100% of Iris Print Sales goes to Japan

Last week, Heartfish Press gathered 50% of all sales from the online shop and I am very happy to announce $225.50 has been raised and donated to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief! Thank you so much for your help!!

We are continuing to raise fund by offering this Iris Letterpress Print for $22 and ALL PROCEEDS GO TO JAPAN EARTHQUAKE RELIEF. Until everything will be sold out. I designed and printed this inspired by Japanese wood block print, it went through the press 6 times (usually 2-3 times), the Japanese words you see means ā€œIris.ā€

Please help spreading the words! Thank you so much!! xo Hijiri

Good morning :) Hope you had a nice weekend… I went to the bake sale (it’s happening again this Saturday, I donated some letterpress cards and will be there this week!) and the fundraising event to support my friends and my country. It felt really great :)

Came across this awesome poster by Beauchamping and had to share — REMEMBRANCE. All profits donated to disaster relief.

All the cities affected by natural disasters are listed under the “REMEMBRANCE The Coming Together As One” and the graphic is a simple circle (also, Japan’s country flag) — LOVE the concept and simple yet very strong message here.

Bake & Craft Sale for Japan Relief

Tomorrow and next Saturday, there is going to be a bake and craft sale in uptown NYC. Aki from oktak is organizing the event, she’ll have some of her wonderful handmade goods there, Heartfish Press will also be donating some letterpress cards, plus lots of yummy handmade baked goods (I can’t wait to get some) will be there! Please stop by if you live near there or if you are taking a walk to Central Park!

It’s been a week since the huge earthquake in Japan, my heart has been nowhere but in Japan… but I am staying strong for my country, doing whatever I can to help. If you follow my tweets, I’ve been passing around some valuable information on how you can help etc. since SO MANY people and companies are trying their best to donate their art work and raise funds for Japan, I’ve been so very touched to say the very least. Thank you all so much!!

Heartfish Press is still donating half of all sales throughout the weekend, please stop by!
