tricolor thank you

Hot off the press is this feminine, clean and simple notecard of gratitude. It's straight to the point, understated and elegantly designed by the chic tastemaker and designer Emma Dime. On the back side of the card, we printed her personal info with white ink for a clever detail.

I love these cards! I'd love to see one complete with a handwritten note.

the solo project

Here's are two variations on the same business card for a hair styling service, The Solo Project. Julio Hernandez, the man behind the concept, does amazing work (see his magic on my hair here).

The client requested a design with two variations of his card; one with a subtle geometric edging the card, and other with only type. Both are clean and minimal- just his style.

the specs:

European size business card
#220 Lettra Flourescent paper
2 color process (one with a blind deboss)

Greylin: business cards

Here are some final pictures from the latest completed job. 1000 cards complete and done!

Lessons learned:

  • Cutting is crucial
  • Measure 4 times, cut once.
  • Get more plates. It's worth it.
  • I need a better paper cutter. 
  • Double sided is harder than it looks

Specs:

  • 220 Lettra, Flourescent white paper
