10 Beautiful Letterpress Business Cards

Like many other creative types out there, I am fascinated with great looking business cards. That is why we recently launched a new site called Card Observer. In the two weeks of being live, Card Observer has received tons of great submissions, of which many have been letterpress printed cards. If you are not familiar with letterpress, it is the process of inking a raised surface and then pressing it into the stock.

Here are 10 of the best ones we’ve seen so far at Card Observer.

    I love the embossed feel of those. It really adds depth to the card – literally :). Does that cost extra? I’m sure a lot of communication has to happen between the designer & the printer to get something like that.

    This reminds me of American Psycho, you know the movie in which Bates has bus card envy and goes berserk over the dude who has a “prettier” card than his. LoL.

    P.S. Am really digin the blue bird design.

    Very nice collection. I love letterpress work…the richness of texture and the interesting affects are always great to see. The letterpress process really adds an essence of 3D character to a 2D product. Thank you for the wonderful post!
