Helping you create lasting impressions
Passion Letterpress is a family owned and operated letterpress print studio in Oakville, Ontario.
Inspired by old-fashioned values, ideas, and vintage design with lots of patience, we believe the best ideas start with the creative mind and not the computer screen.
Through traditional letterpress methods, we custom create letterpress printing solutions to you, the discerning modern day client.
Letterpress is the process by which images and text are impressed deep on the paper’s surface, providing both visual and physical elements to your finished product.
High quality letterpress impressions cannot be reproduced by today’s offset and digital printing methods.
We love the way letterpress and foil printing brings ideas into our lives and inspiration to your hearts.
Set yourself apart with creative letterpress products.
This is the passion we have for printing.
Andy Ribau, Owner & Artisan Pressman
Passion Letterpress uses recycled cotton paper that is 100% tree-free.
Engineered for letterpress, cotton paper is soft and luxurious to the touch, yet strong and stable to evoke a high sense of quality.
Most cotton papers are thick to allow for a deep impression for images and inks.
This impression is what distinguishes letterpress printing from other printing methods.
