Wisconsin Cheese Poster

Cricket Design Works, located in Madison Wisconsin (the cheese capital of the world… at least in our eyes) designed this awesome poster for eatwisconsincheese.com. You may remember some of the other projects that Cricket has sent our way in the past, but this poster is probably one of the most coveted prints around the shop due to our over-the-top obsession with cheese.

This was letterpress printed using three inks on Crane Lettra 110# Cover stock, a cotton fiber stock that is one of Studio On Fire’s favorites due to the impression depth we can achieve on the soft surface. Be sure to take a a little time to check out the illustrations, they were created with a lot of attention to detail, however they’re pretty forgiving on registration due to their sketchy nature.

 

 

Cricket Design Works Herb & Spice Prints

Cricket Design Works is a full-service visual communications consultancy based out of Madison, Wisconsin. We printed their multi-colored business cards a few years back and completed this tasty poster duo for them just this past winter.

Appealing to both our eyes and taste buds, these illustrative posters were letterpress printed on Crane Lettra Pearl White cotton stock  wtih three inks, a green, an orange, and a brown common to both versions. Nestled amongst a massive amount of foodie knowledge, the illustrations keep solid areas of color to a minimum, really showing off the letterpress impression with some hand drawn line work.

 

Multiple Colored Paper Business Cards

One of the best ways to get lots of color in a letterpress project is to print a colored paper. For these business cards Cricket Design Works in Madison, WI chose three colors for some extra vibrant variety in their design.

The paper is all custom duplexed from French Paper Poptone colors. We love the color options and small quantity availability of this paper line. These cards are printed on Gumdrop Green, Wild Cherry and Blu Raspberry each pasted to Poptone Sweet Tooth White on the opposite site for a 200lb heavy weight. The cards were printed with a metallic silver ink first, then overprinted in black. The same artwork and ink colors were used for all three business cards on the press sheets. (Everyone received all three colors.) This made the project more budget friendly since all we had to do was change out paper stock while running the prints – no extra wash ups or ink color changes.
