These calling cards shipped out recently and were done in the Spencerian Script Calligraphy. I love seeing all the different names that we do for calling cards. They feel sort of like a fingerprint. While the design is the same between cards, they all still feel so unique because of the nuances of the flourishes and swashes within the lettering. I think in another life I would have loved to be a calligrapher, such a beautiful art that I have so much respect for! These were letterpress printed on 110# lettra paper, with Gravely/Cement ink and a red edge-paint. A great way to still get letterpress cards if you are on a budget, these are one of my favorite products to produce! Get a set here for the new year or gift them for the holidays.

Never one to follow tradition, I received a lovely email from a colleague yesterday morning wondering if I’d hold my Cyber Monday promotions and instead launch them on Tuesday as part of a Letterpress Tuesday promotion – specifically showcasing letterpress artisans and their holiday goodies on sale. I of course opted out of Cyber Monday and am happy to announce that for the next 24 hours (YES, RIGHT NOW) you can get 25% off ANYTHING in our online shop until midnight tonight (MST). These black letterpress calling cards were printed on a black 80# coverstock (I think it was AstroBrights paper). Black can be tricky on press because letterpress inks are very transparent and do not get good opacity when printing on dark papers. We like to recommend a color mix with opaque white to help bulk up the color (PMS Silver …

Calling cards never get old for me. Seeing the calligraphy by Kathryn of Della Carta is magical every time it shows up in my inbox. These were letterpress printed on 110# luxe white paper in gravel ink with papaya edge painting.  Sold in sets of 50, this is a great way to get into a set of calling cards without the investment of meeting the press minimum of 250 cards for a custom print order. Get an estimate here, these are always a big hit for gifts for the holidays and turn around super quick!

Now I know I say this a lot about my clients but Natalie was SUPER awesome to work with. While we explored what felt like hundred of options, Natalie was really patient with us as we worked on her designs, layouts and typography to create a minimalist rockstar card for her new consulting venture. When we finally got close to the design that Natalie wanted, it was a matter of then taking that and figuring out color and iconography to organize her information. This type was beautifully small and I love how petite it looks with their little matching dingbats and knocked-out type. I love the red on these too – it was a really rich and bloody color to print! Thanks Natalie for working with us and being so inspiring to work with. I am so happy with how these turned …

Hey guys and dolls, sorry for the absence, it’s been CRAZY around here :) I wanted to touch a little more on edge painting here as it’s such a mystery to so many people. Often we get requests for estimates for edge painting, but with the question, how can I cut my cost? Many people think that edge painting will only look good on our 220# super-thick stock (anna & jason is a great example of that).  However, with more saturated edge inks, it can still give a pop of color on a thinner stock. Our trick to good edge painting is making sure we have a really flush and straight trimmed edge pre-painting. The better the edge (read: sharp blade) the easier it is to paint those thinner edges. With Elizabeth’s calligraphy calling cards, she wanted a hot pink on the …
