About Us

Paperwheel Press is a letterpress print studio in the hills of Portola Valley, California. We’re home to a 1923 and a 1929 Chandler and Price Platen letterpress and a vintage guillotine paper cutter.

Elizabeth Weil founded Paperwheel in 2006 after falling in love with a single letterpressed business card. She became obsessed, and learned everything she could about printing, combining her passion for handcrafted tactile letterpress printing with the art of the “handwritten note.” Our custom greeting cards, invitations, stationery, and more are designed to be your perfect fit.

An ultra-marathon runner, Elizabeth trail-runs each morning, swearing that’s when she gets her best ideas. Paperwheel Press reflects the little things that make up Elizabeth’s style, spirit, and energy.
