Project Description

I used to print a new letterpress business card every year since 2009. After 3 cards, I needed to push further for my rebrand under MrCup. Issued at a very limited quantity, these "coins" are my new business cards.

Production Lesson(s)

This is a great idea. If the letterpress business card had a WOW effect, this one is more a WOOOOOOOOOOOW one.”
