Gold Foil Wedding Invitations for Elizabeth and Christopher

Foil stamping is quickly becoming one of our favorite letterpress techniques for wedding invitations. The smooth, metallic foil adds such an interesting contrast to the textured cotton paper, it’s hard to resist twisting the invitation to see it glinting in the light. Printed on 220lb. Crane’s Lettra with gold foil stamping, these invitations are a good example of the perfect kind of typography for foil. Larger type with thicker lines helps to show off the foil color, and the bolder lines help us to press the paper more deeply so it has a beautiful letterpress impression.

Letterpress Business Cards for Mass Appeal

Mass Appeal, as they say it, is in the business of celebrating creative instigation. Through their web and print media you can gain exposure of art, music and culture that’s impossible to find anywhere else. They tasked us with printing business cards that were thick enough to create an impact, but thin enough to carry and distribute. Colorplan “Citrine” was a perfect match for their brand color, which we paired with matching Colorplan “Ice White” for the duplex reverse side. The two-tone effect of the Mass Appeal graffiti graphic was created using a transparent gloss varnish, which is echoed in the two-tone edge profile of the duplex cards. The back was finished off with a dense black letterpress ink.
