Modern one-color letterpress business cards.
Marcos Girado, is an art-director, designer, and animator based in Buenos Aires. We love clean simple design, and Marcos’ cards embrace that with bold type and a simple layout. A design like this highlights the impression created with letterpress printing. See more photos of the cards and a video of Marco’s work after the jump.
We letterpress printed the cards using a 220lb fluorescent white stock (Crane’s Lettra). The card is single-sided with 1-color. We used a neutral black ink to achieve a uniform coverage. White space is important in almost any design, balancing the two is key, but especially with letterpress as the textured paper adds to the aesthetic.
The business cards were printed on a 10×15 Heidelberg Windmill using a photopolymer plate. The 2-ply stock is perfect for a deep impression with no bruising on the back of the paper.
