Despite recent cuts in the arts sectors United Creatives created a postcard to let people know it’s not all doom and gloom. The postcards are printed on a hefty 638gsm 100% cotton and on Colorplan White/Red/White Triplex. Printing on both sides can sometimes cause issues, you will often see evidence of an impression on the opposite side. Opting for a heavy stock means we can still achieve a deep impression on both sides.

Letterpress printing is perfect for printing type and imagery. So when Heather & Jack asked us to print their hand drawn design for their wedding invitations we knew the results would be wonderful. Letterpress printed black ink on our Heidelberg platens onto 638gsm cotton paper. Designed by Ashley Amery.
We recently printed this gorgeous wedding invitation. Letterpress printed onto 638gsm pure cotton board both sides, 3 colours front, 2 colours on the back. A6 postcard with a summer bunting theme designed by our customer.
Shelley took inspiration from vintage pattern and summer themes and got to work in her sketchbooks. Her drawings were scanned into the computer and “tidied up” in Photoshop. Then she added old typewriter and carnival style fonts into the mix and came up with a design full of nostalgia. You can read more on how Shelley created her design on her blog.
Shelley emailed her artwork to us and we got to work. We colour matched the inks to Pantone refs and a print out from her computer as it had the tone of colour she liked. Considering the weight of board used the job ran smoothly. First we printed the fuchsia and grey, front and back and finally the green on the front then trimmed to size. Packed and dispatched before the weekend for Shelley to start sending out.
