I had the pleasure of working with Robyn of Chick Invitations on printing her re-designed business cards; 3 colors on the front and a hefty solid on the back. There was a slight incubation period where all of the ink had to dry, but when these babies hatched I immediately fell in love.
Simple and pretty business cards for jeweler Lindsay Lee.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with photographer Ronnie Bruce on his business cards. It is this kind of simple and straight forward design that always manages to make my heart skip a beat when letterpress printed. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it forever- one color goes a long way. This card travels miles. If you don’t believe me, give him a call and ask for one.
While you’re at it take a look at his website, this guy photographs it all (very well, I might add).
Printed on 220# Flo Lettra in black ink.
Here is an example what a large solid looks like when letterpress printed. The ladies over at Chick Invitations were perfectly happy with the “salty” appearance and light impression on the back of this business card they designed. Embrace the weaknesses and you’ll forget they exist!
Printed on 50 pt. coaster stock.
A lot of people come to me wanting a light ink printed on dark stock which isn’t really achievable with the translucent tendencies of letterpress ink. Metallic inks, however, have the opacity that others don’t, and are a great way to compromise (if you’re open to it). Dan was, and I think that his cards turned out great as a result. Take a look at his website, and give him a follow to keep up with his work!
Printed in silver ink on a 2 ply, black museum board.
Here are a few sneaks of the fully customizable collection. View it in its entirety here!
Of course the line wouldn’t be complete without its very own business card! These 2 color cards were printed on 110# Pearl Lettra and cut with a custom die designed by the Curious team:
Mara, the steady hand behind Neither Snow, needed some new business cards. And so she got them. These beauties were letterpress printed in black, on a 50 point coaster stock.
Graphic design student Leilani contacted me recently to get some business cards printed. She wanted something that would leave an impact with its recipients while she was on the hunt for a job. Lucky for me, this was a girl who knew what she wanted; 220# flo white Lettra, printed in a light, cool gray.
A very sweet design for a very sweet girl. Check out her website!
