Project Description

Another Colour is a design agency based in Sydney, Australia. Our dynamic identity features a logo that appears in an array of colours, literally demonstrating the company's name.

When designing our  business cards we knew we wanted a quality letter-press printed piece that would make a great first impression and start a conversation with prospective clients.

Each employee at Another Colour has a self-assigned colour which they use for their online profile and in their e-signature. To carry this through to our business cards, corresponding fluorescent inks and papers were chosen.

Our details were letterpressed in fluorescent inks onto Crane Lettra 300gsm, a toothy stock ideal for letterpress. For the card backs, the company emblem was blind embossed onto matching coloured papers from the Neeneh Astrobrights range: a fun neon-coloured collection. After printing, both sides were bonded to produce a series of colourful cards with an impressive weight.

Production Lesson(s)

With limited quality printers specialising in letterpress in Australia, we looked to Dolce Press in the US to produce our cards. Shipping added to the print timing, but it meant we could use neon papers (not available in Australia). Local printers were not keen to blind deboss and duplex our cards but Dolce Press were able to achieve a sharp result without any issue. ”
