A while back we worked with Theo Chocolate in their collaboration with FareStart to print the box wrap labels for their mirepoix caramels. Seattle Magazine did a write-up here.
Printing the box wrap was a fun process combining 4-color offset with black letterpress, in some places overprinting. The Eames paper was wonderful to work with as usual. It prints and scores brilliantly. We had a great time working with the Theo gang, and the process was documented and made into a beautiful little film.
See the film here!

The gang over at Italic have been sending us some really great projects recently. We've also printed their business cards, which are a nice example of their work. Simple, bold and smart.
The design lends itself to our production processes wonderfully. They selected a palette of four paper colors that were distributed randomly during the printing. Black letterpress on the front of the card is juxtaposed against the duplexed gray sheet on the back, stamped with white foil. The beauty of duplexing colored sheets is that the cards essentially have a full flood of color on each side without the need for ink, and when the cards are trimmed to size they reveal a crisp pop of color on the edge.
So there you have it. Smart design, three processes and of course, fine printing.

A smart use of letterpress on a pre-converted envelope. With there cool design Hey was mindful with the position of their logo making sure it printed off the seams avoiding the cost of a post converted envelope.
Chipboard is no longer relegated to the back sheet of a note pads and being 100% recycled we use it for all sorts of projects like folders, hang tags, packaging and business cards. We really like this 2 color letterpress business card designed by Jenny Wilkson for Horseshoe Boutique that includes a super cool die-cut.

The architectural lines are letter-pressed to provide a both impression and elevation within the soft cotton stock. Production included offsetting pms 2965 on179# Cranes Crest, the architectural lines were letter-pressed in pms 2965 and followed up with a foil pass in matte silver. The flip side of the card was letterpress in pms 2965 and pms 877 with a final treatment of silver gilding.

To create a nice heavy sheet that could standup to letterpress and foiling without bruising we duplexed 120# Eames Painting Cover to 80# Classic Crest canyon brown cover. The Eddie Bauer logo was foiled with clear foil and the copy side was letter-pressed in a custom brown to match the canyon brown stock, followed up with die-cutting the bookmark was then carefully hand assembled with custom orange eyelets and leather cord.
