These cards were letterpress printed on 220# arturo with Pantone match and matte metallic gold inks as a 1/1 business card for Phoebe. Phoebe is an excellent graphic designer and designed these cards for her branding collateral as an extension of her already awesome website. I am a big fan of chevrons lately and am totally digging these wide set ones on the back of Phoebe’s card, how about you? Edge painted with a custom mix strawberry ink, thanks Phoebe for being so excellent to work with! I loved how these turned out.

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!

We are already two months into winter here so needless to say, my mind is wandering to more tropical climates. These shipped out for a destination wedding and let me tell you, I SO wish I was somewhere warm right now. We have  lose to eight feet of snow banks on our road in places. These were letterpress printed on lettra paper, 220# as a 2-color job. One thing I’m finding is that lettra – while a great paper – seems to exaggerate the “salty” look when printing large ink areas. It seems that paired with the texture and composition of the paper there is less ink absorbancy when printing a flood in comparison to other papers (Mohawk and Arturo come to mind specifically as having better absorbancy). In the end, I think it depends on what sort of look you are …

Below are some wedding proofs we worked on early this summer for a bride getting married in Montana. While this isn’t where it ended up in the end – the first round explored a western/Victorian theme with imagery and typography. The overprinting would have been so cool on the 4×9 with the sunburst, but alas I can’t wait to show you the finished piece! Until tomorrow….

On occasion we are asked to take one of our existing designs and adapt it to a new color scheme as well as size. Nicole wanted her invites similar to Sarah and Jeff’s but adapted to the 6″ Square invitation size. Her wedding will be a tropical destination wedding and she’s drawing off the bright fuchsia and green hues to convey the type of event she is going for. Below are the proofs adapted to Nicole’s specifications, I can’t wait to show you the finished piece!!

Hello! I feel like I’m back from the dead! I’ll spare you the gory and boring details and save it for business Friday. For now, it’s back to blogging and FINALLY back to work! You may remember Stephanie’s RI proofs for a branding project that I blogged about here. Part of making a brand work for a business is being able to expand it from the logo into the rest of the business collateral, be it business cards, packaging,  promo pieces or website – how you extend your logo into an identity of yourself and brand extension of the initial concept will help make your business stand out from your competition. In Stephanie’s case it was extending her branding into business cards (her website is an awesome execution of brand extension as well). When working on Stephanie’s design for business cards she …
