2 colour and deboss business cardsLightbulb are a design consultancy with bright ideas looking for a print finish to give their business cards another dimension. The design was created for letterpress and the black and grey ink sinks deep into the 425gsm pure cotton paper. The focal point though is the debossed lightbulb, certain to draw attention when handed out. A deboss clearly shows the impression letterpress can make into the paper, leaving a beautiful tactile finish only possible with this amazing technique.

A bit of a thank you really after an interview we took part in for the CCCCareer website.

Richard’s design is strong and bold typography in black and grey and has printed really well on the 540 white board.

The job was part of our unique #LetterpressLive tweeting sessions on Twitter, where we tweet each stage of the process as it happens and is an insight into blush°° and the letterpress process. If you missed the session you can catch up on our Flickr pages.

The monochromatic palette adds to the elegance of the design and the Order of Service which simply has four of the symbols from the design debossed onto Somerset 300gsm, 100% cotton paper, compliments it beautifully.

We were asked by Darren at Do Creative to print this stunning silver anniversary invitation for The Royal Oak Furniture Company. The cover has the simple but extremely effective idea of age rings of a tree surrounding the ’25’.

Darren wanted this image debossed deep into the paper but we suggested we run a very, very, very faint tint rather than no ink at all. So we ran a few test prints with no ink and also some varying tints. We felt this tint gave the impression an warmer feel.

The invitation details were printed inside with the same tint and a second colour taken from the PMS supplied. The #EasterEgg fine delicate detail of the logo held well under the extreme pressure of our printing press and the debossed tint was a strong contrast to the second colour.

The invitations were printed on our 1969 Heidelberg platen onto 300gsm 100% cotton paper, 2 sides. Dimensions: 290 x 145 with a centre crease.
