Letterpress Stationery For Matt Graif

Back in 2012 we printed some sweet business cards for Matt along with a couple other letterpress projects he designed for clients of his. Now it's 2015 and Matt's back with a rebranded stationery set.

We printed the business card with black and a custom lime ink on 600g Pearl White Lettra and paired it with a 300g A6 note card and a matching envelope.

Letterpress stationery sets for small businesses are quite fashionable these days. Check out this one we did for Palette & Parlour earlier this year. And we'll have more to share in the coming months.

A Wedding Between Two Ferns

Last month we featured Luke and Robyn's Mount Hood wedding invitation set. Sticking with the Oregon theme, this time we head south for Julia and Detlev's wedding on the Umpqua River.

Both the wedding ceremony invitation and the rehearsal dinner invite feature fern imagery – somewhat abstractly on the main invite and more realistically and delicately for the rehearsal.

Blind, Edged, & Converted

We've been printing fancy letterpress business cards for Norfolk creatives Grow for a while now (check it out). Recently they asked us to print simple blind-pressed, edge painted notes along with custom printed and converted envelopes.

To get the pattern on the inside of the envelope (called a "tint") we first offset printed flat sheets with a light cool gray, then folded and glued the envelopes. Finally, we added the letterpress return address and logo.

A Mount Hood Wedding

Perhaps you saw our 2013 blog post detailing the underused letterpress technique of halftone screens. In short, we can use tiny dots and on-paper ink mixing to create the illusion of gradations and multiple ink colors.

For Robyn and Luke's Timberline Lodge wedding, we used just two inks (a very light gray and a dark blueish-gray) to create a photo-realistic image of Oregon's Mount Hood.

To accompany the invitation, we printed an info card with a tear-off reply postcard (this one with a halftone bird because, hey, put a bird on it), a small rehearsal dinner invite, and a custom woodgrain-lined envelope.

Business Set For Force Majeure Vineyard

Washington's Force Majeure Vineyard makes lovely Bordeaux and Rhone-inspired wines. We've been lucky enough to sample from their limited production and we think their wines pair beautifully with our custom letterpress stationery.

We printed business cards, folded notes, and envelopes for Carrie and Todd using espresso and silver-tinted opaque white ink on Ecru Lettra paper.

Foiled & Monogrammed

We love type-only designs. This one's got a simple monogram in Italic Garamond along with text in Neutra Light and Sloop Script.

We used a custom paper -- two sheets of Dark Gray 350g Colorplan duplexed to create a nice, thick 700g stock. The card was printed with silver foil, finished with silver edge paint, and paired with a pearl white cotton envelope.
