Custom Business Cards | Lauren Stewart Design + Events

Earlier this year we got to design and print an awesome set of business cards for an event designer based in Santa Monica, California!  We actually began working with Lauren Stewart of Lauren Stewart Design + Events a few years ago, when she hired us to letterpress print wedding invitations for her own wedding.  Not too long after her own wedding, Lauren started LSD+E, a boutique design and event production company specializing in the design and production of weddings, bridal showers, birthday parties, baby showers, engagement parties, and any other special events you can dream up!  Lauren is really talented, and I’ve enjoyed working both with her and her clients over the last few years.

Lauren’s business cards, which you can see above and below, are double-sided, and were printed on extra-thick Crane Lettra 220# duplex 100% cotton paper.  They feature a lovely light orange ink and a fun mix of modern fonts and graphics.  Check out the images below for a closer look at both sides.

If you’re planning an event in Southern California soon, check out her website and contact Lauren!  She’d love to help you create a gorgeous event!

Thanks so much Lauren!  You rock!

Custom Business Cards | Threadbare

Earlier this year I was very excited to collaborate with fellow local Eugene artist and printer, Amy Vellutini, of Threadbare Print House on an awesome set of letterpress business cards.  Amy is a screen printer specializing in t-shirts, posters and vinyl transfers and wanted some really kick-ass business cards to hand out.  We incorporated her logo and a fun, modern typeface into these cards and printed them in two ink colors on Holyoke 100% cotton bone white paper.  Aren’t they cool!?!

You can check out Threadbare’s work on their website or Facebook page.  And, if you’re interested in having t-shirts made, Amy is running a LivingSocial Deal this week, so be sure to snatch that up!  Thanks so much again, Amy!  You rock!

Custom Business Cards | Color & Dust

Earlier this year, we created a gorgeous, timeless, set of custom letterpress business cards for Kelsey Strawn of Color & Dust in Tyler, Texas.  Kelsey hired us to rebrand her photography business and I just love the logo and business card design we came up with!  Above you can see the finished letterpress business cards we made.  Kelsey’s cards feature rounded corners and were printed in silver ink on ultra-thick Crane Lettra 100% cotton duplex 220 lb. paper.  We used a combination of an ultra-modern san-serif font for the logo and a fun handwritten script for the tagline and URL.  

As an extra special finishing touch, we also edge painted Kelsey’s cards in silver!  I just love how modern and timeless these are!  Perfect for a photography business!

This is actually the second set of business cards Color & Dust has had us print.  The original set was done in the same design and was printed on a custom, handmade purple paper from Porridge Papers in gold ink.  These cards were super-awesome too, but unfortunately, I fogot to take photos of them.  : (  At any rate, I just love working with Kelsey, and her photography is amazing!  If you’re in or near Tyler, Texas, you should definitely look her up!

Kelsey was kind enough to share a few of her favorite images with us!  All photos below courtesy of Color & Dust.

Aren’t her photos just lovely!?!  I love her heavy use of natural lighting and bright colors!  If I had kiddos, I would totally hire Kelsey to do family portraits or pictures of my kids.  Seriously, if you’re in Texas, go check out Color & Dust!

 

Custom Business Cards | Adair Cannada Design

Check out this awesome set of edge-painted business cards we created last fall for Adair Cannada of Adair Cannada Design in Nashville, Tennessee!  These letterpress business cards were printed with two ink colors, double-sided, on thick, 220 lb. 100% cotton Crane Lettra paper.  Each card featured a lovely light blue, and a dark slate grey ink on both sides to make up Adair’s logo and contact information!

As an extra special finishing touch, we edge painted Adair’s cards with the same light blue color as we printed on the front and back.  I just love how edge painting adds a little extra pizazz to any card design!

Thanks so much for working with us on these Adair!  You rock!

Custom Business Cards | Simply Rose Photography

I just love a gorgeous letterpress printed business card!  They just stand out from the crowd in a way that no other type of business card can.

I was very excited when we got to design and print the set of business cards you see above for Rose Dykstra of Simply Rose Photography in Vancouver, Canada last month.  Rose’s cards feature double-sided letterpress printing in two colors (an organic, grassy green and light pink) on 100% cotton, duplex Crane Lettra Pearl White Paper.  The front side features Rose’s logo in two colors and the back side features her name and contact information in green.

As an extra-special finishing touch we edge painted these cards in light pink to match the pink of her logo!

Aren’t these cards just gorgeous?!?  I love how the letterpress impression turned out on the super thick paper, and I think that the edge painting really helped to finish the design off!  Rose took some additional photos of these cards and posted them on her blog here.  If you’d like to check out some of Rose’s gorgeous photography, you can on her website.

Thanks so much for working with us on these Rose!  I love how they turned out and I’m so glad you did too!  If you ever need anything else, just let me know!  Thanks again!

Custom Business Cards | LeadPencil Designs

Check out these awesome business cards we printed last month for Eugene/Springfield, Oregon architectural designer Shawn Jenkins of LeadPencil Designs!  I love the simple, clean, modern design of these business cards.  They utilize a couple of great letterpress techniques without going overboard!  The front of the card, which you can see above has Shawn’s logo printed in two ink colors: red and grey in the center of the card.  We blind embossed a pencil image behind the text as well.  These cards are double-sided, 2.5″ square, and were printed on ultra-thick Crane Lettra Bright White 220 lb. Duplex paper to minimize the show-through from one side to the other.

The backside, which you can see below, has Shawn’s name and contact information in grey at the bottom and an area above his name to write down any notes you might want to remember after talking with him.  This is a very handy idea for a business card, in my opinion.

Aren’t they great?!?  If you’re in the Eugene/Springfield area and are looking for an architectural designer, give Shawn a call!

 

Custom Business Cards | Floataway Studios

Hi Everybody!  Wow – February has just flown by!  We’ve been up to so many cool things lately, I don’t even know where to begin.  So, let’s start with some awesome and cute business cards that we finished earlier this month for Los Angeles-based Floataway  Studios!   Floataway Studios is a creative collective specializing in weddings and lifestyle portraiture and videography.  They’re based in LA, but available worldwide.  You can check out their website from the link above or check out their blog here!

I had so much fun working with Mary to create Floataway’s new business cards, which you can see above and below.  The cards are letterpress printed on 100% cotton, super-thick duplex paper stock with grey ink on one side and turquoise ink on the other.  The first side features their logo in grey and the other features their website and email in the turquoise.  I love Floataway’s adorable logo and modern fonts, but the coolest thing about these cards is their custom shape!  Seriously, how often do you see a cloud-shaped business card floating around?  Each card was printed and then custom-die cut on our press into their cute, totally unique shape.  I love them!  

If you love Floataway’s cards, you should go and check out their photography on their website and or blog.  It’s adorable!!

Thanks so much for working with us Mary!  If you need anything else, just let me know!

Custom Business Cards | Oregon Social Media

Twin Ravens Press is very excited to be working with Don Jeter and his fiance, Stephanie, at Oregon Social Media.  Oregon Social Media is a new company based here in Eugene that specializes in helping businesses and non-profit organizations understand and use social media.  Whether it’s helping your business network with consumers and other businesses and organizations through social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and Google+, or helping you start or manage a blog, or put on a guerrilla marketing campaign, Oregon Social Media is your source to turn to.

We were excited to work with Don and Stephanie on letterpress printing their business cards this past December.  Don’s cards are printed on a heavy, 100% cotton, duplex weight stock in three ink colors.  The logo side of the card was printed in two different greens with the word “Oregon” being a knock-out to the white of the paper.  This made the “Oregon” stand up a little bit while the words “Social Media” and outline of the state were pressed into the paper.  It was a very fun logo to letterpress print!  The back side of their card features their website and contact information.  I love the clean, modern look of this design!

Shortly after printing their business cards, we were also hired to print a really sweet set of coasters for their office!  These were printed in light green on our 3.5″ square, recycled pulp-board coaster stock.  Aren’t they cool?!?

If you’re an Oregon small business or non-profit looking to launch your marketing into the 21st century, contact Oregon Social Media!   You can also check out their website and blog.  They wrote a really nice article about us there too!

Thanks so much Don & Stephanie!  I’m looking forward to working with you again soon!

 

Custom Business Cards | Calligraphy Katrina & Maison du Papier

Since I started Twin Ravens Press in 2007, I’ve had the pleasure of working with several awesome calligraphers from around the country!  One of my favorites, however, is Katrina Centeno of Calligraphy Katrina & Maison du Papier.  Katrina’s work is absolutely beautiful and I’m more than happy to recommend her to any of our couples who are looking for wedding calligraphy.  I was also super-excited this past fall when she asked me to letterpress print her business cards.  

The cards you see above are a standard business card size and were printed on 100% cotton rag Holyoke paper in Antique White.  We used a stunning burgundy ink, which I think looks fabulous with Katrina’s calligraphy.  Both her logo and name were done in calligraphy and we used a classic roman font for her contact information.  If you’re in need of an awesome calligrapher, contact Katrina!
