LETTERPRESS BUSINESS CARDS | NYC
Printing letterpress business cards requires an ink-covered copper plate to stamp deep into the paper. Publicide uses ancient and powerful Heidelberg presses at our New York City print shop to letterpress everything from business cards to buck slips, presentation folders, stationery and more. We recommend using letterpress to add a tactile, dimensional feel to your design. Stamping into paper creates raised and pressed areas, transforming a company logo or name into a show-stopping piece that your prospective clients will be unable to discard.
Combine a 2 or 3 inks to really make your cards stand out—or try letterpress business cards with a gilded edge or round corner die cut. Letterpress business cards work great combined with foil stamping or raised ink also. And the letterpress is perfect if you’re looking for an extra thick business card since the thickest paper stocks can’t go through an offset printing press or digital printer. Handmade, recycled and cotton papers have the perfect texture and tooth for letterpress business card printing but we also stock many other thick papers that work great to get the best impression.
