Copper Willow Paper Studio is an eco-minded luxury paper boutique located in the trendy Culver City arts district. Jill Velez and Leora Mauck own and operate the walk-in space that is equipped with 3 vintage letterpress machines, pre-press equipment, and a hot foil press. Specializing in one-of-a-kind design with handmade flair, Copper Willow designs paper for every aspect of any event. From save-the-dates and invitations, to napkins, favor packaging and coasters, every piece is designed and created in the studio.
With hand calligraphy, original artwork, over 40 in-house inks and endless material resources, every paper is exactly to their client’s specifications. Visitors enjoy one-on-one consultations and are attended to with great care throughout the design process. Jill and Leora have lovingly put more than 13 years of combined stationery experience into a beautiful studio that creates timeless treasures. We asked Jill and Leora to come up with an elegant invitation for this year’s Haute Tea with E and they delivered something spectacular! Thank you Jill and Leora!

What type of invitation is right for you? Letterpress is a timeless, elegant look and is an art form all it’s own. Invitations and other goodies can be printed on a myriad of papers including cork, wood, coaster stock, cloth and ultra-thick paper or board. To add something modern to your design, try foil. Metallics are very in and give an invitation a rich feeling. If you like a lot of color, you can always go digital. It’s a versitile way to print and Copper Willow Paper Studio offers it too.
