Letterpress business cards are the height of luxury!

There is something special and luxurious about letterpress business cards.

The deep impression that letterpress creates on the thick cotton paper gives it a distinct look and feel no other printing method can match.

When you deboss your logo or design in deep relief, it's almost like you can feel the print beneath your fingers.

Lettered business cards are a statement of class and sophistication that other forms of printed stationery cannot compare to.

Whether it's the tactile sensation or unique style, having a letterpress card will leave a deep impression (pun intended) on whoever you give it to.

What are letterpress business cards?

Letterpress business cards use one of the oldest printing methods, letterpress. Letterpress impresses the paper and adds fine details to any design, unlike digital and offset printing. It makes elegant stationery, wedding invitations, greeting cards, and other paper products.

Digital and litho printing transfer ink from rollers to a flat surface in one step. Letterpress makes several impressions on lightly pressed cardstock using plates. This elevated effect offers a captivating 3D effect. It also highlights texture, like ink "kisses" made with slight pressure.

Its unpredictability makes it appealing. Each print is unique since ink levels change during each run. A hand-made texture is produced. Exceptional! Letterpress printing is also more durable. Even if they fall off a desk, letterpress business cards will last longer.

How to make letterpress business cards

Letterpress business card tips:

Select the suitable material. Choose strong, sturdy paper for your business cards to withstand several printing presses. Heavyweight papers like cotton or bamboo work well. Smooth papers are great for detailed artwork and typography.

2. Design. Most letterpress works require two plates: one to print the design onto the paper, and another to "trap" (a lot) additional ink onto transfer sheets so it doesn't stick to locations on the page where there shouldn't be any ink. Keep your design simple because this extra trapping will take longer to build.

3. Prepare plates. There are several techniques to prepare metal plates for letterpress printing, depending on the printer. Etch metal directly onto zinc plates or polymer-coat thin boards composed of wood, MDF, or polyester resin (also known as offset litho printing). Metal plates are better since they allow you to adjust production runs and save them for later use.

What cardstock is used for letterpress business cards?

Cotton, bamboo, and recycled paper are the most common papers for letterpress business cards. Cotton is costly. Smooth and somewhat textured. Its sumptuous feel and durability allow letterpress printing with great detail. Bamboo paper is thicker than cardstock, making it ideal for letterpress printing with beautiful raised impressions. It's printed differently and eco-friendly. Finally, utilize recyclable paper for business cards. Translucent vellum and kraft papers add intrigue to your cards.

Make sure your material is thick enough so it doesn't warp when printed. Your design won't look crisp and professional when printed on thin cardstock materials.
