Printed business cards – Panda Rose

We like to challenge ourselves here, so we took on this job to print business cards for Panda Rose, a consulting firm. This design was FOUR colours, double-sided. We printed a flood of blue with white knocked-out text, silver ink over the blue and black for the panda head. On the flip side, the panda logos are printed in transparent white.

Printed on heavyweight 600 gsm Crane Lettra, in fluorescent white. We always print on the 600 gsm stock for double-sided jobs.

*Side note: We receive lots of requests for jobs with a flood of colour and white knocked-out text. Letterpress is not well suited for printing solid blocks of colour, so we typically only print these jobs if the size is small enough that our platen press can suitably cover the whole surface of the paper evenly, and if the client understands that the paper will “show through” the colour. As you can see with the Panda Rose card, the blue flood has a graininess to it that is very different from other forms of printing and unique to letterpress.
