Project Description

Self-promotional business card. The ideas was to design a very simple card with an interesting cardboard texture for a good first impression. I used a plique black cardboard, printing on one ink(silver mixed with a light green).

Production Lesson(s)

Printing silver over this type of cardboard is tricky, you have to leave them dry for many days and avoid putting all pages together, otherwise the ink will pass from one sheet to another one. However, the result is very good and the cost very low for being one ink.”
