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.
Walt's stationery design is simple, but deceivingly so. We printed the three-color piece on 5x7 cotton paper with a fine halftone screen in the lighter blue ink pass, creating the illusion of a third blue — lighter than the lines that outline the abstract wave shape.
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.
