Interisland Terminal meets letterpress

Friday, December 18th, 2009

We were approached, quite a while back, by Interisland Terminal to print their beautifully designed cards, but we have been quite busy and have neglected the blog. We loved the design and knew they would be a perfect candidate for letterpress. The cards are 1 color in a nice charcoal grey paired with a blind impression for the logo. The combination provides a unique business card with just a bit of mystery because of the blind impression.

This job is a perfect example of how you can save costs with letterpress by printing more than 1 set at a time. We were able to run these cards 6-up, which reduces the press time and therefore reducing the cost to the customer.

Free + Letterpress business cards = Awesome

We apologize for neglecting the blog lately… but we have been busy so stay tuned for some new posts. Some of ya’ll might remember a while back we had a drawing on PCBdaily.com for some free business cards. The lucky winner was Scott Pittman who is an aspiring photographer. He does some amazing work and hopefully these cards will catapult him to success!

Denim + Letterpress v2

Monday, September 21st, 2009

A while back we printed some cards for Kiya Babzani, and his wife, Demitra, decided she wanted some fancy letterpress cards of her own. Well it seems she has 1-up’d her husband unfortunately. We really enjoyed seeing this cards coming to life, as leprachauns riding unicorns paraded around the studio finishing the tasks like hand painting the edges red, and then tearing each label, then applying them one by one to each card. Okay, so maybe there weren’t leprachauns or unicorns, but don’t tell anyone as our reputation would be ruined.

We designed these cards for Demitra while trying to reflect her love (obsession) that she shares with her husband for denim. We printed a denim pattern over both sides of the cards in a nice contrasting blue, then printed the logos in metallic silver so they really stand out. The labels were then printed in metallic silver and red. The process was so worth it though, as the resulting card blows your mind. Oh, did I mention these were also custom duplexed paper from French Paper Co?

Simple and Clean Letterpress Cards

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Larry Wong, a Structural Engineer, came to us seeking a simple, clean, and minimalist letterpress business card. However, he came to appreciate the idea of a blind impression. Which is where we print a form without ink. The blind impression adds a great touch of detail to his business card. Bringing it just over minimal type classification.

The cards are 2 color ink with a blind impression on 110lb Lettra flo white.

Here’s more photos for you viewing pleasure.
