    Greeting & business cards printed using traditional typeset and letterpress machines. 100% computer-free.
    Published:
Created greeting and business cards using traditional letterpress and typesetting techniques.
 
For some reason, I got a lot of satisfaction from printing something without the use of electricity or computers.
Arranging the blocks of type and creating a mould.
The cards were designed to have two faces: Silver ink on black 250 gsm metallic board and black ink on silver foil. Each of the 100 cards were hand glued.

'Pasko' means 'Christmas' in tagalog, which is my mother tongue.
