3 Advertising, based in Albuquerque, designed these ingenious business cards sleeves for photographer Michael Barley that we letterpress printed not long ago.

The sleeves were letterpress printed on French Speckletone Natural 80# cover stock. After printing the sleeves were custom diecut, including a window that showcased examples of Michael’s photography from the inserted card. To keep everything all together a small sticker was letterpress printed with a tonal ink on a kraft label stock that was then custom diecut and pinhole perforated.

Perky Bros recently sent this gem of a stationery system our way. You may remember the gorgeous typographic and woodgrain wedding invitations we printed for Jeff a couple years back and we’re happy to share another one of his projects that’s fresh off the press.

This stationery system for BEDROC is a great example of how a designer can curate a combination of materials to support the overall design aesthetic of their project. The business cards are printed on Neenah Classic Crest Slate 80lb cover custom duplexed to Neenah Classic Crest Recycled Natural White 100lb cover. A subtle tonal letterpress varnish graces both sides of the card with an additional ink for the contact information. A zing of copper metallic on all 4 edges incorporates an element of elegance. Notecards are printed on Neenah Classic Crest Recycled 100 Natural White 80C, custom duplexed to make 160C, share the same ink colors and also show off that metallic edge. The letterhead, on Neenah Classic Crest Recycled Natural White 80lb text, and envelope, on Neenah Classic Crest Antique Gray 24W, round out the system using 2 inks that are common to the rest of the materials.
