For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have got a sneak peek of my new business cards yesterday. In all of my 7 years of working as a graphic designer, I was never able to convince my clients to go with letterpress. It's an ancient printing technique but I think they are so classic and I LOVE the feel of debossed fonts on a thick piece of card stock. Ahhh...a graphic designers dream I tell ya. What can I say, I have a thing for fonts and pretty paper! So with Blogpodium coming up as well as tea with Sarah, I decided to treat myself!
I'm a fan of minimal design but still wanted my card to stand out so I went with gold foil text and painted edges in gleaming pink. I love how they add colour to my desk and they look so pretty tucked in my wallet. I was originally going to go with black painted edges and I'm so glad I went the pink route. They're so much more cheerful!
The lovely people at Cotton Paperie did a fantastic job in such a short timeframe. I literally could not sleep last week because I was afraid the cards wouldn't ship on time or they would get held up at customs. Also, I'm pretty sure their entire staff knows me now since I called like, every day. I'm NOT even exaggerating. Well, they pulled it off and I couldn't be happier! The quality is fantastic and I highly recommend them. If you want to see more of their work, you can check out their website here. Check out the labels on their boxes too, so darn pretty:
So what do you think, folks? Would you do letterpress? And who's going to #Blogpodium? or tea with #SarahRichardson? Are you ready?!
Have a great day everyone. xo
