We are dedicated to the craft of letterpress printing.
Rise and Shine Letterpress is your source for fine letterpress printing. With Heidelberg presses, in-house platemaking, and a creative approach, we specialize in creating high-quality work that brings your design to life.
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.

Printed for designer Danny Harms, these letterpress business cards feature a full flood color on the back. The matching green edge painting continues the color around the sides of the card, for a very green experience. The 600gsm Fluorescent White Crane & Co. Lettra allows for a deep impression. The tight register of our Heidelberg letterpress printing presses allowed the black and green to mesh cleanly, though a subtle .10 point trap was used to ensure there were no gaps between the two colors.
