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.

Letterpress Business Card Roundup

Time for another business card roundup! After you're done here, you might want to check out previous roundups from 2013, 2014, and just this past January.

Canadian designer and photographer Amanda Benincasa (benincasadesign.com) designed these cards, complete with a letterpress QR code. We printed them with custom green and gray inks on thick 600g Fluorescent White Lettra.

For long-time Parklife collaborator, Chad Martin of The G Brand (see more of his design work here and here), we printed these duplexed business cards with black ink on 300g Lettra for the front and gold ink on 2-ply Rising Museum Board for the back.

Like pretty much everyone (Parklife included), Gritchelle recently relocated to Portland. We printed these cards for our new neighbor on 300g Fluorescent White Lettra.

Some super-deluxe cards for Chapel Hill brand gurus, Immortology: Three inks on 300g Lettra for the front and white foil + a blind deboss on 350g Ebony Colorplan for the back.

Finally, a business card reboot for Dyfari Interiors featuring Espresso and Periwinkle inks with Periwinkle edge paint on 600g Pearl White Lettra. This is the third iteration in a series of cards we've printed for Diane, starting with this version in 2010.

Foil, Door Tags, and Alligators

It's great when we get to work with a wedding client from the very beginning – starting with the save the dates, moving on to the invitations, and then following through to the wedding day pieces. We did this for Elisa and Alexander, shifting the design vision slightly throughout the process while still maintaining a cohesive aesthetic.

For the save the date, we printed tinted white and Espresso inks on an oversized 600g Pearl White card, tucking the text in the corner and emphasizing the dandelion motif.

Moving to the invitation set, we got a bit more elaborate and less minimalistic. The alligator-print-lined envelopes housed a gatefold card, guarded by a pair of blind-pressed gators. Inside was a 3-ink + gold foil invitation on thick Fluorescent White paper, a 2-ink + foil pre-party card, and a 2-ink reply card with a lined reply envelope.

We unfortunately don't have photos of the (awesome) programs, menus, and place cards, but we did snag a shot of these custom die-cut hanging door tags that the bride and groom gave to their guests staying at the venue.
