Our new Letterpress Business Cards

By John Connole
3 May

We recently decided to get some new business cards and after weighing up the options we couldn’t resist getting them done via Letterpress. Although Letterpress is in no way a budget option, the whole experience of designing Letterpressed cards and getting them done was¬†ridiculously¬†fun.

3 images together, the first one stickybeak business cards on a tabletop, then a letterpress machine, then the plates used to make the business cards

On the right – the plates used for the orange colour.
In the middle – The Letterpress with the orange colour applied.
On the Left – The end result.

We worked with Neisha and Mish from Creative Emporium here in Brisbane. They helped us with the stock and colour and even invited us in to watch the process. We highly recommend using them if you’re considering anything Letterpress.

John left QUT with a Master of Creative Industries (Interactive & Visual Design) and a firm view that design should be simple, clean and timeless. Back in 2009, John started Stickybeak with the single-minded purpose of offering a highly-specialised, highly-personal service to customers. Believing you should only accept work from clients you can genuinely help, John's ethics are at the very heart of the way Stickybeak does business. When he's not helping clients get the very best from their company, he likes nothing more than sitting around a campfire, unleashing his inner photographer or attempting to Kitesurf
