What is better than picking up a piece of clothing or accessory with a letterpress tag?
We love seeing our print work whether its when people hand out business cards, when they’re used in portfolios, or as a hang tag. Rabbitneck + Dotty creates hand bags and small leather goods among other things, based in Brooklyn, NY.
Laura Tiffin-O’Rourk, principal of Rabbitneck + Dotty, sent us her business card and hang tag designs to print. Both pieces were letterpress printed, the business cards in black, and the hang tags in black, pink (PMS 226U), and caramel (PMS 4645U) ink colors.
The hang tags were printed on duplexed 220lb Lettra and cut down to 3.25″ x 1.25″. A 1/8″ hole was punched in the top middle of the tag. The tag design is simple, balanced, and bright.
The business cards were printed on 110lb Lettra and cut down to 3.5″ x 2″. What we think is neat about Laura’s design for the business cards is her mix and use of font styles (instead of using color) that emphasize and separate the different bits of information on the card.
Do you look at the tags you see on clothing and goods you buy?
