About us

Formerly Beakbane's, three generations of Mattos engravers have been making hand-pressed stamps and engravings in Hawaii since 1900.  Throughout out the years, the "shop" has been located in several locations in downtown Honolulu. It has been in its current location for the over 30 years, moving only for a short time to South St. as the building was remodeled. Below are several pictures of the shop's location during the years.
