Metallic blue hot foil for The De Beauvoir Deli Co. olive oil labels.

Quite a tricky print due to the large patterned print area and delicate typography. But we persevered and after testing various metallic blues we found this striking metallic shade. Printed on a beautiful quality label stock and kiss cut to shape before hand applying to the bottles.

Scalable Finance

Impressive business cards for Scalable Finance designed by our friends at United Creatives.

Monochrome and stylish, the cards utilise two foils either side of a 540gsm Colorplan Ebony. White gloss foil for the text and logos, with strong geometric shapes brought out with a matte transparent foil. The transparent has a shimmering effect in the light and also gives the card an interesting feel in the hand. Great work.

We were really excited to be able to work with a new distillery in Ireland, The Boatyard Distillery. United Creatives are the designers behind this striking design utilizing silver hotfoils on Colorplan, taking elements of the location and history of the Distillery.

After testing different metallic foils on various papers they settled for two shades of silver on Imperial Blue Colorplan. We added a letterpress printed barcode and a blind emboss to enhance the tactile nature of the product. The labels are kiss cut to make peeling and application to the bottles as easy as possible.

If these taste as good as they look The Boatyard are onto a winner!

Lovely simple monogrammed business cards for Interior designer Ellie Leigh Williams. With copper foil one side of a Colorplan Real Grey and a black letterpress print the other side. Wisely, Ellie’s card is designed as such that the debossing from either side do not overlap front to back. This way she can achieve maximum deboss on both sides without compromising the appearance on the other. Great stuff!

Interesting paired cards for Benny Leung of Blch, on a 540gsm Colorplan Cool Grey.

These cards utilise inks and foils together for a more varied style of print, the first card uses a large grey flood, contrasted with a black foil strip and black inked pattern to deliver a nice tactile impression. The second with a black flood and a gloss transparent foiled strip and pattern.

Transparent foils are a great way to subtly highlight elements of the card, think of them as a debossed Spot UV finish. Use them to make your card stand out from the crowd.

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.

Hannah & Al – Save the Date

Hannah & Al Save the DateHannah & Al Save the Date

We had the pleasure of working alongside talented designer Alex Farrall to create these great wedding invitations.

Alex came to us with his artwork and the idea of working on a recycled craft stock, after some consideration we advised that this particular stock may be problematic when printing due to the nature of the artwork (with fine vector illustrations in such a large print area). We explored some more options and Alex settled on a much better alternative. Though we always give customers the freedom to have their prints as they like, we strive to give the best possible advice and options to create an absolute premium quality print on every job.
