LETTERPRESS BUSINESS CARDS BLIND DEBOSS AND EDGE PAINTING

Blind_debossing_letterpress_edge_painting02

Designer and programmer Berndt Kraemer designed the layout for these cards for his client Kai Bretall and he wanted something a bit special to make the cards stand out from the crowd when his client visited business gatherings. Blind deboss and edge painting was the solution. This is where the edge painting really takes over. Using a heavy stock, in this instance the 100% cotton 600gsm Gmund New Grey the orange/yellow edge colour was the perfect contrast.

Edge pained with a lovely bright and contrasting orange. Here you can see how thick these cards really are. With edge painting it is best to use thicker stock to make the colour pop.

The rear side of the cards was treated with a blind de-boss meaning without inking up, we pressed the photopolymer plate hard against the cotton paper to produce an impression into the card which was not only visible but could be felt with the fingertips running over the soft surface, basically that’s what the new era of modern letterpress is all about.

LITTLE CREATURES – NOTE CARDS

  animal note cards
cute animal note cards letterpress printed on fine cotton paper – May 2014

These note cards have been very popular with our kids and, were originally just created for them to send to family members for birthdays etc. They were so well received, we decided to make them into a range of note cards for our online store. We chose the fox, the owl, the hedgehog and the squirrel as these were the animals our kids loved the most. However, we want to add to the range and not just a few either. Let us hear your ideas for other animals that you would like to see on the note cards to help the range expand. We will have a competition to win 2 sets of 8 of the note cards. Remember these are premium hand printed cards that will make an impression however you choose to use them. Sign up for our newsletter and contact us with at least one animal suggestion for the note card range and you will be automatically entered into the draw.

FANTASTIC SAVE THE DATE CARD, BUT NOT A WEDDING IN SITE

save the date invitation - DIY

two sided 3 colour letterpress print with laser cutting for the bicycles components

This Save the Date card really grabbed my attention this morning as I was browsing the net with a mouthful of toast. A really creative Do-It-Yourself kit for the opening of a bicycle shop by ‘Save the Date Projects’ and ‘Daily Bicycle Co’. The individual parts of the bicycle were laser cut from thick duplexed conqueror card so the recipient could easily pop them out and fix them together.
