Quiet Studio

 We recently had the pleasure of working with Quiet Studio in producing their very elegant business cards. Thank you to designer Richard Parkin who writes the following:

Quiet Studio is a creative design consultancy who specialise in brand development and print design.
We're extremely pleased with our new business cards from the good people at Glasgow Press. The cards are letterpress printed on GF Smith Colorplan duplex - two sheets of 270gsm pressed together to make a solid 540gsm. On the 'Ebony' side, our logo is applied in a glossy black foil and the 'Pristine White' reverse has contact info printed in a silver foil.

The cards manage to achieve just what we were looking for. Initially they appear quiet, subtle, elegant and unobtrusive, the black and silver foils barely noticeable against the card background. However, as light catches them they stand out and create a strong impact. The method of letterpress printing also creates an embossed impression which gives the cards a nice tactile feel.

We can't thank Glasgow Press enough for doing such a fantastic job. They've been incredibly friendly and helpful throughout the whole process and they pay special attention to detail and finished quality. In particular, we've been most impressed by how consistently crisp and sharp the silver foil has been applied to extremely small, light type. Great work!
