A few posts back we wrote about a new service that we’re offering at Dolce Press, edge painting (“We’re on EDGE”). It is a great way to add a pop of color to a letterpress print and based on the response from our customers we’ve found out that they are as excited about it as we are. We selected these two cards edged in orange and red for photographers Jeff Holt and David Burke as a continuation of our post Photographers ♥ Letterpress.
Here are some pictures of Jeff’s cards which are slimmer than regular cards and were printed on our extra thick cotton stock in orange and gray ink. You can see the stacks of business cards in the background waiting to dry after being painted. We love the combination of gray and orange used in Jeff’s cards.
David’s cards turned out just as great with a vibrant red edge color painted on the same thick paper. The cards are letterpress printed on both sides in a dark gray and red ink. David’s logo, a two-color camera featured on the back of the card gives the cards a unique look.
