We were really excited to be able to work with a new distillery in Ireland, The Boatyard Distillery. United Creatives are the designers behind this striking design utilizing silver hotfoils on Colorplan, taking elements of the location and history of the Distillery.

After testing different metallic foils on various papers they settled for two shades of silver on Imperial Blue Colorplan. We added a letterpress printed barcode and a blind emboss to enhance the tactile nature of the product. The labels are kiss cut to make peeling and application to the bottles as easy as possible.

If these taste as good as they look The Boatyard are onto a winner!

We were delighted to be asked by Alan at Paperback to print the new Cairn swatch. We use Paperback papers on a regular basis. All their products are 100% recycled, offering our designers and customers many colours, finishes and weights to explore. We worked alongside Paperback’s designer advising on adapting their design to suit the processes to be used, truly showing the range of processes on Cairn products. Cairn is perfect for letterpress, blind deboss and hot foil creating a stunning tactile letterpress print.

We love this 2 colour wedding invitation for designer Elliot Jay Stocks and his bride to be Samantha. Printed 2 colours both sides on a hefty 1000mic recycled board and finished with die cut corners. The recycled board is rough and uneven varying the impression across the print area adding texture and random imperfections, making each print different from the next.
