For designer and event consultant, Ilaria Ceresoli and her business Just a Dream, we printed these super-deluxe foil + letterpress business cards on 100% cotton Somerset paper.
Since Ilaria designed these with foil and a blind deboss on both sides, we printed the front and back on separate sheets of 330g Somerset paper, then duplexed them after printing so that the impressions didn't get flattened.
Parklife Press is grateful to have earned a lot of repeat business for business cards — new hires, change of information, and promotions all require updates and re-orders. But seeing and working on cards for new clients is always fun, and here are a few new ones to show you.
Using the "dessert first" philosophy, we open with this confection of a card for Seaside Macarons of La Jolla, California. The logo and design were custom-made by Parklife Press. The card features three custom inks printed on 450g Wild stock (a brown, a cheerful robin's egg blue, and a lighter tint of that blue, used as the pattern on the lower half of the card).
Next we have Broker/Realtor Van Fletcher, of Raleigh. Each side is printed with two custom inks. The sides are then glued back to back (a process called "duplexing"), trimmed to size, then edge-painted. The front features a two-color logo with key illustration and the back has two letterpress inks printed on top of a flat offset-printed flood. This gives the back a textured, almost quilted appearance. They are truly luxurious cards.
And last but not least, we have these art deco inspired cards for Leyla Gans of Morrisville. The cards are eye-catching for many reasons, perhaps most notably the die-cut rounded edges — the angular graphic starburst design is balanced by the card's contours. They're printed in Midnight and Gold inks on 500g Radient White Somerset stock.
