We’ve recently completed a couple coaster / business card combinations, which work out very nicely as a simple branding package. Coasters make lovely, unique gifts and certainly get noticed.
This small package was printed for a new business of a long time family friend. We chose to contrast the Pearl White Crane Lettra stock on the business card with a hefty chipboard for the coasters. The dark brown ink on both pieces pulled it all together.
Graphic designer, Olivia Notter, had us letterpress print these fantastic double sided business cards. The color combination and unique design made these one of our favorites. Thin lines and patterns generally look very nice with the letterpress printing process.
I’ve hesitated to do this for quite some time, but in an effort to show a more personal side of Hoban Press, I’ve decided to create a Facebook page for posting shop pictures, history behind our vintage letterpresses, as well as some the nitty gritty details of the printing process.
If you’re into that sort of thing, like us on Facebook to follow our updates.
Today Hoban Cards will start selling card holders as an option with an order of calling cards for $10. These holders are made out of thick chipboard and open up wide, which is perfect for handling letterpress printed business cards on cotton stock - it prevents the cards from getting dinged and scuffed. The cases also feature a handsome inkless impression of the Hoban Press logo on the front.
If you already have a set of cards, and just need a holder, buy one here!
Say hello to Kaori Drome. She is a wonderful designer with a keen eye for pulling off effectively simple works of art. I worked with Kaori on her own custom business cards and liked her design so much I asked if she’d take part as Hoban Cards’ first guest designer.
Kaori has produced the three below charming new calling card templates to add to the other 12 templates on the Hoban Cards website.
