These letterpress business cards were done for Dawn of Soiree Floral. She had her logo and Soiree Floral typography but needed help tying it into business card layout and design. The only recommendations were her pantone numbers, the possible exploration of a blind impression, and wanting to see some stripes in the design as a 2.5×2.5″ square letterpress printed card. With her unique logo, I knew it would be so tactile when printed as the tear-drop would reverse out and look embossed when finished.
Her light lavender/plum color scheme was a great change of pace as I haven’t printed purple in ages too. Above is Dawn’s pantone match and below the final printed business set.
Letterpress printed on 110# paper for both pieces, the A6 (4.5×6″) notes were paired with matching un-printed envelopes, and the business cards (2.5×2.5″) were printed as a 2/0 color job with 1/4″ rounded corners.
