Designed by Julia carefoot of Glorious Creative in Manchester and supplied by email for us to print. Julia looked into papers at the early stages of the project and had chosen a smooth board which we felt was not thick enough to enable us to achieve a deep impression on both sides of the cards. We advised Julia to go with a heavier pure cotton paper, Saunders 425gsm.

Wedding invitation, information card and a thank you card letterpress printed in gold ink on both sides of A6.

Limited Edition Letterpress Prints

This wonderful illustration by Dutch artist Alice Kok was a delight to print. The flowing linework created a wonderful deep impression into the paper. Alice supplied her illustration via email and we suggested suitable papers. Saunders was perfect for these prints as it would allow a deep impression without the paper warping under the extreme pressures of the press.

Dimensions: 220 x 320mm, letterpress printed onto Saunders 425gsm 100% cotton paper, Black & red ink. Illustration © copyright Alice Kok.

The prints are available to buy direct from Alice at £25 each. Each print is numbered and signed of an limited edition of 50.

We discussed which papers would be most suitable as he wanted a really deep impression. After seeing John’s artwork we recommended Saunders 425gsm. A beautiful soft white cotton paper heavier than the average business card but not too thick to take up too much room in his wallet!

Getting the right amount of ink was critical for this design. We had to have enough coverage for the block at the top of the card without over inking the finer typography at the bottom.
