Happy Friday, Letterpress Lovers!  Today, I wanted to share with you a really awesome set of business cards we created for Eugene’s most awesome soul band, Soul Restoration Project!  With most of their repertoire in ’60s and ’70s soul tunes, SRP “provides the foundation for grooving, shaking, dancing, and widespread pleasure through adult, yet family-friendly, music.”

Soul Restoration Project’s business cards were printed on a custom duplexed turquoise-ish blue paper stock with a laid (ie. paper that has a finely ribbed appearance) finish.  (There’s all kinds of innuendo there that I want to take advantage of, but won’t).  Their logo was printed on the front side in black ink with accents of white and shiny gold foil!

The backsides of the cards feature the logo and white accents from the front and has their Facebook page and email address info.

SRP has a sweet gig coming up tomorrow: Eugene’s 3rd Annual Winterfest Music Festival at the Eugene Veteran’s Club.  They also play at Mac’s at The Vet’s Club every other Thursday night.  You can check out Mac’s calendar for more details on that.  They also play for festivals, weddings, dance parties, and more!  Eugene: if you aren’t familiar with this band, you seriously need to check them out!  Also, they have rad business cards.  😉

Thanks, SRP!

Save the Date | Hillary & Peter are Getting Married!

HillaryHenthorn1Check out these fun, festive, letterpress save-the-date cards we created for local, Eugene couple, Hillary & Peter for their upcoming wedding at Sweet Cheeks Winery in July!  When Hillary met with me at the beginning of this year to discuss her design options, she really fell in love with our new Confetti Thank You Cards, which you can see below, and wanted to do some sort of similar motif for her save-the-dates.

IMG_6869I loved the idea of incorporating the two-color confetti pattern into more stationery, so we changed up the colors just a little bit and came up with these:

HillaryHenthorn2Hillary and Peter’s save-the-dates are a double-sided postcard featuring black letterpress ink and gold foil stamping on the front side, and their return address and space for writing their recipients’ addresses in black ink on the reverse side.  Hillary chose a fun combination of fonts that to me, look vaguely reminiscent of the elvish writing from Lord of the Rings.  These save-the-dates were printed on 100% cotton paper.  Check out how shiny the gold foil is below!

HillaryHenthorn3I just love how these turned out and can’t wait to continue working with Hillary and Peter on their main invitations!

If you’re interested in working with us on fancy letterpress printing and/or foil stamping for your upcoming wedding (or anything else), get in touch!  We’d love to work with you!
