Cure for the Common wanted to provide Tunnel Vision Records with distinctive business cards to match their new identity system. By screenprinting white ink on black card stock, they achieved stylish cards with a bonus: slightly raised ink means you can feel the grooves from the logo’s record.

Project Description

The client needed business cards to compliment a new identity system, and we wanted to do something unique and memorable. The branding is all black and white so we chose to screenprint white ink on a black stock. An added bonus to this method was that the slightly raised ink lets you feel the record grooves in the logo, adding to the overall concept and impact.

Production Lesson(s)

I had to make a small adjustment to the logo to come within the tolerances of the screens at this size. The logo on the front pushed the limits of the line weight that could be held, and it came out beautifully.”
