Project Description

With these cards we wanted to show our clients that with the use of just one single color, you can still vary a lot in your designs and get fresh results. The pattern was perfect for letterpress and looks very appetizing. It really comes off the paper when displayed next to each other.

Production Lesson(s)

The cutting had to be done very precise because the pattern had to fit perfectly onto the rest of the cards. Next time I will try to print larger sheets so more cards can be printed next to each other. I guess this will ease up the cutting.”
