Letterpress Holiday Cards

Wow! Time flies when you’re busy! Here’s some cards we printed back in December for CSX. We were absolutely delighted to print these. They were designed by the Robin Sheperd Group. We custom Pantone matched all ink colors, including the 2 metallic inks on the white card.

The first card is a nice 4 color train illustration. This card is printed on 110lb Lettra in Ecru. We printed 4 colors on the front, one color inside, a CSX logo on the back, scored, and trimmed to size. This design has a nice hand drawn feel to it, and registration wasn’t as key as it was for the next card.

The second card features a nicely designed 2 color pattern with CSX trains inside snowflakes. This type of design calls for accurate, hairline registration. With meticulous care, attentional to detail, and a lot of patience, hairline registration is not a problem. Once the plate is in register, it’s a piece of cake. Though it can definitely stress you out in the process.

I really like how well these cards came out, and I really like the designs RSG came up with for CSX. We look forward to printing more! If you’re interested in having company greeting cards printed up, let us know! Also make sure to plan ahead and contact us well before the deadline. As with anything awesome, it takes time to make it. 🙂
