Super stylish cards created for Feix & Merlin. These cards utilise a blind debossing and ink on one side of a 540gsm Colorplan Smoke, with an ink the other. We love the patterned optical illusion effect across the back, the debossed lines make for a great tactile feel for these cards.

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.”

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.

Paper Passionist

Paper PassionistPaper PassionistPaper PassionistDebbie is passionate about paper, really passionate. With her background in the paper industry she knows a thing or two about paper. We got a call from Debbie while she was over in New York for the Stationery Show, “Can you print my business cards for when I return in a couple of days for PG Live in London?” How could we resist! The paper was chosen, the type set and colours picked in no time and the next day it was on the press.

The cards are printed with coral ink and finished off with matching edge colour. There was only one paper choice for a paper passionist – the awesome 600gsm Cranes Lettra Flourescent White.

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.

WRK™ Business Card

Edge painted letterpress business cardEdge painted letterpress business cardEdge painted letterpress business cardEdge painted letterpress business card
Mark Lindop, a brand identity designer from WRK™ has created a design that uses letterpress and edge painting to full effect. We printed the cards on a Heidelberg platen, silver ink onto a substantial 650mic recycled black board. Silver ink isn’t glossy like a foil but does have a rather sexy shimmer to it and stands out well on the black. Mark’s choice of colour for the edge painting is a vibrant contrast and certainly grabs your attention. We love it!

Edge Painted Business Cards

Edge painted business cardsEdge painted business cardsEdge painted business cardsEdge painted business cards We recently worked with design outfit The Ubiquitous Manufacturing Company to print their business cards. The brief called for super thick board with edge painting and we talked at length about the effect they hoped to achieve. We sourced this 1000mic 100% recycled dark grey board – perfect!

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.
