Kirkwood McLean cards

By August 20, 2012Letterpress, Prints

I had the opportunity to make some business cards for a friend last week who was beginning life as boss of his own architecture company, Kirkwood McLean. Based on their design I was able to print the simple cards using black on Crane’s Lettra. It was a bit tricky as they required such small text, which was effectively acting as a creasing rule and kept trying to fold the stock as it hit the forme. This was solved with a quick reduction in the packing and adding a gripper finger closer to the print area. I think they turned out quite well!
