Project Description

I wanted a super-thick card with some heavy duty impression.

Production Lesson(s)

This is the second business card I have had Mama's Sauce letterpress for me. The first one was beautiful, but it lacked the thickness I wanted. Don't get me wrong, I loved the card and I got a great deal for them (they were running a 250 cards for $99 deal!). The impression was also really nice and deep. ┬áSo this time around, I asked for their advice: "How do I maintain the impression quality of the last card, but increase the overall thickness?" After some discussion, Mama's Sauce suggested we use the 220C Lettra instead of the 110C. It made for a substantial increase in cost, but it was totally worth it. The new card is sturdy as Hell and the impression is even better than last time. They smushed it real good.”
