Business card – Lush Designs

Chantal illustrated this little business card for Woodbridge florist Lush Designs. This card is smaller than standard business cards since the client has her own particular card holder. The only other criteria was to feature a peony on the card.

Printed on Crane Lettra, 600 gsm, pearl white. 2×2.5.



Our save-the-date

Our clients are putting us to shame! Here we are just having sent out our save-the-dates for our August 2010 wedding (this summer!!!) when we should have our invitations already printed.

Do as we say, not as we do 😉

Joel illustrated the save-the-date to match his proposal book so the theme was red coral (like Chantal’s ring), diving bells and turtles. And since we are great believers in killing two birds with one stone, he also used the graphic as a promo for his illustration.

Three colours printed by Chantal on Crane Lettra, 140 lbs pearl white. 5×7.

The turtle shell even took on a concave shape while printing!
Chantal's red coral ring, around which the save the date was based.

Papillon Press’ first ever letterpress workshop

Good news for northern design enthusiasts!


Papillon Press is offering an exciting opportunity for three participants to learn the age-old craft of letterpress printing.

You will also learn what real “em” and “en” quads are, learn the basic California job case and what all those strange typography terms really mean!
