Gracious Host & Hostessing 1.0

You've been working hard decorating your home space, are feeling pretty proud and you're ready to share it and party with your friends. The art of being a gracious host & hostess of the mostest sometimes includes special invitations, announcements or even just an old-fashioned house-warming and, of course, thank you notes. Emma Rose Papery is a perfect resource for just those occasions.

Eszter Rabin started Emma Rose Papery in 2005. Originally an ad girl, Eszter has designed for some of the top agencies and clients in the country, including Adidas, Levi's and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others. But being the smart girl she is, she quit the ad biz to follow her real passion and bought a vintage letterpress printer and set up shop in her Potrero Hill garage. Letterpress is the printing process of type or designs cast or engraved in relief and is a bit of a lost art these days. A student of art in both Europe and the United States, Eszter designs and runs the press and her style is simple, elegant, and occasionally full of whimsy. Three printing presses later, the result is a graceful line of custom-designed wedding invitations, stationery and cards that are simply beautiful. And a garage that's getting pretty crowded.

EmmaRose offers five unique wedding packages which can be tailored to suit your occasion. You are welcome to choose your fonts, ink colors, paper and printing method. Or you can have Eszter design your dream invitation, notecards, or stationery - whatever your letterpress printing needs, she will design something to fit your personality and the occasion. Here are just a few examples of her work.
