Check out these beautifully understated two-color, two-sided cards for Norfolk's Within Interior Design. For each of the eight women at the firm, we printed turquoise and warm gray inks on thick 600g Fluorescent White Lettra and added turquoise edge paint to match.
For the New Jersey grooming gurus at Virile, we printed these thick two-sided cards on 600g pearl white Lettra with tinted white and black inks. We finished them with a rich brick edge paint.
To help the impression pop, we like to use white ink tinted with a little bit of silver rather than print a completely inkless blind impression.
Freddy Oropeza creates incredibly rich and vibrant photographs. But for his business cards, he opted for a simple, clean, monochrome aesthetic.
We printed these on 600g Gmund Cotton paper with a light tonal ink on the front and a darker gray on the back.
It can be tricky to create a wedding invitation suite that's colorful, playful, and exciting, while still conveying the sophistication of the event itself. While working with Terisa and Tom, the goal of maintaining that balance was always at the front of our minds.
Ok, sure, the save the dates leaned a bit toward the whimsical end. We printed and hole punched a thick 600g note card, and then tied custom-printed balloons for the guests to inflate. Details of the event were on the balloon (and on the website for the faint of breath).
For the invitations we kept the yellow and gray color scheme and the Bombshell / Neutra / Trend Slab typeface combo, but left out the balloons (time to get serious).
We carried a similar look through to the reply card, a custom designed map, and a rehearsal dinner invitation with its own color scheme and tear-off reply card. The set was then placed inside a gray tri-fold pouch, tied with twine, and sealed in a matching gray envelope.
Barry Mills served as president of Maine's Bowdoin College from 2001 until this past July. Upon his departure, the college asked us to print his manifesto as a 6" x 15" letterpress poster.
Since we use a Chandler & Price platen press, which isn't really designed for larger pieces like this, we actually printed this two-color piece in four separate runs. That way we could get a nice even and deep impression into the 600g Lettra paper.
If you thought the letterpress save the dates we printed for Randi & Ben this spring were cool, I think you're gonna like the follow-up.
This was truly a collaborative project. Randi designed the two-sided invitation and sleeve, and sent the specs off to us.
We printed the front of the invitation on 300g Pearl White paper with midnight ink and gold foil, and the back with gold foil on a separate sheet. Then we duplexed the two sheets by hand, let them dry, and trimmed off the edges. This allowed us to get a two-sided piece with heavy artwork and no impression show-through.
Randi designed the sleeve to double as a direction card. We printed those with midnight ink on a 4" x 15" sheet, then scored, folded, and glued them.
Randi finished off the set on her end with gold string and a custom wax seal. Photos of the completed invitation are below.
