Letterpress Love

I would’ve called this one another vendor spotlight if it weren’t for the fact that I just had vendor spotlight yesterday. Let me just start off by saying that I truly wouldn’t have a vendor up on my blog if I couldn’t vouch for it!

Introducing Papeterie!

Taken from their site, here is what they are about.

We are a design studio made up of a team of talented artists, graphic designers and people who all share a love for paper, typography, and great design. Our vision is to offer you custom, unique, and innovative stationery with the ease and comfort of ordering online, therefore not paying for the high prices often found at stationery stores. Led by Creative Director Kimberly Chiu and inspired by textile patterns, Papeterie’s designers create all of the stationery pieces seen on the site.

I had the pleasure of going to Papeterie’s open house last night and meeting a lot of great people. I was invited by Kim, the owner and met the blood and sweat of letterpressing, her husband. They have this awesome, vintage, steampunk era looking letterpressing called the Heidelberg. Sounds monstruous doesn’t it? I should’ve taken pictures but I was in awe and actually letterpressed myself!

Here’s a look at an old Heidelberg.

Papeterie owns a newer version but it still looks as vintage as this one!

If you’re looking for some good letterpressed love, visit them online or visit them at their newly opened shop in Monterey Park, CA.

Wanna see what I made?

Sorry for the crappy picture, but isn’t it pretty? We got to take home what we made and am now skillfully thinking who I’ll write to with this!

Congrats again to Papeterie! Looking forward to seeing pictures from last night!


  1. Wendy, it was great meeting you Wednesday night at the open house! Thank you for the kind comments and I look forward to when we can work on a project together! Your blog looks great.
