When this greeting card showed up in our pile of mail we both stopped what we were doing to look at it, touch it, analyze it, and talk about it. There are few projects that manage to stop us both, and this one sure did.

Project Description

We're proud of our old-school machines and wanted to give them some credit while celebrating the new year. They can do amazing things!

We decided to combine some different techniques we do in-house, foil stamping, laser cutting, multilevel laser engraving, manual folding, gluing and finishing. Every member of the team worked on that project, even the cat! Well, just chasing birds on the window...

Mathilde, our in-house designer, did an amazing job modeling the KSBA cylinder and testing different decomposition levels to give it depth. She also did the front cover creation, in steampunk style and using real parts of the cylinder to compose the 2016.

The print and fabrication part was a nice challenge, tight registering, precise makereadies to achieve a consistent foil covering on both fine lines and areas.

Production Lesson(s)

A designer who knows perfectly technical limitations and constraints can do amazing things, and fabrication is so much easier after. Always ask your printer/finisher his expertise before starting a project, he can make you save lots of time and money!”
