About Us

Why Papillon Press?

Let’s be honest: we’re not the oldest, cheapest, fanciest or biggest letterpress studio in the world. We’re located in Westport, Ontario, Canada so we’re probably not local either. But here’s what we are:

Committed to taking artistry and craftsmanship seriously and spreading the good word of letterpress.

At Papillon Press we consider ourselves artists, not just printers. Our designs focus on illustration, not typography. We don’t use stock imagery. We draw all our design by hand (in pen & ink). We don’t outsource any of our production process. We print it all on our handfed CP & Co. letterpress. We do it all in-house, ourselves.

Although we might never meet our clients in person, you will feel like we know you by the end of the process. Our email etiquette is stellar, punctual (we always respond a.s.a.p) and friendly (yes that might include smiley faces). We will go out of our way to accommodate you while being reasonable and fair.

So whether you buy one of our products or hire us to print one your designs, rest assured that artistry and craftsmanship were the number one focus in the making of your letterpress goods.
