Printing the For Luca business cards

Printing the For Luca business cards on a Heidelberg platen

Hands up for Luca

When Luca was just 3 years old he was struck down with Meningococcal Septicaemia. The disease ravaged his body in hours and left him fighting for his life. Luca lost both of his legs along with muscle and skin below his hips. He has massive skin and tissue and muscle loss across his arms and shoulders and is now fighting to save his knees which have been severely damaged. He is one brave little chap and so when his Dad contacted us for some business cards to help with Luca’s campaign we fired up the presses.

We printed Luca’s cards on our Heidelberg platen, 1 colour both sides on GF Smiths 540gsm Colorplan. The cards were finished with complimenting blue edge painting.

Read more about Luca’s story on his Facebook page, follow Luca on Twitter or donate on his Just Giving page.

Ben Saunders is a polar explorer, motivational speaker and only the third person to ski solo to the North Pole. He also holds the record for the longest solo Arctic journey by a Briton.

We printed Ben’s new business cards on 540gsm Colorplan in black and red ink. A simple clean design with surprisingly tight registration. We took great care ensuring the red way points and route line registered perfectly to the black.

Mark Dowsett of Stranger Studio came to blush°° for some quality letterpress printing. Mark’s postcard features a large QR code that you can scan and feel. Once scanned on a smartphone reveals his contact details, address, email and web address – very clever and a cool way to give people your details.

The postcards are letterpress printed on 540gsm Colorplan Citrine yellow, both sides on a Heidelberg platen. Colorplan is a fairly hard stock but does take a nice clean deep impression.

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.

1985 Business Cards

1985 letterpress business cards1985 letterpress business cards1985 letterpress business cards1985 letterpress business cards1985 letterpress business cardsWe printed these 2 colour, double-sided business cards for London based art director Richard Monk of 1985®. A bit of a thank you really after an interview we took part in for the CCCCareer website.

Richard’s design is strong and bold typography in black and grey and has printed really well on the 540 white board.

The job was part of our unique #LetterpressLive tweeting sessions on Twitter, where we tweet each stage of the process as it happens and is an insight into blush°° and the letterpress process. If you missed the session you can catch up on our Flickr pages.

Silver on Black Letterpress Business Card

Silver ink on Black letterpress business cardSilver ink on Black letterpress business cardSilver ink on Black letterpress business cardLess is more on this business card we printed recently for Jökull Sólberg Auðunsson. Along with the initial inquiry came lots of examples of the kind of effect Jökull was looking to achieve. After a few emails back and to we felt we had a clear idea of the best way forward. The cards were printed on our Heidelberg platen in silver ink onto 540gsm black stock. The sheen from the silver ink changing with light from different directions.

The heavy stock allowed for a deep impression which resulted a firm business card that feels solid in your hand.
