Boy were there a lot of pieces to photograph for this suite we recently printed for Krisztina Hoeber Photography. It took almost as much time to photograph as they did to print! Photographing pieces like this can be tough to capture the full size and the detail. The gold foil adds an extra hurdle since the light has to be just right to catch the shine and reflection.
The suite (above) consisted of six pieces: business cards, note cards and letterheads with matching envelopes, and to hold them all a custom folder. Here’s a photo of the whole suite outside and inside the folder.
Krisztina supplied us with the design for the pieces, which all centered around her logo (the logo is a light blue fluorish with gold foil text). The business cards turned out really nice. The cards were printed 4-up on a sheet of 110lb lettra and then duplexed to a blank sheet of 110# lettra to create a 220lb stock. The cards were duplexed after being printed to hide any impression on the back of the stock.
After being duplexed and cut down to 2.5″ square, we edge colored them in metallic gold to match the gold foil lettering. We printed note cards (110lb Lettra) with matching Lettra envelopes as part of the stationery system.
The letterheads were printed on Lettra text weight stock. The finished sheets have a nice impression and ink coverage. We paired them with side flap #10 envelopes. The side flap envelopes are a nice change to a traditional envelope. They might even make your customers a little happier to get that invoice or correspondence!
The last piece we printed as part of this set was a custom converted folder made from 110lb Lettra. The letterpress and foil was printed on a flat oversized sheet which was then diecut on a large clamshell press and glued to finish. These folders are similar to the ones we produced for 259 Strategies.
Nothing says luxury like a custom folder made from cotton paper with printed with letterpress and foil. We really love how the metallic foil shines on the paper when you hold it up to light.
This photo of the inside of the folder ladies and gentlemen is or last. We’re sorry that you’ve reached the end of the post but don’t worry, check back tomorrow for some more printed goodies.
In the mean time, let us know what you think of Krisztina’s stationery suite!
