We’re having a great time at the NSS this week. It’s impossible to get photos of everything we’ve seen and loved. But here’s our first post to share some of the goodness we’ve been staring at all week.
HAMMERPRESS - We’ve long been fans of this Kansas City press shop and we love that our booth is directly across from there’s at this years show. They’ve got some great new designs. Including some sweet die cut holiday cards.
YELLOW OWL WORKSHOP - Just around the corner from our booth is one of our hometown neighbors and friends, Yellow Owl Workshop. We were so impressed during set up to see Christine painting a masterpiece in her booth – check out these lovely walls! As you can imagine their booth is definitely a stand out and we love how the cards match her amazing walls.
EGG PRESS – Another stand out booth is the this homemade beauty from Portland based Egg Press. Check out their custom built walls. Some great new designs from another one of our favorite letterpress companies — and we’re not just saying that in light of our big news.
9th LETTER PRESS - Another close neighbor to us at the show is 9th Letterpress, based out of Winter Park, Florida. They’ve got some lovely new designs and we’re also liking their big spacious booth with simple wood shelves. We love the infusion of bright cheery colors in their designs as well.
Alright! We’re off to the show for another day. Check back for more of our favorites which we should have up here soon!

We’re packing our bags and getting ready to head to New York once again for the National Stationery Show. We’re super excited to catch up with old friends, favorite designers, customers, editors, and everyone else we’ll see in NY. This new release is one of our biggest yet and we can’t wait to unveil it to the world. Fingers crossed everyone else will like it as much as we do! We’ll be sure to take lots of photos and share all the goodness we see at NSS with you here on the blog.
If you’ll be at the show please come by and say hello, we’d love to see you!
We have some big news! In May we’re moving our letterpress studio to Portland, Oregon. Everything you know and love about Hello!Lucky will remain the same, but starting this summer all of the printing, production, and distribution of our letterpress cards will be overseen by one of our favorite letterpress card companies, Egg Press. All of our products, including our wedding invitations, greeting cards, and personal stationery, will still be available on the Hello!Lucky website where you can order and customize as you’ve always been able to.
We’ll still be regularly adding new product to our site, posting things we love here on our blog, and updating you with what we’re up to through social media. And, soon you’ll be able to purchase Egg Press custom products on our site, too! Eunice and Sabrina will continue to design new cards and invitations, brainstorm new products, and manage Hello!Lucky from our new design studio in San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury neighborhood.
We’re thrilled to release fifty new cards for one of our biggest releases yet this May. And we’ll be at the National Stationery Show debuting our new line. If you’ll be there come visit us and say hello at booth #1759!
Here’s to another great decade and all that’s yet to come!
There’s nothing we love more than seeing our designs for brides on display and put to use at their weddings. We spend so much time at our computers working hard to get every design and detail just right, it’s so rewarding to see how they look on the big day!
Elizabeth and Kristof were married in Carmel, overlooking the mountains. We’re all about natural backdrops for weddings and this one is perfection.
Here’s some of the signage we worked on for the lovely couple. We’re excited to say that this design is now available on our site, we aptly named it Mountain Skyline. Like all of our skyline designs, this one is available in both letterpress and flat printing.
Congratulations Elizabeth and Kristof!
Our Marquee Save The Date transformed into a graduation party invite.
Did you know that all of the invitations on our website are completely customizable? We worked hard getting our custom tool just right and as a result you can personalize all of the designs on our website, allowing you to pick your favorite font and colors for whatever occasion you’re planning. See a wedding invite you wish could be turned into a bachelorette party invitation? You can turn it into one!
Shooting Star is the perfect design to celebrate your star childs achievements!
We know now is the time a lot of you are planning for graduation parties so we used our custom tool to show you how you could personalize our designs for the grad in your life.
Changing the color on a particular design can transform a formal style into a more casual one. Here we took our Flourish Rehearsal Dinner invitation and customized it so it was more suited for a relaxed graduation party in the park.
Here’s to a great graduation season! If you’re throwing a party we hope you find the perfect invitation on our site!
This week we were featured on the National Stationery Show’s industry blog. We shared what we thought made a show-stopping booth and gave some examples of booths we’ve loved at shows past.
We’re all about keeping booth designs clean and simple and think a little can go a long way. This year we’ll be going with white walls and some big and bold neon decals taken from some of our favorite new card designs.
We love these booths from previous shows; at top Hannah Berman of Pie Bird Press looking adorable in her simple booth with colorful bunting, next Snow & Graham‘s stunning wall of paper flowers at the 2012 show, and finally, a wonderfully rustic booth from Grey Cardigan at last years show, we could live in this well designed booth!
