New Business cards are here

Here are my new business cards. They were letterpressed by Dependable Letterpress in San Francisco. I worked with them before and they always do great jobs. The cards were printed on 179lb Cranes cover stock with 3 colors on the front (1 being just a hint) I was debating between a transparent foil stamp or a blind deboss for the background shape, but decided to go with a hint of color because I wasn’t finding the right foil. The edging wasn’t done by them. I actually needed them asap and that would have taken longer because it’d be outsourced so I just did a test for myself with a few of them.

Then I went on a press check and snapped some photos of the behind the scenes of the printing part. It’s always amazing to see that old machine go at it so precise. Hope you enjoy this post.

P.S. I don’t want people calling me so I photoshoped two of the numbers.
