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?

Kiya Babzani owns several stores around the San Francisco area. From handmade Japanese denim to selvage edged shirts, Kiya can take care of you. We put together this design for him based on his somewhat insane obsession with denim and all things vintage. We printed the front side with a subtle denim texture in a deep navy blue, which slightly contrasts with the blue of the paper. We then printed silver metallic on top of that to give the information some pop. (more…)
