Project Description

We wanted to show our clients that quality matters. We went to the best of the best Letterpress printers (In to Ink) and Senekeo Embossing for our clear foil. We used lots of bells and whistles, but there's a lot of restraint in the design, allowing simple, clean type and proper printing prove that even non-designers appreciate stationery with a fine tactile quality.

Production Lesson(s)

Clear foils are difficult to get to the edge ”
