about

HOUR OF NINE is a creative shop based in the heart of New York City. Founded by Lehua Chong, our designs are inspired by the eccentric people, places and happenstances that fill our lives with joy. Whether hand-glittered or letterpressed, our fine stationery is crafted with love. All of our products feature original artwork on luxurious but most importantly, eco-friendly papers. We hope our sassy little cards inspire you to send a loved one a thank you, congratulations, or a "waassuupp?" in the near future.

A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Lehua is also an alumna of Manhattan's fierce and fast paced world of public relations where she oversaw branding, media campaigns and special events for some of the biggest names in fashion, art and entertainment. In 2009, she decided to pursue a new direction and began focusing on graphics, often sending handmade postcards to cheer up friends on dreary work days. One card after another turned into this little gig right here. Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, Lehua currently resides in New York City with her main muse, a deaf Japanese Chin named Ernesto.
