Base Art Co Business Cards

The folks over at Base Art Co do some great work ranging from book covers to responsive web design, though our favorite project is probably these business cards they designed for themselves and sent our way for production.

A card comprised of two stocks that we custom duplexed together after printing, the final weight of this card ended up being a sturdy 320# cover. The white side of the card is Crane Lettra Flo White 220# cover stock with hit of tonal letterpress varnish, while the grey is French Durotone Steel Grey 100# cover letterpress printed with a silver ink and white foil. After duplexing and getting trimmed down to their slightly undersized dimensions of 3″ x 1.75,” a bright yellow edge color was applied, which added a splash of color in addition to hiding the seam of the custom duplex.
