SupaFly.Designs Letterpress Business Cards

    The incredibly wonderful Suann of Simplesong Design took my letterpress job. We had a few hurdles along the way and it was a learning process for both of us. I'm extremely thankful to her for being so patient with me and my job. She's such a sweetheart and infinitely talented.

      nice script typeface which one is it?

      Thanks!

      The script is the prominently-overused Bickham Script Pro with glyphs.

      You can't shake a stick without seeing it used in stationery and wedding invitations, but it's so lovely and incredibly easy to work with.

      I love Suann and I love these cards! Stop being so amazing because you're making me jealous! :-)

      Supa-sweeeeeet! Love the cards, especially the rounded corners and the border. The long shape is cool too. OK...so everything about these pretty much rocks. You are also making me realize I need to start using high pass filter way more often. Nice job!

      Thanks Erin! I worry that I don't tone down the high pass filter enough, but I really like the effect it gives... I also like to desaturate the color a bit after applying the filter -- I think the image looks a little edgier... ;)

      These are outstanding! I just adore the hanging stars!

      I bet they are even better in person!

      Thanks for adding my logo, Sean Azul as a favorite. Your work is phenomenal and this business card is too. How does letterpress work? Where can I get something like that?

      I do really love that logo! Letterpress printing is "the process of printing from an inked raised surface especially when the paper is impressed directly upon the surface."
