Just got blogged by our client, Gavin Wade. We made these fabulous super thick black cards for him, using a pewter foil and white foil. You can’t use ink on the black paper very successfully because that dark paper will bleed through. When you use foil, it’s completely opaque and you can get these amazing effects. It’s excitng reading Gavin’s blog notes:


WOW! We just received our B-E-A-utiful new business cards! If you haven’t checked out our new logo, these cards were designed to accompany the new look of Gavin Wade Photographers!

We’ve rebranded after less than a year and can’t wait for this logo and our new card to be the carrier-pigeon for our business into the foreseeable future! You’ll have to see it for yourself, but man alive are we proud to hand these guys out to our brides! Even our banker that we met with over the weekend emailed us, saying that he’s had it on his keyboard for the past two days and people have been asking about it left and right!

We have to give a huge thank you to Zida over at Studio Z Mendocino for these gorgeous letterpressed cards! It was a total custom job, and Zida was so fantastic at working with us every step of the way. Even the boxes she delivered them to us in were amazing! I’d highly recommend her to anyone who wants to have their cards stand out amongst all others 🙂

Also, we need to give some love to Ross and everyone over at Flosites for their creative design of our logo and business card layout! They make sure you’re completely satisfied with your design, and that meant the world to us!

It was so much fun to work with Gavin, especially becaue he got engaged right in the middle of our work together and I got to read all about his wild plan for popping the question. So happy. I have the best job in the whole world because I get to work with these glorious human beings. Thank you, Gavin. I know these cards have a certain letterpress power. Ask your banker!

I wanted to mention too that, yes, we do lots of business cards, but don’t forget our fabulous wedding invitations, our incredible ad campaigns, our rack cards and stationery, our everything printed media. It’s kind of one stop shopping.
