So I’m going to try something that requires a little discipline here… If you follow us on the Twitter and Facebook, you’ve probably seen ‘What’s on Press…’ which is basically a snapshot of whatever we have on press that day. We’re pretty good about keeping up with it and people seem to like it. Well, we print a lot more than we get to share – so each week I’m going to try and collect everything in bulk and put it out there. I really feel lucky to work with all of the wonderful designers who we print for, and hope that sharing the work that goes through our presses will help inspire you to see the possibilities that still exist with traditional print mediums. I’ll be trying to make it a Friday thing – forgive me for jumping the gun a bit early this week! Enjoy this weekly update – and if you want daily’s make sure to follow our FB & Twitter. Both links can be found in the right column of this here blog.
I’m hoping you’ve seen the ‘you’re business card is crap’ video…
If not – search it in youtube. I fear posting it here would just make us
look like we’re terribly behind the times… Well, we’re not, I swear.
Moving on… The cure for crap business cards? Well, I don’t think you necessary
need to die-cut, emboss, foil, score, and do everything else to them like the
aforementioned video prescribes… Heck, I’ll even go as far to say that you don’t
even need to letterpress them. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to letterpress your cards.
But, it doesn’t always prove the best option for the design.
Case in point. Check this Maven designed card that we screen printed and had laser-cut…
A screen printed card can accomplish the near impossible (white print on black card stock) while providing a more cost effective way to make something truly unique.
