Dogwood Zamboni Print

We drink a lot of coffee around here (more than we should probably admit to) and it’s all from our friends over at Dogwood Coffee. We regularly print their labels and last summer they asked us to create a poster to commemorate the release of their cold brew, named after the legendary ice resurfacing machine, the Zamboni (for those of you who don’t live in hockey central like we do, here’s a little video that explains exactly what a Zamboni does).

Dogwood was able to obtain the original patent for the machine and asked that we use it as the focal point of the design. We were only too happy to oblige, as the line work in the schematic sketches was ideal for letterpress printing (line work prints much cleaner than flat areas of color). The final design was letterpress printed using two inks on Crane Lettra Ecru 110# cover stock.

All projects produced in our shop are custom. If you are interested in obtaining a quote for printing or design services, please use the request an estimate feature on our website.


    • This is awesome. The details look great with letterpress!

    • I saw your Dogwood poster and would like to invite you to submit it to our PaperSpecs gallery as it is a beautiful usage of paper – and amazingly creative! This curated online space is giving much-deserved recognition and visibility to the very best in design and printing excellence (and it’s free to submit). I welcome you to submit any other unique uses of paper as well.
