We wanted to start this week off with a great set of stationery we designed for 259 Strategies. The custom stationery set consists of business cards, letterhead, and folders. All of the pieces were letterpress printed in a combination of medium cool gray, process blue, and blind impressions. Oh and there is no such thing as too many photos … is there?
The business cards which, were the center of our design focus, were letterpress printed on 110# bright-white cotton stock. The front was printed as a blind impression to highlight the texture of their logo, while the back was printed using all three colors (gray, blue, blind).
To eliminate bruising and allow for a deep impression, the fronts and backs were printed on separate sheets of 110# stock and then glued together prior to cutting. The final cards were equivalent to 220# weight/thickness.
The letterheads were printed on matching 32# text weight bright-white cotton stock. The front of the sheets were letterpress printed in gray and blue for the logo and gray on the bottom for the contact information. The back of the sheets were offset printed as a full flood of process blue with a knockout of the logo.
The last piece of the set were the folders, which were letterpress printed in gray and blind on 110# bright-white cotton paper. We offset printed a flood of blue on the inside of the folders to match the other pieces and add a pop of color. To finish them, the folders were cut using a custom die and glued.
