This fall we had the pleasure of working with a team at the Top of the Mark at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel for a special photo shoot. As such an iconic hotel with deep San Francisco history, we were thrilled to create a custom skyline invitation for the event. Our San Francisco Skyline is packed with significant imagery, but one thing was missing for this Nob Hill destination. We created a new icon for the mix and included the Top of the Mark peaking above our lovely city by the bay.
If you haven’t been to the Top of the Mark, it’s a must for visitors and city dwellers. Their views are some of the best in the city, and the bar makes a delicious cocktail.
Can you see the difference? We love having the Mark Hopkins in our Skyline!
These photos by Rien van Rijthoven of Architecture Photography capture the magic of the Mark Hopkins so well. With elegant tablescapes and jaw-dropping views, this venue makes any event a dream.
Thanks to the Top of the Mark for such a fun project and to Rien van Rijthoven for the beautiful images!
It’s a beautiful day for a new window display! We decided to get crafty and enlarge our San Francisco Skyline into full-sized window art. Throughout the process we learned first hand that paper cutting is a true test of patience and craftsmanship. First, we drew the skyline on 3 full sheets of pool colored text weight paper. Then with a ruler and craft knife, carefully followed the lines revealing our cityscape.
The bridges were definitely the most difficult, but they are the most iconic!
Double-sided tape did the trick – we hung the skyline so it greets the passers-by on Howard Street.
The final product! What do you think? We had so much fun paper cutting this skyline we also made an SFMade sign which Jon is holding here. Can you tell we’re getting excited for our big event tomorrow?
Our brand new letterpress greeting cards are hot off the presses and arrived just in time for spring! We’ve got smashing new designs by Esther Aarts, Julia Rothman, and yours truly. We’ve taken a new spin off our popular BBQ Parade Father’s Day card and created Thanks a Brunch, and Julia’s Better With Age card speaks simply the truth – we are especially fond of this card being so close to wine country!
Our wedding Skyline series is such a hit we couldn’t wait to offer letterpress skyline cards for all our favorite cities! San Francisco, New York City, and London are all available now but there are more to come! Also making it’s big debut is our bright and cheerful Visit Seattle card.

Hooray! The new website is live and we’ve gotten some amazing feedback so far! Although the site is shiny and new, there are still a few kinks we have to sort out. It’s taken a lot of work and many hands to make the website what it is now, but we assure you, there is more to come!
Many of our designs are still being configured – mainly the Skyline series that we all love so much.
