THANK YOU THANK YOU! For letting me take a little break with my family for the school spring break. I feel so refreshed and ready to hit the presses (and proofs) running hard tomorrow (today is my last day of bliss :).

If you are reading via RSS, pop over to the blog for a quick peek on the updated design just in time for the National Stationery Show in May! We’ll also be launching our main domain (which has been quite past due) here this week at DingabtPress.com which will tell in more detail about the services we currently offer regarding design and letterpress printing as well as have a portfolio of our current work. It’s going to be exciting!

For now, I thought I’d post some business card eye candy for you that shipped out a few months ago – boy do I have a lot to share over the next few weeks!

Virginia of the lovely Sweet & Savory had a beautiful logo calligraphied by Lisa Ridgely of Pen & Ink that was so fun to work with. We took virginia’s typographic styling from her website and created a simple layout for her cards. The reverse print sometimes poses challenges on press, so when plating we had to bulk up the type and logo that was to be reversed out so that when it printed it would optically look like the digital proofs. These cards were printed on my favorite stock the 600GSM eco-rag paper by Legion. This paper was so soft and supple and it takes a beautiful impression.

The business cards were a simple 1/0 custom color match in a curry/ochre color so we didn’t lose detail to the contact information. They were also edge painted to match giving them a lovely pop of deliciousness. If you like beautiful photography paired with awesome recipes, you won’t want to miss Virginia’s goodness. Her chocolate mousse looks divine, I might have to make some later today!
