Letterpress business cards: pillarbox red


Since they’ve arrived safely at their new home in London, I can finally show you photos of these business cards without spoiling any surprises. Of course Julian had already seen the design because he approved it, but there’s still something wonderful and surprising about holding letterpress cards in your hands for the first time.

For this job I used magnesium plates on 100% cotton paper (140#) and I hand-mixed several colours to get this fantastic pillarbox red ink.
