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.

Letterpress Business Cards for Rachel Wunsch

Graphic designers love to put us to the test. These business cards for Rachel Wunsch are the perfect example. They feature a solid reverse graphic with full-bleed on the front, with a blind deboss on the back. After printing, they were carefully duplexed to preserve the deep impression.

To create duplex letterpress business cards, the fronts and backs are printed on separate sheets.  Then, a thin film of glue is applied . The two sheets are hand aligned and are pressed together to adhere the glue. After drying, the cards are trimmed to final size to reveal a seamless edge. This project was a challenge to print, but the result was worth the effort.
