The folks at iJet Onboard wanted a business card that would stand out. With the combination of offset printing, letterpress, and a die cut, they certainly got one. Notice the subtle gradient in the halo.

These adorable paper bunny hang tags came to us via Amy Redmond. They were produced for Kata Golda, an artist who works primarily producing hand sewn felted children’s toys, books, and accessories. The use of letterpress and 100% cotton paper fit perfectly with Kata’s aesthetic, which features handcrafted detail and craftsmanship. The bunnies were first letterpress printed on 236# cotton Reich Paper and then die cut into the whimsical bunny shape. They are two-sided and feature a hole at the top of the bunny ear, which was created with the die cut press pass. This hole will be used to pass ribbon or twine through. This piece went through 3 passes total. Post print production, these bunnies were clothed in felt, and hand sewn with an initial on the front by Kata Golda.

Robert Bennett’s business card utilized a variety of print methods. The bold U, which takes center stage on the card, is die cut out, creating not only an iconic logo, but a useful tool; the business card can now be used as a bookmark. Printed on Eames Natural White Cover, with letterpress printing on one side and offset printing on the other, we think these business cards are sturdy, useful, and most importantly, memorable.

Innovation was well represented on this dramatic card design created by our friends at Graphiti Associates. The paper needed to standup to Five passes so for stability our choice was 179# Crane’s Crest Cover. First, they went through our Offset Press for a flood with reversed out type. We then had the cards laser cut. After that, they were letterpress printed 2 colors and diecut to add the final touch of rounded corners.

Nothing enhances a celebration quite like a collection of letterpress printed Drink Coasters. This featured collection was designed and printed in-house, with the festive holiday spirit in mind. We chose 220# Crane’s Crest 100# Cotton paper for its stability and thickness.At double the weight of their standard 110# sheet, the letterpress impression is especially emphasized with depth and texture.In addition to its soft look and touch, Crane’s Crest 220# has stability, which is especially important for a Coaster project.
The darker paper used was Eskaboard – a heavy duty kraftboard that has the appearance of chipboard, but with more sturdiness and a more calandered surface area. Eskaboard – like 220# Crane’s Crest – has the ability to stand up to the demands of use and handling, while retaining a luxurious look and feel.
