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 had been in its last location for over 30 years, moving only for a short time to South St. as the building was remodeled. The "shop" has now moved to its current location on the internet.
Below are several pictures of the shop's location during the years.
Today, you can find us on the internet.
