Modern Letterpress Design by Ruthie Murray
Ruthie creates truly one of a kind modern handmade jewelry so she wanted business cards that reflected the art of what she does. She chose letterpress cards because of the handmade and unique look of each print, something that would highlight her modern designs. Her cards were printed on our 8×12 C&P OS that was made around the turn of the 20th century.
We used our house stock which is 100% cotton and made from reclaimed cotton scraps (110lb fluorescent white). The cards were letterpress printed using 2 colors: Teal (Pantone 3245U), Medium Gray (Pantone 424U), and Blind (Inkless). Light colors can be tricky as fluctuations in the amount of ink on press can affect the resulting color … so we have to pay extra attention to it! Following printing, the cards were trimmed to 2.5″ square.
