Sometimes we get asked to print really unique items that we never would have thought of ourselves. We worked with Jo Malone to print these wooden markers for an herb garden set, and they turned out really lovely! They potted Lemon Thyme, Parsley and Lavender and we printed the names in black ink with a logo on the reverse side. It can be a fun challenge to print on a new material, and it's especially rewarding when the project turns out well like this one.
Around this time of year, we are always busy printing custom holiday cards for our clients. We really enjoy getting into the spirit of the holidays, even though we still haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving! Last year we printed a really cute photo card which was designed to look like wood grain. Also known as faux bois, this technique was perfect for letterpress. We love how this card came out and think it perfectly captures the wintery theme.
And here's a close up of the detail of the faux bois:
We have put together a lovely range of customizable holiday cards. They are designed so that clients can choose their own photograph to incorporate into the card. All of us here in the studio adore this gorgeous faux bois design. Perfect for Christmas and especially perfect for letterpress: the impression makes the paper actually feel like woodgrain!
