our story MISSIVE is a San Francisco letterpress studio founded by designer Lisa Willis in 2008, when a creative outlet became a passion. With a mission to bring stylish correspondence to mailboxes everywhere, the offerings have expanded to include greeting cards, social stationery, announcements and more. What began as a one-woman operation has evolved into a husband and wife team—Lisa creates new designs for their collections while husband Gregory skillfully runs the presses at their Treasure Island studio. Each piece is handprinted on antique presses dating from 1912, using luxurious cotton and recycled content papers. With a less-is-more aesthetic and a focus on elegant letterforms, vintage imagery and classic design, our collection of charming letterpress cards and social stationery is intended to delight both the writer and the recipient. We hope our letterpress goods continue to brighten someone’s day, every day.
