Brathw8 Studios Letterpress Card

Metallic silver ink really comes to life on black paper on these cards.

For some of our clients, it’s not really convenient to pop in to the studio. If you can’t come to the studio, how can you see our work? Well we hope that this blog is a great first start. But, if you’ve got a letterpress project you’re working on and want to get your hands on some samples, send us your inquiry with specs for the job and we’ll send you some samples. Find out more about samples and how to get them after the break.

We print a wide range of projects from business cards, to posters and wedding invitations using methods like letterpress, thermography, offset, and foil stamping. Make sure to let us know what your working on so we can get you the appropriate samples. If there’s a specific piece we’ve done that you’d like to see, let us know. We have a limited supply of certain samples so if we’re out of it ,we’ll try to pull a similar piece.

Brathw8 Studios Letterpress Card

We wanted to share these business cards we printed for Mario Brathwaite, owner of Brathw8 Studios – a photography studio based in the Washington, DC area. As with most people, Mario wasn’t able to come to the studio to see the kind of business cards we can create. We sent him some samples and then worked with him to finalize the design.

The final piece was a duplexed business card with black stock on the front and white paper on the back. The fronts were letterpress printed in silver metallic ink for the logo on black 110lb stock. The logo on the front maintains a slight shimmer even though its printed on uncoated paper. Want more information on how metallics prints on paper? Check out the blog post-tag: Silver Metallic. The back of the card was printed in black ink on 110lb Lettra (fluorescent white).

By duplexing the stock we can create a nice impression on each side and then glue them together to create the laminated card.
