Printer: Faulkenberg Printing
You don’t need ink to leave an impression. Literally! Why not make them stand out by designing a card that used no ink at all? As a design house we wanted our business cards to stand out. Through a constant dialogue with Faulkenberg Printing and their knowledge of the letterpress process, we developed a graphic (Luur logo + pattern) copper die that was pressed into 100% cotton material, revealing a depressed look that was legible without ink. Each of the ‘blank’ cards were then hand stamped on the back by us using an old style rubber stamp with ink. Each and every card is unique and exhibits the imperfect, yet perfect hands-on process. The stamping process gives us the freedom to put whatever information we want on the back of the letter pressed cards. In addition to functioning as a business card when stamped with our contact info, the blank cards can be stamped with product info/prices and used as tags for furniture and product line or even stamped with special discounts for services/products. These one of a kind customizable cards are a kept memento that stand out and reminds clients of our attention to detail, beauty, and design. Track us down anytime at the office, grocery store, or wherever to get your hands on one of our cards.
