Letterpress: Why Does it Make You So Badass?

Sponsored Oct. 7, 2019 by Print Peppermint

Tags /

We won’t bore you with the nuances of letterpress printing. We’ll let Wikipedia do that. More importantly is why you should opt for a letterpress business card for yourself or your brand. And quite honestly, it’s 2019 and you ARE a brand! You’re creative. You’re different. You YOLO to the highest degree! And you need a letterpress business card.

Letterpress: Why Does it Make You So Badass?

Don’t tell the other business cards, but letterpress is definitely in our top three favorite printing methods at Print Peppermint. I mean, it has withstood the test of time since the mid-15th century! We can imagine Christopher Columbus handing out his letterpress business cards when he landed in “America.” Think of it as the Rolls-Royce of the print world PLUS you get to add aesthetically pleasing bells and whistles! Here are a few of Print Peppermint’s bells and whistles that pair nicely with the process:

  • Crane Lettra (42 pt) massively thick paper - the standard for letterpress
  • Blind Debossing - your fingers will know before your eyes
  • Painted Edges - shimmery metallic or 15+ standard inks to choose from!
  • Foil Stamping - oooh, so shiny.
  • Unlimited Hand-Mixed Colors - flat, neon, or metallic
  • Custom Die Cut Shapes - Want a card in the shape of your head? No problem!
  • Combine with Digital Printing - gradients and photos
