Your Letterpress Business Cards

Well, maybe the title of this post is a little misleading, because the letterpress business cards aren't yours, they are for YOUR LETTERPRESS at Joie Studio. I wanted to show these off because I am so so tickled as to how gorgeous the cards came out. These were printed on Joie Studio's newest house paper, Reich Savoy 118lb in bright white. The back of the card was flat printed with a gorgeous pattern and the front holds both letterpress and flat printing. The reason I did this was because I wanted the "Your Letterpress" signature to actually look like a signature -- you know, when you use a ball point pen and it presses down into the paper and leaves an impression after you've signed...kind of like what happens after the printing press presses the paper into the plate...
I think the results are absolutely fabulous! With "Your Letterpress" as the only thing letterpress printed, it really makes the "Your Letterpress" pop just a little bit more -- adding a textural element to the card. PLUS the card is for a letterpress studio!

The dual printing method on this card is quite awesome and I'm totally in love with the result. And the best part is that since it's flat printed, it costs less for me to do this double sided card than it would have to do the 2-color card just for the front (nevermind the front of the card is actually 3-color).
