Design is the key
It is definitely not easy to create an original and attractive design and creating a good design for such small things as business cards can be a real challenge.
For good letterpress business cards design, we always recommend using fewer elements if possible, only a few colors and not overload business card with contact/text information. Leave more space for subtle paper texture and an awesome printing method will do its extra elegance.
If you don’t have possibility to design your business cards or you require a consultation about your artwork, simply contact our professional team and we will make sure that your letterpress business cards will look like nothing else.
Embellishments that make your custom letterpress business cards look exceptional
Printing with deboss is called ‘letterpress‘, it means that we press objects into the paper and it looks really impressive. It is a medium-expensive printing technique, the price range is between flat, digital printing and foiling. With deboss, we can print only spot colors. Thick cotton stock fits perfectly for letterpress printing.
Now glossy foil is very popular and some elements will add an extra shine to your business card. Foiling is one of the most expensive printing methods. Mostly we recommend to foil on dark color paper, then glossy elements create a nice contrast with dark background.
If we need to print without relief we use silkscreen or digital printing methods. Digital printing has one major advantage if compared with traditional printing processes – digitally possible to print almost any image on a business card: mid tones, colorful flowers or your photo.
Business card with painted edges will look more exceptional. Edges can be painted with all Pantone Uncoated colors. To be edging visible we recommend to choose at least 430 gsm stock for your business cards, of course, thicker cardstock is even better.
Glossy gold, silver or copper gilded edges will look not only exclusively but will add to your card a delicate luxury touch. To make sure the foiled edge is really noticeable, we recommend using thicker an darker stock.
Differently shaped business cards will also stand out from the crowd. Typically, we cut business cards with equipment that can do rectangular shape. But we can use special dies (or sometimes even laser cut), and cut almost any shape you want.
By saying “Duplex” we mean gluing of 2 or more paper sheets. If you need really thick or different backgrounds on opposite sides of your business cards, we will print your business cards on separate sheets of paper and then glue them together. Sometimes we glue even 3 or more layers to get elegant colored cut.
