Fresh designs, printed one at a time by hand in our Portland, OR Pearl District letterpress print shop. Whether you're looking for event invites, RSVP sets, coasters, business cards, or any creative print solution, let us help you bring your idea to life!

Letterpress printing reflects an era of quality and craftsmanship. This historic method of printing uses raised type and images, inked and pressed into the surface of heavy papers. Sheets are fed one at a time, by hand into cast iron platen presses. Some presses in our letterpress studio date back over 100 years.

Our process begins with original designs, tailored to your occasion. For each order our production staff creates individual plates on location, prints with soy based inks, and finishes every piece by hand. We offer a selection of wedding invitation and business card templates.

Our concerns for conservation affect everything we do, including our design process. To reduce waste, we've provided a line of wedding invitations with a single envelope and RSVP postcard. Our digital design department provides several environmentally friendly paper options, and prints using solid ink technology, which generates approximately 90% less waste than typical color printers. We use soy inks, citrus solvents, and antique presses that will likely outlive us all!

We are happy to assist you with customer-provided artwork. Our in-house design team is available to collaborate with you in creating something truly unique. To receive a quote for a custom order, fill our our form here or contact us at retail@oblationpapers.com.
