Using offset + letterpress for your business cards.
Today’s post is a quick update on some offset business cards that we printed for Stepanie of Stephanie Salo Photography, a Sacramento, CA based photographer. She worked with Brand Envy, a Seattle based design firm to develop the logo and layout for the business card. For this project we mixed offset printing with letterpress. The front and back of the cards were offset printed on Mowhawk Cougar 130lb and then duplexed together to create a 260lb stock.
Offset printing is much more capable of laying down even solids of ink than letterpress is. To add some texture to the design, a floral pattern was blind pressed onto the front of the cards which were then die cut with rounded corners. The photo above was taken by Stephanie Salo for her blog series I want to be a Food Photographer (part two).
