25 Days of Paper 2015, Day 11

When I moved to Portland, OR in the late 1990’s, I worked part-time at Oblation Papers & Press, a gorgeous stationery store in the Pearl District with a production paper mill and a full-blown letterpress shop – a must-see when visiting the Pacific Northwest!

Oblation Papers & Press produces handmade paper stationery, custom wedding invitations and these pure cotton full-deckled handmade paper shapes, fashioned one-at-a-time, where they employ traditional 19th century techniques to make sheets of cotton paper by hand using recycled remnants from the garment industry. These papers are strong, acid-free and perfectly suited for letterpress printing.
