L’Atelier Letterpress is a French brand of refined and artisanal stationery. From design to careful production, we work every day with passion to offer you unique products of incomparable quality.
L’Atelier Letterpress was born out of the passion of two paper lovers for this incredible printing technique. When we discover letterpress in 2011, it is almost unknown in France. After acquiring our first Heidelberg press, we went to Australia and the United States for several months to train ourselves with masters in this field, then back in France we opened L’Atelier Letterpress.
After several years of offering wedding invitations and birth announcements, we decided to put an end to this activity following the lock out of 2020, and to devote ourselves exclusively to the creation of cards and art prints, always with the same attention to detail and quality.
Our eco-responsible approach
Our workshop is located in an exceptional setting, aboard a barge nestled in lush greenery south of Paris. We’re perhaps the only printshop in the world operating from a boat! We are therefore naturally very sensitive to the impact we have on the environment.
We carefully select FSC certified and if possible recycled papers, as well as environmentally friendly manufacturing techniques and processes.

He went to train at Design College in Brisbane in Australia, then completed his training alongside a master printer in Boston. He is keen on detail who will always go further to obtain the perfect result.
Mylène, graphic designer
