Lightbulb are a design consultancy with bright ideas looking for a print finish to give their business cards another dimension. The design was created for letterpress and the black and grey ink sinks deep into the 425gsm pure cotton paper. The focal point though is the debossed lightbulb, certain to draw attention when handed out. A deboss clearly shows the impression letterpress can make into the paper, leaving a beautiful tactile finish only possible with this amazing technique.
These floral wedding invitations evoke thoughts of warm summer meadows and look crisp and clean on white card. The flowers are taken from Susie’s original drawings and converted to graphic illustrations by George. Complemented with classic serif and sans serif type. George provided print ready artwork and indicated Pantone colour ref’s. We took care of the separations and pre-press work before sending a final proof for approval.

Letterpress printed in grey and yellow onto 350gsm white card.
We enjoyed printing these business cards for designer David Parsons at Give A Damn Design. A clean design of slab serif type in grey ink and debossed logo. Deboss is letterpress printing but with no ink and creates a superbly tactile finish. (Click here to see another example of deboss). The card is white front and grey back, sandwiched together to create a striking effect that works with the design.
The cards were designed by David and supplied to us as a PDF and we printed the cards on our 1969 Heidelberg press.
Dimensions: 85 x 55mm
