Friendly, Professional & Quality

We got our invitation suite from Papillon Press and couldn鈥檛 be happier with it. From the initial meeting to communication thru drafts, color schemes and the final prints they were so responsive and helpful the entire time. I was so pleasantly surprised that their prices were so affordable for the quality and craftsmanship that shines thru. We鈥檝e gotten so many compliments and there is nothing that compares to the feeling of hand pressed prints.

Beautiful wedding invitations

Maddy at Papillon Press was fantastic to work without throughout our wedding process. Maddy helped us come up with customized invitation templates that fit our vision perfectly. Our invitations, menus, escort cards, and programs turned out beautifully and we could not have been happier with the results. Thank you Maddy!

The best wedding invitation find!

My husband and I used Papillon Press for our wedding last summer. I found Madeleine when I was in desperate need of help, and she was absolutely incredible. Madeleine set a defined path, timeline, and was extremely responsive anytime I reached out. It was truly a white glove service experience. Madeleine worked with my ideas and brought them to life on the finest quality paper. I love the tradition of printing that鈥檚 maintained with Papillon Press. I highly recommend them! You will not be disappointed.

Vernon is the Grand Rapids half of the team, and the letterpress expert. He's been working as a historical bookbinder alongside Papillon Press for the last 25 years, and we are so thankful for his expertise in all things antique machinery! He's also a design pro too of course. In his free time, he likes to take his dog on long walks, read a book in his big chair by the fireplace, or naturally, make something!
