This business card is a great example of when a printer pushes its own boundaries of knowledge and comfort levels—the result, is of course, stunning.

Project Description

This wonderful business card we have produced in order to show the high quality of materials we use, possibilities of traditional printing technologies as well as their unique beauty. The card is produced from red and chocolate brown matte papers. Red paper is glued in between two sheets of brown paper achieving very delicate bright red card edge. On one side we have letterpressed our slogan, and on the other side we€“ copper foiled our decorative stamp. The main highlight of the card is a sticker that is printed on white matte high quality label paper. The sticker is printed in two traditional printing technologies: silkscreen printing and intaglio.

Production Lesson(s)

The most exited adventure was label printing. We learned which and how to use different traditional technologies to get nice overlays and how to not loose picture quality and subtle layering of different inks by combining those different technologies. That was really great experience! ”
