Letterpress Business Cards

I love letterpressed business cards. While they tend to cost a bit more, they definitely make an impression! 🙂 I really enjoyed the techniques behind a few of these.

While these cards from Tangible Worldwide are letterpressed, the back of these eco-friendly cards have the card holder’s information rubber-stamped on.


Letterpressed llamas. An alliteration you have to love! We also approve of the bright red edge printing on these cards from Shynanigans.

Light on Paper – Wedding Invitations that Shine

Remember my designer friend Deny who proposed with a laser light and a long shutter speed? Well, I finally got his invitations and I’m very excited to share it with you! Deny loves clean type and the color black so it was no surprise when the invite was done with all type. The loveliest part of this invite was not the letterpressed white piece (did I just say that?), it was in fact the blue foiling on the textured black stock. It brings us back to his light theme. When held against sunlight, it reflects beautifully. Congrats again to the happy couple!

Edge printing

Looking at printing some business cards and digging on the edge printing. It’s so slick.

Printed for Christian Garbaldi Photography. Designed by Denise Vannucci of Yellow Advertising & Design fand printed by Alex Daley of Dolce Press

These were printed for Table4 Photography by Studio Z Mendocino. There were 3 runs to print this card. One for the blind embossed “Table4 Weddings”, one for foiled names, and one for the foiled info. That blue edge printing with the black card is pretty slick!

Inspired in Buenos Aires

Discovered Morris Essex vintage style stationery which is all created and printed by Eliza Jane Curtis in the historic Palermo barrio of Buenos Aires. The work is a combination of linocut block-printing and silkscreen, using both traditional screenprinting techniques and the Gocco machine.

Eliza says her designs are inspired by her combination of her love of the city’s art deco architectural details and memories of childhood daydreams in the fields and forests of Maine to create motifs of geometry, nature and fantasy. Shop for more her work on her etsy.
