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.
We’re back to our weekly Cuts & Caps with this fine image of a ship navigating the icy cold waters of the Atlantic. Better watch out for that giant iceberg.
Christmas is coming and we still have some Christmas cards available in our shop. If you order them today there’s still a good chance you can get them by Christmas. Or maybe you’re sending out some late greetings this year, and that’s okay too!
Just when you thought you’d seen everything letterpress can do, we went and made it 3D (glasses not included). This is no flimsy paper ornament!
We printed it on sturdy 300 gsm Legion Bamboo paper, then scored and assembled it by hand using only archival materials, so this ornament will stand the test of time and will not yellow. Even the beads were strung by hand! Chantal also designed and drew out the motif.
Looks pretty sharp in the Christmas tree, doesn’t it?
They are available for sale in our Etsy shop for $11.99. Order it quickly to receive it with time to spare before Christmas!
