Texture, texture, texture!

Friday February 4, 2011

Here at Evolution Press we believe there is a fine line between fashion and print. Where there is form, texture, and color, there is inspiration.

Since the invitation for The Bravern’sevent Fashion’s Night Out uses color and texture, our client, Square Tomato, wanted a premium paper that would show off their design. They chose 179# Crane’s Cover in Fluorescent White – a hefty cotton sheet that provides great stability for multiple press runs.  First, we laid the Spot colors down on our offset press.  Next, we debossed both sides of the sheet -including the fine texture of a woman’s scarf and the top of her couture gown- which created a voluptuous, tactile look.  The final touch came when we die-cut the card to give it its elegant, rounded corners.  It’s the fine detail that makes this piece not just unique but a stand-out.

Love What You Do

How did you kick off the New Year? Here at Evolution Press, we wanted to do something extra special to thank our much-loved creative clients for a great year. So we took the opportunity to collaborate with Todd Karam at TKTJ Design to create a one-of-a-kind calendar.

The paper – Savoy #118 cover in brilliant white from Reich Paper – was our #1 choice for this piece. Savoy’s calendared surface makes for minimal paper fiber shed, keeping the offset-printed solid colors clean and crisp. Given the malleable softness of this 100% cotton sheet, the emboss, deboss, and letterpress elements all have optimum visual effect.

We are thrilled with the end result. Reich Savoy #118 cover provided an excellent surface for us to execute Todd’s inspired creative design work, and allowed our press skills to shine: a great way to start the New Year. Happy 2011!
