I printed this set of business cards, product tags, and notecards from Dani’s own design. She laid out the designs on Illustrator and sent me the files. Then I got some plates made, inked up the press….. and voilà! Maybe there were a few more steps in there 😉
I like printing from old-school metal type when I can, but this new polymer plate technology lets you use any font you want, whether or not you have a drawer of it in your printshop. Pretty cool. The paper Dani chose for these cards is extra thick and luscious, too. The simple, minimal design lets the paper do its thing.
Paper: Lettra Fluorescent White, 600gsm
Ink: Black, black, black
Print technique: Letterpress from photopolymer plates
