SkySync Cards #BackToBusiness

After a long holiday weekend it can be hard to get back to business but if you run your own business you know that the work never stops.

Today's #BackToBusiness post features several ways to transform your business card into something that people will remember and even better, hold on to.

We designed these custom cards for SkySync to showcase their new branding. The blind pattern on the back is hypnotic, the angled lines catch the light differently and the outlined effect draws your eye to the logo.

The two-tone logo was complimented with a dark gray ink for the text and a neon orange edge color.

The diecut on the front of the card reveals the colored paper in the middle - the end result is a more 3D effect for the SkySync logo.

In our latest installment of the Back to Business series, we're sharing a four-color letterpress business card for Color Concept Theory.

Stella Artois Note Cards

Today we're featuring a custom note card set we recently produced for Stella Artois. The notecards were letterpress printed in 3 colors with insanely-tight register to match the high end styling of the Stella brand.

To add some extra refinement to the finished pieces, we edge colored them in a metallic gold to match. Some other details: the cards were printed on 220# lettra, ink was vegetable-oil based, and the final size was A2 (4.25" x 5.5"). 

UPDATE: The cards were featured on the newly launched The Beauty of Letterpress blog by Neenah Paper (link).

Thick isn’t just for letterpress

Happy Friday! We recently printed business cards for The Happy Cloud designed by Cainkade and thought they were perfect to share on the blog. Why? A lot of people think that the only way to get nice thick business cards is to go letterpress.

For these cards, they wanted a smooth satin finish and that's something digital printing is perfect for. To give the cards extra weight, we duplexed two sheets of Neenah classic crest together to get a 600gsm business card.

Solid + Register + Knockout

We wanted to share these business cards we printed for Franck Sikorski because they're a great example of solid coverage and tight registration.

The red and gray overprint each other and the knockout in both the red and gray creates a faux-emboss effect (the white part of the print appears embossed instead of debossed). 

Designing for letterpress with knockouts can create a unique effect, if you have questions on what works or doesn't post it in the comments or send us your design.

Apple Green Edge Coloring

Today we're sharing business cards we printed for Mac Reviewcast, an Apple podcast that reviews hardware, software, and websites. The cards demonstrate the pop that edge coloring can add to any business card.

The cards were printed on Arturo, a fine european made paper perfect for letterpress. The stock takes a beautiful impression and its thick edges are perfect edge coloring.  The 3D Mac Reviewcast logo is captured quite nicely in 2 colors and the impression lends dimension to the look.

To see more photos of the cards, check out our portfolio: Mac Reviewcast.

Non-Profit Stationery

We design and print for a big variety of companies from Fortune 500's to single-person startups and the common theme among them all is the passion they have for what they do. It's an added treat when you get to work for people who love to help others and that's what non-profit Inspire Bright does.

We designed a custom stationery set which includes: Letterhead, Business Cards, Note Cards, Stickers, and Buttons. Everything was flat printed which keeps the cost down, but the trick is using quality paper so the finished pieces have a great look / feel.

6 Color Business Card

It's not every day that a customer asks you to print a 6 color business card. Because letterpress is a single color process, most cards we print range from 1 to 3 colors to keep cost down. To keep the appearance of the business cards consistent with the rest of the branding, we printed 5 unique pantone colors and black ink (the 6th).

All of our inks are mixed by hand so we've got Pantone matching down to a science. We've even picked some of our favorite handbags from the Carine Letessier collection, check them out after the break.

Metallic Ink + Museum Board

Today we're featuring business cards we printed for Damon Shields, who runs a creative agency based in Philadelphia. Damon designed the  cards, which were printed on ultra thick archival museum board using metallic gold ink.

Normally we duplex stock to make it thicker but this stock is so thick we don't have to. Even though the paper is stiff, it takes a nice impression with no bruising on either side
