This birth announcement was a special one for my very own baby girl, Eden.
This announcement was letterpress printed using 4 colors on a metallic paper called Reich Shine. We had fun with this one and took advantage of some unique tricks such as overprinting and a split ink fountain. The end result is a print that actually appears to have more than the original 4 colors used.

This letterpressed business card for Ron Roark’s Mindpunch creative service is one of our recent favorites. Ron makes very wise use of artwork and ink coverage for letterpress printing. When the brain illustration was pressed into the paper the negative spaces in the illustration “pillow” up a bit around the impression. This added dimension really makes for a memorable business card that people won’t soon forget. Letterpress printed in 2 spot colors on Neenah Neutech 160# paper.

Tosh and Victoria Brown are a design duo to be reckoned with. So it only makes sense that when the time came to announce the arrival of their firstborn they’d do it up right. The custom illustration is a perfect graphical representation of them both and really captures their style.
We letterpress printed this using 4 spot colors on 100% cotton Cranes Lettra paper.
