Cheers to designer Austin Dunbar for hand-stamping and embossing his business cards. Though it took more time, and beer, than he anticipated, the result deserves a toast.

Project Description

The studio is concerned with crafting authentic experiences for brands large and small. We took this same approach for our business collateral. All of the business cards were printed on one side and then hand stamped with two custom stamps and blind embossed with a DB&Co logo. The business cards were made on French Paper 140lb Speckletone Starch White and Pop-tone Sno Cone.

Production Lesson(s)

A lesson learned is that you better have a fridge full of beer cause hand stamping both sides and embossing 500 cards takes more time, and more beer than you think.”
