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.
