Client-designed Christmas cards for Georgia firm Parrish Construction Group. Thick cotton paper with bright red and light gray inks — with a sneaky "Merry Christmas" on the back.
PAPER 600g Fluorescent White
INK Scarlet & Pantone Cool Gray 1
Duplexed, edge-painted, blind-debossed business cards for Portland's BRIGHT DESIGNLAB.
Since the subtlety of the blind-pressed pattern on the front of the card is crucial, we couldn't press both sides of the paper. So we printed the front and back on separate 300g sheets, the glued, trimmed, and edge-painted.
PAPER 600g Pearl White (Duplexed)
INK Black, Blind deboss
2/2 cards on 500g Savoy for Vanessa of Zimmer Legal. Slick design by Philip Lowe.
This Savoy stock is becoming a favorite for business cards. It isn't crazy thick, but it's enough to allow for two-sided letterpress without much impression show-through.
PAPER 500g (30pt) Savoy Brilliant White
INK Custom Pantone mixes
Two beautiful sets of blind-embossed holiday cards designed by Chad at The G Brand.
A quick refresher: A blind emboss uses a convex die to press the paper from the back into a concave counter-die in the front creating a raised surface. This is not to be confused with a letterpress deboss — the impression made by a letterpress die pressing into the front of the paper.
Client-designed invitations with simple gray letterpress on the front and gold foil on the back. We printed the front and back on separate sheets then duplexed after printing for a thick card with no impression show-through.
