OUR ORIGINS

obblestones from Europe pave the streets from the busy waterfront of Portland’s Willamette River to just a few steps from the doors of Oblation Papers & Press. The cobblestones were brought over as ballast in the hulls of merchant ships, exchanging them for lumber, tobacco, and other treasures of the Northwest. Travelers brought with them trades of many sorts, including printing and papermaking which many years later we adopted. For a quarter century we have participated in the honest work of letterpress printing as well as the task of making paper by hand out of 100% cotton that has been recycled from garment industry remnants. We make deckle-edged cards that have a comfortable, old-world sensibility and leather books, bound with the same paper from our urban paper mill. We design and print cards that borrow from aged French and English literature and we are inspired by illustrations rendered in New World communities such as Jamestown and Williamsburg. Amusing ourselves with wit, irony, and a bit of sarcasm, we are delighted to bring you a well-crafted assortment of social stationery products that reflect our inherited traditions.

URBAN PAPER MILL

I

t is not difficult to understand why most alchemists view the making of paper to be chief among practices of their mystical arts. Papermaking apprentices were often locked in cells at the end of a hard day’s work to keep secret the delicate processes of an individual mill. For hundreds of years, discarded rags and garments have been beaten and macerated, bleached and dyed, then suspended in vats of water, naturally containing lime from near-by mineral rich aquifers. Semioticians can scarcely articulate the wonder found in these freshly formed, wet sheets of paper drawn from these self-same vats of cotton pulp. We are about the business of forming sheets in the same manner, and have been doing so for a quarter century.

LETTERPRESS PRINT SHOP

L

etterpress printing presses are heavy, black, oily and made of cast-iron. The traditional tradesman would learn the craft as a printer’s devil by hand-setting lead type from job cases and galleys into steel chases. Jobs would be printed, the shop would be swept, and the inky type cleaned with kerosene then redistributed for work in the morrow. While employing the same tools, daily work in our shop involves the use of soy ink, natural citrus solvents, and flexible polymer plates printed on sheets of paper that are still fed one at a time into mechanical platen presses.

mingles two breaths into one,

renders a sweet elixer, pure love.

HAT + WIG + GLOVE

T

he Hat + Wig + Glove Company punctuates life’s little occasions with carefully disguised greetings well-suited for people with short attention spans.

Hat+Wig + Glove fans don’t believe in using straws, eat sushi with forks and are fond of Fauvism (the early period, not the late). As was said of the movement’s inspirational founder, Gustave Moreau, “He did not set us on the right roads, but off the roads.” There is something here to mildly offend almost everyone you know, so please support our endeavors to make social mischief out of all those awkward and necessary lines of demarcation imposed upon us by authorities of etiquette and decorum.
