You may remember these that we showed back as a sneak peek in October. And then of course I was slow to getting around to blogging the full set of photos! Fifi is from Australia and a recent grad and contacted us in hopes that 1) we shipped internationally, and 2) We accepted designed files for press. Lucky for her, we do both and were super excited to print these cards for her. Letterpress printed on 220# Arturo as a 2/1 card, I love the softness of the blushy-pink pantone match paired with the sophisticated black ink/black edge paint. Sized at 2×3.5″ and printed as an initial set of 250 (our minimum opening order for a set of custom or client submitted files) you can get an estimate for yourself here - we are already booking the press for March and April!

letterpress printed on 110# lettra paper, 1/0 inks (registration black) – sold as a set of 50. These were another set of calligraphy calling cards, however the client wanted to have the cards typeset instead of calligraphy. When sending out small sets of calling cards, this is our standard packaging so you can cart them around easily in a clutch, purse or messenger bag. To get yourself a set of letterpress calling cards, check them out and customize to your heart’s content!

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.

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 – …
