Purr-fect Birthday Greeting Card by Egg Press Manufacturing
Have a purr-fect birthday!
This A2 4.25" x 5.5" blank letterpress printed card was designed by HELLO!LUCKY in San Francisco, California and printed by Egg Press Manufacturing of Portland, Oregon. Kraft envelope included.
Hello!Lucky was founded by sisters Eunice Moyle and Sabrina Moyle in 2003 in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Hello!Lucky was inspired by Eunice and Sabrina’s childhood, which was spent living abroad in Asia and Africa, where we were exposed to crafts, entrepreneurship, and pop cultures from around the world. Through our travels and the positive influence of our parents, we adopted a positive, open-minded perspective that embraces diversity, celebrates humor as the ultimate way to connect and get through hard times, recognizes our interdependence, and values creativity, connection and community.
Our business got started when Eunice, an artist, learned how to use a letterpress and got hooked on the beautiful quality of letterpress printing. She bought her first press on eBay and started printing cards in her somewhat leaky Oakland, California garage.
Sabrina, a non-profit arts and education advocate with a business background, soon joined in to support her sister’s budding business. Hello!Lucky introduced its first letterpress card collection in 2003 at the National Stationery Show in New York City.
From 2005 - 2013, Hello!Lucky served as a pioneer in the wedding industry, offering creatively designed letterpress wedding invitations and helping hundreds of brides design their dream weddings.
In 2013, Hello!lucky left the wedding industry to become a design studio, partnering with fellow woman-owned and -run business, Egg Press. This allowed Eunice and Sabrina to balance their business with their growing families. With the help of Moxie & Company, they began partnering with like-minded businesses to extend beyond greeting cards into home accessories, bedding, and more.
Hello!Lucky also began focusing on giving back to the community, initially through partnering with Egg Press on the Write On Campaign, and later through creating products and books that give back. Sabrina served as a small business advocate during the Obama administration, leading to an invitation to join President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at a State Dinner honoring Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
In 2018, Hello!Lucky published its first children’s books, My Mom is Magical! and My Dad is Amazing! with Abrams Appleseed. Instant successes with over 400,000 copies in print, these books have led to over 15 children’s book titles and over 1 million books sold to date. With children’s books, Eunice and Sabrina have realized a childhood dream and found their ideal medium, whey they delight in supporting, inspiring, entertaining, educating, and empowering children and families.
