New Biz Cards

We have new business cards! As many letterpress printers know, there is a lot of waste at the beginning of a job when you are setting up your plate, getting the right ink color or amount of ink, depth of impression, etc. Then there is aligning the registration of a two-color job which means more setting up of your plate, ink and impression all over again. Well, we finally figured out what to do with all the miss-prints or cards that just don’t quite make the cut – they are now our business cards! We cut down the cards to 3 x 3 inch squares and printed our information on the back. Then we cut rounded corners on them to give them a more finished look. We love to recycle, but it feels even better to re-use! It’s also pretty cool to see a little piece of our work on the back of each card. And just like Forrest said, “you never know what you’re gonna get.”
