Business Cards.

May 26, 2010

Just finished up my last day of letterpress class at Irvine Fine Arts Center on Monday. I’ll share more about it in detail later, but for today, I just want to share the business cards I finished up in class.

I’m really happy with the way they turned out — simple & clean, with a handmade feel. We got to print them on all types & colors of paper, but I loved the chipboard the best. Super thick cardboard-like paper that is also soft, which makes for a really great impression.

I’m excited to stuff these in with my future etsy orders. :] And maybe hand them out at future craft fairs?? (I might be getting a little ahead of myself…)

What do you think about the cards?

    They look fantastic! I’m so jealous. I’ve been on the hunt for some letterpressed cards for a while. You’re so lucky you got to take a class and make your own.

    Great visual – the ampersand graphic is a nice contrast to the calligraphy! Now go and letterpress your heart away…
