My favourite shop visit in SF had to be popping into the HQ of letterpress studio Hello Lucky and seeing their lovely team at work.
We saw the huge vintage letterpress machines in action downstairs…
…before heading upstairs to see the in-house design and customer service team at work. We were shown some of their wedding invitation commissions and perused the rest of their gorgeous stock. Isn’t their studio pretty?
Hello Lucky work with loads of illustration partners including my favourites Tom Frost, Kate Sutton and Lab Partners. I brought home one of these darling prints by Julia Rothman as well as a couple of Christmas presents.
I also didn’t realise until now that they have a London office (though all the work is done in SF) so if you’re in need of stationery or invitations, give them a bell or check out their wares in Liberty.
