John Myers from 1st Door Software approached me in February about redesigning his website and creating a new logo for his business. John develops very high quality applications for iOS so he needs to represent that quality with his first impression, be it the website or a business card. Today, a website has depth and an unlimited canvas to tell a story, but a business card as a medium truly limits designers in many ways. A high quality business card goes a long way when creating an initial impression. Business card production can be done through internet vendors in a very inexpensive way but for 1st Door Software it was important that we created a unique and high quality card that represented their brand and in this case letterpress printing was the best process for the job.

Denver based print shop, Foils & Dies have been letterpress printing for over 20 years and after seeing just a few of the business cards they had printed in the past I knew they were the perfect company for the job. The letterpress typically uses magnesium or copper dies that a inked and smashed on top the paper to create a mild indentation that is a reverse of the die. Letterpress as trade is slowly fading away so I was very excited to have the opportunity to use the process, here are a few shots of the print shop and the final results.
