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.

Still and motion photographer Patrick Kehoe recently contacted Evolution Press for some fine letterpress business cards and after meeting with Patrick and learning that he was also a storyteller who produces short narrative documentaries, so we ended up filming his cards running on press.
Apart from being a pleasure to work with, Patrick has a true sense for his craft impressing us with his keen eye and editing style-- and hey now he has some sweet cards to boot!.

Using 200lb thick black vellum stock, the red was foiled first as a solid circle. On the next pass, the black image was foiled exactly on top to build the logo image. Precision press work is required when layering colors like this, and when done well, the end result is seamlessly striking.
