ITALIC Studio business cards

Thursday February 28, 2013

The gang over at Italic have been sending us some really great projects recently. We’ve also printed their business cards, which are a nice example of their work. Simple, bold and smart.

The design lends itself to our production processes wonderfully.  They selected a palette of four paper colors that were distributed randomly during the printing.  Black letterpress on the front of the card is juxtaposed against the duplexed gray sheet on the back, stamped with white foil. The beauty of duplexing colored sheets is that the cards essentially have a full flood of color on each side without the need for ink, and when the cards are trimmed to size they reveal a crisp pop of color on the edge.

So there you have it.  Smart design, three processes and of course, fine printing.

Eddie Bauer Bookmark

Tuesday March 6, 2012

To create a nice heavy sheet that could standup to letterpress and foiling without bruising we duplexed 120# Eames Painting Cover to 80# Classic Crest canyon brown cover. The Eddie Bauer logo was foiled with clear foil and the copy side was letter-pressed in a custom brown to match the canyon brown stock, followed up with die-cutting the bookmark was then carefully hand assembled with custom orange eyelets and leather cord.

Evolution Press Coaster Project

Friday September 2, 2011

/

A personal project of ours, this 4 Coaster Set with custom packaging was designed, printed, and assembled in house. Inspired by historical printer’s marks and bookplates, the Evolution Press coasters were done in a limited edition run, and were being given away at our Annual Picnic this year. The entirety was produced on Reich Paper, aside from the brown coaster backing.

The coasters were letterpress printed on double thick paper, which we duplexed in house, to give them that luxurious yet durable look and feel. Custom packaging is something we love working on, and so this was an exceptionally satisfying project for us to work on.
