Project Description

We wanted to showcase aspects of some of our furniture pieces without revealing too much of them, that's why we asked Workhorse Printers to blind press the line drawings on one side around our company name, and on the other side, we wanted to have all the contact information using simple and clean typography, pressed in black with bright yellow edge-painting.

Production Lesson(s)

Overall, we were very pleased with the results. The simple design was brought to life in print with the combination of the blind impression and yellow edge painting.”
