Ontario Blossoming

Gabriel & Aida saw two of our most popular wedding invitations, our Ontario and Blossom styles, and asked, "why choose?". Why not Ontariossom? Or Blosstario? 

With our help, they combined the modern typefaces and sleek black / white / silver color scheme of our Ontario style with the classic floral motif from our Blossom design.

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.

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.

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.

Anniversary Foil

For us, 2015 has been the year of foil. Check out these awesome foil stamped employee recognition cards we printed for Canada's Ian Martin Group.

All six sets were printed with gold foil on 600g Ecru Lettra paper, then finished with gold edge paint.
