Check out these cool letterpress business cards we recently printed for Matthew Miller of Studio Lab. Matthew has a great design aesthetic which you can see in these cards and if you don’t believe us take a look at his website for pictures of the clean and modern spaces he has designed. These cards take full advantage of the letterpress process using a combination of red and gray ink with a blind deboss triangular background. The Studio Lab logo looks great when pressed into the cotton paper. We really love the font he used, all of the little circles that make up the letters creates a unique effect.
The background pattern is blind debossed into the paper, an effect we’ve used before on cards such as Tina Chang and Penelope Jones. We get a lot of people asking about these “special” textured papers, they’re quite often surprised to find out that the pattern is actually a custom design that has been pressed into the paper. Our house cotton stock does have a slight texture which becomes smooth when pressed. The texture of the cotton paper helps to provide a nice contrast to the pressed designs, which is why these background patterns look so cool.
