If X marks the spot, asterisk marks three spots here. As in 3 spot colors used. (Man, print jokes are not easy). These rounded-corner business cards have a lovely texture achieved by the overlaying of two grays as well as some additional debossing.

Project Description

Last spring we had the pleasure of meeting Justin Demers, one of the masterminds behind StillMotion, a filmmaking/storytelling/education based company working both in Canada and the US. Justin came to us with a design that definitely pushed our skills as printers in all the best ways. Not unlike the work they do on a daily basis, their cards were a full production and required tight registration, flooding, reverse debossing, pantone matching and rounded corners.

Production Lesson(s)

We recently told someone that a good printer will know every variable and hang-up on a job before plates even get processed. This is what we were taught long ago and is the ethos we live by.”
