[Behind the scenes] Custom letterpress calling cards, our design for a neurologist

The custom letterpress calling cards i’m talking about today were created by us from scratch. I really enjoy creating designs for business cards, so when i was given a free hand with these i was ecstatic! I played with a bunch of various fonts in order to find the perfect one to emphasize professionalism and seriousness, while at the same time leaving a long lasting impression by adding the brain logo. I may not be a neurologist like the owner of these custom letterpress calling cards, but i’m pretty sure this is how one would like to come across as: professional, serious and reliable.

Creating designs for letterpress cards is definitely not as easy as it may seem as there are a bunch of things to take into consideration. Letterpress printing is completely different from regular, digital printing. The most important thing to mention is that if you searched “less is more” you should get “letterpress” as a result. You know how in fashion there was that thing that Coco Chanel said: “Once you’ve dressed, and before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off.” This works perfectly for letterpress printing also. Well actually doing it, actually creating a design that is airy, yet with a powerful impression, simple, yet elegant, well that is not that easy. Moreover, there are tons and tons of available free fonts out there. Some of them look a lot better letterpress printed than others, so you need to envision each one and carefully choose the best option. Proportions are also very important; while you want the information to be visible, you don’t want it to take over the entire space. At the same time, don’t let the logo entirely overshadow the information. There has to be a balance, you have to find the right proportions so that they represent your brand, company, profession as a whole.

I got a little carried away there, didn’t i? Well anyway, this template is available to be used for various other professions as well; i’d change the brain logo with another to accommodate the requested profession. Also, i absolutely love the color of the Biscuit card stock so i plan o recommending it whenever and wherever i can! Here are the short technical details about these custom letterpress calling cards:

  • 450gsm Biscuit (light brown / chocolate milk) card stock, one side printing, 9 x 5 cm, black ink, custom design

[Behind the scenes] Custom letterpress business cards for TwoFour Creative Coalition

The custom letterpress business cards for TwoFour Creative Coalition’s Rich were really our ideal letterpress order. Be it a seller or buyer, you have that ideal transaction in mind: if you’re a buyer, you want the item to fit your needs and preferences, the seller to be nice, the shop to look appealing and so on; if you’re a seller, you want the client to be reasonable, to be satisfied with your items, to come back for a second time etc. So there are these general ideas each buyer and each seller has depending on various characteristics. Well for us, the letterpress business cards for TwoFour Creative Coalition were precisely that: ideal transaction. Conversation went smoothly, design was perfect, letterpress printing was a blast. The business cards and letterpress tags we did for Printsmith and the project we’ve just wrapped up were like this as well, so that makes me think that there’s a bright future ahead! Hehe!

Anyway, here are the short technical details of the letterpress business cards for TwoFour Creative Coalition’s Rich:

– 450gsm Snow White card stock, one side printing, 3.5 x 2″ (inches), black ink

FPS is currently working on: Funky Box Studio letterpress business cards

Even though our upcoming summer holiday is all i can think about, we’re still working hard on our Funky Box Studio letterpress business cards… among other things. I did mention before that we’re also working on a couple of custom letterpress business cards order (they’re so minimalist you can’t help falling in love with them! Aaaand one of the two is my own creation! *feeling proud*) and also a new letterpress tags order (since we’re using the card stock you haven’t really seen in our photos yet, i’m really excited to complete this project!). Nevertheless, i can only show you photos of our own Funky Box Studio letterpress business cards.

We’ve opened FBS more than 2 years ago, but i have been struggling to find a font and logo that i really liked. I was in a constant searching process and i wasn’t happy with any of the outcomes. Well finally, 2 years and 400 sales later, yours truly is completely happy with FBS’s logo and font design! Yeah, it only took me this much… and i still have to choose the card stock!

I can’t wait to show you photos from the printing process! That’s gonna be fun since we’ll also have 2 ink colors here. Playing with colors again!

In the mean time, don’t forget about our Christmas in July letterpress promotion! Free shipping for any order of letterpress printed items is definitely something you should take advantage of because finally, it doesn’t matter where you’re from! We’ll take care of all the shipping issues! We’d also highly appreciate it if you helped us spread the word! *bows*

Our Christmas in July letterpress promotion is already available on FPS! We thought a lot about a good promo offer for this Christmas in July and there’s really nothing like a “free shipping” promotion.

Shipping and mainly shipping fees are always a big problem, especially since we mostly sell abroad. We’ve even had times when the shipping fees were higher than our items’ prices! We’re always searching for the best shipping options, but we can only do so much. Well this time around, a whole month of Free Shipping for our Christmas in July letterpress promotion is the absolute best option!

Take this opportunity to stock up on your letterpress business cards and tags, coasters and stationery! If you’re preparing for your wedding, this is the best time to be thinking of your letterpress wedding set (letterpress invitations, envelopes, RSVP cards, menus, accommodation cards etc.) as you won’t have to worry about shipping fees!

As i was saying above, our Christmas in July letterpress promotion is already active, so go ahead and throw us a challenge! We also have a bunch of ink colors to choose from (ranging from deep black, various blue shades, green, red, yellow, magenta, orange, brown, even the metallic copper-gold i was showing you last time), so you can definitely use your imagination with this one!

If you like our Christmas in July letterpress promotion, please share the news and spread the word! Thank you!
