Julie Holcomb Printers

1601 63rd St.
Emeryville , CA , United States

Open by appointment, this renowned print shop is located in a warehouse just across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco. Established in 1982, the company produces wedding invitations and personalized stationery using artisanal letterpress techniques. Founder Julie Holcomb and her team of printmakers first create a plate from a chosen design, and then craft each piece on custom-made, 100-percent cotton paper. Holcomb is especially known for her use of nontraditional colors; for example, her stationery cards might be hand-edged in cobalt, lime, mint, or metallic magenta. Her work is also on permanent display at New York's Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
