Oblation Papers & Press

25 Days of Paper 2016, Day 8


Oblation Papers & Press is an urban paper mill, letterpress print shop and old-world paper boutique in Portland, Oregon, whose studios are on view for those who visit their shop in the Pearl District.


At Oblation Papers & Presspaper is made by hand every day. Recycled cotton fibers from the garment industry are pulled from the vat with moulds and deckles of various shapes and sizes, then letterpress printed, before making their way out into the hands of those who love the textures and rough edges of tangible things.


Oblation Papers & Press is offering a free letterpress printed ‘Merry Christmas’ handmade paper tree card with every online purchase through December 15th.

It is easy to get lost in the pages of the gorgeous website! Here are a few treasures that I discovered, but there are many, many more!

I love the line of blind embossed white handmade paper salutations.


Check out these sweet 5.75 x 7.75 inch journals printed letterpress on cream handmade paper cover with a deckled edge and Japanese stab-bound (100 lined pages).


Grab a few of these unique seed paper thank you notes printed one-color letterpress on plantable handmade seed paper with deckled edges.

  1. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content
    I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
