Business Cards for The Eighty-Eight. A publication curated by Jamie Cullum. Black ink one side on a 540gsm Colorplan Pale grey, with a vibrant neon green edge paint.

In Jamie’s words; “The magazine isn’t about me necessarily, but about things that I’m interested in. I’m really interested in journalism and writing, and I know so many writers, so I thought I could have a go and get some friends involved. Sophie’s a writer, my best friend is a playwright, another runs an amazing burger blog and others interested in short stories. Not many people know that I did English literature and typography, so I got to indulge my passion for fonts and design.”

Volume 2 on sale September 1st!

Triplex business cards printed for Sparrow Design.

Two sheets of 175gsm Real Grey either side of a vibrant 540gsm Mandarin with an ink to match. The heavier weight of the central card works as a great alternative to edge painting. Tasteful and effective!

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 these business cards for Hi Ho Designs. Although not quite a full flood it was still a tricky print job. Registration had to be accurate to avoid too much overlap of the colours on the speech bubble and the hoe. The cards, designed by Henry Wyer were letterpress printed in 2 colours, both sides on 540gsm 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.

Hot foil and letterpress business cards

These striking business cards designed by graphic designer Andy Cooke are an excellent example of metallic hot foil and letterpress print techniques. Printing floods of ink or foil can cause us to take a sharp intake of breath but we knew we had to try it for this job. Andy’s design called for a solid flood of metallic foil on one side with extremely fine hot foil and letterpress print on the reverse of the 700gsm Colorplan.

United Creatives brought together Blush and LaserLea to create this unique business card for Disappearing Dining Club.

Disappearing Dining Club bring people together to enjoy great food, drink and good company in private and unusual spaces from department stores and churches to salvage yards and roof tops.

We letterpress printed both sides of the sheet, 4 up on 540gsm Colorplan and sent them off to LaserLea to laser cut to fork shape out from the cards. The sheets were then returned to us for trimming.

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.

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.
