New Holiday Cards

We are really excited about this round of holiday cards. We focused pretty heavily on hand-drawn designs finished in foil. Can't go wrong with that combination!

See the full collection here. Orders placed between 11/24/14- 11/28/14 will get free shipping with code HOLIDAY!

Permanent Press Editions

We are thrilled to announce this exciting project founded by Shana Faust and Alexa Mulvihill.

Permanent Press Editions is a print shop offering archival-quality prints at an affordable price. The prints featuring inanimate objects can be purchased inside or outside the frame in singles or groupings.

They have managed to make each subject thoughtful when it could otherwise be interpreted as mundane. It's a blend of simplicity and nostalgia, and as perfectly described by them- “Each image is a portrait, a memory, a sensation—the smell of salt air, the magic of a glitter-infused comb, the endless possibilities housed in a box of colored pencils. “.

We love this concept, and the execution is flawless. We are putting Permanent Press Editions on our Christmas list, that's for sure!

Superhero Halloween

Halloween is one of our favorite Holidays at Hello!Lucky where we are all about embracing our inner-child. There’s really nothing better than getting to trot around the city dressed as a posse of Marvel characters and have it be 100% socially accepted.  Eunice and clan did just that in their costumes made custom for each family member by Eunice herself.

See the inspiration and the outcome below!

Luci Soli Creations

Luci Soli is a French label, handcrafting goods to delicately & purposefully adorn a kids space. We are unsure of whether the crescent moon wall hanging was a gift for Eunice's little lady or for herself. Either way we don’t blame her, it’s adorable and we will all enjoy its presence on the door handle to the world’s cutest nursery.

To purchase one of the treasures featured below visit the Luci Soli etsy shop and get your baby a bear even you will drool over!

Red, White, & Indigo

Independence Day is the perfect day for BBQ, sparklers, and a side of DIY. This workshop hosted by Joya of Joya Rose Designs and Katherine of The Habitat Factory is the exact kind of summer soiree we spend our days swooning over.  This step by step tutorial will guide you into creating your own beautiful indigo dyed linen napkins.

Les Petits Carreaux

Les Petits Carreaux is a new children's clothing label which is perfectly adorable. It was created by mom duo Stéphanie Ross & Alice Shamreiz who design and produce the line between France & California. They draw their inspiration from classic French couture, it's overwhelmingly chic and sans bubblegum pink/ruffle overload - a breath of fresh air! They strive for simple lines, plaids & patterns, and ultimately comfort. Our one complaint is that they don't design for grown ups...

Alameda Flea Market

We are flea fanatics so finding our way to Alameda the first Sunday of the month is a must. Amongst this outdoor treasure trove is everything from antique furniture to clothing and accessories. It's the perfect pastime for vintage seekers and it's family friendly. The market is spread out on the Alameda waterfront overlooking San Francisco. There's a lot to see so make it a day trip and bring an appetite, it's chock-full of gourmet food trucks offering up every cuisine imaginable & kettle corn carts you can't avoid because it's aroma is undeniable. The next one falls on July 6th so be sure to mark your calendars!

Here are a few of our favorite finds from yesterday's excursion. 

Louie Award Winners!

The Louie Awards is an annual ceremony put on by the Greeting Card Association in honor of our fellow card producers. We have been lucky enough to be included in this fancy affair alongside our favorite designers.  Last year we were grateful to win an award in the Thanks category. This year we were claimed best in two categories, thanks & congrats, and received a final win for Card of The Year! It was a huge honor to be involved and an even bigger one to take home several awards! This left us with the obvious feeling of self-gratification and it’s all due to you guys, so thanks so much for all your support. You truly did make our day!

National Stationery Show!

We just got back from the National Stationery Show in New York & what a wonderful experience it was! Each year we are so impressed & inspired by all the wonderful new card designs. It truly is a smorgasbord of eye candy & we couldn't be happier to be a part of it. We attended a few lovely & carefully crafted soirees with our industry pals & the Louie Awards Gala where we brought in three awards with one Card of The Year Award for our Sunny Day card! It was a huge honor, especially when  surrounded by such talented people! 

Overall a complete success! Thanks to all you guys for all the support!
