getting started with custom letterpress wedding invitations

there's something timeless and romantic about letterpress printed invitations. each piece is done by hand on centuries-old machines, transforming paper into a reflection of each couple's personality. 

letterpress invitations have a memorizing, tactile feel to them. your fingers can trace the precise impression of letters against soft, handmade paper. what a way to celebrate your joyous occasion.

we offer many wedding suites to serve as starting points for your invitations - each portion of these invitations can be customized, from colors to paper to foil to edging. additions like wax seals and twin provide even more options to express yourself.

in addition to our suites, our designs will also work with you to create a completely unique design. if you have custom art, we can incorporate it, or work with you to design something special.




the invitation process:

  1. review our suites, options, and pricing to see if oblation papers & press is a fit for your wedding

  2. request an in-store consultation if you are in the portland area to see the suites in person, or find a representative with our wedding book near you.
    alternatively, request paper and suite samples to get a feel for the invitations.

  3. if you wish, order paper and suite samples to get a literal feel for the invitation options.

  4. request a quote and order a digital proof

from that point on, you and a dedicated designer from the oblation team will work together over phone or email to refine your invitations until they are perfect.

once approved, your invitation design will be sent to our printing press and assembly team.

generally, from start to finish, this process takes four weeks from the initial consultation to receiving your finished invitations. rush service is available upon request.
