We haven’t posted in a while so here’s a quick one, with more to follow in the next few days… promise.
In the world of social media it always amazes us how connections get made and things can happen so quickly (contrary to the “slow” process of letterpress). Through the Twitter-verse, we met Kevin September who wanted unique hand-crafted businesses cards for a trip to a Los Angeles media conference. After a little e-chatting, we met over coffee at our local Starbucks and had a great conversation about the arts in Oakville, design, advertising, letterpress – eventually we got to the business card brief. What we find amazing is how many internet professionals we encounter who want printed business cards or wedding invitations. In the world of pixels, designers and art directors rarely get to actually make anything physical anymore. So we love when people in that world still appreciate the finer details of letterpress printing.
We designed these cards for Kevin who is truly a real Storyteller. Hopefully his trip will be a little more fruitful with these in hand.
PRINT SPECS: Standard 3.5″ x 2″ / one-over-one colour / printed on Mohawk Strathmore 110# Bright White Wove (plus we duplexed the cards to make them an extra thick 220#)
