English/Portuguese Letterpress Invitations

Wedding invitation designs that feature beautiful typography (in any language!) are just made for letterpress.  Fernanda contacted us last year and asked if it were possible for us to print one invite in English and one in Portuguese for her upcoming wedding. Of course we are more than happy to print invitations in any language!

Fernanda & Steve Invitations

Her fiance Steve sent us a layout with a monogram that we modified slightly to be more letterpress friendly and got busy printing right away. The ink colour we used is a slightly shimmery Pantone Black 6U that looked perfect on Crane’s Lettra pearl white.  To add a bit more oomph to the piece we bumped up the stock to double-thick 220lb!

Pink Donut Business Cards

Hey everyone, I know it’s been forever since we’ve blogged last and yes we are still alive!  🙂  There has been a lot of printing and designing keeping us busy so we’ll have a few posts coming up in the next couple of weeks showcasing the great work we’ve had the privilege of doing over the last couple of months.  Today, a project that was a real treat to print (mmm donuts) are these awesome business cards for Toronto based company Pink Donut Visuals.  Pink Donut Business Card

Some logos are just perfection when letterpress printed and this one certainly is!  We used Pantones 2375 & 2756 on Crane’s Lettra 220lb cotton stock and then to make the cards even better, edge-painted them in matching blue. Pink Donut Card1 Pink Donut Card2

Check out Pink Donut’s Facebook page for all kinds of info on their video production services http://www.facebook.com/pinkdonutvisuals and their Vimeo page for examples of their work http://vimeo.com/pinkdonutvisuals (they do weddings!!)

WDP also has a new website in the works (forgive the lack of pages to browse) but if you want information on our letterpress services there is a contact form on our homepage http://www.wedoprinting.net


Five Colour Letterpress Train Cover

This fun print is a railway timetable cover we printed for a member of a local model train group.  The design is based on an original timetable from a village in England.  Printed in 5 colours (red, blue, black, cool gray and gold) on Crane’s Lettra 110lb in bright white.  Registration was crazy difficult for this job and the large solids meant lots of skip feeding on the Heidelberg!

If you have a project that you think is too crazy for letterpress-give us a shout for a quote you might be surprised!
