Impressus is a modern day letterpress studio located in Ottawa, Ontario. We specialize in small runs of business cards, greeting cards for any occasion, prints, gift tags, and other stationery goods, including personalized stationery for businesses and individuals alike. We also love working with clients on custom designs for wedding suites, baby announcements and other life events.

We work with metal type and photopolymer plates and print on our antique hand-operated press, the Golding Pearl Improved No.11. We use 100% cotton papers (110 lb. cover weight and up) and rubber-based inks. We also like experimenting with different textures, including wood veneer and short pattern papers.
