Project Description

We are a design and social good blog (designgood.com), as well as a branding and digital agency (designgoodstudio.com). Two brands and companies in theory, but closely intertwined. This is the card we hand out for our blog, studio, and our store. So being designers, we pulled out all the stops. We have a thing for metallics, so we used the deeper bronze gold for the letterpress, and the edge paining. We foil stamped our tagline "Create & Contribute" on the back along with our two primary domains. We did half of the print run with orange backs, and half with turquoise, because why not? It's fun to watch clients and partners pick what color they want. We wanted to show off multiple printing techniques, and our skill for combining those techniques, color, and materials.  

Production Lesson(s)

Getting the painted edges to match the bronze metallic we use on the letter pressed side of the card was tricky. Since one is paint and one is ink. Also this project took quite a bit of time to produce since there where so many steps. It had to be letter pressed, foil stamped, duplexed (colored Neenah Astrobrights sheet to Crane's Lettra), then edge painted. ”
