Project Description

We wanted our business cards to express who we are. A card that when exchanged, conveyed our passion for intelligent and custom design.

The cards feature several processes: laser-cutting of the Boab logo to reveal the contrasting paper colour below, foiling of our names in copper and a single spot colour ink for our contact details. Finally the two paper stocks (Colorplan Stone and Dark Grey 350gsm) were duplexed for maximum effect.

Production Lesson(s)

One thing we learned with foiling is that to get the best results, the minimum size of the stroke is 0.4pt. So we had to go in and slightly tweak a few of the characters so that all parts were thick enough for the foil block.

Also, because of the laser cut, an additional sheet of card stock had to be placed in between each sheet of business cards before being guillotined so that the edges of the laser cut would not be compressed.”
