This is one of the most ambitious projects we’ve ever taken on. In 2020, Pasxa Wines in Walla Wall asked us to produce labels for their first vintage for about 5000 bottles. Since then we’ve worked with them each year as their production has more than doubled and this past December we finished work on labels for their fourth vintage. Each label goes has a total of seven (!!!) letterpress inks. We use soft and supple 100% cotton Somerset paper, a stock that’s designed and manufactured for fine art prints. After printing, we hand-apply an adhesive backing then die cut the press sheets. At the ..read more

The first of two business cards we printed for clients of the incomparable designer Chad Makerson Micheal.

Embossed and duplexed business cards for Portland’s Wildwood House! If you’re printing a two-sided business card and you don’t want to see the reverse of your embossed image on the back of the piece, we can duplex two sheets after embossing to hide the embossing. For this set, we embossed 350g Colorplan Pistachio, printed black letterpress on 300g Lettra Fluorescent White, glued the two together, and then die-cut to finish the card. It’s also a good idea to die-cut an embossed & duplexed card rather than trim it on a standard guillotine cutter. That way the emboss doesn’t get mashed by th ..read more

Letterpress Cards for Ashley Grant Interiors

Designed by Kristin Allen for Ashley Grant Interiors, these thick two-sided cards are printed on separate 300g sheets, then duplexed after printing so that the impressions on the front and back don’t affect each other. Printing front and back on a 600g sheet is always an option too, but if you want 100% crisp and clean impressions, a duplexed card is the way to go.
