folio press and paperie strives to inspire connections and understanding of self, others, and environment through intentional hand-drawn design, lettering, and fine print media.
Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, folio’s home in Santa Barbara, CA is a gateway to some of the most beautiful natural spaces in California. As these precious spaces are challenged by our changing climate and increasingly drastic weather patterns, we encourage you to take note of the stately creatures surrounding your community as well. From the bear and the oak, the ridge and the wave, the moose and the moon, the pebble and the poppy, we celebrate all.
All folio products are designed and printed in-house using our 1953 and 1969 Heidelberg Windmills and 1924 treadle-powered Chandler & Price platen presses. We try hard to care of our planet the best we can while being in the world of paper and printing. All our shipping packaging is recycled from shipments our retail store receives. We are switching over to compostable sleeves as we run out of our current stock. And our Tails Notecards are printed on the left over scraps of paper from other print jobs, both in-house and custom. Through thoughtful gifts, inspiration for the written word, decorative beauty, and high-quality items that last, folio’s goal is to foster connections between moms, sons, friends, coworkers, dads, grandparents, sisters, partners, and everyone in between.
