Solid style


Serious letterpress for solid stylers! Sharp, slick solids with thick, consistent and even ink coverage make a heavy impact on the front alongside some very fine linework. We’re so confident in our letterpress techniques in avoiding show-through, we’re even showing you the back of the card! Letterpress printed exclusively for Australian branding and graphic design studio, Buttercup Ink.

Letterpress overview

This design involved extensive consultation in the design phase. The large solid areas and heavy text featuring alongside the finer text made this a unique project requiring a controlled variation of impression. The colour combination of red and grey required precise registration to avoid an unwanted third colour. The shape of the solid areas on an uncoated cotton stock required accurate ink control for thick, even colour coverage.
