Deep Red Letterpress Business Card
100% pure cotton paper
John Henry Donovan called on us to print his business cards. We discussed which papers would be most suitable as he wanted a really deep impression. After seeing John’s artwork we recommended Saunders 425gsm. A beautiful soft white pure cotton paper heavier than the average business card but not too thick to take up too much room in his wallet!

Getting the right amount of ink was critical for this design. We had to have enough coverage for the block at the top of the card without over inking the finer typography at the bottom.

The cards were letterpress printed on our vintage Heidelberg printing presses.
