Oblation Papers and Press

Oblation Papers and Press owns and operates one of the few hand paper mills in North America. They specialize in letterpress printing on paper made by hand in their Pearl District letterpress print shop. Most of the cards have a deckle edge–a rough/torn looking edge–naturally formed during the sheet formation process. The paper is 100% recycled cotton that is produced with remnants from the garment industry. It is archival and acid free. This paper is perfectly suited for letterpress printing.

The Oblation print shop uses raised type and images in antique presses to make an elegant impression on the surface of each hand-fed sheet. They print with soy based inks. Invitations are hand-crafted and custom designed with original illustrations.

In addition to their own collection, Oblation offers many other invitation options from boutique designers around the country. They also offer a fast flat print option for budget minded customers who need small quantities or quick turn time.
