welcome to our little corner
FOLIO PRESS & PAPERIE is a letterpress design studio, full service print shop and fine gift store located in Santa Barbara, CA. We strive to promote a return to a slower, friendlier, more reflective and tactile world through letterpress stationery. We seek to promote other small business and American made products in our retail selection.
All folio press & paperie letterpress goods are printed on our Heidleberg Windmill presses from the 1950s and 60s or our 1924 treadle-powered Chandler & Price platen press. Along with our hand-drawn designs, we utilize antique wood and lead type as well as retro icons. All of our letterpress cards are packaged using compostable sleeves. By mid-2021 we will begin transitioning to natural paper packaging for all boxed stationery products!
