37 Beautiful Letterpress Business Cards

by on 5th June 2009 with 27 Comments

Designing business cards can be tricky, because it’s always difficult to make one which stands out from the hundreds of others in circulation! Letterpress definitely brings a new dimension to business cards.

If you are looking to have a few printed, here are a range of catchy letterpress designs for inspiration. The idea of depth and an embossed logo add a completely new element, and could well be the best way to really make an impression.

    These designs are so nice, but 1 quesion or maybe a few who are the printers. Can anyone direct me to companies that offer these services? Thanks :)

    Nice collection :)

  12. Most of these cards are printed so hard that they shouldn’t even count as letterpress … they should count as emboss. Any real printer would be in tears. Shame on all of you for not learning how to do something properly, and then promoting it as a “success” to others.

    very nice collection, but too expensive products. It’s very important the business card, and it’s possible to have a big marketing tool with an original but cheap business cards. For example with a transparent business card. Here a gallery: http://picasaweb.google.com/pinkograf.da/PlasticBusinessCardsPinkograf#

    You should shut your mouth Kristian… or I will shut it for you.

    Unlike these beautiful examples, your work is completely limp.

    Go back to printing sales promos… you hack.

  17. Yummy!!!

    I recently discovered Brixx Letterpress. The quality I can vouch for and their website makes it super easy to place an order. No need to wait for a quote cause they have upfront pricing. Just select what you need and upload your file on checkout. Kinda like Sticker Mule but for letterpress printing. They also do postcards and wedding invitations.

    Here’s the link: http://www.brixxletterpress.com

    They’re really friendly too.

  18. Awesome collection and good inspiration! Thanks!

    Hello – This is perfectly correct – but as a “traditional printer” I really like the heavy debossing effect – gives a card so much character and lifts it to another level from all the mass produced cards.

    Great designs !

    Lindas muestras muy pocas persona pagan por esa calidad. Yo sugiero hacer machotes con logos embozados en relieve para grandes empresas y luego imprimir los cambios de informacion en offset. Ya que ahora todo es impresión digital. Para encontrar diferenciación en lo que hacen todos. Esto no garantiza la venta pero si diferencia.
