When John first contacted us about printing some letterpress business cards for him we were open to his ideas on the cards. But, when he told us he wanted a card with seven colors we had to make sure he wasn’t joking. With letterpress printing the card has to be run through the press for each color in the design, which is why most people limit the colors to two or at most three. But John was insistent that the design stay the same so off to the press we went with a BIG cup of coffee.
It may have taken a while, but once they were done we knew there was something special about these cards. The cards were printed on thick 100% cotton paper with a kiss impression on the back to minimize bruising on the front of the card. The card was printed with black, light green, and dark green inks on both sides and a blind deboss on front. The blind impression was used to mimic a reflection of the John Lauren Photography logo. More pictures of these great cards are below.
