Today I am announcing some lovely gift certificates for use on hobancards.com.
This will allow the giver to present a beautiful letterpress printed gift card, printed on the same stock and with the same quality that will be present on the final set of calling cards. A matching envelope will also included.
This is a unique & personal gift that will go well for any occasion. If you’re interested in a gift card, please contact me!
I had a pleasant time working with Garrett from Sifter on these. Their handsome logo worked perfectly for these simple double sided letterpress printed cards on 220lb Crane Lettra. They also wrote a nice journal entry about them.
Be sure to check out the Sifter App - It’s a slick web based bug & issue tracking tool for small teams.
I had the opportunity to design a logo for my brother-in-law’s new iPhone / iPad / Smartphone repair shop and thought I’d print him up some cards as well. These are black, one color cards on 140lb Holyoke. They were also printed on my 1957 Heidelberg Windmill, which I’m beginning to use more and more.
They say, the carpenter’s house is never finished. Similarly, the letterpress printer never has any business cards. I’ve recently been embarrassed after explaining to friends an family how I make business cards for folks all over the world and I’m not able to provide them a card of my own!
To remedy this, I’ve designed and printed a simple, one color card. I think it turned out well and exemplifies the simplicity and elegance that I’m trying to promote with my letterpress printed business and calling cards.
I’m super excited to announce the launch of a brand new Hoban Cards website!
In addition to a complete redesign and introduction to the new logo, the new site offers a few new calling card templates - including, two new monogram cards with blind impressions, as well as a simple Twitter card.
Also, free samples can now be ordered easily through the Samples page.
Lastly, I’ve launched a new newsletter dedicated to news and promotions surrounding Hoban Cards. Each month I’ll be offering special deals for newsletter subscribers. If you’re interested, subscribe here.
Take a look around and let me know what you think!
This is a handsome card I designed and printed for Ryan Karpowicz. He came to me wanting a simple card and loved the blind impression. I’ve printed many minimal cards, but I think this layout, as of now, remains my favorite.
A few weeks ago I finished some cards for WeSprout. They provided this wonderful design. I particularly loved the use of the blind impression in their logo and the social icons to organize their contact information.
If you are a parent (or soon to be parent) of young children, make sure to checkout http://wesprout.org. It sounds like they are doing some really innovative and exciting things in that space.
