"Ooh, letterpress! That's first class!"
That was the reaction recently from a client when I handed him my "calling card" (an appropriate name when you actually have it printed on a vintage letterpress press!).
Everyone wants their card to make a statement (aside from your stunning design and important personal info). I also wanted it to reflect the care and thought I put into my own work.
Hence, letterpress — a craft that is making a resurgence in the creative world.
So, thank you to Hoban Press in Centralia, Wash., and printer Evan Calkins for these wonderful cards.
You have to hold and feel them to appreciate the craftsmanship!
