About HappyFinchStudio

Sales 874
On Etsy since 2017

Hi, I'm Daly, (rhymes with "Sally") and all my clothes are smudged with ink and paint.

My introduction to printmaking was over a decade ago as a graphic design student. I was fascinated as I printed on an old iron handpress using linocuts. From there I dived further into screenprinting, lithographs, and finally letterpress.

I dreamed of owning my own press, and designing my own cards with cute illustrations and quirky messages. I started printing officially in 2014 after acquiring my first press, a 5x8 U Kelsey. Since then, I've added an 8x12 NS C&P, and used the time between then and now to refine my ideas and prints.

Why greeting cards?
I was in a long-distance relationship with my then boyfriend (now significant other), and I couldn't find cards that suited the nerdy but awkwardly adorable message I wanted to send. So I drew my own and mailed them to him.

A lot of these cards are based off of designs I had sent him over our courtship. And I still present new ones to him every occasion, and doodles I shove in his face on random days to get a laugh.

Happy Finch Studio is operated out of our home studio where everything from design, photography and printing is carried out. Cards are printed in small batches to ensure quality control and to add a personal touch.

Why "Happy Finch"?
My husband and I enjoy putting up new bird feeders around our home. House finches swarm our front and back yard. I can hear them chirping away while I'm designing & printing, so I like to think that they're a part of the studio too.
