About to send these out in the new year 😀
Designed the whole thing myself.
Only the main card is letterpress, I just love how bright the ink is and the feel of the paper.. Ended up printing about 500 copies as generic stationery to use as menus, thank you cards, info cards etc.
I’m having a second reception in Indonesia as all my family’s there and it’s quite hard for them to get a visa to Australia… So that’s just a bit of an info card I printed digitally.
I’m REALLY happy with the way it came out even though it’s quite time consuming to put together. The 2 paper stock and ink colours don’t completely match (but tbh, I’ll be the only who’ll notice that)

@thisisbrucebanner: That is a really good idea to get 500 letterpress cards and use them in so many ways. Where did you get the cards printed?

Love them! I’m currently looking into letterpress myself. These are beautiful and just perfect!

Thank you all for the compliments 🙂
@LucyLaLa: I got mine printed here: http://wpprint.com.au/
The most expensive bit of letterpress is the set up, so using them for multi-purpose (by gluing another digitally printed card to the back) means I save up a LOT of money

I love them! The color and the font is so unique and pretty. Great job!

These look great!! Any idea what the color of the bluish-green ink is and what type of ink was used? It is similar to what I used, but your color is more like what I was shooting for. We are making our own, so I’d love to find the ink.

@thisisbrucebanner: Silly me, I didn’t realize you would have ordered from an Australian company! Sounds very economical (for letterpress!) Maybe you can inkjet print directly on the back?

@RP7: The letterpress is PMS337 and I have no idea what ink they use, but I’m guessing generic letterpress ink.
The digital print (the other page & “save the date” tag) is C40 M0 Y30 K0 and that’s just with a laser printer.
You’ll never get the bright letterpress colour on a digital print unfortunately.
@LucyLaLa: Unfortunately the paper is WAY too thick to go into a printer! But either way, it’s not that hard for me to just glue things to the back 😉
