Our Twitter contest winner - Molly

Our Twitter contest winner came to us with a definite design in mind for her business cards. Molly loved the envelope from our Claire suite and wanted a fun color palette to fit the look of her blog- Pushing Papers (great read by the way). We were lucky to have a winner so interested in paper and letterpress! It was great working with you Molly! Check out what Molly had to say about her experience with us. You will find these cards with Molly at the National Stationery Show this year! Go take a look!

Please let us know if you have a vision for your stationery, we would be happy to help that vision go to press! Photo credits go to Molly herself! Thanks for the fantastic pictures!

mnfx business cards

If you don't know about Rotor, you'll have to check out their web site. They are a wonderfully creative bunch and we were honored to print this business card for their client, mnfx. And mnfx is pretty awesome in their own right. Some of the projects they've done you will definitely recognize, and it makes you think really hard about how they did it.

mnfx Business Cards
Design: Rotor
Paper: 220# and 110# Crane Lettra in Fluorescent White
Ink: Custom Red
Quantity: 750+
Size: 3.5" x 1.75" approx.
Notes: I think we would print on 220# Lettra every day of the week if we could convince all of our clients to use it at least once. This design called for heavy coverage on the back of the cards and then just a deep impression of their logo on the front of the cards. After printing, they were die cut with a custom die. A label printed at Rotor customized for each mnfx staff member was the finishing touch.

Beary Good Stationery

Sorry...I couldn't resist. It seems like I have to either come up with a really creative post title or something totally cheeseball. You be the judge of which category this one falls into.

Last year we had the pleasure of working with Brian Danaher who brought us this awesome (do people still use this word?) artwork he created for his client Clutter Bear Records. The design was such a great fit for letterpress printing and the colors he chose worked perfectly with the paper.

Clutter Bear Record Identity: Business Card, Letterhead and Mailing Label
Design: Brian Danaher
Paper: Crane Lettra in Fluorescent White, 110# Cover for the Business Card; Neenah Neutech in Pure White, 80# Text for the Letterhead; Uncoated Digital Label Stock for the Mailing Label.
Ink: Light Aqua and Chocolate Brown
Size: 3.5 x 1.75 for the business card, letter-size letterhead
Notes: We let the brown overprint the light aqua color for added visual interest. Sometimes it makes sense to avoid this but I think it added to the design in this case. The tight trimming on both the business cards and letterhead were quite the challenge, but in the end we got it just right and there's nothing better than a good trim on a project.
