Schrift & Farbe’s Letterpress Business Cards

Letterpress Business Card Post

Just got done letterpress printing the new Schrift & Farbe Design Group business cards. Letterpress business cards are a thing of beauty. I have always been impressed whenever anyone has handed me one. Usually the paper has a delicious texture and the slight indent of the printing adds another surface dimension. The look of a letterpress printed business card is luxurious and decidedly high end. We had created our business card layout and now we needed to have our cards letterpress printed. It was awesome to do the printing myself. I have always watched with amazement and wonder as pressmen adjust and tinker with the control panels on large presses during press checks. It was great to not only design the cards, but also to mix a custom dark cool grey ink color and hand pull each printed sheet. I used 110 pound Crane Lettra paper, which has the feel of fabric and the look of a handmade art paper. The cards turned out fantastic and I look forward to letterpress printing again in the near future. Take a peek at the photos below for a closer look.
