting are stunning. Look for the Maryhill Museum PoCard in Gorge area displays in March. Take the PoCard to the museum for $2 off admission!


A Big Thank You to 2012 PoCard Media Clients

It’s New Year’s Eve, and this is a great day to reflect on the past year and set intentions for the year ahead. In February of 2012, I began the slow process of acquiring PoCards while working a 40 hour per week office job. In May of 2012, I made the leap to working at PoCards full-time. PoCards has become PoCards Media and is now a full service creative agency.

I want to say THANK YOU to each of these awesome businesses that worked with PoCards Media in 2012.

Springhouse Cellar PoCard

Springhouse Cellar Winery has designed an awesome PoCard that features their super cool refillable glass wine containers. This is perfect for all of us who love great wine and are happy not to contribute to a growing pile of wine bottles in our recycling bins. Springhouse Cellar has, in my opinion, one of the top outdoor event spaces in the Gorge: The Ruins. Nights spent at The Ruins dancing to wonderful music under the open air and lights can be magical. Springhouse is located at the east end of the parking lot for the Mt.Hood Railroad. It’s a very nice and cozy place to get a glass of wine.


PoCard for Doppio Coffee + Lounge

Wow! What a spectacular view of the Gorge on this lovely Doppio Coffee + Lounge PoCard. Just looking at it makes me feel lucky to live here. Doppio Coffee + Lounge is an equally special business in the heart of downtown Hood River. Owner Michael Barthmus designed Doppio to be a hub of the community with strong influence of the community-oriented culture of coffeehouses that he is intimately familiar with in Europe. Doppio is driven by a strong belief in providing excellent customer service and by strongly supporting local business.
Doppio offers coffee, teas, chai, smoothies, and a full menu of salads, sandwiches, paninis, baked goods, breakfast fare, and desserts. The physical space of Doppio is a joy to be in, with warm indoor and outdoor seating facing a delightful courtyard.

Hood River Bagel PoCard

The latest PoCard is this whimsical Warhol-esque gem for Hood River Bagel Company. I love to stop in and get a freshly made Asiago Bagel with cream cheese and fresh tomatoes. Yum! In addition to a large selection of fresh bagels, spreads, and sandwiches, Hood River Bagel offers a terrific play area for the kids, fun magazines to read, a large selection of drinks including locally roasted organic coffee. Take the family down and get some great food!
