Portfolios for photographers, designers, and conservators.


It feels deceptively like summer here in Portland, Oregon. Like the cherry blossoms dotting the city, we've been sitting pretty under tranquil festoons of productivity.

This season we are debuting two specialized portfolio products: a book or a box to house your creative endeavors. 



Each is suited to different applications, with a small variety of elements to customize.

Please send us your questions with ideas or needs.

Pssst, we're working on a new website to launch later this fall. Keep your eyes peeled for the change brewing in our SE Portland studio!

Blind Debossing Books in Portland

Logos Imprinted on Book Covers

If custom made books are great, then personalized books are excellent! Here at HSS we have a handy Kwikprint Foil Stamper (named Winston), which we use to imprint logos and names on book covers (sorry, we are not able to deboss on any other items). We recently completed a job for R/West printing Bridgeport Brewing logos on beer journals. Our own debossed branding and a portrait of Winston are also below. Have a look!

Real Life Pinterest

Our Pinboards (but, you know, real)

When I moved into the studio with Molly in 2010, both of us made big, new bulletin boards for ourselves. We love being surrounded by inspiring pictures, art, notes, and ideas. Even as we scramble to find more space for supplies and books-in-progress, the thought of taking our boards down to make room for shelving seems sacrilegious. Thought we'd share them with you!
