Lovely simple monogrammed business cards for Interior designer Ellie Leigh Williams. With copper foil one side of a Colorplan Real Grey and a black letterpress print the other side. Wisely, Ellie’s card is designed as such that the debossing from either side do not overlap front to back. This way she can achieve maximum deboss on both sides without compromising the appearance on the other. Great stuff!

Jamie at Sliced Bread Animation wanted a corner of his business card to perfectly match the angle of the orange forward slash. The only way to achieve this was to die cut the cards after printing. The choice of paper adds an elegant feel. Mohawk is a fine paper well suited to letterpress printing, in this case 540gsm Mohawk Superfine.

Brilliant duplexed cards contrasting a Colorplan Dark grey and Citrine 350gsm either side for a 700gsm finished weight. White foil to logo side and a black ink the other. Produced for Made in Chiswick, print management services by the helpful guys at Windsor Jennings.

If you’re looking for a white print on a dark or coloured stock; foil is definitely the way to go, white or coloured letterpress inks can appear dull on dark or coloured stocks whilst the white foil print maintains its opacity really well when pressed to these colorplan stocks. Also great for a glossy finish.

We had the pleasure of working alongside talented designer Alex Farrall to create these great wedding invitations.

Alex came to us with his artwork and the idea of working on a recycled craft stock, after some consideration we advised that this particular stock may be problematic when printing due to the nature of the artwork (with fine vector illustrations in such a large print area). We explored some more options and Alex settled on a much better alternative. Though we always give customers the freedom to have their prints as they like, we strive to give the best possible advice and options to create an absolute premium quality print on every job.

White foil to a Gmund bier Ale, quadplexed to a 1000gsm weight for a nice weighty feel. You have to love the customization options of GF Smith paper stocks!

Business Cards for The Eighty-Eight. A publication curated by Jamie Cullum. Black ink one side on a 540gsm Colorplan Pale grey, with a vibrant neon green edge paint.

In Jamie’s words; “The magazine isn’t about me necessarily, but about things that I’m interested in. I’m really interested in journalism and writing, and I know so many writers, so I thought I could have a go and get some friends involved. Sophie’s a writer, my best friend is a playwright, another runs an amazing burger blog and others interested in short stories. Not many people know that I did English literature and typography, so I got to indulge my passion for fonts and design.”

GEM Creative Services

Georgina at GEM Creative Services was looking for something a little different for her business cards. We talked with her making numerous suggestions and arranged for various samples and tests. One of the tests was a Colorplan/Twist Duplex which really caught our attention. Something to play on the senses.

The green Twist is a wonderfully tactile stock, almost hairy to touch and is a perfect partner to contrast the white Colorplan.

We love these business cards for Hi Ho Designs. Although not quite a full flood it was still a tricky print job. Registration had to be accurate to avoid too much overlap of the colours on the speech bubble and the hoe. The cards, designed by Henry Wyer were letterpress printed in 2 colours, both sides on 540gsm Colorplan.

Leonardo Da Vinci Quote

Originally produced as a letterpress print exclusively for the Japanese market, this Leonardo Da Vinci quote has now been adapted to a greeting card. To mirror the sentiment of the quote, the design was loosely based on classical title page typography and a book cover designed by Jan Tschichold (1902–1974), and it uses the Goudy Old Style typeface designed by Frederic W. Goudy (1865–1947).

Designed by Jim Williams.

We love a deboss and adding a subtle tint can really enhance it. Here’s a great example of a tinted deboss on Colorplan for architects Tigg + Coll. The yellow ink was hand mixed to match the yellow side of the Duplex.
