About Oblation Papers & Press

Oblation Papers & Press is an old-world letterpress print shop specializing in custom wedding invitations, baby announcements, bar and bat mitzvah invitations and social stationery. Our letterpress invitations are printed on recycled cotton handmade paper that we produce in our urban paper mill. Come visit our fine European-style stationery boutiques located in Portland, Oregon.

At Oblation Papers & Press, we use traditional techniques to produce 100% cotton sheets of paper by hand. Our paper is strong, acid-free and produced with remnants from the garment industry. This paper is perfectly suited for letterpress printing. We use raised type and images in antique presses to make an elegant impression on the surface of each hand-fed sheet. Ron and Jennifer Rich founded Oblation Papers & Press in 1989. Nine years later they opened a retail venue in Portland's blossoming Pearl District, formerly an industrial area that is now a lively mix of art galleries, inventive restaurants and unique shops.

In the retail space one will find Italian correspondence stationery, fine fountain pens and distinctive paper from around the world. In addition to an assortment of eclectic gift items, Oblation Papers & Press also carries French wax seals, a wide selection of photo albums and journals, raw materials for bookbinding, designer office supplies, and an unrivaled selection of handmade greeting cards.

We hope you love what you see here. It would be a pleasure to work with you in creating the design that you envision for your life events.

    I could not image working with anyone else on our wedding invitations. Oblation delivered exactly what I wanted and fast. As a graphic artist myself I was hesitant to put our invitation designs in someone else's hands, but the girls at Oblation understood exactly what I wanted and were so fantastic to work with. The design, quality and professionalism all contribute to an excellent experience. We will be using them for our programs, menus and escort cards as well!

    I was lucky enough to work with Oblation for my wedding invitations and RSVP cards - and boy, was that a blessing! Oblation was amazing from start to finish - super helpful, genuinely nice, and always ready to accommodate and eager to please! It doesn't get much better than that when you are trying to decide on stationary that not only represents your ideal wedding, but you and your partner as well. They nailed it, and our guests LOVED our invitations. They called them timeless, classic, and romantic, yet unique and clearly a representation of me and my fiance. SCORE! I'd be more than happy to do business with them again in the future!!!
