Let­ter bug

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

hen was the last time you put pen to pa­per? Or re­ceived a hand­writ­ten let­ter or card? Too long ago to re­mem­ber? Printer & Co, a Hong Kong-based sup­plier of ex­cep­tional hand­crafted sta­tionery founded re­cently by Jacqueline and Evan Chow along with five other en­trepreneurs, is here to change that. The story be­gan in early 2015 when the group ac­quired and re­fur­bished a 1950s print­ing press. They then trained crafts­men to op­er­ate the ma­chin­ery and pro­duce hand­printed note­cards, jour­nals, gift tags, greet­ing cards and other items on eth­i­cally sourced, top-qual­ity pa­per and cards. “In this fast-paced world, we wanted to bring back an el­e­ment of slow liv­ing,” ex­plains CEO and co-founder Bon­nie Chan. “We would like to cel­e­brate crafts­man­ship, and see peo­ple put down their tablets ev­ery now and then. There is noth­ing more per­sonal, nor more pleas­ing to the re­cip­i­ent, than a hand­writ­ten thankyou card or let­ter.” The luxe prod­ucts are pro­duced by skilled crafts­men at Printer & Co’s ate­lier in Quarry Bay.

hong kong can­cer Fund Ball Robert and Sally Lo’s an­nual Can­cer Fund Ball is a high­light of the so­cial cal­en­dar, the black-tie event that sets the scene for Chi­nese New Year cel­e­bra­tions. This year’s ball will be held at the Kai Tak Cruise Ter­mi­nal on Jan­uary 30, and we can’t wait to see how the guests in­ter­pret the theme— Chine de Chine. Sil­vio Bergé is spear­head­ing the de­sign, so it’s bound to be a land­mark event. The ball is the Hong Kong Can­cer Fund’s big­gest fundraiser of the year—and thus is vi­tal in en­sur­ing the fund can con­tinue to of­fer free in­for­ma­tion and pro­fes­sional sup­port to any­one liv­ing with or af­fected by can­cer.
