Hi, I'm Sloan! Owner, artist and creator of Shoji Note. The cut paper creations that started Shoji Note were originally one of a kind gifts for family and friends. The only change since then is a hand operated die cut press that allows me to share my quirky puns and adorable illustrations with you. Shoji Note greeting cards are still lovingly handcrafted one at a time. I personally print, die cut and hand finish each one individually in my Portland, Oregon studio.
Where did the name “Shoji Note” come from? Shoji screens are traditional Japanese room dividers that are covered in rice paper to allow filtered light through. The cutout windows of Shoji Note cards allow you to see through the layers. This gives the cards similar characteristics to translucent folding screens. Some of the cards even incorporate rice paper into the designs.
Thank you for visiting!
