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.

The London Distillery Company have collaborated with Fortnum & Mason to create a new limited edition Dodd’s Gin. Botanical inspiration for the gin comes from Fortnum & Mason’s rooftop bees and is carried through to the colour schemes and golden hot foil.

The labels are designed by United Creatives and are a reworking of their label for the original Dodd’s Gin bottles. The labels were letterpress printed in three colours on our Heidelberg platens followed with a metallic hotfoil. They were then kiss cut to allow them to be easily peeled off, hand numbered and applied the bottles. Printing such an intricate design with no trapping takes great care and attention to detail at each stage of the production.

The gin is available to purchase online from Fortnum & Mason but be quick as only 300 bottles have been produced!
