Some HPI Updates

♦ August is already almost over, which means it is almost the LA Printers Fair in Carson (August 29th), come see us there inside the Heritage Theater of the International Printing Museum 8am – 4pm.

♦ After a short wait, the post animal cards are back in stock. We will also be getting ready to bring out next years zoo calendars.

♦ We had a great time July 19th at our Origami crane event, with donations of the cranes to The Guild of Book Workers for their annual seminar banquet.We went straight into folding the paper cranes for 2 straight hours!

♦ Second week of July, conservator Mr. Sekichi and his wife visited from Japan. I was able to bring them to Pasadena to see The Gamble House(for the first time for all of us). We also took them to Disney Concert Hall to watch the “Bridging USA & Japan” concert (it was actually another first time for us).

Enjoying the bright sunny day

♦ While working with different sized paperwood for a customer, we have requested for samples of microwood veneers (0.10″) which are available to special order in rolls. We are working to get the samples displayable, meanwhile here are some woods that I liked especially:


Contact us for more details if interested.

♦ We received a request in the store last week for a Japanese textile conservator that could possibly repair her artwork she bought in Japan. That brought me to searching for local conservators online. The best way I have found was on the AIC website, under ‘find a local conservator’.

♦ We are making some progress on ordering Dynic SK bookcloths. Prices for rolls are out and we are going to be starting with special orders, so contact us if interested for more detail.

♦ Last but not least, check back at our online and retail store for the Back to School & Work sale starting August 24th.
