Metallic blue hot foil for The De Beauvoir Deli Co. olive oil labels.

Quite a tricky print due to the large patterned print area and delicate typography. But we persevered and after testing various metallic blues we found this striking metallic shade. Printed on a beautiful quality label stock and kiss cut to shape before hand applying to the bottles.

Graphic design by United Creatives.

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!

Check out their business cards too!

We were thrilled to be working once again with Jock. This time he has teamed up with Vice Press to produce this awesome limited edition set of Judge Dredd letterpress prints.

The set consists of five 8″ x 8″ pieces with a sixth print randomly inserted in a limited amount of sets. Printed on 300gsm cotton paper and presented in a custom made folder.

The printing presses of choice for this job were our Heidelberg cylinders. These presses provide excellent ink coverage while keeping the ink consistent through the entire run. They ensure the very best letterpress prints possible and retain the finest details from Jock’s original drawings.

If you’re quick you might be able to still order one from Vice Press!

Jamie at Sliced Bread Animation wanted a corner of his business card to perfectly match the angle of the orange forward slash. The only way to achieve this was to die cut the cards after printing. The choice of paper adds an elegant feel. Mohawk is a fine paper well suited to letterpress printing, in this case 540gsm Mohawk Superfine.
