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.

Ayelike letterpress business cardsPrinting a large flat area of ink on uncoated stock can be tricky, but with careful setup on the press it can be done. We achieved a good solid black on these business cards for Neil McLean of Ayelike. Printing a solid black with a reversed out white logo was an alternative to a white hot foil.

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.

Crowne Letterhead & Business Card

Letterpress stationery and business cards for Crowne Chauffeur Services, designed by Alan Haverty. The business cards are letterpress printed onto 540gsm Colorplan black & white duplex with a deboss crown logo on the black side. The letterheads were printed on matching 135gsm Colorplan in black and gold ink.

We paid special attention to the delicate type. Small fine fonts have a tendency to break up under the extreme pressure on the press but a careful balance between pressure, ink and packing on the press can help keep this to a minimum.
