Brilliant duplexed cards contrasting a Colorplan Dark grey and Citrine 350gsm either side for a 700gsm finished weight. White foil to logo side and a black ink the other. Produced for Made in Chiswick, print management services by the helpful guys at Windsor Jennings.

If you’re looking for a white print on a dark or coloured stock; foil is definitely the way to go, white or coloured letterpress inks can appear dull on dark or coloured stocks whilst the white foil print maintains its opacity really well when pressed to these colorplan stocks. Also great for a glossy finish.

Something a little bit different for Dan Halliday of Soundry. Custom Die cut duplex business cards with that beaming Colorplan bright red and an ink mixed to match, nicely finished off with a blind deboss.

Custom die-cuts are a great way to get your card to stand out from the crowd with a unique shape.

GEM Creative Services

Georgina at GEM Creative Services was looking for something a little different for her business cards. We talked with her making numerous suggestions and arranged for various samples and tests. One of the tests was a Colorplan/Twist Duplex which really caught our attention. Something to play on the senses.

The green Twist is a wonderfully tactile stock, almost hairy to touch and is a perfect partner to contrast the white Colorplan.

We love a deboss and adding a subtle tint can really enhance it. Here’s a great example of a tinted deboss on Colorplan for architects Tigg + Coll. The yellow ink was hand mixed to match the yellow side of the Duplex.

The TJM Projects logo called for extremely accurate registration. The overlap created a third colour without the need for a third pass on the press. Overlapping colours is a great way to create extra colours without increasing production costs.

Two colour versions of Colorplan Duplex were used to compliment the brand further.

The cards are a Cranes Crest / Accent Fresco 700gsm duplex, letterpress printed black and blind deboss on the Cranes, black ink on the Fresco. The black logo on the Fresco was originally intended to be a blind deboss but we advised a black ink to help lift it. We can edge paint a Duplex stock and these were painted in a vibrant aqua green.

Red and white duplex is a striking combination as seen here in these business cards we printed for James Sheriff at Genius Division. Printing red ink to complement the red paper and then printing red ink over the red side rather than a blind deboss really help lift the pattern.

Careful consideration was given to the type of stock in order to enhance the elegance of this design. The monochromatic palette adds to the elegance of the design and the Order of Service which simply has four of the symbols from the design debossed onto Somerset 300gsm, 100% cotton paper, compliments it beautifully. The invitations were finished with rounded corners.

Duplex Business Card

Grey & debosed business cardGrey & debosed business cardGrey & debosed business cardGrey & debosed business cardWe enjoyed printing these business cards for designer David Parsons at Give A Damn Design. A clean design of slab serif type in grey ink and debossed logo. Deboss is letterpress printing but with no ink and creates a superbly tactile finish. (Click here to see another example of deboss). The card is white front and grey back, sandwiched together to create a striking effect that works with the design.

The cards were designed by David and supplied to us as a PDF and we printed the cards on our 1969 Heidelberg press.

Dimensions: 85 x 55mm
