Poppytalk Handmade


Just a quick announcement that Heartfish Press is participating Poppytalk Handmade Mother’s Day and Eco-themed market! Our products are printed on 100% cotton paper with soy-based ink so it is very eco-friendly as you might have already known. Please stop by our virtual booth here!



Good morning! I hope you all had a nice 4th of July weekend… Happy Birthday, America :)

This morning, I am really inspired by the ecofont (created by SPRANQ): this font has white holes as you see and uses 20% less ink than usual. So your ink cartridges (or toner) could last longer. I might start using this font for my estimates and invoices… what a smart idea! It is totally ledgible, nice sans-serif font, too.



Available from T26 here or ecofont website here. Enjoy and save ink!

Their new hydrangea series are just so lovely. This hydrangea thank you card is letterpressed on cotton papers.


and this jotter is made with eco-friendly sustainably harvested birch and recycled papers.


I also loooove this feather series. Melts my heart! Their famous wood cards are just so great and this postcard is no exception.


and the letterpressed feather cards. I love that “i love you” part is more like hand-written looking! So cute.


Happy Earth Day, everyone!

Draw Your Own Heart Letterpress Card

I am so proud to announce my new letterpress card at my shop… “Draw Your Own Heart” card!

I’ve had this idea for a while and I’m so happy to see the final product. As you can see, there is a space in between “I” and “YOU” and you can draw your own heart to read “I HEART YOU” or you can fill out the space with anything you’d like to create your own message.

I used cotton papers and recycled envelopes so it is eco-friendly, too. I used vintage wood type blocks so the letters have a nice texture.

Available with red envelope:

and with pink envelope:

You can do “I MISS YOU” by drawing an eye with tears, you can draw a birthday cake and have it read as “I CELEBRATE YOU” or you can draw more than one heart to show how much you love this person etc. you can do a lot with this!

Have fun and be creative!
