The Cranky Pressman

The always inspiring Buddy the Elf struck again as the influence for this joyful holiday card! In accordance with the elf diet, the tree on the card consists of candy supported by a sturdy helping of syrup. From a print point of view, the sensational aspect of this job was mixing red and green to get the right color of brown, resulting in three colors out of a two-color print job.

Project Description

The purpose of this card was to send a fun holiday greeting in a traditional printed format to friends, colleagues and clients.

Production Lesson(s)

The biggest challenge was achieving the right brown by mixing the right green and red. It took some experimenting on our part, but ultimately came down to working with a top-notch printer who understood our vision and executed it just right. It was a fun, quick job.”
