Lana Lane Studios would like to extend a warm welcome to one of our newest members, Jiwa Jiwa Press! A letterpress printing company founded and operated by Cherish Prado-Sherman. Jiwa Jiwa Press was established in the heart of Portland, Oregon in 2009. After living in the Pacific Northwest for a decade, Jiwa Jiwa Press returned to Honolulu, Hawai’i to put some roots back down in her hometown. This print shop was founded with every intention to create beautifully designed and letterpress printed paper goods.
Letterpress is a labor of love. Every project is printed by hand (and foot) with antique presses that are well over a hundred years old. Jiwa Jiwa roughly translates in Japanese to: “slowly, but surely” or “little by little.” This has been an ongoing mantra for this little print shop, especially when tackling as many exciting projects as possible…and all at once!
