Everyone knows business cards are a necessity if you want to network and promote yourself. Sure there are a ton of different ways you can design them, but my personal favorite is with letterpress printing.

Not familiar with it? It’s a technique of relief printing that uses a printing press. You compose an image with movable metal or wood type (or on a plate) and press the paper against it to transfer the ink and create an impression on the paper.

The paper quality that’s used in letterpress printing is generally good because printers want to ensure the paper can handle the pressure of the process. This not only looks better, but it feels sturdy in your hand.

There are a lot of creative approaches to using letterpress in your design and take advantage of its embossing. By using the pattern, texture and text effects of letterpress, your next business card is sure to make quite the impression!
