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.
You know what one of the perks is to owning your own letterpress business? Being able to print sweet, over the top business cards for yourself, that’s what! The other half of the Papillon Press team, illustrator Joel Kimmel, needed a business card to attend a conference so of course he designed and printed a fancy one, featuring his own illustrations and big, bold type.

Did you know you can customize Papillon Press cards? If you find one of our greeting cards would make a great birth announcement, party invitation, family Christmas card, business thank you card, etc. we can absolutely print an inside greeting in our cards to personalize it just for you (minimum quantities apply, obviously).
Westport parents Megan and Seamus thought our Baby Triceratops card would make a great birth announcement for their son Sam, so we printed a one colour greeting inside the card in a matching style.
