Satsuma Press is a one-person letterpress and design studio located in Corvallis, Oregon, that produces exquisitely delicate, yet modern letterpress products. “I fancy good, simple design that is pleasing to the eye and mind; refreshing color and lush paper; plenty of open space and quiet, graceful beauty.” (As always, click to shop!)
DOZI is a small, San Francisco based design studio run by Wendy Chung. Wendy began her career in engineering, but found herself increasingly fascinated by design, patterns and color. After a few classes and a lot of exploring, she found a love for bringing her patterns to life on stationery and home goods.
