Debut Issue • No. 1 • 2014


Our Labor of Love Lilikoi Design + Letterpress is a graphic design and letterpress printing studio founded in 2007, providing letterpress work using hand operated presses. Letterpress and foil printing projects are offered with custom artwork created by Lilikoi as well as artwork provided by their clients. Projects include wedding invitations, business cards, stationery, menus, hang tags and baby announcements. In addition to custom work, Lilikoi Design + Letterpress proudly launched a retail collection in 2014, inspired by the simple joy of giving and receiving handwritten notes.

It’s All in the Details The important practices within the studio culture keep Lilikoi unique. This is achieved by staying true to the traditional art of letterpress, which involves mixing inks and printing by hand with 100% cotton paper that is specifically made for letterpress. Lilikoi believes the press will produce outstanding work with the best combination of design, materials, patience and a talented operator. This is also achieved with the love and attention to detail they pour into their products and the amazing clients they get to know. This comes naturally due to the combination of custom projects and the variety of capabilities offered by Lilikoi.

A Note from the Studio Since we opened our doors in 2007 we have grown steadily by creating and producing custom projects, running our studio w  ith sustainable practices and using high quality, carefully chosen materials made in the USA. We are dedicated to provide outstanding service and work closely with each client to create a unique and beautiful product. In 2011 we expanded our Los Angeles location with a second studio location in San Francisco, which offers private lessons and group workshops—perfect for the hands-on, inquisitive artist community. Our custom offerings have been recognized in a wide variety o  f online, television and print media outlets such as Martha Stewart Weddings, Lucky Magazine, The Today Show and the blog Oh So Beautiful Paper. We introduce our retail collection with great pride—in hopes it will be received with an open heart by those who share in the love of letterpress and the art of the handwritten note. —Andria Sato, Owner & Creative Director

Say Hello to Peach Our circa 1889 letterpress—manually operated with patience and love. Peach is our oldest press and lives in our San Francisco studio. She runs beautifully (although she does have her moments) and is what we use for our custom work, classes and workshops.

8 • Meet Peach lilikoi-design.com


Our Commitment to Sustainability Our process is carefully thought out, keeping both quality and our Mother Earth in mind—we take pride in how we run our studios. Our oldest press was born in 1889 and is a beauty. We run our presses manually, without the use of electricity, staying true to the original art of letterpress. We hand mix our vegetable based inks that omit minimal air pollutants and clean our presses using natural solvents. They are gentle on both our skin and the environment. We use 100% tree-free, reclaimed cotton paper which is recyclable and renewable. Cotton is an annual crop and requires very few natural resources and energy to grow and make into paper, unlike wood or bamboo. It is luxurious and the most perfect complement to letterpress printing. We are committed to proper disposal. We recycle every scrap piece of paper and old plates. We also use cloth rags for clean up.

Our Commitment to Sustainability • 9 lilikoi-design.com


Our Process Letterpress is the oldest form of printing and requires a raised image which is pressed into paper, making a relief impression that is tactile and beautiful. We truly embrace the art form by using materials such as our ink and paper that are specifically made for letterpress.

Digital Artwork + Printing Plates The basic theory of letterpress printing has remained the same over the past five centuries, but modern technology has allowed us to combine digital layout with traditional printing. This allows us the opportunity to create custom artwork on the computer and process it into a plate to be used on the press.

Ink is Custom Mixed Our ink is vegetable oil based, omitting minimal air pollutants. It is mixed by hand (for each job) and applied to the press where it is then distributed evenly with rubber rollers.

10 • Our Process lilikoi-design.com


Artwork Setup + Registration We set the artwork (printing plate) by hand on a metal base which sits opposite of the paper on the press, set the paper in place and manually start the press with a foot pedal. The raised image area on the plate is inked by the rollers and an impression is applied by pulling on a lever.

Printing While each individual piece is fed in the press one at a time, only one color is on press at a time. If there is a two-color piece, it is fed in the press two times. Once the ink is dry, all the paper gets a final trim or is custom die cut and is inspected for quality before delivery.

NOTES FOR EVERYDAY Flourish & Whim Collection | A2 Folded + Mini | Single + Box Set of 6 This collaboration was created with the incredibly talented owner of Flourish & Whim out of our mutual love for letterpress and calligraphy. We had a desire to offer a collection of celebratory cards, intended to be used throughout the year that combined Julie’s hand lettering talents with a very graphic pattern in fresh colors.

CUSTOM PROJECTS Our custom projects give us the pleasure of working with both individuals and businesses on a wide variety of projects. We carefully select fine materials and work closely with extraordinary people, which has allowed us to achieve a wonderful reputation. From our initial consultation to delivery, we are involved in every detail—which is something we will provide to our retailers. Our custom projects include everything from wedding invitations, hang tags, stationery, product packaging and holiday cards. We hold a true love for working with blushing brides and handsome grooms on their wedding invitations and day of printed materials. We encourage couples who are interested in our services to view our work in person so they can see and feel for themselves how special and luxurious letterpress can be. The invitation suite sets the tone for such a special event, so working individually with each couple and discussing the details that go into such a special day allows for a truly unique invitation suite. We are fortunate to work with businesses and collaborate with them on items that will improve the value of their products, like a letterpress printed hang tag. Little details make such a big impact­—when introducing yourself with a tangible, beautifully printed business card or writing a thank you note to a customer, it’s personal and memorable. We find great joy in working with families during the holidays to create holiday cards that incorporate a photo. This is one of our favorite projects because every family is so unique and the photos really bring the card to life. Our printing services extend to designers as well. We guide them through the printing process and provide them with paper and ink options to print their artwork in the best way possible.

What We Can Offer You Let’s collaborate! You know your shop the best—let’s work together to create products exclusive for your shop, such as stationery or greeting cards, gift tags, limited edition prints or packaging.
