Letterpress Business Cards

This week, I printed my first order for letterpress business cards! Even though they are for my mom. (We have to build portfolio's somehow!) I started with the amazing cranes #220 cotton stock and blind pressed the background pattern. I then followed that up with glossy black ink that created a nice contrast with the smooth cotton paper. I was so excited when the back and front lined up I almost shouted out loud in the studio. For those of you who don't letterpress, I had to switch plates and line it up perfectly to do the back design. These cards used three plates to create the overall product. Thanks to Stacy from Steracle press who was my letterpress teacher!
