Mama’s Sauce, a letterpress and screenprinting studio in Orlando has made some nice self-promotional business cards. What stands out about these cards is the atypical method of inking and pressing. In this case the type is knocked out on the plate during pressing which makes it appear embossed. And if that wasn’t enough, the cards are duplexed for extra thickness.

We wanted to make a card that was super simple, yet very complicated. Something that at first glance would seem easy to figure out, but after touching would have the recipient asking how it was done, even if they’re a printer themselves.
