Lilikoi Design + Letterpress is a graphic design and letterpress printing studio based in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California. The studio was founded by Andria Sato in 2007 out of a love for the handmade and tactile beauty of letterpress printing. Lilikoi offers both custom projects and a retail collection of cards, stationery, gift tags and art prints created using hand operated presses and the finest materials.

A Note from the Studio After producing custom projects for 7 years, our time to grow and introduce a retail collection was upon us in May of 2014—I could not be more proud of what we have accomplished in this first year while maintaining our custom project schedule and keeping focus on the integrity of our business. Launching our retail line has allowed us to connect with a new audience and share the cherished experience of giving and receiving a handwritten note. We have worked hard to build personal relationships along with our brand—and we are only getting started. Our first year has brought us so much joy—the response to our products has been incredible. We were featured in the Ladies of Letterpress publication, were recognized in a wide variety of online, television and print media outlets, and our Balloon Animal Collection earned a Louie Award Nomination for Letterpress. We also continue to stay connected with the community by hosting workshops in our San Francisco studio, participating in wedding industry events and collaborating on styled photo shoots. We hope to continue strengthening our relationships with current retailers and reaching out to many new faces, so that our growing collection may be received with an open heart by those who share in the love of letterpress and the art of the handwritten note. Let’s celebrate every day! —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.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Our process is thoughtful. Maintaining product quality while protecting our Mother Earth will always be a top priority. We take pride in how we run our studios. Our oldest press ‘Peach’ was born in 1889 and is a classic beauty. We run our presses manually, without the use of electricity, staying true to the original art of letterpress. Our vegetable based inks are hand mixed and omit minimal air pollutants. Additionally, we clean our presses using natural solvents in an effort to be 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 requiring very few natural resources and minimal energy to grow and make into paper, unlike wood or bamboo. It has a luxurious feel and perfectly complements letterpress printing. We are committed to responsible disposal, recycling each scrap piece of paper and old plate. We also use cloth rags for clean up, rather than disposable paper products. Running a sustainable studio and making a conscious effort to be resourceful is just as important to us as the attention to detail and the quality that goes into our products. We feel that our efforts to make an impact can go a long way.

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

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.

The collection of folded notes, flat stationery, frame-worthy prints, small notes, and gift tags was created to express our love for handmade products and to encourage the art of the handwritten note. All products are not only made by hand in this labor intensive, original art form—they are one of a kind and beautifully tactile. They are sure to stand out amongst other printed items and to inspire us all to write more love notes.

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.
