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 are often asked if we can print bilingual or foreign language wedding invitations…the answer is a resounding YES!
Steven send along this very cute illustrated Chinese/English invitation for us to print, the first we’ve ever printed. This invitation was such a piece of cake to print, we could hardly believe how laid back Claudette the Press was about it all (she’s usually quite fussy).
We were so happy to have our third local couple this year, Ben and Melanie, find us and hire us to do their wedding invitations. They chose our Filigree design, printed in lavender and blind deboss, with rounded corners.
We will be out of the studio for a short break to celebrate Chantal’s 30th birthday on Mackinac Island, MI. We’re stepping back in time and will not be able to answer emails or phone calls until our return on August 15th.
Not too long ago, we had the pleasure of working with wedding planner Tania of Dolce Weddings to help create invitations for her clients, Margaret and Jason, who were planning their destination wedding in Italy. Tania sent us a basic design for the invitation, and we helped her refine it and make it letterpress-ready.
