folio press & paperie strives to inspire connections and understanding of self, others, and community through intentional hand-drawn design, lettering, and fine print media.


Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains, folio's home in Santa Barbara, CA is a gateway to some of the most beautiful natural spaces in California. Many of our designs are inspired by our surrounding environment, colors, and textures.


All folio products are designed and printed in-house just 3 blocks from the beach using our 1953 Heidelberg Windmill and 1924 treadle-powered Chandler & Price platen presses. Along with our hand-drawn designs, we also utilize antique wood and lead type and retro icons.
