Letterpress Business Cards

The Basics

Paper:

The most notable quality of letterpress business cards is undoubtedly the thickness of the paper. We start here. The paper is what gives the deboss from our press that touchable feature that draws you in. We source only the highest grade paper, 220lb Crane’s Lettra. This company has been around for over 200years. Their 220lb letterpress papers are available in fluorescent white, pearl white, ecru (cream) white, and incredibly subtle pastels: blush pink, mint & grey.

Design:

A great logo design is where your company starts. Branding is key and we are skilled at determining what logos and branding will work great for letterpress. Have your own logo or design ready-to-go? Great! You’re half-way there and we’d love to discuss your printing options. Need a design or logo made? We’ve got you. Our in-house designer takes your ideas and will create a logo to fit your brand. We also welcome working with new designers, if you have a particular one already lined up.

Print:

All of our cards are hand die cut (allowing for square or rounded edges) & pressed on our Chandler & Price 10X15 letterpress. We work with you to pick the perfect Pantone colors and details to make these cards something special with each one you hand out. The examples below are all printed using polymer plates made from digital designs. Hand type-set cards are also offered using our in house font(s). If this vintage letterpress aesthetic is what you’re going for, we’re here to make it happen. If you would like to see examples of type-sets and cards please reach out via e-mail.
