We love this 2 colour wedding invitation for designer Elliot Jay Stocks and his bride to be Samantha. Printed 2 colours both sides on a hefty 1000mic recycled board and finished with die cut corners. The recycled board is rough and uneven varying the impression across the print area adding texture and random imperfections, making each print different from the next.

Designed by Elliot Jay Stocks.

The detail of the design is accurate right down to a small photo of Carlton which is attached to the small blue square. We printed the cards on 1000mic recycled board in 2 colours on our Heidelberg letterpress printing presses. The surface of the recycled board is irregular with high and low points making each print unique.

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.
