IMPORTANT - Digital printing considerations


Digital printing has a slightly shinier look than offset.To keep the natural matte finish of the paper, we recommend using a light coverage artwork where the background remains mostly white.


For optimal results, we strongly recommend that you don't use large solid printed areas or gradients. Avoid banding issues by using paper’s natural color as a background rather than printing a full solid color. 




IMPORTANT - Letterpress printing considerations>


Letterpress printing is not suitable for every project. If your project is not appropriate for letterpress printing, you may take a look at our offset printed cards. 



  • Paper, color and imprint has variations from piece to piece because of the manual nature of letterpress printing.

  • Colors are printed one at a time. Letterpress is great for 1 or 2 color jobs. Pantones only, no CMYK.

  • Letterpress is meant to be used for minimal ink coverage. Large solid areas are far from ideal.

  • Depth of impression can vary depending on the image coverage and the paper selection.

  • No halftones, no gradients, no photos. Solid colors only.

  • Vector or high quality tiff files only. No JPEGs please.

  • Width of lines must be a minimum of 0.25pt.

  • 6pt sans serif minimum font size. Reverse type minimum font size is 12pt or it can clog up.

Printing process

Letterpress printing

Our letterpress cards are printed on a traditional printing press that is over 100 years old. Each color require a separate press run. With this method, a plate with a raised image is inked and pressed to the surface of the paper creating a relief printing similar to debossing.

Foil Stamping

Foil stamping is the application of pigment or metallic foil to paper where a heated die is stamped onto the material, making it stick to the surface leaving the design of the die on the paper. We can combine foil with embossing to create a more striking 3D image. We offer 16 different colors of foil stamping.

Important - Please read

Because it requires a separate press run, a tolerance of +/- 1/64 inch is standard for registration of foil to printing graphic. Although we make all efforts to perfectly align the foil to the print, a shift of up to 1/64" may occur. Please keep that in mind when creating the artwork.

Please avoid very fine lines and small typeface. Be sure the space between the lines in the design is not too narrow.

Foil stamping cost includes a maximum surface of 3 square inch (For example, 3 sq. in. can be 2"X1.5" or 3"X1"). Oversize foiling requires special attention, is more time consuming and requires a larger die. Therefore, extra cost will apply for surface larger than 3 square inch.

We do not charge set-up fees or platemaking fees. Foil stamping dies are one-time use only, and the die is recycled after use.
