Tired of white business cards? Take a peek at these …
Louisa and Hermes contacted us to get new business cards for Luckette Jewellery, located in North Palm Beach, FL. Luckette is all about creating fun one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry using gems and precious metals. The finished card were really nice and have a different look than a traditional white business card. See photos of their business cards and some custom pieces of jewelry they’ve designed, after the break. We also discuss some options for colored stock.
Here are 3 different stereoscopic photos. You know the routine:
cross your eyes and bam 3D magic!
We opted for a more traditional layout and design for the cards. The cards were printed in two-colors: transparent white and metallic silver. We ran the trans white first with just enough ink to get contrast between the design and the paper. The metallic silver ink was second, we actually ran it through twice to make sure the text had a nice shimmer to it.
Louisa and Hermes were fans of the Birk Billingsley business cards we printed a while back. We used Wausau’s Royal Complements stock which comes in 100lb cover. The paper is perfect since it takes a nice impression. It also works great for embossing, die-cutting, and foil stamping. Here are the color choices for Royal Complements:
Luckette’s cards were printed on the midnight blue color stock. We haven’t tried them all but we’ve used eclipse black, haute red, and citron on a few different projects and it always works great.
We wouldn’t be able to put our stamp of approval on these cards unless they met a certain weight requirement, and 100 lbs. wasn’t cutting it. After printing, but before trimming, we duplexed the cards to a blank sheet of 100# cover to create a 200# card. Duplexing can beef up any card from light weight to #heavyweight.
Who knew a hand jitter could create a cool effect (above-right). The final size of the cards was 3.5″ x 2″. Careful cutting takes a little longer (the border around the circle pattern was pretty small) but it’s not like we could glue it back together if it was wrong. Uneven borders is one thing that drives us nuts!
Here are some pieces posted on the Luckette Jewellery facebook page, we’re in love with the anchor piece!
