vintage stationery shop clipboard


Vintage Stationery Shop Clipboard, hifrienddesign.comI picked up this clipboard on a whim at an antique store in Vancouver, Washington over the holidays. The assorted wood tones had me smitten. Plus, who doesn’t love an authentic relic of Seattle? I finally got around to googling the company name it’s branded with and found some terrific examples of advertising from the early 1900s. (My clipboard could have been in the shop the day they took that photo!)

Vintage Stationery Shop Clipboard,

Isn’t it lovely? I’m not sure how I feel about stationery as a WEAPON, but I am sure that the fact that this clipboard came from a stationery shop confirms that it was meant for me!

Sweet & Free Life / Stamped Stationery for Tenley Molzahn


Tenley Molzahn Stamped Stationery,

The oh-so-sweet Tenley Molzahn has been one of my Clark & Co. clients for the past year and we¬†just wrapped up some of her big branding pieces last month. (So exciting!) The work I’ve been doing with her hasn’t overlapped much with what I do over here at hi, friend design, but I have to share the little package of stamped stationery I sent her way. It’s another great example of how you can turn some very plain cards and envelopes into custom stationery.

The splash of pink on the bright white is so darn cute. What do you think? Would you be up for stamping out your own custom stationery with one of our personal stamps?

a new stamp for an old friend


Personalized four-initial stamp,

One of my many funny, beautiful and precious friends turned thirty last month. “A new stamp for an old friend.” Get it!? Har, har. I tried clicking my heels together to get myself to her fabulously fun party in Portland, but that didn’t work, so I made her a celebratory stamp. She’s unique in so many ways, but one of them is that she has two middle names. I got to thinking that there are certainly many others in the same boat, whether they have two middle names, two last names or four of any kind of name! So, I’d like to introduce our very first four-initial stamp: the Small Loveli Stamp.

Personalized four-initial stamp,

By the way, this would be perfect for a four-person family, too.

If you’d like this stamp in its self-inking version, it’s $31 —>

For this stamp as a wood-mount with knob, it’s only $25 —>
