a press with a heart.
by victoria comment


if you admire the design of sfgirlbybay at all, then you should know it could never have happened without hijiri shepherd. originally from toyko, hiji and i worked together in advertising here in san francisco, until she left to continue her adventures in brooklyn, where she helps me endlessly via email with all my blog design questions (with the patience of a saint!). hijiri has got to be hands down, one of the nicest people and most talented designers i have ever worked with. if you ever happen to meet her, you will understand my enthusiasm and love for her.

and now, i couldn’t be happier to share the launch of her latest creative endeavor, heartfish press. her beautifully crafted line of cards and prints are all letterpressed by hand using vintage wood type blocks on heavy, 100% cotton white paper with soy-based ink – which means it’s very eco-friendly (and, with nice, deep impressions!). heartfish launched in January and will be at the National Stationery Show in New York this May, and is also included in the latest issue of uppercase magazine. here’s a peek at hijiri’s heartfish line, available in her new shop. be sure to check out and follow her beautiful heartfish blog, too. yay, hijiri!
