About Letterpress business cards

Letterpress is an old artisanal technique that dates from the 15th century and was the main form of printed communication for more than 500 years.  Wooden or lead print letters were first set by hand and then printed, inked and pressed into the paper. Today, of course, things are going a little smoother, and we print using digital files and plastic plates, which we expose via a high-resolution film.

What makes this technique so special is that you can not only see the print, but also feel it. A mirrored relief of the design, also known as a 'cliché', is pressed into the paper and that tangible result is what makes letterpress so unique.

Letterpress cards will be printed on two sides in a Pantone color of your choice.

Design guidelines

How to prepare a letterpress-ready file?

Add a Pantone color swatch (Solid uncoated) for all your design elements. Make sure it’s one from our list. Or add a spot color swatch (100% black) And give it the same name as the color you chose from our list.

Make sure all your design elements are vector elements. Make sure your text is set to Outlines (Select all text and go to: Type > Create Outlines).

Be aware that letterpress cards can not be printed with CMYK. Only one color on the recto and one color on the verso side.

Before exporting files:

Remove all objects from the artboard that are not intended to be printed, including any extra swatches, links or extra objects. Delete the guidelines layer if you used a template.

Bleed (+ 3mm)

Extend the background of your design to fill the full “bleed area”. This way you don’t end up with white edges when your business cards are trimmed.

Safe area

Keep all the important stuff for your design (like the text, logo, graphic elements, etc.) inside this area. Don’t add your background – that still needs to run to the edges of the “bleed area”.

Trimbox

This will be the actual size of your business card.
