About

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 our retail space one will find Italian correspondence stationery, fine fountain pens and distinctive paper from around the world, and so much more. 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.

    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!
