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 very pleased that Joel’s popular Troublemakers series made it on Crane & Co. Top 5 of 2011 list! Joel originally illustrated these cards to be used as a promo run to art directors, but they were so fantastic that we turned them into a Papillon Press illustrated set, which you can buy here.
Yes, we were finally discovered in our hometown! The National Post discovered us first but hey, who’s keeping track 😉 This article appeared in the Sudbury Star and, although a fine article, features one of the most unflattering photos of Chantal ever taken (she’s writing this wondering where her chin went).
Could this mean we finally get a Sudbury client? Not yet, but you never know!
This is a fantastic business card we printed a few weeks ago for makeup artist Karissa. She wanted the swash of colour to as bright as it could be so we took the ink straight from the can. We were also thrilled when she requested edge-painting, which is something we don’t get to do too often. The red border really made the content of the card “pop”.
We were also very happy to receive an email from Karissa’s sister Brittany saying this:
“My sister was so proud to hand [the cards] out at the tradeshow and mostly everyone commented on how gorgeous they are. “
See, letterpress business cards are a good investment! Thanks Karissa and Brittany!
Printed on Crane Lettra, 300 gsm, pearl white in 2 colours with matching edge-painting.
