our staff of designers and printers have been creating beautiful, custom wedding invitations for nearly three decades in portland, oregon for clients across the country. for each order, our production staff creates individual plates on location, prints with soy-based inks, and finishes every piece by hand.

we are excited to work with you on a custom order that is tailored to your specific needs! our team creates your order from start to finish in our portland store and we are here to help in person, through email, or over the phone. our samples serve as starting points for your orders, but there are myriad ways to make your letterpress order your own. each portion of our samples can be customized, from paper to ink colors to typeface. try overlapping two inks to make a third color, incorporate a foil element into your design, or do a blind impression with no ink at all. your letterpress order can be as simple or as detailed as you like. we offer a variety of paper options, ranging from text weight to 4 ply. we also offer a soft, textured paper that we make in house. this handmade paper is available with 4 deckle edges. if you're ordering invitations, additions like wax seals, twine, and vellum jackets are a great way to make them extra special.

Unmatched invitation quality

Oblation knocked our invitations out of the park. The process itself was fun and they were able to tackle any request. As a Graphic Designer, it was super easy to create a layout and design that they then created perfectly. The quality of our final invitation was amazing and is a element of our wedding that we will truly cherish.

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!
