Papillon Press is a letterpress and illustration studio located in Westport, Ontario, Canada that specializes in illustrated greeting cards and paper goods. Our greeting cards, note cards, gift tags, thank you cards, stickers, etc. all feature our hand-drawn illustrations and are printed by hand on our 60 year-old letterpress.
Here is another custom invitation suite we did for Emily and Greg. The criteria for this one was to have a classic motif in two colours, so we went for a lighter, cleaned up Victorian motif. The map features custom illustrations of both the church where Emily and Greg will be marrying and their reception venue.
Printed in two colours on pearl white 100% cotton Crane Lettra.
Thanks to Emily and Greg for taking our ideas and letting us run with it! Congratulations!
This is a custom invitation we did for Katie and Peter. This is a good example of our à la carte pricing, which allows couples to pick and choose pieces to suit their budget. Katie and Peter really loved letterpress, but couldn’t afford to get their whole set through us, therefore they opted to have only the announcement and the outer envelope done by us.
We were very glad to hear that they wanted an illustration-heavy invitation, since that’s our specialty! They wanted a large tree with lots of foliage to fill most of the page.
This two-colour invitation is printed in 2 shades of grey on pearl white 100% cotton Crane Lettra and features deckled edges!
Joel and I are back from our honeymoon/road trip through Maine. It was a great trip, despite some areas being literally clogged with tourists (what is it about beaches that make people lose their minds?). We went on a Wyeth pilgrimage, saw illustrations in person that blew us away and had a chance to visit Christina Olson’s house, which was a definite highlight of the trip.
We also had the chance to sit down a few times for some sketching:
