I found these amazing business cards on Card Observer today that demonstrate what I hope is a growing trend in edge painted letterpress. The company who created the thicker-than-average board cuts was Blush, a printing studio in the UK, and they collaborated with The Ubiquitous Manufacturing Company in designing the gray cards. A flash of turquoise around the edges was the finishing touch to make them pop out even more. Best of all: they were made from 100% recyclable material!
Ubiquitous is a digital creative agency in the UK that combines design and technology to create meaningful, strategic technological solutions for its clients. If ever there was a desire to stand out from the crowd, these cards eat the cake. I feel that their thick consistency is like a firm handshake, letting their customers know that they're being well taken care of.
