No Thank You

No Thank You letterpress business cardSøren Ragsdale came to us to create and print this simple card.

Here’s Søren’s brief:
I’d like to order a set of business cards that just say “No Thank You” in a clean, serifed script. I’ve just moved to London where there are a ton of people trying to hand me flyers. I’d like to have something to hand back to them.

I wonder if the people who receive them keep them or just throw them away? Either way, what a great idea!

Letterpress printed black 1/0 on Cranes Crest 365gsm, 100% cotton. Dimensions: 85 x 55mm.

BrainUp Business Cards

Edge painted letterpress business cardsEdge painted letterpress business cardsEdge painted letterpress business cardsEdge painted letterpress business cardsSome rather special letterpress business cards for Romanian company Brain Up. Printed 3 colours both sides on a hefty 700gsm Colorplan and finished off with vibrant green edges.

The stock allowed a deep impression on both sides without too much show through on the opposite face. The original plan was to use a triplex stock, white/green/white, but edge painting ultimately has a powerful presence.

Print Specs:
Colorplan 700gsm, 3 colours both sides, green edge paint, letterpress printed on a Heidelberg platen.

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.

Press Pass Business Card

Press pass letterpress business cardPress pass letterpress business cardPress pass letterpress business cardWe love this press pass style business card designed Daniel Duhig Design for freelance journalist Cartlon Boyce. The detail of the design is accurate right down to a small photo of Carlton which is attached to the small blue square. We printed the cards on 1000mic recycled board in 2 colours on our Heidelberg letterpress printing presses. The surface of the recycled board is irregular with high and low points making each print unique.

The cards were printed on our Heidleberg platen presses in silver ink, 2 sides. The ‘Crown’ logo on the front was due to be a deboss but we printed a transparent white to help lift it.

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.

Business Card & Type Matters!

Typographer business card

We thought these business cards deserved an airing. We printed them for our good friend and collaborator, typographer Jim Williams. Jim has been working with blush°° since the start, creating our logo and designing our stationery. He has designed many of our greeting cards including our “Quotes” range and is currently working on 6 new quotes to add to the range.

Jim asked us to print his business cards in black and red ink, letterpress printed onto 100% cotton paper. Jim’s attention to detail is legendary. He carefully and considerately chooses the right typeface for each job and manually kerning characters by the smallest amounts. Who would ever notice…? Well, we and others do notice and that’s why we like working with Jim.

Jim is a fount(ain) of knowledge when it comes to typography and this is put to good use when he teaches at Staffordshire University. This has led on to Jim creating his booklet, Type Matters! A few simple tips on how to keep your typography in good order.

Type Matters! by Jim Williams

Type Matters! by Jim Williams

Type Matters! by Jim Williams

Type Matters! covers the basics of typography and typesetting, touching on how some typographic terminology comes straight out of the letterpress print room. A more comprehensive and detailed book is a must!
