And On The Eighth Day

How many times have we wished for an eighth day! If we were to visualise an eighth day, we reckon it'd look something like this beautiful business card from Eighth Day Design of Brighton and Edinburgh.
The design agency want their card to feel as good as it looks and this is ably achieved with a delicious Colorplan duplex board of Bagdad Brown 270gsm to Mist 270gsm, supplied by Messrs. GF Smith.Letterpress print to the front and foil to the reverse in rich glossy brown results in an elegant business card that is quite simply, timeless.

Letterpress Impressive

It's a great pleasure to produce interesting, creative, energetic, innovative design - and so, for your delectation and delight, we showcase a collection of music-themed quiz cards, encased in a nostalgic cassette cover.
In this collaboration with designer, Kerr Vernon, we employ various print methods, including letterpress print, foilblocking, diecutting and a wee bit of nifty hand finishing.
Inside the case you can engage with letterpress print hands-on and test your musical knowledge with the cryptic visuals on the enclosed six cards.
Stock is GF Smith Colorplan which gives a fine impression and is available in a wide range of colours and embossings.
WARNING: the pic below reveals some of the answers - so if you don't want to know, look away now, send for your own pack and play the letterpress game.
