N&A creates amazing interiors around the world and wanted business cards that would elicit their classic style. We printed their cards on 110lb Crane’s Lettra in Fluorescent White with black ink.
A solid border can be tricky enough to keep even and square, but with letterpress a heavy impression can stretch the paper. When a card has a bleed on 1 or more side, they need to be printed on a larger sheet and cut down to ensure that the finished card is right.
The other tough part about these cards is the combination of small type with heavy coverage. N&A wanted a nice solid so we double hit the cards. A double hit is when you run the cards through the press two times so that ink and impression of the same color happens twice. It may require more work and registration is critical, but the finished result is beautiful.
