Check out the awesome new business cards we letterpress printed earlier this fall for California wedding and event planner, Amanda Auer, and her staff, at In the Now Weddings & Events! Twin Ravens Press had worked with Amanda before on a set of awesome promotional cards which you can see here, so I was pretty excited when she came back to us in search of new business cards for her company. These cards are small – only 2″ square – and utilized a couple of different printing techniques to achieve the best result. Generally speaking, printing large floods of color, like the black that you see on the back of the In The Now Weddings cards, isn’t very feasible with letterpress. You can print large areas of color, but you won’t get much impression, and the color that you’re printing will often turn out really splotchy. Amanda wanted a very clean looking, very black back for her cards with the thin white logo for her company showing through. In order to achieve this we had the back sides offset printed on to Crane Lettra 110 lb. cotton paper and then the reverse side with the contact information was printed on the letterpress. This allowed for some lovely texture on the backside, without sacrificing the quality and uniformity of the front.
I really love working with Amanda and I can tell you that it’s totally obvious that she and her staff just love what they do.

Thanks so much again Amanda! You rock!
