Design: Letterpress + Digital
Letterpress doesn't always have to stand off on its own.
Over the years, I have frequently worked with the delightfully talented designer Precious Bugarin, of Precious Bugarin Design. Precious is well-versed in design for print, and often utilizes high-end digital printing or offset to showcase her clean, modern style. These baby announcements, however, were perfectly suited to letterpress printing.
The bold, graphic type printed in two spot colors becomes almost object-like in its gentle impression into the paper, and the choice of a die-cut digital photo print tipped-on to the announcement extends the tactile nature of the card. As usual with Precious' designs, this was a pleasure to print.
