On Vacation!

I will be on vacation (aka baby moon) until Monday, August 22nd — we’ll be spending relaxing time in Cape Cod, MA with limited Internet access… so I will see you when I get back!

The picture is from beyond design — they design these vintage inspired save the date postcard. Perfect if you are planning a destination wedding or an event :)

Oh, and Heartfish Press is having a vacation sale — enter coder “summervacation11” to get 20% off entire order! Your order will be shipped AFTER we get back on Monday, August 22nd. Make sure to stop by and stock up some letterpress goodies for the fall/winter :)

If you have Twitter or Instagram (@heartfishpress), I’ll be popping in whenever I can so I’ll see you over there! Have a great week, everyone! xo Hijiri


Printed more “thank you” cards with wood types for my shop the other day and look what happened! “E” was backward :) It happens sometimes due to the mirrored wood type blocks, but thought it was fun to share it here. I flipped the “E” after this so just this only one.

In case you never seen this, this is something I print for my customers. I write a thank you note for each customer on the back of the card. You will receive one with your order*!

*not with poster orders, unfortunately… these cards are too stiff to include into a tube mailer :(

I have “Hello!” “Enjoy!” and “Thank U!” now. Let’s see which one you will receive…

The Post Card

I also received a postcard for the Proceed and Be Bold film and this is going to be on my inspiration board for sure. I’m pretty sure Amos himself printed this postcard, it is letterpressed very nicely with wood types. Love the stars and the texture as it always gets me. I also love the chipboard, I am actually printing something on chipboard (will share it here soon) and my business card is also printed on chipboard so what not to love about this postcard! Perfect :)



I like this “post card” design, too.


Night Owl Paper Goods

I picked up my first Night Owl Paper Goods wooden card. I love that it’s on wood, has very nice texture, but I wouldn’t love it if it wasn’t eco-friendly! It’s made from eco-friendly sustainably harvested yellow birch.

My card — it’s decorated in my office area.

They have a lot more pretty cards:

and beautiful save the date cards, cute and whimsical ones… click here for all the eco-friendly wooden cards.

They also carry a blank one! I wonder if I can print on this, that would be an original customized wooden card! It says you can write with a pen, pencil or marker… so you can draw your own art for sure.

They have eco-friendly wooden journals and jotters lines and this one is my favorite. The cover is letterpressed, the button is from the sustainably harvested wood, and it’s made out of 100% post-consumer recycled paper. So cute!

They also carry business card size holiday gift cards that are so cute, too!

They have more fun paper goods, too, look around their website from here.
